    and Brent Pease tweeted him back "Go study film..."

    This tweet interaction is so telling...here is my issue...WHILE WATCHING THIS GAME...I NEVER SAW A COACH DOWN ON THE BENCH WITH JEFF COACHING HIM UP...Jeff was always sitting by himself after every turnover! Chris Leak was around him with a headset on...but I saw no interaction. No coaching up JD. Then at the end of the game, Jeff wastes 20 or so seconds, and has to rush to get last play off which was a bust!

    Is Brent Pease our offensive answer????? "Go Study Film"??? That's so sophomoric of a response!!!!! I'm not sure his leadership of Jeff is one that has us winning too many games.

    The light apparently has not gone off with WM...I mean seriously, how have we improved since the SUGAR BOWL last year? This is the same crap we saw from our team against Louisville. We've had an entire summer to work and improve on offense.

    I'm frustrated..as we all are, I know but Damn...We just lost to a mediocre MIAMI!

    So on this Tweeter, on the Internets, youre only allowed to type 140 characters.

    Did you want a full blown coaching session via Twitter?

    I agree it's a little off putting that nobody appears to be coaching him during he game.

    Maybe they have taken things as far as they can go with him and have written him off?

    I'm not sure the entire team is behind him either. I think there was evidence of that a year ago with all the Brissett stuff.

    Chris Leak was right next to him chatting at every timeout and most of the time while the o was off the field.

    Also, wasn't that not really Brent Pease's Twitter?

    I don't understand how Archie Manning said Driskel was one of the most talented guys at the Manning camp and he consistently misses open receivers and has absolutely no pocket presence. Is this coaching, game planning or does Driskel not having the mental game down?

    Incorrect, unless you saw something I didn't. But I never saw Jeff being surrounded by coaches with clipboards helping him with reads, making better decisions etc... Didn't happen. But I only see what ESPN wants me to see...so I could be way off.

    True. But his lack of maturity is evident. This is his team and he is bored.

    If Leak is doing the qb coaching then we have trouble, he was a great qb but has no experience coaching them up.
