    Pump The Brakes!

    I always tell people looking back, the offensive line back in 2014 was really not good run blocking wise. I used to say horrendous but then Ive seen the past few lines we've fielded, and well... but for whatever reason, they just lost most of their will with Robinson gone and I think its really when we knew Grimes wasn't a long term answer. Their pass blocking skills were miles better than the current crop we have now, but overall they seemed like smarter and better players too. Itd be nice if we could get a young OL GA thats been somewhere with good technique to come here and be a transition from JB in the next 2-3 seasons. side note: Auburn has got to stop allowing itself to be jobbed in big seasons. Bama or UGA's programs would blow up the SEC's office in anger if they had moments like our 2014 MSU game, 2014 A&M ending, 2018 LSU, the missed PI last night. We just seem content to get pooped on. I watched highlights of Muschamp's "tirades" here and I really miss him, he made those refs accountable no matter the opponent

    I know it's only been two games but...

    Stidham reminds me alot of Josh Rosen to where if they just never had football, life would still be pretty great, and maybe that plays a factor. Stidham is a TX kid who probably loved seeing the flashy big time B12 offenses and maybe its a culture shock being here and playing this agonizing, gritty pace/style of play, who knows. I cant say he doesnt love the game, but maybe he doesnt love this particular variation of it we play.

    people feel like a QB change is the fix

    Like I said, its an anointing you get from the league, not college production. He hasnt been any worse than Allen last year and was universally known as a top 4 prospect coming in. It doesnt matter how you do, pundits and NFL scouts are not going to admit they're wrong after giving you that status. I personally think you'll see some combo of Haskins, Grier, Stidham, Lock and Herbert as the top 5 off the board, thats 3 guys who produced well and have the tools, one guy who played for a lesser talented team but showed flashes, and one guy thats thought to have all the talent but played underwhelmingly on a good team.

    if you watched any josh allen or josh rosen game, its pretty much the same thing. Im glad it'll get us our first round QB in a while, but usually the media picks a handful of guys early on and those guys are teflon don regardless of how overrated they are. It does hurt having to put an AUB QB in that bracket, but if we were just discussing college production, Stidham wouldnt even be a top 15 QB prospect

    Fromm really is one injury away from being forced out tbh. even though Smart usually is as lenient as his father, err teacher, Saban in giving the starter every chance ahead of a more talented incumbent, Justin is just an incredible talent and would make them even more diverse. They'd honestly truly be the Bama of the East, and man, the media would be COMPLETELY unbearable then.

    I saw Cox help a couple times but usually he has to cover the inside almost immediately which typically leads to our favorite edge blitzes and Stidham having to run 1.5s after the ball's snapped. I agree though, I was hoping they'd make wholesale changes to the interior because although Kim was the worst, he wasn't the only issue thus far.

    A&M is still just too centralized around Monde throwing the ball right now. Jimbo is trying to modernize his game but when his QB isnt able to throw well in a game, it gets the whole offense behind the 8 ball and Bama just took the run away from him. We have the tools to do the same thing, I just dont know if we can get the monkey off our back that is them in JHS. I felt ALOT more confident about that when I thought we had a decent OLine and they had an undertalented front

    If the SEC wasnt horrid outside of the top 2 and UK, this would be a really bad season for us. But UT is awful, Fitzgerald has regressed more than Stidham if you can believe that, and we dont play anyone else of note until UGA and UGA. This being only a 3 loss regular season is gonna be a misnomer looking back

    Are we gonna take UK's offensive line with him too?

    Now obviously, we're mostly in unison than the OL just isnt good. That goes without saying. But the secondary issue for alot of people, something that's rising to succeed even the Gus playcalling is Jarrett's impotence with noticing receivers deep. I'll preface it with this, I have called for the backup QB often in years since Nick. 2015 was a wash whoever was back there, but 2016, I felt that between KP and Kerryon, plus the speed sweep, using JF3 in spurts to boost the run game would've helped Auburn. In 2017, I felt that using Willis in the red zone would've helped our issues down there more than forcing KJ, who was often running hurt in that area, or letting JS run around aimlessly, refusing to take a shot. But in 2018, I don't think the alternatives remedy the problems. Here's why: 1. The lack of a QB running presence: Would this open the game up for the RBs a little more, maybe make it easier for the OLine? Yeah, on paper. BUT, you have to have that throwing threat. We'd need either Gatewood to show he's improved in that regard or hope that Willis has revitalized his ability to read the game. He seems neutered in that regard (more because of Gus than himself, but I digress). Plus the OL hasnt shown the ability to hold up on the edge and the interior isnt going to be good this year. If they just stack the box, the RO is going to be food against UA or UGA. 2. The deep ball disappearing: Has Stidham been horrendous throwing deep? Yes. Has Auburn tried to remedy it with a few different looks? Yes. Has it worked? Well... I think Stidham has been completely demoralized mentally by the pressure in his face combined with having to think over everything deep. He just second and third guesses his passes so much that we dont even get to see the WRs shine when they are working to get open. Now sometimes, they dont work for him after things break down, thats a fact. But between the ASU game, couple times in the LSU game and today, we have to blame him at least more than the receivers, maybe not as much as the OLine though. Its another fact: when Stidham has a clear pocket and a clear mind, hes as dangerous as anybody. When he doesn't, he's one of the worst field generals in the SEC. But who are you replacing him with? Willis isnt allowed to run the passing game, Gatewood has a cannon but who knows how accurate he is, and Sandberg..If someone can give me like 2 reasons why Sandberg is a better passing option than Stidham, im willing to listen. 3. Gus: I think its a disservice to yourself to think Gus is going to adjust to the offense to the backups, he doesn't even adjust it to the guy starting right now. It took him a year and a half to get the offense THIS developed to work around Jarrett. When Sean got hurt and JF3 had to come in, the only experience he had throwing was screens and like one slant. Guess what he ran against Vandy? When Jeremy came in against Bama the previous year, Gus tried to basically run the same offense as Sean, but what strengths JJ had wasn't found in developing plays. He worked best with quick short throws (not screens) and had a strong arm. Didnt like getting hit which made him pretty useless running sometimes, but we're not here to rag on JJ. the point is, Gus is going to run generally the same offense that he runs for the starter as for whoever else. This is a really long read, but its my personal opinion on why I dont think changing the QB would fix this sinking ship unless wholesale changes were made along with it.

    Cam was throwing to Terell Zachery IN COLLEGE better than your boy Jarrett to these 4/5 stars IN COLLEGE. no reason to compare the pressure of the NFL to aimless passes against Arky. I will say that last missed deep pass was on the refs not him though

    refs aside in the former case, those two teams outhearted the squad they were facing. I really been on a tear of praising Bama, which I hate, but you're not gonna outheart Bama's offense, you're gonna have to actually be better. UGA, IDK what to say about them thus far 2010-2013 Spurrier would've went 11-1 at worst with this schedule and this talent

    the worst part is we're recruiting like that type of team and just refusing to use the talent in such a way lol

    The OL isnt good but neither is Jarrett, I just feel for the receivers and RBs at this point
