I have full confidence in RR to get the job done. Unfortunately I've succumbed to a lot of the talk out there that RR won't establish an intricate down field passing game. Maybe that's not to be expected in this offense, but I thoroughly believe it's necessary to have an effective down field passing game to compete with top teams.
You won't run the ball with ease against everybody. Go back to the OSU game and look how good of a game plan the staff had when the running game was completely shut down. Michigan has no trouble landing top offensive prospects from OL, to QB, to WR, so let's use them.
I'm probably being an alarmist but I'm worried about guys like Stonum becoming one of the greatest under used players to put on a Michigan uniform. Remember, I have full confidence in RR to get the job done. I understand that of 4 starting QB's we have had 3 freshmen and one walk-on start. Hard for any team to have a great passing game when you couple that with a patch work OL.
Just look at our RB situation. Yes it's very early, but we have the most inexperienced backfield I've seen at Michigan in a long time. Conversely we have a lot of promise in a young accurate QB Forcier, all the TE's back, and an experienced WR corps returning. I know RR isn't dumb, he knows what he's doing. But, this is just off season boredom mixed with something I've wondered over since RR was hired.
What I want to know is if anyone has reason to believe that Michigan will beef up the passing game? What are some of the reports from practice? Do you guys expect the offense to evolve a significant amount as time goes on?
