A 70% completion would be awesome but I'd be happy to see 65ish.

Just keep the turnovers low.  This would be my first concern.

you dont shoot for 75%. You shoot for 100% and then settle for 70.

Lee has one game in his career finishing with positive rush yards, to go along with zero rush tds. Not sure how threatened opposing d's will feel about qb runs.

I'd say, that's exactly where we want them. :)

You have to be realistic too....not even Tom Brady could shoot for a 100% accuracy rating

It will fool their defense, our offense, our coaches, everyone, even Lee. No one will see it coming.

Seriously though, he did have a touchdown pass in the spring game where he kept the defense off balance by rolling out and threatening to run it in. For now, I'll stick with blaming Tulane's ineptitude for his lack of production on the ground until we have evidence of what he can do here.

in no way is he a runner but that doesn't mean we can't run him on a read play near the goal line like they did with Gebbia in the spring game. Defense won't likely be expecting that from him for sure

Regarding "Riley talks offensive plans"...

 

It will be interesting to see what the plan is during the back seven.  And the weather starts to change.  That's when you really want to talk turkey.

 

Wisconsin

Ohio State

at Purdue

Northwestern

at Minnesota

at Penn State

Iowa

 

How many of those games/teams gives the Huskers problems since joining the B1G?  Better buckle up.

Hey, Steve Bono had a 76-yard touchdown run in the most hilariously overrun play fake of all-time.

Gebbia isn't anymore of a runner than Lee is and they called his number in the spring game and he had a beautiful sprint out for his first TD in front of our fans. Great to keep the D on their toes .

There were also no blitzes in the spring game against a pretty soft looking defense.  These guys are both very average QB's running wise at best.  Also with Gebbia's frame the thought if him running around against even a decent defense is frightening.

Good thing they won't be running it every play. That's the whole point. They aren't scramblers so a QB run in the right place can catch the D off guard. Lighten up man, just because the spring game defense was vanilla doesn't mean that play can't be used as an example to show where we may use the QB run game and how it can still be effective without a RB playing QB

I agree with you that it can be used effectively near the goal line, especially when the defense isn't ready for it. We saw that a couple times during the spring game, and defensive scheme aside, it's a good indication of how the coaches are willing to utilize every weapon available to them on offense. That said, when you have a gun in one hand and a sponge in the other, you can't throw the sponge and count on the element of surprise to compensate the damage.

Didn't we play a team in the past five years that had a non running QB have 2 carries that went for like 125 yards against us -  with either one or both being TD's.  If you don't think the pass can setup the QB run then go watch that game

Passing QBs have negative rush yards because they take sacks and don't usually get carries. It doesn't mean they can't threaten on the ground with a QB draw every now and then, or just take off in the open field. The stats won't look pretty but that's besides the point.

Just a joke. The only way I would watch that game again is if I was forced...
I'm on your side in this argument, but looking at Lee's history it's tough to see how much of a " threat" he can actually be as a runner, even with a solid passing attack to assist him.

Agreed.  Some of these responses are comical!  Of course Nebraska isn't going to try to run Lee or O'Brien or Gebbia or whatever QB they have back there most of the time!!!!  It will be very interesting to see how things play out this season for Lee presumably or who knows at some point O'Brien when the pocket breaks down and/or when opposing teams blitz Nebraska.  

 

As I've said before line play is still going to be critical especially now with Nebraska's pro style quarterbacks versus the dual threat QB that has been our calling card.  No more Tommy/Taylor Martinez like runs/scrambles or designed runs.  Even if Riley/Langsdorf somehow throw in some designed QB runs I see them going over as well as our jet sweeps if that.  

 

Personally I think you're going to see these QB's get rid of the ball quickly anyway taking away the need for this offense to rely on their feet as much as it has in the past.

yes, in general our 'jet' sweeps have been more like Cessna sweeps really.   This is a gadget play to me and maybe use it once every other game or something or in those rare suprise circumstances.  It is NOT a base or regular run game type of play in my view.  Likewise, that will be the case with our QB designed runs or even scramble or those 'run for your life' cases.   Our QBs are not speed burners by any means.

Gotcha - even thou some of my post may seem too creative / my mind isn't so i needed some help on the GIF.  Yeah with Lee the "surprise" element might be our only chance.

Agree with the quick pass until our line can show their ability to hold off pressure.  Would love to see the over / under of how many games gebbia would last with 3+ hits per game.  He may need 2/3 years however has some true potential - guess if he works as hard in the weight room as he does in the film room he may be ready for the field in 1 year.

I agree.  He just like Lee and O'Brien are going to need some protection obviously just like any other QB.  Interesting take on the 3 hits.  I wonder just how much a guy with a frame like his can beef up and how long will that take?  For the record I thought he looked really good on that touchdown run he had where he took it around the corner to the end zone.  He definitely isn't a statue back there so that's great.

Doesn't make any sense with the qbs we have. Langsdorf is younger and more healthy right now. Add in the fact that we looked good in the spring and lets see what Langs can do.

If Lee completes over 60% I'll be impressed. If he completes over 65% I'll never question Langsdorf again.

I think you will definitely be impressed then at least. I don't know about 65% but I think he should clear 60 pretty easily, just because he knows when to check down.

I do think his completion percentage will be good but considering Taylor Martinez had two seasons of 62%+ completion percentages, I think the bar could use to be raised a bit.

Maybe. He's a career 53.6% passer. 60% would not be an insignificant improvement.

I would be surprised if we didn't see a completion percentage between 65-70%. Don't care about Lee's career numbers.

How about we have a higher percentage in total and 60 percent completion against the better teams that we play. Turnovers are going to happen, so as long as we force more than we commit we should be good there. A plus 5 TO margin for the year would be huge, and I expect the INT's will happen, but with much more TD's thrown. 

This offense should be a lot better than last year. Less stalled drives and more consistent scoring with TD's to finish off drives not filed goals, especially against the top teams that we play. Offensively we will be just fine, it's the defense that will define what kind of season we have. I expect us to have a more consistent defense, and it will be great to see the corners within 5 yards of the receiver.

Hoping the % goes up, hoewever show me less turnovers and NU will be fine.

How about we have a higher percentage in total and 60 percent completion against the better teams that we play. Turnovers are going to happen, so as long as we force more than we commit we should be good there. A plus 5 TO margin for the year would be huge, and I expect the INT's will happen, but with much more TD's thrown. 

This offense should be a lot better than last year. Less stalled drives and more consistent scoring with TD's to finish off drives not filed goals, especially against the top teams that we play. Offensively we will be just fine, it's the defense that will define what kind of season we have. I expect us to have a more consistent defense, and it will be great to see the corners within 5 yards of the receiver.

 

I think the offense will see more drives settling for FG's this year. Drew Brown attempted only 14 FG's last year, so it's not like the offense was forced into a FG attempt 2 or 3 times a game.  The offense could do a better job of sustaining drives and getting first downs, but I can see it settling for FG's in the red zone.  The passing windows are tighter in a shorter field and the defense won't have to worry about the QB run game.
