Notes from OC Mike Denbrock's presser today

LINK

Cliffs as I go:
TEs and RBs are going to be a big part of what we do, and will make things much better if they are included in the passing game

On QB: First, we want someone who can run the system of offense we are putting in. It's an adjustable system. Who plays to strengths of our personnel, who commands it the best, and who takes ownership. Who upholds the LSU standard. Takes care of the football. We are a qb-driven system.

On o-line: it's in flux. We're still identifying the best 5. Some new guys we didn't have in spring need to be eval'd. We're only 5 practices in which isn't enough time yet.

Roles in offense are earned. Consistency and playing to the standard. No one there yet. Ongoing process.

On Brad Davis, it's probably not a whole lot of fun being an o-line coach when your coordinator used to coach o-line too. But they are challenging each other and working together. Brad doing a great job.

Bradford, Dellenger, E. Jones have a lot of good traits they are looking for. No one has been disappointing at all in the o-line room.

On RBs: Noah Cain high FB IQ, adapting to our scheme well, and our scheme fits him very well already. Very nice job so far after only 5 days.

Hopes QB comp makes it an easy decision in the end.

Having a mobile QB changes the options in the play, but won't affect the play calling itself.

A coach always has a set of core beliefs that are consistent throughout career complimented by new things you're always studying all the time. Doesn't care where it comes from, if it's going to benefit your team you're going to borrow it.

This is a qb-driven offense. Everyone has to learn to drive the offense. From protection to adjustments at LOS.

Back on QB: Whoever gives us the best chance to win will be QB. This is as complete an eval we can make. Who knows the offense, who protects the football, who can make the clutch plays, everything will be considered. It will be as comprehensive an eval as possible without any one big thing being the deciding factor.

Tried typing best I could as he talked, sorry for any mistakes or misses.

Do we have real coaches now? It feels like we have real coaches now.

Don't want to step on your post, OP - but I was excited that he said Noah Cain fits what they want to do on offense very well. With Bradford and Kiner gone, it's going to be key for Cain to step up.

Im optimistic Cain looks better this season after another year removed from his knee injury*.

This is such a coach speak, BS answer. If you remove the option, its a different play that is blocked different.

Listening to Scott Rabalais speak makes me want to take a header out a window

I really like Daniels particular skill set. The wild card of his legs are so hard for a defense to account for. But I feel like wide receiver is a position of strength this year and I'm not sold on his ability to make the throws that maximize the potential at WR.


Idk, I go back and forth on that. Our two best receivers are probably Boutte and Bech playing out of the slot. I think those are the shorter range throws he can make and you can pair up option stuff with those throws. But the downfield stuff with Jenkins/Thomas might not work.

If Mobility really is as important as Denbrock is conveying, it is a two man race. Jayden offers big play ability and Nuss offers it with his arm, it really just depends on what they are looking for. With the skill set of our WR room, I would side with Nuss, but I want the best to play period.

He's had all spring and summer to work on his mechanics and footwork. If he can make all the throws and reads, our offense will be scary.

Not really. He's been indirectly saying who he wants all offseason. In addition to passing the ball effectively... "I think" Denbrock wants a guy he can move outside the pocket, dial up occasional run-threat plays from the QB position, and someone that can extend plays when stuff breaks down. Daniels has the closest skill set to his former QB, Desmond Ridder. Thats why they brought him in (contrary to what people want to believe). Its invested interest.


I think Nuss can do the same but I wouldn't expect him to break off 15-20 yard designed runs... He definitely can scramble/extend plays though.

In this day and age, I think in order to win consistently you have to have someone who is a great passer, unless you you have a truly elite defense (Georgia last year). That's why I usually lean towards the guys who are less mobile but better at making reads/throws from the pocket.

He is a loser. When it comes this board Ya'll QB IQ is lower than Joe Bidens.

That's a loser offence in the SEC. Dembrock is going to find out.

Definitely sounds like the job is between Daniels and NUSS
