Here's something else I saw... Almost all of our routes in the middle of the field were completions and the opposite with routes on the sideline. Why don't we have more routes that start on the sideline but then go over the dang middle?? Wtf? More short post, in's, or at least fake an In route then go deep. It's too damn vanilla for a pro style. I swear I could come in and make this offense better just by giving them better route concepts. It's not that hard. Have some that develop quick some intermediate and some long. Always have an underneath throw available or two. Depends on what is going on but we need to change somethings and this offense would be efficient enough to win lots of ball games. Keep the drives going keep our D off the field and they will get better also. ST needs work too bdp gotta go. Stop being fancy and just kick the damn ball deep.

Most of the criticism goes to the coaches and offensive scheme. Harris would be totally different with a more complex system. Complex for other defenses. We need to create false attention routes, routes ran for attention getting purposes and slip someone out the backside and more motion to see who's doing what and to confuse. This system could be sooooo much better. Too late now though the offseason is over. OL needs to step up or maybe we need to go a different route with our OL and get more pass pro OL instead of the run blocking OL we've always recruited. They also need to get on the same page and give this guy some darn time. It's ridiculous that our coaches can't get this straight with a veteran group. I would sit MD if he has another game like that. Every pass to him was incomplete except for 1 maybe 2?? On the other hand every pass to dural was completed for good yards. Try chark in there. We need more than 2 WR on passing downs sorry Les that won't work and hasn't for a while now. Our team needs to man the frick up and stop blowing assignments. Block your frickn man. Stop missing blocks, RBs included. I better see more cohesive football played from here on out.

It's evident that he doesn't have faith in the O-Line. He looked so nervous in the pocket. Only a few drop backs where he looked cool in the pocket and made good quality throws. Other times he was quick to run out of pocket and use only arm strength to complete passes, and thus the over throws and under thrown balls. If our coaches can work with him and the line to have them working together we will see a massive improvement. That being said, if he struggles this week against J-State, then he has little hope to succeed this year and a change would be worth a try.

Screens looked good. The first three overthrows were honestly catch-able. That first interception was kind of a lucky drop into the defender's hands. A couple more catch-able drops. Honestly, it was an OVERALL...decent...performance. Until, that is, the decision which could have ended even Peyton Manning's career.

As bad as Harris was Malone was just as bad.

Short Routes/ Screens watch the LSU receivers abuse those DBs in open field. Cam doesn't notice this geez?!?!

21 attempts... Eleven were 2 man WRs routes and the other attempt had One WR in the field. ...ridiculous

Kids got talent, but it's the system. 2 wide sets are a killer. Imagine Harris in fisher's offense, he'd be lighting it up.

That O-line looked so porous.

If Dupre doesn't drop those passes BH6 would be 16-21 with a 76% completion rate and a possible win..Our o line needs to get better and give harris more time, if it wasnt for his scrambling capabilities it would have been even worse... Granted he does need more work but we need to help him by catching the ball when it is remotely close. Also get in 5 wide formations and give him more options out of the shotgun. Definitely would like to see the zone read option that we did the begginging of last year too

If he doesn't throw that pick at the end we could have won also.

One legitimate criticism from last year was the lack of short to intermediate throws in the passing game. A positive is that there were a few of them in the Wisc game and it appeared that the offense was starting to get in a better rhythm during the 2nd half.

Tom Brady couldnt help our passing game with the oline playing the way they did.

Looking at it objectively, it is not as bad AS I first thought. 3 incomplete passes on the first drive were bad, but understandable to come out jacked up and overthrow. Last pass was inexcusable. Couple good deep outs. Also couple passes where his receivers did him no favors. One INT was clearly on the WR.

The pass thar resulted in defensive PI would have been a 70 yard td

The last pass was definitely bad. Given that it was the 1st game against a quality opponent (in a semi-hostile environment), I think Harris is getting more criticism than deserved. Dupre also needs to play bigger to help out his QB.

Serious question about pass with 14:14 left in the 4th (2:44 in the video), is this an issue with timing and/or lack of anticipation. It seems to me this pass should have been released much sooner, but instead the receiver sits too long on the spot and gives time for the DB to close in to defend the pass.

The height on the throw didn't help either.

He has no touch on the ball. All the strength and scrambling ability though.
