Finally had a chance to watch the whole UNLV game and here are my thoughts:
Rodgers brothers are amazing and I still can’t believe that they are at OSU. Would like them to avoid the hit a bit more to keep them around for the whole season. I live in LA and all of my Trojan buddies keep commenting about how Taylor Mays is going to crush them like tin cans. STEP OUT OF BOUNDS PLEASE!!!!
Rodgers brother (Part two) are too much of the offense and the progress of the other receivers is good, but not great. Stevenson is a very good back up to Quiz, but he does not instill fear in the defense. I would like to see a few long balls to keep the short swing passes available.
Canfield is our man unless he gets hurt. He has not made mistakes and throws a great ball.
O-Line looks good. They will need to progress if we plan on winning a few weeks from now.
A Little nervous on this side of the ball.
Line/Backers are very good at tackling someone after they have made gains. Need to much more disciplined in their drops and that cost us on a few 3rd downs at least last week. If they don’t get pressure on the QB the offense will sit on the sidelines for the WHOLE season.
Dbacks are not getting torched, but they will against better competition. We have been tested by a “Spread” team and a 1AA team. The Pac-10 will run right past us.
Returns – been ok. Nothing to report either way. Need to cover kick offs better. Hurt in the UNLV game at the end.
Kicking – DON”T MISS AGAIN!!! – simple instructions. We will need the points. You redeemed yourself, but also put us in the situation.
