Well done Mr. Valenti. Well done.

So true. He sure does run a lot of crossing routes where he finds the zone under the safeties in the middle of the field and Stafford throws it up where only we can get it. The problem is, he takes quite a beating on a majority of the catches. I think after a while that would wear on you and make you concentrate less on finishing the catch and more on taking the hit.

Stat Padford? Really?
Aside from that I somewhat agree, he's starting to remind me of Romo. Talented but turnover-prone. I can only hope a change to the offensive system might improve things. I don't think he's going anywhere any time soon so here's to hoping we can make it work and fast. So much talent...

Quinoa almost has no taste and we cook with it all the time. I hear this a lot though so I'm not sure what other people are doing to their quinoa. Or maybe our vegan/vegetarian taste buds are all out of whack...

I should add I enjoyed the content of this particular post and don't mind the back and forth debate. Just thought your tone was distasteful. Maybe that's just me.

I think SC's counter analysis adds never before seen depth and variety to this site. Please don't make that go away over your ego Brian. Love the work you do, don't take the process of coming to different conclusions so personally.

|40 weeks 19 hours ago||I totally agree with you.||
I totally agree with you. We've seen plays broken down before that had no real chance of success. I wouldn't put this one in that pile is all.
I could see someone saying Denard would have kept the ball and still made that player miss, thereby covering up Kerridge's inability to execute seemingly obvious assignment. (and to the bigger point, his coaches' inability to teach said ability).
I think many of us are arguing over the minute details of exactly how this offensive coaching staff is failing the team.
|40 weeks 20 hours ago||Semantics? "Adjusting||
Semantics? "Adjusting accordingly" implies the correct adjustment is made no?
|40 weeks 20 hours ago||Maybe. Maybe not. Probably||
Maybe. Maybe not. Probably not?
Either way I'm not arguing with you. Whether it's bad schemes or poor fundamentals it falls back onto coaching.
Is it weird that I'm encouraged that this play actually had a chance? I mean I could see them getting a first down here if things went right. (A first down is when we pass the line where the ball was snapped right?)
|40 weeks 20 hours ago||Kerridge whiffs the block,||
Kerridge whiffs the block, causes Fitz to stop after Devin keeps in an attempt to avoid being blowed up by incoming defender, Fitz trips up Devin by doing so and the play just kinda falls apart as Devin stumbles towards line trying to regain balance. If Kerridge gets just a piece of his man this play looks to be a huge gain.
|40 weeks 20 hours ago||I tend to agree with you but||
I tend to agree with you but I'm not sure this play is damning evidence in that regard. The play was there for the taking were it not for a whiffed block (bad angle by Kerridge) and an unforunate tangling of the feet due to Fitz's adjustment.

So well said. Feet need to be held to the fire. I don't think an internet blogger is going to influence much in a presser, but at least make him answer for the complete failure he has created.
|44 weeks 20 min ago||We have (statistically||
We have (statistically anyhow) a good run defense, right? So, when we execute these plays in practice, are they seeing better results than in the game?
I would think not. Wouldn't the same issues come up over and over? Is our O-Line just great in practice and then they fall apart in the game? Or maybe Greg doesn't simulate 8-10 in the box like we continually see in the game?
Do they not watch film together and say, "shit Al we're running into a sea of dudes can we try spreading things out a bit?"
Wouldn't Greg speak up? Surely he can watch that game and tell Al what's going on. I just don't get it.
I get that nothing will work or look good on tape if your offensive line can't execute, but are we just the most unlucky team in the country when it comes to O-Line personnel? Despite the fact that we should have at least an average O-Line unit in terms of experience and star ranking they, in reality, are terrible?
It's coaching right? The fuck is going on?

What is so special about Notre Dame that so many great recruits from all over the country want to commit there, then commit somewhere else?
Questions are rarely so full of win. Hilarious...

Running backs. Is Fitz back to 2011 form? Out of Hayes/Green/Smith who sees the most production at this point?

I'm in the market for UCONN tickets. Are they hard to come by? I'd rather not mess with season tickets. Wasn't sure what the general situation was regarding getting tickets and pricing. I had looked a bit but didn't find much besides typical stubhub, etc.

I left this game early and missed the "Braylonfest" that occurred. I missed it again as I'm just seeing this post. Maybe it's better that way...
