re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
[quote]Seems you are the one that brought the idea, the excuse if you will, that the OL was the reason the offense underperformed. [/quote] Not even remotely the case. When the offense was struggling during the game I kept reading in thread after thread that the offense was struggling vs Tech becau...

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
I will say before I goto bed that I hope you're right and that I am overreacting. As I just said in another thread, I think this is a very good football team and I expect them to play to that standard and not come out flat against these kinds of opponents. It's happening too much IMO and I feel like...

re: I agree our offense stinks MOST OF THE TIME. - TigerLunatik
I've been very tough on them tonight because I think this is a very good football team and I expect them to play against that standard every week and not concern themselves about the opponent as much....

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
They turned it on those last 2 drives and were aided by a questionable catch on the sideline. It was bad after the 1st quarter up til those last 2 drives. It shouldn't have been that close. Am I being over dramatic? Maybe. This playing down concerns me. Maybe I have PTSD from last year and fear it h...

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
As I've said, I think they played outstanding last week and I do think this is a good team. I'm disappointed about playing down to a lesser opponent again and it concerns me because I don't think they are going to win these games every time with that kind of effort....

re: I agree our offense stinks MOST OF THE TIME. - TigerLunatik
I don't think the offense stinks. I think the offensive gamelan and coaching stunk tonight and LSU played down to their competition again. This is a good team and I expect them to play well next week. But, they won't be able to pull these kinds of games out every time playing the way they played ton...

[quote]WE were actually down 4 starters that were slated to start  Ingram, Charles, Magee & Brumfield  Being 4-0 is straight up a testament to the depth there [/quote] I agree, Lester. It still doesn't negate the fact that it was only one player different from what we had in that 2nd half vs ...

And they have been playing exceptionally well. That's why I am so frustrated with the effort tonight. I know they can play much better than that. ...

re: Tonight was a pathetic effort from Tiger Stadium - TigerLunatik
[quote]Blame the offense.  Running 48 times, 75% of the time into a box of 8 will kill any sort of crowd that’s there to be excited and cheer. Not much to cheer about.[/quote] Great point, man. I'm all about being happy with 4-0, but this coaching in these "cupcake games" has been atrocious IMO ...

re: Tech is legit. - TigerLunatik
[quote]Okay, so I should just forget about Miami and Auburn too then[/quote] No. You should absolutely remember how fricking great these guys played against those schools and then contrast that to how LSU has played vs lesser opponents during the Orgeron tenure and realize that it's horrible coachin...

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
Here is my question from the OP. [quote]So how is that a reason tonight for the offensive struggles?[/quote] My whole point this whole thread has been than we played great last week with the same line as we played with tonight except we had Traore in for Charles against a MUCH worse overall defens...

re: Relax !! - TigerLunatik
You're saying that we are playing not to get injured and that's causing G5 schools to be able to move the ball against us and it's why we are having trouble moving the ball against them? I think I've heard every excuse in the book now....

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
If anything, Deculus would have been exposed last week with Charles playing because they would go after Deculus. It's still doesn't explain the why the entire offense played the way they did tonight after seeing how they played last week. ...

[quote]when we where playing backups primarily[/quote] My question is why weren't we discussing poor performances by the offense due to having to play Lewis all season and Hines for the entire second half last game? To be clear, I'm not trying to bash the offensive line. I'm simply saying that t...

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
Hold on. Is it the losing "3 of 5 lineman" or is it the leadership of one player not being there that caused the ENTIRE offense to struggle that much vs a G5 school in the final 3 qtrs?...

re: O-line excuse - TigerLunatik
[quote] Everytime 3 of our 5 starting linemen are out[/quote] Then explain to me please how not having 2 of them didn't phase us at all against one of the best defensive fronts in the country? And why did that cause to not be able to catch the ball? Or throw a screen pass?...
