| Tiger Rant|| re: Zach Mettenberger's potential - TigerStuckinOkieland on 3/13/13 at 5:07 pm|
I disagree - Mett DID play well enough in ALL games to win for LSU. Aside from a few over-thrown deep balls and a couple of stupid interceptions over the course of the year, he led the team well.
In the FLA game, some may have forgotten that Mett threw a beautiful deep ball to OBJ that was str...

Anyone who doesn't see the great ability that Mett has from his performance last year is an idiot! I had to ride home on a private jet after our loss to FLA this past year and listen to several friends bemoan Mett's lack of footwork and leadership - it made me sick - the lack of OLine support and l...

Take it from someone who's lived around these Okies for 15+ years -
1) They had mixed feelings about Miles just like LSU fans with respect to his personality
2) They respected the fact that Miles quickly turned OSU into a program that competed strongly in the Big 12, but mainly held back no punc...

If we lose one of those games AND lose to Bama or aTm it's kind of a moot point....we'd have 2 losses and on the low end of the top 10....which is very successful, but not in the championship discussion.

Coming from a big Les Miles supporter:

2) There is no arguing that Miles (and coaches) picked the absolute wrong moments to be conservative.
Yes, Miles and coaches had this team poised to ...

"LARGER CUSHION" is the key point - it's one thing to play a big cushion with a 7+ point lead with 1:45 left - quite another with a 3-point lead and a capable team to hit 10-15 yard receptions to good receivers from an accurate passer like AJ McCarron in soft coverage. A 1:45 clock in college footb...

Pretty good career so far, I'd say. Blast away, Pal.

LA has every bit as good of youth and HS level coaching as Texas and other large states - it has proven it many times over the past 10 years with the interstate competition between top schools.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Forced change in offense??? - TigerStuckinOkieland on 12/16/09 at 8:47 am|
I disagree with an earlier point in the thread, I think the team is more built for a pro-set right now. Big receivers, big backs, good tight end. Les likes to create match up problems with numbers on passing downs, which creates protection problems. IMO, our top 3 receivers this year were match up p...

Cannot believe Charles Scott didn't get an award for something - the guy got very little consistent blocking, fought for tough yards throughout the season, was crippled by an offensive scheme that did not favor success for running backs, and offered to play fullback to help the team. He's my MVP by...

Need to get your qualification of a "bust". You bring up Marcus Spears as another possible bust, yet the guy's played in the league now for almost 5 years, he's started almost every game at DE on a pretty good defensive front for the Cowboys - not a shabby team to be a part of, I might say.

IF we were all still here watching this game in OT, we'd be questioning "why in the hell Peyton calls the fake" - regardless of the end results of the game.
That is why the argument that "well, we won" doesn't cover up the coaching blunder....
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Here's why the fake was a good call - TigerStuckinOkieland on 12/13/09 at 4:23 pm|
Anytime the odds of two sequential circumstances are heavily stacked in your favor, you take the best odds - in this instance, you've admitted that the FG kicker is likely to make a chip shot from 30 yds out in a domed stadium - to be fair, probably more like 75% instead of 95% since the Oki...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Here's why the fake was a good call - TigerStuckinOkieland on 12/13/09 at 3:39 pm|
There is not excuse for the play sequence up to, and including, the fake FG.
Run the clock down to 2:00 and force ATL to expend both remaining timeouts - if your FG kicker cannot get it thru the uprights from the 20 yd. line, we've got bigger problems ahead. No way in hell you don't take a 6 pt....

It is a 3-ring circus between the following:
1) Inconsistent QB play
2) Inconsistent Oline play
3) Blocking schemes
When you add in the other ingredients of poor play-calling, clock management, and use of skill players, it is a recipe for disaster - that falls solely on the OC. We can eithe...

You would think that consistently poor pass-blocking would equate to an easier "sell" to the opposing defense, and subsequently "set up" the screen, hot route, or draw play. The fact that timing has appeared so helter-skelter in almost every facet of the offensive game this past year (play-calling,...
