I understand Borges wants Denard to be a better passer and I agree completely with that idea. Denard as a QB needs to have a good arm and be accurate. However I feel as if Borges is trying to do this way too late in Denard's career at Michigan. He's not the most accurate QB and he's not a pocket passer we all know that but what he has is something that a lot of QBs in college football don't have. Amazing speed! He can FLY! He needs to harness that talent tomorrow and with Fitz back in the game kick the tires and light the fires! I was so confused why he didn't make more than a few running attempts in the Bama game. It's his senior year, it's an OOC game, I say let the kid run! Would love to see him fly through that AF DL. We tire out their defense that way and that's when he goes to the air and blows them away. We need a strong offensive start with an opening TD drive down the field! Should we choose to defend a quick 3 and out. Does anybody else feel the same about him going to the ground game tomorrow?
[ED:BISB - Okay, this thread did it. I am unilaterally implementing a new rule. Well, I guess the rule isn't NEW so much as it just hasn't been enforced. Either way, it's a thing now, and it's called the Snowflake Rule. The Snowflake Rule is simple: threads that just repeat the same stuff everyone else is thinking are not thread-worthy. Here are some ways to know if you are in violation of the Snowflake Rule:
- Your thread title begins with the words "My thoughts on," "My opinion regarding," or "What I think about"
- You cover a topic that has been covered multiple times on the board or on the front page
- The evidence supporting your post's hypothesis is entirely (a) opinion and/or (b) empty, high-level, tautological statements like "Denard is fast"
- Your conclusion is something either obvious or completely opinion-based, like "we will be better if the blockers block people" or "Kalis should play because I think he'd be better." Or, as a totally hypothetical example, "Denard should run because Denard is fast at running."
Bottom line: posting a unique take on things is perfectly acceptable. If you want to post about a proposed defensive alignment or scheme that will allow the line to get better penetration? Knock yourself out. Want to demonstrate why Denard should run more by providing an analysis of past running QBs or of Michigan's success based on various run/pass ratios? We'd like to read it. But posting your take on a common question will get your thread pulled like something from a Weezer song.]
