If you don't think the QB is part of the reason for the horrible offense, then I don't know what you've been watching.

There's no other good alternatives at QB because this staff does not develop QB talent very well. This has been occurring for the last 5 years.
Truer words have never been spoken.

In the hallowed halls of the LSU football department, learning has not occurred. For instance, remember when RP was the be-all/end-all QB who would surely take LSU to the promised land? Remember what we had when he was kicked off the team? Remember poor JL's freshman year, thrown to the lions? Remember then when JJ took over and things got a little better, then got worse and stayed that way at the QB position for season after season? Then in his senior year, remember when JL was returned as starter and for the first 7 games, the LSU offense seemed to be revived? Then, remember what happened when *CLM's fondest dream was restored and JJ again became the starter? Offensive game began to suffer... Then remember the 1/9 JJ debacle show?

And then came the Mettsiah, the starter who was going to lead LSU to the promised land. But with Rivers and Bolden on the bench, getting no game-time reps - all rests on Mett's ability to lead the team - only he's not doing much leading. Is that because of him? Do we blame the suspect OL or butterfingered WRs? Injuries, in spite of all that hyped depth at LSU? Or is it because of *CLM's lack of creative offensive imagination and/or lack of ability to utilize the available talent he's recruited and got on the team? Is somebody stuck on stubborn or stupid?

I just think the status quo stinks at QB and somebody or something needs to light a fire under this current HC of LSU and get him to begin taking steps to develop ALL the QB talent LSU currently has. Before the whole season goes down the drain it's currently heading for.

And that's a memo.

Key word there is PART. There are lots of moving parts on an offense. Each is dependent on the other. I have seen an equal number of breakdowns on each of the "parts" of the offense. The point he was making was in reference to the OP calling for Mett to be benched.

The point is, benched for who? Who is going to come in and magically because he is there everything is just going to start working. That is simply moronic to think that by plugging in Rivers or Bolden, the offense as a whole is suddenly going to get better.

If the receivers were running around open every play and if the o-line was sitting on their assignment every play so Mett was never under any preasure until after his 3-step or 5-step drop, and we still had no offense to show for it. Then I would agree Mett is the problem.

I have seen nothing that indicates Mett is the sole issue on O. Frankly, what I have seen is that Mett appears to be the only person on the offense who clearly is getting better week to week.

WRs- drops have remained a constant and I don't see their routes getting any cleaner.

OL- Injuries, youth, poor protection from the edge.

Those issues have been constant since week 1.

Mett forcing throws? Against Florida this past weekend, he got out of the pocket and threw the ball away.

Mett fumbling while trying to scamble and do too much? I saw Mett tucking the ball, in the Florida game, the second he felt preasure on him.

re: I have read a variety of idiotic opinions on this site


But instead of some people seeing the development and progression as an indivual player on the O, you throw the QB under the bus for being in a system that doesn't rely on his position and doesn't WANT to rely on his position. LSU's offensive system is not a spread, its not he air raid, its nothing more than goal line sets down the length of the field. And yet I still see plenty of variety in play calling for the offense to be successfull IF all the parts execute at the same time.

Just to clarify, I said variety of play calling... I did NOT say the play calling was always un-preditable.

Yes. It WAS Mett who ran down the field after completing a 57 yard pass to Beckham and knocked it out of his hands, causing Florida to recover.

It WAS Mett who should have ran after his passes and, as the receivers drop them, Mett re-catches them for them and places them in the receivers' respective chests.

It WAS Mett who was supposed to jump 6 feet in the air above the defensive linemen rushing through the injury-ravaged LSU O-line....
