Please stop putting Gardner in at QB
Woooo, yeah Fitz TD on a multiple QB formation.
To quote a great philosopher: "How does Borges' ASS taste, OP?"
This shit didnt work against MSU and wont work against ohio, iowa or neb
But it worked against Purdue, i.e. the team Michigan was playing today.
it's 29-7, Michigan is outgaining Purdue 424-192 in yards, and the Devin-Denard formations have clearly been unsuccessful.
two theories borges has uber genius ideas or their preparing for the invediable denard injury.
If that is the case, and the strategy is borne out later on in the season, then I'm with you on this.
4 games to go, Denard in much better shape than last year.
And those 535 yards of total offense were highly ineffective in the 34 point offensive showing.
Nebraska is just laying the Pipe on Sparty, It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!! 24 - 3
This is some post.
Everything about it is perfect.
Would love to see them let Devin spread the ball around a little bit.
Yeah, he's a better pass punter than Denard too.
Tom Brady and Elvis Grbac weren't very good as Freshman either, and that is essentially what Devin is.
That's why they didn't put Brady in every three plays for a "change of pace" during the '97 season.
all thirteen seasons of Friends.
I wish my jungle juice was as strong as the one you drank this morning...
"Oh no start Gardner...." - MGoBoard last week.
Agreed. Please for the love of god stop putting devin in. Dumb
It's terrible. Please, it's not helping either player. Devin is clearly not ready. I realize it opens the run by forcing the D to focus on where Denard is lined up but it's only a matter of time before it's been figured out. If I can see the two plays coming I'm sure opposing coaches will too.
Why is anyone bitching about the coaches or the decisions they make? Sometimes it seems like if Michigan won every game 75-0, someone would still find a reason to whine.
Why not just trust and support your coaching staff? We have been lucky that Denard hasn't missed a game yet, and that all he has sustained so far are "boo-boos." Devin needs some playing time in case he is needed. He is the backup, and needs to be ready to step in if anything bad happens.
I trust the staff to make what they feel are the best decisions. They are doing a pretty good job so far.
Devin needs to be mixed in. he clearly has the talent to play alot in a couple years as a starter. The coaches know you have to get him snaps so a. he doesnt transfer, b. he is ready if Drob goes down, c. it obviously can confuse a defense if they can execute. someday soon this kid is going to be dropping accurate long balls..you know the ones we havent seen in 3 1/2 season? the kid has earned some time if you ask me. Good luck and health to both our QB's. GO BLUE
He goes in if we are up 21 in the second half. He kills the rhythm and my buzz.
Lets see, game was in hand at the half, it was homecoming, team is 7 -1 with most of the same players we watched in that bowl game last year. Damn these coaches!
Oh, and freshmen starting on defense - wow. They did a nice job and the experience should pay off in the future.
Maybe the OP is pointing towards that 2-play sequence where Denard steps in to a nice third and long pass, converts it, and is then replaced on 1st down by Devin, who arm-punts it.
And I haven't seen any good arguments yet as to why it was actually a good idea.
Ii think the same thing but I can also see denard coming in motion against ohio state and the throwback to denard from devin for a td. I mean the throwback to smith today shouldve been a touchdown. Seems to work just fine to me, the problem is we have two talented QB's who love to compete and always want to make too big of a play sometimes instead of making better decisions. Thats the reason we have so many INT's.
He's not ready to be the featured QB, I think, but the misdirection plays in which he has been taking the snap are looking better and becoming more effective. We managed some pretty good yardage on a few of them today. Yeah, the turnover after the pass early on stung, but nothing came of it. With practice and game time, this is mitigated.
tl;Dr/idc. denard throws that what ... 25yrd or so completion and Devin comes in... and throws a pick. that's dumb. denard throwing into a spy lb/safety with a man on the wr. bad decision.
I like the sweep options but don't have Devin throw without some quick rhythm short outs.
I like the fact that Gardner is getting snaps because it's helping him develop and it's making our offense more diverse. You may not see it now but down the road you will also get a great play from Devin in the offense that will be one of the 6-8 plays that change the game. In the future when Devin is the primary quarterback I will be happy knowing the young man has some valuable game experience to help him succeed early on.
