    1) the return units or the coverage units? If we get a big return doesn't that mean the coverage was bad? Or great coverage and no return?

    2) So poor deep defense?

    3) So a defense that gives up redzone touchdowns?


    Sorry but sort of serious...


    I do agree that the offense needs to get more vertical, and/or a helluva lot better at horizontal. I won't believe it though until I see it in a real game.


    Usually what you get out of spring games is some idea of individual talent and promising newcomers.   S. Shanle was a LB that popped out in a spring game years ago.    Casey Rogers is another guy that looked good in the spring game a couple of years ago.  On the flip side, Brian Knuckles is a guy that had a good game but disappeared after that. 


    It's really tough to see my points in a spring game as they usual call a basic game and mix personnel or stage it so it's nothing but a showcase but the question was what do I want to see.    


    I want to see the commitment to special teams and that means having them do real kickoffs, real punts & returns.  We probably won't because it's the spring game;  BUT that's what I WANT to see.  


    I want to see the offense take some shots.  We didn't hardly take any last year.  I want to see the arm strength&accuracy of the various QB's.   They don't have to complete all of them but I want to see at least some completed.  I want to see the line protect, I want to see WR's that can highpoint the ball.   Yah I want the defense to hold it's own.  You can still have good coverage and have the offense execute some plays.  We should have a good defense so if the offense can make some plays I will be encouraged. 


    Same with the run game.  I want to see the OL win some battles and the RB's hit some holes.  I am not worried about the defense but I want to see some grit from the offense in the run game.

    What is leading you to believe this?  Just curious.  I haven’t heard anything and I don’t think he’s played much. 


    I haven't heard his name mentioned at all so always wondered what's that about myself then awhile back I read on a different message board that it was his hands and I felt the post was legit.   I then saw him drop a pass in highlights which reinforces that belief.   


    In his highlights he looks like a guy that has gotten thicker so I thought maybe DB would be a better fit.   With our WR depth vs DB depth I think it would be a viable move for him.  I think he could find playing time at DB in the future.  I realize asking him to move might result in a transfer.   


    Not sure why someone would find my post funny?

    Thanks. I had not heard that about Diedrich. 


    To update the latest that I heard,  the radio people said it may be a month on Perry.  That's probably more likely than 2 weeks.   He's throwing on flat ground right now but not off the mound.   Needs to progress to the mound and then build up his arm. 

  4. I think they should move Demariyon Houston from WR to DB.   I think that's his best path to getting on the field.   He would provide more speed and quickness to the CB position and the CB room could use more depth and younger talent.  Could help next year.   I don't think he has reliable enough hands to be in the rotation at WR for this year or next.   


    Just my uneducated opinion.

    Way to get the sweep!!  Although NU is better than Penn State, it's still very hard to sweep a team in a series.


    NU will stay in first place!

    Also, on the road wins always counts a little more in the rpi,  not that the rpi means anything this year....

  6. First time I got to see him catch a pass.   He reminds me of Hart Lee Dykes from Ok St.     Hopefully he stays healthy; get reps and learns the offense.   Everything else is there.    We have a nice WR group this year so there should be no pressure on him.

    Is Diederich on the self with an injury? I was fairly impressed with him in relief at the beginning of the season but haven't seen him since. 

    Diederich quit the team.


    Kyle Perry may be an option in 2 weeks (short stints only)

    I am not sure why that question is so specific to a certain situation, but among the RB, WR, and TE positions Wandale was by far the leading player with yards from scrimmage.  I am sure those yards led to a lot of first downs for the offense.  But, if you want to focus on Wandale vs. the NU tight ends, Wandale had 51 receptions for 461 yards. This is more receptions and yards than the top 3 tight ends combined. 


    To add to your point,   the slot and z position WR often run route combinations with the TE.  They usually do not have a leading YPG figure because of this.  They average higher number of catches per game though.    The X WR is the guy that runs deeper routes and most of the time will lead your team in YPG.

    If you were really interested, you could have done the same Google search in the same :05. 


    Sorry if I seem suspicious. But if you and your brother have no intention of doing anything with the feedback anyway, I might suspect that your first visit to P&R was simply to drop a piece of anecdotal evidence to cast doubt on mail-in ballots.  That's kinda the lay of the land right now. 

    Wow just wow.   I went to the Georgia election site and various other places with Brave as my Browser.    Did all kind of searches but obviously didn't use the same search words as you.    Don't bother responding to this post as I will take a long long vacation from this board and won't go in this forum anymore.

    It's probably a good idea to let the commission know.  Like you said, someone maybe made an honest mistake and wondering where their ballot application  is.


    But as far as this pertaining to "fraud", it was an application.  They are worthless unless someone fills it out and requests a ballot.  At that point, your person is the bad guy.

     That's a good point.

    I found this in a :05  Google search, if you're really interested. 





     If I'm really interested?  


    Thanks for the links I will pass them along to my brother although he won't do anything with them as they are elderly and hate computers.   I appreciate all the feedback except for the snide comment.

    On Facebook this is called "misinformation."


    It could be this person or whoever entered the information had a typo in the address and it was an honest mistake,  however I am paranoid and I have urged him to report the issue because all he did was toss it in the trash bin.  I told him to go dig it out and report it so at least the voter roles get cleaned up.  If it's an honest mistake then reporting this is a benefit to the person on the card.   


    I did a little more research and I think Georgia doesn't use Voter ID validation for absentee ballots which concerns me.  I found a couple of articles detailing how some folks vote more than once.    I have no idea what the actual situation is here but as I said I am paranoid and urged him to call the Georgia election office.  

  13. I don't think I have ever posted in the political forum but feel compelled to do so.   My brother lives in Alabama.  He has been at the same address for 5 years now.   Before that he lived in Nebraska.   He just received an application from the state of Georgia for a mail in ballot.    The address specified on the card is correct.   The person listed on the card has never lived at that address.  Should he report that to the Alabama election commission or Georgia?    The whole thing is really weird.   I am thinking maybe the person lied on their driver registration because of tickets?

    He looks pretty impressive using that left hand at the rim and can also shoot threes. He has a nice smooth stroke reminiscent of Kevin Durant and plays at the rim like Kevin McHale.


    i like the McHale comparison.       Have no idea about Durant comparison as I haven't followed the NBA in 20 years.  


    Really like how he crashes the boards.

  15. I thought Graham and Payne would be better fits as DE's in a 4-3 and as such I always figured they were targeted for specialty roles to provide immediate help in pass rushing.  That must not be working out so now their roles are flipped but I still see them fitting specialty roles in their new positions too and they will have things to work on.   Hope they can work it out.  It's going to be a challenge.

  16. I think his heart just isn't into it.   I am sure he will have better games but I don't think he's loving the game.   He's doing it for a possible paycheck in future years but that motivation isn't necessarily the best or strongest.    Often when your unhappy your crabby or complain and I think we saw that here.   Sometimes a change of scenario helps and he may be alright for awhile (a year)  but long term is just won't be worth it for him.    Just a guess.

    Also don't forget, Austin was moved into Run Game Coordinator.  So, you have your O line coach playing a major roll in run game design and game planning.


    That could go along ways towards helping the O line.


    Wow, I did forget about that!   Great point.
