His Majesty The Dude on High

Hey everybody....

Apparently CMR said he's not ready to name a starter at QB yet... 😐

His Majesty The Dude on High

solar,

AR needs to get himself back on the field if he wants the NFL next year. He hasnt been elite since Kaaya. Cant blame him too much though, Rosier couldnt get him the ball consistently enough. My guess is he'll suddenly be more healthy if Perry starts...

Dude,
I agree with you about AR responding positively to Perry starting.
It was effortless for Richards to run under Kaaya's long passes.
You could see his frustration coming back to the bench after Rosier threw a potential td or 1st down behind him.
Maybe number 5 will be the tonic AR needs to suck it up and play through stuff.
Remember how Canes like Shockey
seemed oblivious to pain and injuries and just took care of business?

Yes. I know its not the right thing to do, but Rosier has been costing Richards money.

His Majesty The Dude on High

I say we go as high as #15 this week, and if we really put it on UNC, as high a #10 the following week as a lot of teams in front of us have tough games again.

WWIN

I'll have to disagree... Rosier has great chemistry with AR82 and Langham. He was injured in fall camp before Rosier ever started.

AfriCane

Fock the polls! That’s what they get for rating teams like BC. Then they rate VT over us? A bunch of other teams that r sorry! Fock then all. I say we just keep winning and then we see where we r at year’s end.

According to the ESPN matchup predictor, the Canes are currently favored in every remaining game on their regular season schedule.

Perry made a great case for him to be the starter moving forward. It seems that CMR was preparing Perry for this transition if Rosier continues to struggle. Rosier started the FIU game sluggish. I don’t think he was playing well that first two series. Perry showed he is ready. Perry needs to minimize the freshman mistakes, but it’s obvious to even the casual Canes fan that his upside is much greater.

Rosier has done a lot in leading the Canes to their first ACC championship game and the Orange Bowl as well. But Perry has the potential to help the Canes return to those games and win those games.

If Perry gets JT and AR back, this offense can be as explosive as it gets

BigWindyCane

Homer looked like a RB who could play in the NFL. Homer ran harder and fought for every yard. He ran with a sense of urgency. I guess the competition of having Dallas and Lingard in the running back room really woke him up. CMR and Coach Brown have sent a message that Reps aren’t given on this team, they must be earned.

Even Camron Davis looked good. Choc also got a very nice 3rd down run. This is the deepest RB room the Canes have had in well over a decade.

TonyCane

I’m still wait and see. Too many cases of QBs doing outstanding in game one, only to fall back to earth as future opponent begin to have game film to study them.

BEERicane

I think we should hold out Richards and Johnson for UNC. I want them fully healthy for FSU so we can really beat the shit out of them. We should beat UNC easily without them.

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | September 22, 2018 at 11:12 PM

Agreed. I want to beat them by 42+. Just destroy them. Never hear their lame band that annoying war chant nonsense. I want to see tears pouring down the faces on the Noles sideline and from their fans in the stands. And I’ll just point and laugh at all of them. Then, I’ll go up to willie taggert and give him a handshake and a bro-hug to thank him for the memory.

I don't think this had anything to do with Rosier I think it was more so to do with Perry just being ready. CMR had already told Perry he would play the 3rd series before the game started. Malik didn't do anything wrong, but once Perry got in and was on fire you have to let him keep playing.

I applaud CMR for finally having the balls to do something like this... I personally didn't think he had it in him. Next step for him is talking to Malik and starting Perry this Thursday!

Go Canes!!

Some great highlights Perry from the game

Kid consistently delivers a catchable ball with good zip on it.

Think after the announced suspension @ LSU, CMR handled this this pretty perfectly. Kept Rosier focused and Perry hungry, then made the switch in a game Nosi had the best opportunity to play well and succeed

No way he doesn’t start at UNC imo.

Go Canes!!

Here are the highlights:

Had a blast at the game.But it was HOT. Entire offense looked more animated/excited once #5 went in there. Definitely could see it. Defense also because they got to rest LOL.

Feagles was better but FIU had a really good punter. Bubba Baxa did a good job also.

Bring on the Tar Holes (as the Duke fans say). Will be at the game!

His Majesty The Dude on High

The offense looked way more like an offense. Throws short, throws to the middle, throws over LBs... All Rosier ever did was chuck the ball deep and pray Cager or Thomas came down with it.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | September 23, 2018 at 10:45 AM

Perry consistently got the ball out quickly and hit his receivers in stride, giving them max opportunity to use their skills in the open field. And when he had to lay it in over the top, he did that too.

Small sample size, but loved what I saw. Have a feeling we’re going to see it a lot more going forward.

UMike

Once Perry was in the game it seemed our play calling changed as well. We threw accross the middle, ran a wheel route, screens etc. Seems the young guys were excited as well. Having Thomas back and adding the deep threat should open things up.

UMike

I don't want to to worry about the polls right now, we need to win. Just because VT lost and FSU has looked bad doesn't mean that are automatically wins. FSU started horrible last year and we needed a last minute drive to win. We can win, but won't be easy. Just win and the polls will take care of themselves

solarcane

Dude,
I think about 18 or 19.
Kentucky being a SEC darling will somehow wind up in front of us. I think the AP guys are gun shy to rank us very high, and with good reason given our history of laying a turd whenever they give us respect.

