  1. I think SW is a serviceable runner. He can move well enough to shorten or move the chains at key times if scrambling, (no designed runs). He can't take hits, gotta slide or get out of bounds. Thats ok tho alot of running qbs can't take hits, RGIII comes to mind.
  2. Im an Aaron Rodgers guy, a pocket passer with wheels. Teams worry so much about him being surgical that they forget he was once a 4.6- 4.7 runner (if not faster) until he starts running. Then the pressure is really applied to the defense. I would rather Stidham/SW run in spurts when protection breaks down instead of consistent designed runs and zone reads.
  3. SW was clearly the better qb of last year's bunch. But I still wonder why did it take so long to name him the starter? That decision wasn't really made until after the Clemson game. What were the coaches looking for to gain confidence in SW? I simply didn't see the competition he had to separate himself from.
  4. And after AU lost it's starting qb. Defense held up against everything but a talented scrambling Mayfield. But back to 'slinging it".
  5. I agree with that definition but its not always applied that way. Most, including some coaches and commentators, use it to describe run/pass totals and usage in a game.
  6. I fully agree my man!
  7. Yep, the game Nick Marshall really opened up AUs passing was against A&M. But this team hopefully can win if they leaned heavily on either run or pass. Im a Pats fan and seeing them design game plans, attacking differently week to week is refreshing. I want that for AU.
  8. Why not be a team who designs game plans week to week? If the opponent is top 10 against the run but 25th against the pass then why run a balanced offense? Yeah use the run to keep them honest but passing the ball should trump running attempts. Hopefully this offense can attack every team's defense accordingly exploiting weaknesses. No issues with 35-40 pass attempts in a game if necessary to achieve game plan.
  9. From what I read his offenses are balanced. Gus only threw 20+ percent of the time. AU needs to pass more to back the safeties up so the run game can really explode.
  10. If Saban hired him the question would then be why did Gus let him get away? He's a proven qb coach and OC who isn't afraid to throw it. Isn't that what AU needed? Or is it people just wanted Gus gone regardless?
  11. Who said they had history of using this method of traininig. Maybe he read about these kids mailing it in at workouts and wanted to change the culture in an extreme way. There's no limit on how far to push a kid but u gotta monitor that kid to make sure ur not pushing them too far. These kids had to piss cherry cola for the coaches to realize they may have taken it tooooo far.
  12. Ur talking about a labled condition that happens when u over exert the body. Thats different from not being able to lift weights or run laps. These are signs of kids not quiting even when their bodies are internally shutting down on them. I see a coach pushing the envelope at his first Power 5 team.
  13. Their new coach had them doing a rigorous military type workout. Three different kids kidneys were shutting down. I think that's a knock on Willie T. and not Helfrich.
  14. Patriots are a pro style based team who ran zone read against the Texans earlier in the season for the win. These coordinators make alot of money to decide how to incorporate formations and schemes to get the win. Not combine the two but run a certain scheme when needed during a series or drive.
  15. Please explain to me why not?
