The Michigan home crowd has not quite forgotten the days of kicking futility.
Michigan-Northwestern Open Thread
Did Denard just congratulate Devin with his injured arm and hurt himself? Come on man!
He almost lost his headset.
I saw Wellman come and tell him to knock it off.
However, he didn't hurt himself...he reached for the cord on his headseat so it didn't fall off his head.
Has anyone noticed devins ability to hard count and draw the defense offsides. He given the offense opportunties for free plays down field.
Devin Gardner is playing quarterback?
Come on, we're all watching the game like you are.
ive noticed you are a jerk.
It's the 10th game of the year!
Ever since Mattison came we have changing the way we line up based on the strength of the offense.
We dodged a bullet on that flag there. Thanks zebras.
no we didn't. colter was in bounds and jumped. just because he landed out of bounds doesn't make it illegal
He was trying to make a play...not running out of bounds or throwing it away.
its not illegal to hit a player before going out of bounds. when roh slammed him down he was still in bounds based on where he jumped
best NON - FIRSTROW online stream?
Living in Koera, firstfow doesn't work here. For some reason, I can find only one stream, and the quality is poor.
DG is very heady and instinctive. Just has it.
Let's pray that we get 2 more years with him at QB. Allow Shane to start as a RS Sophomore.
Denard wouldn't have scrambled in that play. That's a huge difference.
Yeah because you can predict his actions so well. Lets stop this denard>Gardner and Gardner>Denard thing, we are lucky to have both and both have their skill sets.
Well since Denard has scrambled like once in 9 games the odds are in my favor. You are an idiot if you don't agree that he NEVEr scrambles. Even Brian created a meme for it as well as dedicated a question in the mailbag responding to it. Yes,maybe by fluke he would have somehow ran when his busy of work to date suggests otherwise. Denard is a below average-intelligence QB. Deal with it.
Now we really have to cringe every time Devin takes off. If he goes down, our offense is in the hands of a guy who was originally a 4th string walk-on.
We just tried running up the middle for 1. Now what?
Nice punt Fitz.
Damn it. Fitz continues to have a great year. I miss Hart.
Was an awesome big yard run, except for that fumble.
Bench Fitz. He is an idiot.
You're an idiot.
Lloyd Brady was NOT happy with that fumble! Anyone else see the replay?
What a momentum killer.....
Unforgivable. How about some ball security in traffic?
Where is the tackling? We were just about to force a punt. These guys look like they are wearing concrete boots today!
Sweet tackling angles.
This offensive line just doesn't have it this year. Gardner has no time.
This just in. Devin is good.
Our Fullback stance seems like he is not ready to explode forward to lead block but stands up then runs? Anyone know more about why his stance may be like this?
Our WRs aren't helping DG today.
We need at least 3 points...
Aren't helping out 12
Back to the shotgun.
Kid can play some football.
The announcers keep saying how excited the coaching staff is about DG. Hmmmm, so excited they had him 3rd string only 2 weeks ago.
He wasn't better than Denard. And he was our #1 or #2 WR...the coaches did nothing wrong.
"Wasn't" or "isn't"? I'm a huge Denard fan but I'm starting to question if this is a better team with Gardner.
You realize who Denard has played and who Devin has played...right?
Denard DOMINATES lesser comp. Devin's played lesser comp.
Again. With his legs. He is inept otherwise When you can't string together more than three or so basic throws, Borges can get no rhythm with play calling. Denard threw 1-2 interceptions the first 5 or 6 games of the year if I remember correctly... I hate bad mouthing Denard, but it is the blind faithful that almost forces me to point these things out. Denard is a great ambassador to Michigan and a great kid from what I've seen. But his QB play as a whole is not conducive to winning tough games aside from those we put out by living on a prayer (eg Notre Dame, MSU).
I think Gardner's biggest strength is that he understands down and distance...and knows how to just get first downs.
Not saying Denard doesn't, but I just think Gardner is better at saying "too risky, I'll pull it down or take my checkdown"
I don't think he was looking to get a first down on that last play, but pull it, and see what happens. If anything, he picks up 6 yards and we kick a FG.
Devin is overall a much more composed player. Doesn't really seem to get rattled by pressure, 3rd and longs, broken plays, etc.
Denard wasn't playing Minnesota and N'Western's defense. He typically destroyed lesser teams.
