    Best pair of wrs in college football. They make Metts job a lot easier and make him look good at times...

    We already have a chance..but you take away both of them then we win..no doubt

    their offenses is night and day from last year, he's the most dangerous passer in to CFB and likes to go downfield. Not to mention J Hill is back there to mix it up

    A QB like that you'd like to pressure the pocket from the middle....to force him to the ends. Otherwise he'll just step up in the pocket

    What I like about this years team, even though we don't get the push Floyd and Hunter provided last year, when we dial up a blitz we seem to get there

    If we bring a blitz and don't "get home" our safeties are in trouble

    Look at it objectively. Does this look mobile to you??

    Mettenberger is not a scrambler at 6-5, but he does roll out and bootleg pretty well. Last year he took too many sacks because he held onto the ball too long. This year, his pocket awareness is much better. He's getting the ball off faster and his line is giving him time to go to his second and third options when needed.

    He will take a couple of sacks, but he is throwing the ball away this season instead of trying to force it into coverage when his pocket breaks down. And he's hitting his receivers in the hands instead of the ankles.

    Mettenberger will lead his receivers every time. He's also not good at pulling the Drew Brees eye fake down the field. Where he looks, he throws
