    I don't think it's low risk passes. He's always passing in obvious passing downs and being forced into deep routes with little time.

    He hasn't been great but he's never had a chance to get s rhythm or any confidence.

     

    Don't equate a boring offense with low risk. Our offense is incredibly boring but it's not low risk.

     

    But because the run gets so heavily defended isn't he passing into single coverage most of the time? And don't the receivers run comparatively less complicated routes?

    Almost all of his passes are on obvious passing downs where everyone in the state knows we're not running.

    You have to look at the offensive line, too. This unit has four seniors and a senior TE. They can run-block against teams like Elon that have trouble stopping the run, but they've given up "26" sacks (ranked 109, worst in the CAA) to opponents 16. A lot of them there hasn't been enough time for the QB to go thru his progressions even if he wanted to. Brunson got sacked in his limited time too. Is it because they're the last of the NEC recruits? A lot of younger guys will be playing next year.

     

    Sussman has thrown only six INTs in eight games, half what the opponents threw, and one was a hail mary. Is that because he's taking sacks instead?

    All good questions.

     

    Also important to note is that he has a 43.3% completion rate 18 games into his college career, in a conservative offensive gameplan designed to minimize turnovers (very low risk passing.)

  3. I do have concerns that we are giving up so many yards and relying on turnovers to bail the D out. Effective when it works. but not so sure it can be a good formula with the meat of the CAA schedule coming up.

    Agreed. Sussman has to have 15-20 completions per game and hover around a completion % of 60-65% or else we'll get shut down. Our running game is good but you can't be that 1-dimensional and compete in the CAA week in and week out.

    Last night:

    Legit CAA stadium.

    Legit CAA crowd.

    Legit CAA team.

     

    Can we please have someone else running the ball late in the fourth quarter when the game is decided? Hanks had done enough by that point.

    Sorry DP, but if Casey stadium is legit CAA, I think I rather go back to UA field and the Northeast. The policies are very non-fan friendly, ticket prices are outrageous, and you cannot buy a concession without missing a quarter of the game. My name is ON the plaque dedicating the new stadium, but I am getting more and more discouraged about the place. (see also other the rant above).

     

    I do agree they should have pulled Hanks in the 4th. I yelled at coach about this and the lady next to me offered his phone #. I was sitting next to his wife.

    I wouldn't judge by 1 game. A lot of changes yesterday. I almost considered it the grand "reopening". I'm sure they'll make improvements next week
