As always great podcast, appreciate my question making it on as you had alot of good ones to choose from. Agreed that on defense limiting the explosives is probably the #1 thing. That was their biggest talking point in offseason from their coaches and players, they were expecting to be much more explosive. In the 2 games this season that has shown to be true, against Sam Houston they didnt really sustain drives and hit on multiple explosive big plays.
App took that away from them and their QB isnt efficient enough to have sustained drives, even in Sam Houston game he put alot of balls in play where the defense can get some gifts. But his mechanics arent on point, if you can take away his first read, he gets antsy and tends to spray the ball, especially if you can get him off his spot. I wouldnt be surprised if they go to the backup quickly
Redding III is my new favorite player on offense. He is putting in the work. He knows the playbook and helps his teammates learn it.
He is doing everything he needs to, not only to get playing time... ...but also to be the difference in a game like this.
Hope he shows up and plays well.
This will be Gattis’s judgement day. I understand we don’t have the horses. All the more reason to scheme up the guys we do have & put them in a position to succeed. I understand it might be our identity & thats fine but I need to see more creativity Saturday.
