bingo. Boone's missed 1st down and ODB fumble were 2 critical points in that game.


I still think that if Kwon and Minter hadn't gone down back to back we would have won.

the best choice due to his knowledge of the assignments versus putting an inexperienced kid in.

I think the OL would have been better off with JD left at LT and given some time to work into it.
But I don't see practices, so I'll stfu now.

I think it's a different ball game without all the drops.
Completed passes, the safeties back out, the run opens, drives sustain, D rests, TDs, W, ....peaceful Rant.

I do believe the key offensive stat for Les has been TOP. This equates to his successes on defense as well


It is no coincidence that the two greatest Superbowl defenses--the 1985 Bears and 2000 Ravens--had solid running games. The combination of a solid defense, and a solid grind-it-out offense that burns game minutes and allows the defense to rest is he perfect storm for a guy like Chavis. This is not rocket science.

Up unitl the last 2 games of last season, this is what we did. In most of our games--especially at the end of the season--LSU rushed for more than 200/game yards in 2011. I think the only game that we ran for less than 100 yards is the only game we lost.

If we can run the ball effectively, we can beat anybody.

Holy shit, the receivers are BAD
Counted at LEAST 7 legitimate dropped passes. I think it's a different ball game without all the drops.


....exactly. that is what Miles is referring to when he says "executing the plan".

The weakest link right now is the WR crew. Seriously.

I expect to see much more Landry this Saturday.

That is the #1 thing killing the offense.
The play calling is bland but they are throwing in some wrinkles.

My issue with play calling is they get too cute sometimes and go away from things that actually do work ala HB passes, TE passes etc


Couldn't agree more with this statment TheDoc.
Yes, the OL left alot to be desired. But, the drops killed any chance whatsoever.
I'm really suprised that guys like Armand Williams and Paul Turner haven't at least been given a chance.
I will say this OBJ has struggled, but I think he must not drop many of those passes in practice. I believe the kid is just trying to do to much and because of this he loses concentration. We all saw the catches he made last year and at times this year. I don't think you can give up on this kids talent. Reminds me of the struggles both Bowe and Lafell had early in their career.
Hell, I remember J.Reed dropping his fair share when he first converted and we know how that turned out.
This team desperately needs 2 or 3 of these WR's to step up and help their QB.

I can't say it enough, we don't drop 2 or 3 of those easy catches which would allow the offense to extend some drives and we beat Fla.
Honestly, if OBJ doesn't fumble that long pass I think we find a way to win.
But, we didn't.
I really don't think their is a quick fix other than for some good things to start happening then some confidence starts.
This is the week for that to happen. Your at Tiger Stadium with the Home crowd ready to get crazy.

Being ahead in the takeaway department is what this offense is all about.Create turnovers,play on a short field,and pin your opponent deep.Although the D is creating turnovers sois our offense.This team lives and dies by field position,and we just are not getting it.

I think a better strategy on Saturday would have been, after we got a 6 point lead, simply take a knee every time we got the ball and run time off of the clock. When it gets to 4th down, punt. That way, you keep our defense off the field for at least a little while, and they stay rested and continue shutting down the opposition. Would have been better than what we actually did.

re: Time of Possession: LSU offensive strategy


so they run the ball until 3rd and short, hope to convert it by a short pass.. so that they can do it again.. that's LSU ToP philosophy right there.
