    Will we stop making mental errors this year?

    For me, the biggest disappointment since CPJ has been here is the number of mental mistakes his team makes. Movement at the LOS, a player taking a swing and costing us the ball, leaving a key defensive pass rusher unchallenged on a critical procession play etc. are examples.

    Getting and keeping the football is the key to winning close games. When you have the ball you just canít give it up because your team is not disciplined.

    If CPJ gets this fixed, he will win a lot more games.

    With our "style" of play or our system, when we have the ball we control everything. You are exactly right, we cannot relinquish the ball thru mental mistakes. The triple option has more risk involved for fumbling or losing a pitch than other systems, so it is imperative that we don't give the opponent the gift of a procedure penalty or some other foul that puts us in disadvantageous down and distance combinations. We are not a good offense for third and long.

    Well we all know the excuse to our offense......we are big play offense and take risks so sometimes the ball is on the ground etc etc etc. It is clear that teams load up the LOS first two downs and hope to have a poor gain on our part ....then they point at qb and come at him.If you are going to be sucessful in my humble opinion you need third and three most of the time since we are not that good putting rock in the air ! If you run the flex you will fumble no doubt about it and third and six aint cool.

    You are probably not aware, because it has not been announced yet, but I have canceled all fumbles for us this year. Put that out of your mind.

    I always get mocked for pointing this out 'elsewhere' but it's true.

    The system itself is risky due to its nature - that, I understand. What is nonsensical is our ability to go backwards via penalties before the ball is even snapped. That kind of crap is 100% coaching. How we do at correcting that kind of crap ought to be a bellwether of sorts to even the Johnson fans. TBD.

    The Big Plays have all but disappeared though, unless we're playing an inferior opponent or the CB slips on coverage, like the Ole Miss guy did in the last mediocre bowl we played and lost.

    The big plays have all but disappeared because the big PLAYMAKERS are gone. Dwyer, Nesbitt, Allen, Orwin, Demaryius, Uno, all gone and not yet adequately replaced. Maybe we have a few on campus now and in the pipeline. I honestly don't know, but I am hopeful. We know we have speed on both sides of the ball. Can we use that to create some big plays on offense---remains to be seen.

    I think Godhigh would fall into that category. Best AB we've had. I think Dennis Andrews has the potential to run the ball and catch it. He had several offers from pretty good programs to play WR.
