Manny gonna bring Bubba from the bench blitz.I saw the condensed game of Pitt v Clemson on YouTube, and our biggest weakness by far will be our mid-level defense vs. Kenny Pickett. He's improved significantly vs. last year in picking up the blitzing or stunting LB, and finding the crossing route 3-10 yards over the LOS in the middle of the field.
The only way we combat that is less blitzing, which isn't something Manny seems capable of. And when we do blitz, we need to disguise them better and come at him from the outside in, relying on our DTs to bring pressure in the middle. If we pull our normal Manny defense shyt, with the LBs coming hard from inside Pickett's blinders, we're going to get torched.
Pickett still floats his pass to the sidelines. So we may have some opportunity to disrupt him on the outside. But at least vs. Clemson, he was rocketing those balls in the center and downfield, again, mostly off of reads, so our job has to be play sound fundamentals. I don't think we'll have enough time to get to him too often unless our DBs cover well. So this will be the biggest game of the season for our young backfield. They will be challenged often, along with Flagg and whatever other LBs we have covering the middle.
Manny gonna bring Bubba from the bench blitz.
For sure. There is no Lawrence type talents. But the kids up for the #1 pick usually don’t suck.
That being said, I smell a Rique pick tomorrow.
