Time in the weight room, yes, but height is NOT the issue here
What happened to Blake Countess
If he's really 6'2" then he has no ups. Everytime I see im on replays he looks much smaller than he receiver who is torching him.
Stribs had issued much pain this year.
He was on the sideline for the 2nd quarter begging to be put in, and the 2nd half I didn't even see him on the sideline.
Boo-boo message from Hoke.
He transferred in the middle of the game.
We play soft on 3rd downs, no pash rush, huge openings in middle of field on zone defenses. QBs will avoid Countess anyway and throw it at Lewis, Stribling, Avery, etc.
Countess could have been used for corner blitzes and run support on option if nothing else.
Whatever happened to Blake, Hoke blames himself.
Probably didn't have as good of a practice as the rest of the team.
during the game, kept looking for #6 and #18 across, and could only come up with #6 and #8 for play after play. I was worried about a catastrophic re-injury but didn't see anything mentioned in the presser...maybe thats because nobody specifically asked (??)
Then it dawned on me that maybe the coaches made some kind of a statement for whatever Countess did (??) which was below standard. Its a theory of course as I didn't see anything obvious.
Maybe good that Stribling got his feet wet for several quarters including the feeling of getting burned a little.
