Couldn't agree more with #5. There have been times not long ago when it seemed our punt returners could not field punts consistently at all. Roberts did a very good job of making sure he caught the ball first.

AMEN.....my primary concern it just make good decisions about where and when to catch the ball....and then CATCH THE BALL.....anything after that is a bonus....

6. Working out the kinks. Auburn should never schedule anyone that is remotely a threat for our first game. We have, in my time of watching, never looked stellar after week one. It's nice for Stidham and others to get their goofs out of the way this past week. Stidham had Happy feet, Slayton "best hands on the team" had some drops, and Carlson "automatic" got out two misses that he was more than capable of making. Do it now and come into next week "awake" in a sense.

 

#6!! Agree 100%

Can't touch on this enough. Roberts will take one home. Just watch . Fantastic special teams work on that

#10. One of my favorite things is to go back and read the in game threads. It's good for a few laughs.

Everytime I actually get to attend a game I'll read it while the misses drives us home. Have to respect the passion I suppose!

I'm still excited by what JS brings to the table in the passing game. It's something we've been missing for years and has really hurt us against the better competition that could successfully stack the box to stop the run.  I just really, really want us to start using the trio of Davis, NCM and McClain more.  Kind of like having a sports car in the garage, but you never get to drive it.   :)

Game day threads are the same on any forum. People are just posting in the moment, no time for reflection. I've been on some flash chat game time conversations during Saint's games. It's pretty fun when you don't have any other fans around.

Luckily for me I go to all of the games that are in a reasonable distance from Atlanta (3 hours) so I don't have to read people freaking out that don't post anything with substance.  And when I get home I am too tired to go on the forum. 

Very good OP though.  I hope to see more from you after games!

You get the missus to drive while you read a football forum? That's impressive.?

4. Sal being used for a big play. While he later pulled the Gus-patented disappearing act, I'm still optimistic that we will finally utilize a Tight End in our game plans.

This would be the only point I would slightly disagree on. The only catch the TE made was on an extended play. I'm not sure he was the original target.  I think he did have one other drop.  It seems we do have a sort of TE on the field at times. But I'm not sure the TE is as much a part of the plan as he should be. I hope this isn't the case.

And where is the big guy? He caught two passes last season for two TDs. He is tall enough to pull down some quick hitters.

Hopefully we will see more of a traditional TE look as the season progresses. I think it could be a huge weapon.

I'm always befuddled by the existence of game threads. Who wants to be typing on a computer or phone when AU is playing football? Madness, I say!

8. Jeff Holland is a monster and this was his coming out party. We desperately needed an edge rusher and if he plays this way all year he'll have a tremendous impact. I love when it finally clicks for some kids.

Totally respect this opinion, and actually agree with it to some extent; however, I am not an Xs and Os guy and I am not adept at seeing all the smaller details of any given play while watching it live. So sometimes I plug in during the game to see if anyone sheds any light on certain situations. The strip sack on Stidham the other night is a good example.

I do have to cop to usually leaving a dumb post or two while I'm there. 

But yeah... I hear ya.

I turn to the game thread during live games when I'm either a.) watching the game at home alone (or with just the wife, who couldn't care less about football) or b.) am in a crowd of mostly other-school fan bases. In either case, I don't have immediate access to any fellow Auburn brethren with whom I can celebrate (or commiserate) so that's where you guys come in.

... and of course there is the other reason for me ... I don't have any friends, y'all are a captured audience and I can't tell when I'm being ignored!

... all pluses in my book during a game.
