Wow, D'No gets bailed out by UVA getting away from what put up a record offensive quarter. Sure Whipple isn't calling plays for them today?

Felipe

Woot McGee.

j.w.

Lucky than good, that is.

panamacitycane

Duke is pumped..he wants the ball again...I love it

orange 'n green in the vein

Same guy who used to take down Coop just got James.

j.w.

Turf monster prevents a TD. But still ok for James.

panamacitycane

Ok no cute stuff.. lets get a score here

j.w.

Better than a pick, but wish it were 7.

orange 'n green in the vein

As bad as that final three play calls where that close to the endzone, at least Morris kept the three from falling out his back pocket there.

Felipe

Yeah that makes sense Jedd. Always play down and blow a big chance to pull a td ahead. GAH.

Account Deleted

left points on the field there.....let's see if we can get another stop on D....

raizecane

Haha......James gets tripped up by the logo..

panamacitycane

Was that a block in the back??

j.w.

Should have been a block in the back vs. Pierre

panamacitycane

This is ridiculous

j.w.

56 is as bad as everyone else in coverage

panamacitycane

I lioe chickillo but he really isnt that good either

panamacitycane

Love*

j.w.

Paul needs to rush the passer and do nothing else

BEERicane

Chick is horrible. But I think this could be a product if playing every damn down. Kid needs a breather.

j.w.

My. God. Good coverage, no rush same f'ing result

Montreal-Cane

I love swiss cheese

orange 'n green in the vein

Historically bad, just totally historically bad.

Montreal-Cane

Paul needs to rush the passer and do nothing else

Yes sir.

Felipe

ugh, this Efense.

panamacitycane

Fire dno at half time..... im gonna go throw up now...I mean this is virginia...and a really bad virginia at that...there is no excuses anyone on this blog can use for this...it should not be this easy for them

Pbcfrcane13

I know OGV won't agree but we are not good enough to recover from having 3 starters out on D to make up for it!

orange 'n green in the vein

Jedd's going to have to exchange scores every time now for UM to win. That's Temple defensive coaching at it's finest.

No wonder he's going to take an NFL job at the end of the year, doesn't have to make Al's roomie look competent beyond his abilities anymore.

nemo2002

700 yards, nemo.

Posted by: j.w. | November 10, 2012 at 12:50 PM

70 points too!

GO CANES!
GO away NO'D!

BigWindyCane1

Please kick it to Duke

Pbcfrcane13

Think about it two starting lb and a safety.......we can't replace that for a full game

orange 'n green in the vein

You haven't watched the defense perform exactly like this even with the three underclassmen in the rotation Pbc? It doesn't matter who they play, D'No isn't competent however you want to excuse him.

panamacitycane

Ogv is right..were they better with those guys? A little but not much. Only one thing you can do to try to fix it..since the DC wont fix it..get someone who will....

orange 'n green in the vein

http://www.philsteele.com/fbsinfo/TeamPages/acc/miami.html

Look at the totals Pbc, they aren't that much different than today either and those guys where in the games when those totals where surrendered, it's the fact the DC has no clue how to field a championship caliber squad, Al doesn't either by the way.

j.w.

Good news is we might be able to score twice in a row with halftime coming

Account Deleted

Nice, VA is 4 td's on 5 possessions...the only stop was a poor decision pass play.

nearly 300 yds of offense and the half isn't over yet....

This isn't because of talent alone....


texican cane

Ogv ...correct

orange 'n green in the vein

Does Morris have depth perception problems with his vision? I'm seriously asking this, no snark, because that could explain the high throws, the behind the slant throws, the low throws on the curl routes.

j.w.

Do they dare going for it? We need the points

panamacitycane

Ok why does our offense stutter in 2nd and 3rd qt? We go way too conservative..we better be glad its the end of the half

HawaiiCane

What the hell is going on with clock management?!?!?!

canesteeler

SM freaks at the first sign of a blitz rather than standing tall in the pocket!

orange 'n green in the vein

Botts was running to the sideline with his helmet on as they went to commercial, wouldn't rule out a fake though here with two TO's left.

Should punt it even though that leaves the dunce roomie to get a stop with less than 30 seconds to go assuming the coverage unit doesn't blow it.

WWIN

Yall do realize that our 3 BEST defensive players are not playing today right????

HawaiiCane

Seriously, you have 3 timeouts & 4 minutes. Really?!?! Your offense scores on average in about two minutes and you don't mount some sort of drive?

canesteeler

PBC is there a difference if we had all of our starters on D?

pbcfrcane13

Look I'm with you in the sense I don't like rush 4 and play off but ill say this in the last couple games they have blitzed more and played more bump coverage with the full d and you can't say they hsvent. Now hes lost 3 starters and hes going back to he's old crap. Their must be a reason he does these thing whether we agree or not

canesteeler

Guys our defense has not been good the entire season. Quick making excuses.

j.w.

