    Have you ever thrown a ball downfield with 3 defenders wrapped around you?

    Everyone agrees, but most realize that there's little chance of that happening unless we block better.

    Neighborhood rules: opponents have to count to three before they rush.

    Poor blocking and slow developing patterns prohibit that from happening this year.

    Our receivers have been getting open downfield, but we can't protect long enough. I don't think there has been a time where I've thought "wow, our QB has a lot of time"

    I understand that our QB haven't had time to get a good look down the field. Just chuck a few down there anyways. Beat putting Trey at qb for a play =a wasted down. Lol

    Lets try a flea flicker, offensive line should give us just enough time for that play to develop nicely!

    o-line has to block long enough w/out holding
    QB has to make a good throw
    receiver has to run the right route
    receiver has to catch

    all of those things have to happen. if one doesn't, the play fails.

    This comment made me go back and watch some of the fantastic Peasing it Together videos (huge props to whoever is making those).

    Against Toledo I see some great protection, but more importantly a lot of quick passes and some rollouts. I know it was just Toledo, but what happened to that offense?

    Against Miami Driskel had decent protection in the first half (also a lack of pocket awareness, balanced out by sticking with it for a couple of great throws as he was getting pressured), and even a little play-action. Watching it again, for wanting to be a smashmouth running team, we do a lot of cutesy stuff in the running game that doesn't seem to work well. Also, we are not a second half team this year. The pass protection got worse in the second half. Also noticed that Miami linebackers were picking up the snap count and getting two or three running steps toward the line of scrimmage before the ball was snapped in the second half. I saw more bad decisions at quarterback (mostly just holding onto the ball too long, when did throwing it away when there was nothing available become a bad thing?) than bad protection by the line, although the line got worse as the game went along.