BigWindyCane1

Didn’t know the Canes have play making tight ends until PERRY got in the game. I didn’t realize Cager has run-after-the-catch ability until Perry put the ball in a position where he could catch and gets some YAC. I didn’t realize that HARLEY could contribute like he did yesterday. Harley had a career day.

Every playmaker had a better chance of utilizing their talent with Perry under Center. CMR deserves credit for making the move, and even more credit if Perry turns out to be the permanent answer at QB

Feagles was better but FIU had a really good punter. Bubba Baxa did a good job also.

I don't think we're watching the same game! Feagles was terrible! He hasn't hit a punt over 40 yards all season.

Canes are #16 in ESPN power rankings.

Feagles sucked, he sucks and will always continue to suck. He (appropriately) got booed by the fans yesterday. Which is hilarious

So I fixed it for you

Hell I booed him and had him as my ST LOF

BigWindyCane

Canes are #16 in ESPN power rankings, SB Nation, and Amway Coaches Poll. Tied at #15 in other polls

solarcane

Windy
you are right, every receiver
out there expects the ball to come to them now. That makes for good vibes.
Braxton B was the only guy Rosier seemed confident to throw to (at)under duress, and that was only because Brax was part acrobat.
Perry throws darts right on the numbers almost each pass from what I saw. Perry looked off defenders a couple times, that is already an improvement from his first couple outings.

💯

solarcane

UMike,
I'm with you, we just concentrate on this weeks opponent everything else will take care of itself.
Even the Tarheels come up with scary moments against us

BigWindyCane

Canes are now ranked #16 in both the Coaches and AP Polls

His Majesty The Dude on High

I told y'all #15 or #16. 😎

Next point about the O under Perry. The bubble screen should kind of be a bread and butter play for us because if executed correctly, it gives great athletes a chance to bust a big one with little risk. Since CMR & Dugs came to The U, WR blocking has become among the best in CF, and with Perry's sharp passing, the ball is there in a split second and the defense has to make a tackle on the like of Thomas, Harley, Pope or Richards (when healthy). Should the defense slide the safety over to help, BAM!!! we will have TEs toasting LBs and big plays over the top to speedy players, or 1 on 1 match ups to taller WRs like Cager, Hightower & Langham. Rosier cant even through the bubble screen people. Its never sharp, it tends to be behind the WR or in the dirt or too close (or even into) the sidelines. Rosier looks more comfortable at QB than Perry, but what does it matter if he cant complete over 50% of his passes? I'll take the QB that tosses 65%, 4 TDs and 1 INT, over the QB that throws 48% 1 TD and 0 INT any day.

His Majesty The Dude on High

*Correction* If the safety comes over to help with the bubble screens, it wont be over the top, but into the middle where there may be no safety.

thirstybuzzardcane

Geez Louise! VT has another player kicked off there team. Starting DE!

My MVP of yesterday's game was the OL. Best game I've seen them play! Donaldson is too big to play tackle.

solarcane

Geaux Tigers! LSU #5 this is very good

Go Canes!!

Everybody suck!!!

TruCane81

Flipping back and forth between Dolphins-Raiders and Saints-Flacons.

Never thought I would see so many wr handoffs.

Our offense ain’t pro style.

It’s just old style.

Time to come to the 21st century.

Thought we played at Sun Life, not Jurassic Park.

TruCane81

Dolphins just won with a wr sweep for 74 yards right before the two minute warning.

TruCane81

Well I think they won, but you know, it’s the Dolphins.

Your blame should go towards CMR... and he should receive criticism for not making the move earlier... based on what he's been saying and what we witnessed yesterday something doesn't add up!

TruCane81

Can’t believe how NOTHING the coaching staff says, WWIN.

Learned the hard way with kool aid poisoning.

WWIN

Few more moves left for CMR...

1. Try a new punter
2. Move Hall ahead of Knowles
3. Move Donaldson back to guard
4. Make Deejay Dallas the starter
5. Start Scaife at LT and move St. Louis back to RT

His Majesty The Dude on High

Oregon moved up to #19 despite losing. Thats rare.

Idk about starting, but he definitely should have got more reps, especially against Toledo. I feel like its this teams duty, from coaches to players, heck even the janitors have got to get Perry comfortable with as much as possible. He has to much arm talent to be sitting behind Rosier at this point. Start Perry on Thursday.

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: WWIN | September 23, 2018 at 04:05 PM

1. Do we have another? Seriously Idk.
2. Yes.
3. Agreed, it makes our run game much better.
4. He kind of is.
5. Hmm... I doubt Scaife is a tackle at the college level. If he makes a debut there, I would think start him at RT and see how he does. The problem is St. Louis really isnt that good on either side, even if the right is his best. This team is seriously lacking OT talent. If we just had a Linder type at RT we'd be okay. We need 3 OTs for the '19 cycle.

UGA fans tried to warn us CorchMR can't make tuff decisions

WWIN

1. I believe we have a walk-on punter #CantBeAnyWorse

4. No... we need to get the offense off and running from the first possession. Dallas knows how to make something out of nothing and I think Homer is better coming off the bench... especially when the defense is a little gassed.

5. #CantBeAnyWorse
