We have a 5th year QB and we need to "simplify" things? If we need to simplify things, then we might as well play only the freshmen QBs. The whole point of Etling is that while he might be inferior athletically, he knows the offense and has veteran poise. Since that's obviously not the case, play the youngsters and get them experience for next year.

We need to simplify things for the o-line, not the quarterback. Can you read or did you get your high school diploma from a Baton Rouge high school?

Only problem is, it's not an Etling thing. It's an O-line and WRs issue. This is part of the reason why we haven't played more receivers. And you've obviously never played sports. You don't just "play the youngsters and get them experience for next year." Especially not when you still have 3/4 of a season left to play. When you're competing, you play the best person available and you play to win every game. This isn't some XBOX game where you just put people out there to get their overall rating better.

It's just about beating the man in front of u. Less shifting pulling etc. dan Mullen does that. Wants each man on an island. I think we need that as well. Imo that improves the protection immediately

simplify....jet sweep, shift line to left to run right, shift line to right to run left, fake jake sweep to run dive and play action pass.....

We have a major problem with coaching. It doesn't get much simpler than that.

I can see the rational in that, with imprlementing a new offense and all, but it shouldn't take to game 4 to realize that you need to simplify things.

I have zero confidence in this taff right now. They seem lost as we are as fans but the difference being we were bamboozled by some con men acting like geniuses. The Long Con LSU style.

The fact we are still discussing this topic speaks volumes about this inept coaching staff. Mediocre staff is mediocre

I don't care what you do, just make it work.

We haven't been great but, I don't find this offense as frustrating as what we were running under Les. At least we convert 3rd downs at a decent rate and the stars don't have to align just right to complete a forward pass.

Could be bc it's only been 4 games. Imagine us still having this offense in 10 years.

Maybe, they can try the veer. Blocking scheme is as follows: 1) Block player on you. 2) Block player over you. 3) Block nearest player play side. 4) Block nearest player back side. Can't get much simpler than that, but at least someone may get blocked...

The problem is that the left side of the line hasn't proven they can do the first one yet.

how can it get any more simple? it looks like a wing t high school offense is this just another way of saying that offensive line play needs to step up
Reply49 months
Actually the wing t is very complex

really? I never found the wing t to be complicated at all. unless my high school coach just ran a terrible version of it (this wouldnt be that surprising) and im saying that as an offensive lineman.

Can't they just look in the binder?

If I didn't know any better I'd swear some of our fans would be happier being right and LSU sucking rather than being wrong and LSU being successful.

Its called catastrophe syndrome. Nick Saban diagnosed LSU with it in 1999 and its been in remission until a flare up in 2012. It is now stage 4 and malignant due to drama queen fans.

Can't wait to see more dive plays. Les Miles will be proud.

You're wrong. It's motion the tight end and slot receiver to the weak side, then motion your wide to the same side, then run to the unprotected side.....

SIMPLIFY!?!?!? we already know what play is coming before you run it! for heavens sake… add something to it!!! I thought this was supposed to be a spread em out, mis-direction, lots of motion, hard to identify system??? we've seen the same FOUR plays over and over and over and over again.

This may have been something better left unsaid Coach O. At least not publicly for the love of god!!! If we've already decided to simplify the offense that's been on display the first 3 games this team will be lucky to have a winning record at the end of this season. The only thing complex about this offense seems to be getting the plays called in time and our RB's trying to avoid whichever offensive lineman that's been steamrolled into the backfield on every GD snap!!!!!

Spring through Fall all we heard was the offense was ahead of schedule, how fast the players learned the offense, and how that was the fastest he has ever installed his offense with a new team. On game day all we see is WR pre-snap motion with heavy running from under the center in a 1-back formation on 1st and 2nd down.