What an absolutely sh@%&y half. Thank God we have Duke, the team is unwatchable otherwise

BEERicane

The D can't possibly be worse than it is right now. Why not blitz 10 every play? Can't be any worse than this crap. The D has officially hit rock bottom.

canesteeler

I have been a canes fan since 1980 and I cannot recall a worst coached or performing defense than the 2012 version. Damn if the world ends December 21st this is the Canes defense we are going to end with :(

CaneRock

Duke Johnson 3rd player since 2000 w/ pass TD & KO return TD in same gm (Charles Pauley, '02 SJSU; Eric Page '10 Toledo).

pbcfrcane13

Why is it in sports its excuses but in real life its a reason.

pbcfrcane13

Look maybe other than the top 10 teams in the country you can take the top 3 players which they are off the d and play the same. Um d has played better ...UNC 18 pts fsu held to 10 till mid 4th. Vt held to 12. D has gotten better as players came back. Yes you can turn the stats any way you want to make your argument work. Fact they have gotten better with every body healthy.

pbcfrcane13

And yes been drinking since 10am

orange 'n green in the vein

Here comes the screen pass.

panamacitycane

Well if defense didnt adjust then we are f'd in the B

j.w.

I hope I'm over-reacting, but y do iget the feeling we just lost this game with that pathetic 3 and out?

orange 'n green in the vein

Pbc, look at the number of penalties UNC and FSU took, then look at the number of turnovers FSU and VT committed. Only one of those was a win, and it was against the, by far, worst team out of those supposedly 'good' defensive games.

Honestly, your argument will work better if you hit the, 'look what they did at Temple,' meme and let the rest of this half speak for itself.

raizecane

And yes been drinking since 10am

Posted by: pbcfrcane13 | November 10, 2012 at 01:54 PM

You beat me by 1/2 hour, lol

86Cane

Canes have to find a way to win.

That is all.

panamacitycane

Ok that looked good...dare I say some adjustments were made?

orange 'n green in the vein

It's a miracle! Gatorade showers for D'No!

Just make the cost come out of his paycheck.

j.w.

cut my Johnson off and call me stumpy! A real 3 and out for OUR Defense!

pbcfrcane13

Ogv one of these home games I would love to sit down buy you a beer and talk about this. I've seen the d get better as they get players back.and now that we don't 3 starters we go back to our old d don't see the problem?

orange 'n green in the vein

Did Mrs. Feliciano 'convince' Jedd to run the ball like the rest of the offense wants to this week? Man that woman is a saint.

orange 'n green in the vein

Pbc, there's only one left!

Notice the aggressive run blitz call on first set up three and out series where D'No even got away with his beloved 3rd and 15 rush three linemen call?

It's the play calling man. Always has been with this regime.

Dude on a Pale Horse

What the F are we doing on 3rd down?

panamacitycane

Wait??? A tight end?????

Dude on a Pale Horse

I'm working my Canespace shirt today.

86Cane

JUST WIN BABY!

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow, Jedd brought the grade A scheme today for the second half!

Why didn't Walford go tell Morris he told him so in practice after that play?

WWIN

OGV,

what more did you expect from the D against va tech when the offense was a non factor going 1 for 12 on 3rd down???????

Dude on a Pale Horse

Time for the defense to show up. Turnover time.

raizecane

we have a TE sighting.....

j.w.

Now, hold this lead, defense. Don't get conservative, don't get stupid, just make a few plays

86Cane

Ogv one of these home games I would love to sit down buy you a beer and talk about this.

No U don't. Trust me on this.

FALSE

If people only knew! LOL

panamacitycane

^^^^^ hahaha

orange 'n green in the vein

Willie, they got helped out by some special teams set ups and Logan Thomas generally playing like a converted TE taking snaps all night long, but they did a lot better than I thought they would because I figured they'd find a way to be the cure all for what was ailing the chokies.

Account Deleted

that play was some of the worst tackling I've ever seen...

WWIN

If you are still blaming D'no since the unc game, you are not keeping it real

Account Deleted

lets not forget Va Tech is 4-6....not like we beat a ranked team...and they still had 400 yds of offense...

j.w.

There it is. Pass rush, short pass, solid tackle. So that every play and we'll have something

orange 'n green in the vein

LB covering a WR.

D'NOOOOOOOO!

Dude on a Pale Horse

We play so far off the WRs on 3rd down. There were 3 open Cavaleers.

panamacitycane

Ok..so offense has to do this

Dude on a Pale Horse

Thank God, Virginia stopped themselves.

Account Deleted

dangerous territory here....not sure I'd have called a bubble screen pass to start

Dude on a Pale Horse

This can be the game winning drive.

Account Deleted

Va playing like a 3-6 team....too many penalties and mistakes...we need to take advantage of it now

orange 'n green in the vein

Legit PI, he's got him wrapped up as he makes the swipe on the ball.

panamacitycane

Four fingers up!

orange 'n green in the vein

Mark your calenders party people, D'No just held them to a zero point quarter out of halftime!

Gatorade shower for D'onofrio!

raizecane

Where's the tailgate next week???

j.w.

Go for it, damn it.

Account Deleted

Gotta give the O some credit..playing hard today

orange 'n green in the vein

That was the absolute correct call in that situation on the road.

One more TD should do it here today.

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow Steven. Just wow.
