I see so, so many people complaining about the lack of a steady offensive concept, and an effective one, and I'm trying to understand the complaints as they relate to this year. I want to know what other people think as far as how the loss of a record setter affects a team going forward.
The past four years, Denard Robinson has been the face of Michigan Football. When the offense was working, he was amazing. When the offense wasn't working, he was still amazing. How many times did a play or an entire game almost fall apart entirely only to become "DO SOMETHING DENARD! Oh, wow... did you see what he did? DID YA!?!"
What I want to know is, what do fans think is a reasonable amount of time for a program to find its identity going forward following four years of DENARD DO SOMETHING football? Pre season? One game? Four? One Season?
I personally think that once you no longer have, nor expect to have, Denard Robinson\ in your backfield, it makes sense that you would at first try to go the other way, to bring some sense into your game, since so often, plays with Denard made no sense, and that's what made them awesome. I would, in fact, expect somewhere between one half and one full season, the team would start to figure out what works and what doesn't following four years of having a guy that made nothing and everything work.
What's your timeline?
Heading toward one of the biggest mismatches in NFL history, Esquire says Jacksonville's only chance against the Broncos is to deploy Denard (with video). Hey it can't hurt.
Wish he was getting more opportunities.
"Of course we've got to say Ohio [State's] the biggest one," Robinson said. "[Then] Notre Dame and [No. 3] Michigan State, our little brothers."
I like it I enjoy the little jabs in rivalries. It really gets State all riled up and I love seeing State fans get all mad its like watching a monster child who is 3 years old.
Was looking for highlights of Denard in his first game, and found him featured in the Jags "Wired" video. Some Denard chatter and singing, but also some field level film of him trying to get it going, Link: http://www.jaguars.com/media-gallery/videos/Jags-Wired-Denard-Robinson/ea6231e6-fc76-412c-a310-e187e3b77bef
Accoding to the Jacksonville Jaguars' twitter, Denard has changed his number back to something we are all a little more familiar with:
"You know what? We had a walk through yesterday and after the walk through he stayed after and wanted to get extra work. We had some time left over in our daily schedule and it’s very important to him. As a coach when he’s talented like he is and it’s that important to him that’s all you ask. If he’s willing to put the time in like he is and really understand the concepts and what’s important to us then he’s got a good chance." Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley on Denard Robinson.
This was in reference to:
Denard Robinson connected with Mike Brown on a 25-yard pass out of the wildcat formation. Robinson also handed off to Maurice Jones-Drew for a big play out of the same formation.
