    I thought Tomlin played quite well. There were definitely some focus issues and mental mistakes out there.

Big difference.

    If we're gonna continue to operate our offensive package out of the shotgun or pistol formations we better start recruiting quarterbacks that will complete passes when they throw the ball and we better start recruiting tight ends that will catch the ball after they beat the linebackers or safeties that are supposed to cover 'em. I haven't seen that we have either so far this season.
    I agree.

    O line blocking doesn’t look great.

    I think Tomlin and Werts both throw very well for the kinds of passes we normally use. But we gotta work on the catching end of that equation.

    O line blocking would look a whole lot better if the linebackers and safeties weren't up playing the run. And when throwing to an open man our quarterbacks have to be able to get rid of the ball on time and put the ball where the receiver can catch it on the run instead of having to adjust to the inaccurate ball and fall as a result, or not even have a chance to catch it.

    Explain please. I just don't see it.

    Sloppy, yes. OL missing assignments, yes. Bad snaps, yes. Too many fumbles, yes. Several other things, yes. But I don't see a bad attitude.

    Things are a mess on so many levels. What the hell happened??

    A couple weeks ago, we were talking about skull dragging Minn. Now we are wondering if we can squeak with 3 or 4 wins.

    I have no idea what has changed, but some stuff most definitely has. This is more than just missing a couple players.
    Very few people said anything about skull dragging Minn., and those that were are crazy. You might be the only one wondering about 3 or 4 wins.

    This game was absolutely the sloppiest GS game I have ever personally witnessed. We fumbled on offense, defense, pretty damned sure the cheerleaders fumbled for us. (This was way worse than our last Sav State game in terms of ball control.

    Tomlin was good. Playcalling was crap. Snaps were crap. Ball control was crap.

    This is a LOT worse than some early season jitters. We sweated out a freaking FCS team! A team which could not touch anyone else in our conference.

    Our staff better figure some stuff out. Real quick. This will be an awful season if we bring the same stuff from our first two games anywhere else.

    Yes. I'm hitting the panic switch. What I saw tonight was God-awful on most levels. Especially playcalling. How many times do we get inside the 5 to run the exact same play? I mean the exact same dive to the same guy?? (Are we stuck in some kind of Stowers time machine??) YGTBSM.
    This just in.... the sky is falling!

    "Easy TD after Easy TD" and "turnover after turnover"?!?!?!?! You do realize they scored TD's on only two drives in the entire game, right? One at the beginning of the 4th qtr and one on their last drive. We also only gave them ONE turnover.

    Were we watching the same game?

    I rewatched the game and this was an issue. Debesse threw some early down passes to try to loosen them up, but we only connected on one of the deep shots (that I can remember). Once we got into the redzone, the pass threat lessened so the box got cramped and we were running into a 9 man box trying to block with 5-7 guys. We were moving the ball, slowly, and had the most success on the outside plays. But the 2 bad snaps really killed those efforts.

    Another thing I noticed is it looks as if some of the receivers and the cruisers were having difficulty committing to a defender to block, and ultimately blocked no one. That can be corrected, because blocking the wrong person is still better than blocking no one.
