*Temple is better (has better players) than we are.
*Our Oline is really bad. #70 should be sent back from whence he came
*James Graham is our best QB and should get most of the snaps from now on. Tobias should be moved to Plan B.
*Our receivers are scart. We juggle balls and dive for passes they should catch in stride.
*Why do we continue to make so many mental mistakes? Why do we try to run back kickoffs instead of take the freebee to the 25 yard line? Why can't we field a punt?
*Jamious Griffin needs to play a lot more at RB. Jordan does not cut back against the grain when he needs to. He is a tough inside runner, a natural BB, but is not fast enough to run laterally.
*Its gonna be a long year. We need to play more of the younger players to get them game experience.

Does the citadel have better players than us, do we have better players than USF?

Do we burn redshirts or not?

We were about even with Temple on talent (which isn’t a complement)

JG is our best passer but needs to settle down. TO moves the ball better because he is a better scrabbler.

Mason is a good back. Did he get hurt? Is that when our O fell apart?

We haven't been shut out at home since the 1950's. UGAg will probably shut us out this season.

I’m glad CDP took the fans advice, played to our “strengths” lol. There was a reason TO was being shuttled in and out. Defense solid today, but must be great. Both TDs were dilute Campbell not staying outside.
We are talented but it is not in the right places. Defoors & Southers show why they had to move of from their previous programs and i thought Kenny Cooper was going to get TO killed.

give James the reigns and let him work

1. Defense looks great, except Glanton keeps nailing us with timely penalties. But we can't pull him for it because we're paper-thin at DT. Thacker is going to be a HC before long.

2. Harvin will be punting on Sundays.

3. This is supposed to be an NFL-style offense. So we were told. Has Patenaude ever watched an NFL game? Because I don't know of any NFL teams that have no snaps from under center on, say... 4th and 2. You'd think we'd try some screens or bootlegs when your OL is a sieve but you have a roster full RBs. That's what the Falcons did a lot of in 2016 when the line was hurt and we had a pair of very good tailbacks. Speaking of which...

4. PNode is lying through his teeth every time he says we'll adjust to what's working and the offense is based on the players, not a scheme. There is zero consideration of the players' skills here when James Graham and Tobias Oliver get the same play calls no matter who is in. It sounds like this is what he did at Temple too... talk about fitting the players, but spend all his game time trying to hammer round pegs into his vanilla square hole.
