Why do people assume Miles wants to run it down people's throats?
Posted by NorthEnd on 1/10 at 5:15 pm
I see this posted all the time, that Miles only wants to run the ball and is ultraconservative, and Lee paralyzed his playcalling etc,etc----but have any of the people saying these things looked at the stats?

Take Clemson for example---we threw 23 passes in 48 total plays, and many, many more plays were designed passes that got blown up, sacked etc. If anything we should have run the ball more because that's the only thing that was working that night. I'm not happy at all with offensive production, but I think people need to be able to recognize the difference between ineffective, incapable and conservative.

well we ran Broussard and Vincent's fat asses for less than 1 ypc in the Auburn game in 2006 while JR was throwing all over them

I'mt not sure because I haven't been around long enough but I think I am starting to get a feel for how this goes.

We like to bitch when we run, because we should have thrown.
We like to bitch when we pass, because we should have run.

Can anyone tell me if I am doing this right?

Let me ask you a question on top of that question...


Why do you think the offensive playcalling has been largely the same the past 8 years despite having three different offensive coordinators in that span.

LSU is where 5 star QBs and great offensive coordinators come to wither on the vine.

Let's at least call it what it is. It's not a run happy team, they just SUCK at passing. They can't pass protect, the receivers are NEVER open, and Mett is, welllll, average??

In those 8yrs, Miles has 4 of the top 5 LSU scoring Os, ever.

What's lacking Iis execution and a sense of urgency. I expect for those matters to be cleaned up next season.

Northend got it mostly right.

Except I think Mett is above average but hasn't shown it because of those around him and our offense wasn't a good fit for him since he is as immoble a qb as has ever been made.

Can't throw on the run and can't move to save his life. Not good combination when you don't have a supporting class good enough allow for that. I just think with time to pass he can be very good... just need to give him that extra second and a half.

he's an idiot when it doesn't work, but no one ever talks about his play calling in the 13 games of 2011 that it did work. I know he should've made adjustments in the NC down 15 0, but against weaker opponents than Alabama defensively he should continue to run the ball until our OL can protect mettenberger long enough to get off a pass. Les Miles DID cost us the last two bowl games but WON us 23 games over the last 2 yrs.

Our defense carried us for 2011.

It's amazing that these people think "staying alive" is success.. Wow, cool, we kicked 3 field goals on offense in 35 minutes of being on the field. Defense won all of our real games in 2011.

Offense has been a joke since 2007. It's going to stay that way unless we hire a homerun OC. End of story. There is no other way to fix it.
