And why were they getting blown up? ALTOGETHER EVERYONE!
...Because of bad execution.
The play calls were good. They run blitzed, we tried to counter with screens, execution sucked. Hard to open it up when you can't even run a damned screen pass properly in 5 tries....

Made us pay with his feet when the line/backers were out of position. We couldn't stop them for shite in the first half. He was a big reason why, whether he was on the run or making those underneath passes count....

He isn't a bad passer. Like I said a post or two ago, obvious miscommunications happen with inexperienced players. Aside from those one or two plays, the kid was a game manager that just happened to be able to tuck it and go.
ETA: I see that I over-sensationalized my point with the "every throw" ...

Thank you... This is what I mean. He managed the game well, made good decisions, and made us pay when our line or linebackers got caught out of position. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why does everyone assume that McEvoy sucked when discussing how we won? - DByrd2 on 9/1/14 at 10:24 pm|
Obvious miscommunications happen. Especially with young quarterbacks. I am just saying the kid did what he needed to. He wasn't missing screen passes or slants. ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Why does everyone assume that McEvoy sucked when discussing how we won? - DByrd2 on 9/1/14 at 10:20 pm|
He only threw a few times before the half, and they weren't bad throws. I can think of several in the second half that should have been caught but weren't.
I will gladly admit he shite the bed once the weight of his team was squarely on his shoulders alone late in the 4th. :lol: Until then he w...

Formation adjustments were more the issue. In the topic I just posted, I briefly addressed that fact. Scheme adjustments and formation adjustments are usually a halftime thing. Once we started spreading their d out, we had room to run. Should have been the plan all along....

Every pass the kid threw seemed to be highly accurate, up until we were within 3 points and he actually had pressure on him to win the game (last 3 drives they had the ball, he did wig out a bit).
Our DBs were a big factor in their lack of a pass game. Even the announcers were saying they weren't...
| Tiger Rant|| re: The reason we won is (pick one) - DByrd2 on 8/31/14 at 10:09 am|
Halftime adjustments should be everyone's answer here. Offensive and defensive adjustments, whether schematic or individual, turned this game around.
At the half, Miles said the team needed to just settle down and pkay like Tigers. The coaching staff made that happen, thus the outcome of this ga...
| Score Board|| re: Coach Chavis' Bear front adjustment... - DByrd2 on 8/31/14 at 7:21 am|
Kwon, Mills, and White were damn near the only names you heard once the defense picked up. Beckwith stepped in well and made plays, but those three completely took over the game.
I am thankful that we have backups like Dwayne Thomas. Also, that we have a true blitzer in our Nickel/Dime in Jamal A...
| Score Board|| Coach Chavis' Bear front adjustment... - DByrd2 on 8/31/14 at 7:08 am|
I hope we see more of this adjustment. Once we make that move, we have damn near unparalleled success. It enables the LBs to make plays, and when you have LBs the caliber of Kwon, you can take over games.
Makes it even more :pimp: that we have a secondary which is a damn vicegrip when it comes t...

Pro-Rated to 119 Games, each coach's number of wins would look like this based on their win percentages (over a 9 year span that averages 13 games, equivalent exactly to Coach Miles):
