19 for 22 (86.4%)
173.1 QB rating
Not bad for a Quarterback who can't throw : )
Also 198 yards on the ground, 1 TD, 6.9 YPC and NO TURNOVERS!!!!
so absurd, I really couldn't believe how accurate his passing was. He still looks fragile, and it scares me though
he was way more accurate than i thought he would be. but no deep throws (except maybe the pass to terrence robinson)
Lots of screens and short stuff, but he was accurate. Locked on to his receiver a bit, though, so that will hurt against better D's. Will be interesting to see how he plays in a couple of weeks as teams get more tape on him and gameplan, but a great first start for Robinson.
And he did lock in a bit at times. But he was also doing a pretty good job being patient waiting for the (typically RB) clear the LBs out of their zones to complete those 7 yard slant routes. His passes were very crisp and had a lot of zip, but still not sure about touch on deep passes or anything toward the boundary. His first pass was pretty close to a pick six. Not perfect, but very solid and I'm sure everyone is happy with the performance, but like always, there are corrections to make.
Can't wait for WolverineHistorian's video of the game to pop up on youtube.
Although most of his passes were short like previously stated, it has to be a big confidence builder for the young QB. I know it's really easy to say this now but I did figure Michigan would pull this one out but thought the score would be a little closer than it was. Robinson looked really good and as anyone in the Big Ten knows, he can move.
Right now, I'm still thinking the same thing with both my team and yours; "How will this offense perform against better competition" (which is pretty much anybody). It appears both QB's improved greatly over the off-season but can they be durable. Pryor has the size advantage but is coming off surgery to his knee. Robinson, to my knowledge has not had any major previous injuries but like a poster previously mentioned, looked fragile.
sorry for the double post.
Not only did Denard have an exceptional game. He did A LOT on third down. That is what I thought was most incredible.
He had a couple of completions were my first thought was, "oh crap, intercepted." However, I underestimated his accuracy and arm strength as he placed them perfectly and just enough zip. Here is to Denard! Go Blue!
Loved the fake screen and toss to TRob. Great touch on that ball. One of the better plays I have seen in a while.
His accuracy was very impressive. It was also nice to see our receivers hang on to everything thrown their way (the DBs need a little work in that area). I do want to see more downfield passing, but today it was pretty windy so I can understand why that wasn't a big part of the gameplan.
Watching Denard run with the ball is just fun. You could hear the crowd surge in anticipation everytime he turned the corner. We are going to have to cut down on the total number of carries, though.
