Don’t make me come up there.Never said a word against Sims (or any other student athlete on our team).
My (and others’) criticism of Collins has been and continues to be just. Tonight was an awesome win and was fun to watch, but one win does not a “turn-around” make.
Keep my crow in the fridge until next week.
It was obvious UNC didnt have a defensive answer for Sims' running ability in the open field. Yates can run, but not at Sims' gamebreaking open field level.Clemson wasn't prepared for our defensive scheme, UNC didn't prep for Sims. What can we do against a Pitt team that won't take us lightly.
Came here to post the same thing. I’ll eat crow for not thinking he could put together a game like last night this early in his career. And hats off to the coaching staff for letting Yates keep the starting spot he earned, and only transitioning to Sims when needed. Sims has now earned the starting spot back, and that’s the way things should be - earned on the field.I always thought Sims had a much higher ceiling than Yates, but was concerned with how indecisive and turnover-prone he'd been. Seems like a little time seeing things from the sidelines may have helped him. If he can consistently play close to the level he played tonight, he will won us a lot of games and make Patenaude look like a genius.
Kid is special, and he just outplayed one of the top ranked QBs in the upcoming draft.
We saw the pre-season “hype” Sims last night. He was a different player after his 3rd series. He came in & scored the TD when inexplicably UNC left the whole middle of the field open, then the nothing drive kneel to run out the half & finally the 5 play drive where Dontae had 2 runs for a first down followed by some head scratchers. I have to admit I was worried there, but we stopped UNC on downs and then Sims took over. He was nearly unstoppable the rest of the game. Brought back memories of JT and Lil’ Joe. Whatever someone did between drives 3 & 4, bottle it and have it ready.He is gonna ride the Yates train until the end. I have absolutely nothing against Yates. He just is not the QB that is going to take us to the next level of competition.
Last night is going to go a long way with recruits. Sims game in and way dynamic. The defense was swarming and opportunistic. When we get to the Clemson/UGAg level of recruiting - and we will being in Atlanta - we are going to own the ACC and at for Natty's
Yep. PJ knows more X’s and O’s than 99% of any CFB coach who has ever coached the game. But fact is GT had one of, if not the weakest roster of all P5 teams when CGC took over. There are very few good coaches that would have accepted that challenge.I’ve said the entire time that you’re blinded with CPJ sunglasses if you can’t see the improvement in this team talent level and what the potential is down the road. Impatient bitches cant wait the necessary time it takes to rebuild after the triple option all-in commitment.
Completely agree. Seems to have a lot more confidence in the offense we run with Sims, and takes his effort to the next levels. It also helps that lanes start to open for the RB’s when the offense moves like it did under Sims last night, so he gets to show out a bit more.Gibbs seemed different when Sims was in. He still has trouble blocking, but he appeared to run harder than when Yates is in. Maybe I’m wrong, but the effort definitely seemed higher.
He made throws (with and without pressure) and out athleted people that Yates simply cannot do.If you didn’t see the difference between first and second half o-line idk wht to tell ya
Nothing sims was doing helped the o-line.. they created space and gaps unlike first halfHe made throws (with and without pressure) and out athleted people that Yates simply cannot do.
He made the OL look like they made some game altering stride. You’re just not wanting to be wrong on the Internet to argue otherwise.
This is so stupid. He fooled at least twice the freakin camera on the zone read. He hits the edge sooner. He either over powered or ran by people. He hit McGown on a roll out to his right, flushed from the pocket, and with a defender on his heels for huge 3rd down.Nothing sims was doing helped the o-line.. they created space and gaps unlike first half
