Given a choice it's always preferable to be able to stop the other team better than most others can rather than score more often than most others and have your defense surrender around 30 a game, so this is not the worst thing that can happen. Only those like your GD's of the world would try and argue otherwise on that point because that's the sign of a sid-tard, but you can win football games consistently by not shooting your own feet off if you can shut everything else down so I'll accept it for now.

Not likely seeing as how they didn't have Chaisson available at all since the opener to try and rush the passer with and they still pushed the final margin of victory higher regardless of the abscence, but I'm sure anything to disregard how their corch choked away a national title to a team that couldn't even win the weak half of your own league last year will be used to get them through this one too, seems pretty par for the uga course since I've been alive. At least there's two weeks for them all to start cocktail partying to drown their suddenly resurgent fears of the largest outdoor one on its way I suppose.

A lot of our QB problems has to do with the OL and play calling! Our OL is 70% of what's wrong with our offense. Richt needs to put our QBs in better situation!

AeroCane

I’m gonna say it - I’m done with this fucking idiot named Mark Richt
You will see/ we will start losing recruits, guys will transfer etc
For the good of the team let’s hope the idiot in charge gets a calling from ‘god’ and quits!
I refuse to watch the demise! It will come quick - lingard will transfer first if he doesn’t start playing a bigger RB role; of course N’Kosi should transfer; Weldon is in the dog house; nesta is not playing nearly enough (he’s great and way better than the transfer kid with the stupid penalty’s.

Bye! We don't need fans like you!

thirstybuzzardcane

There's no difference between Perry and Rosier. Let's win the coastal and sees what happens against Clemson!

AeroCane

I’ve probably been a fan longer than you! Since 1965! And again, I’ll stick by what I said; and when richt and his shit ego go away, maybe we will get a coach who:
Plays to win rather than to lose
Plays with a fun, upbeat offense;
Has the balls to fire a coach who isn’t cutting it; etc

DallasTX Cane

Anyone willing to give the benefit of the doubt and consider that (not so) Smart Mark decided that playing any QB behind the rotting corpse of an OL we trot out week after week is a recipe for physical damage, emotional & psychological damage and so figured might as well let the senior suffer??

Go Canes!!

Imo there has to be some kind of disconnect between Perry and CMR.

It’s the only explanation that makes any sense.

AeroCane

Dallas - that a great thought lol

mi@mic@ne

Everyone knows that I wanted Butch. And if you go back to those post you will see that after they hired Richt it was a big let down. So in order to become a team player , I made the point that Richt would change because he was a miami guy who in the mold of Snells. And I purposely tried to forget that he was disciples by bowden knowing that after JJ had built up our talent that we scored 31 points in the final game of JJs era and held them to single digits... JJ was out of FSWhos league. JJ left the Canes with so much talent that Erickson said that the teams standards were so high that they were teaching him how Canes dominate....thats when we established the culture for all college football that was called swagger....then after Erickson terrible recruiting the team slipped back to losing. Then we got Butch who took us from being on probation to assembling a team that was full of first round picks..it was said that the 2002 team could compete with a few NFL teams.... But instead of rewarding Butch for taking us out of probation and remaking the Cane dynasty they bring in the o coordinator under Bowden who was soundly beaten by JJ with butch as d coordinator.

Herbieibis

Cane's fans,all valid points. The Herb understands your frustrations. Richt is a play not to lose coach, instead a play to win Coach first. Nothing exciting about his offense and for a coach who first told Rosier he would never play for him and now he just can't get rid of his saftey net.
Our bigger problem is the offensive line. We Have No True Offensive Tackles. Now not only do we have a problem passing but running as well. I don't care who the QB is, as I think both are average at best. Perry has the better arm. Rosier runs it better. At the moment we have no offensive identity. We have no go to Wr. One game it's Thomas, one game it's Harley, one game it's Jordan and one game it'Cager.
We got to speed guys that we can't seem to get the ball to. Our RB's are good but rather if it's Homer, Dallas or Linegard, running behind this line is arduous.
Think about this out of our first team offense and defense16 are Golden boys. Now Richt has had 2 full recruiting cycles and he can't find 2 or 3 guys to play tackle? Not only is he a lousy offensive mind, he's slipped up bad in certain positions recruiting. When u have no body better than Joned, Gauthier and Mahoney u shit your pants somewhere.
Rosier is as good as he is going to get. A QB whisper wouldn't BUT if Richt would devise a game plan to his strengths, if might not be half bad and the same with Perry But that won't happen because Richt won't change.
Three problems are killing this team, Special teams and mainly the punting. Two the play calling and three which our biggest problem, is the Offensive line.
These problems aren't going away this year.

solarcane

Ill say this again
Grown ass men need not shed tears nor sweat for 19 yr old boys that get full scholarships and go on to be millionaires.

Pretty much the hilite of the last decade for me was watching Bosher run down the field and annihilate guys.
Now we have 11 Boshers on defense.

I am enjoying this years version of a season going down the drain more than most previous ones, Im good.

Us old guys are fortunate to watch the dynasty that went all the way back to the early 80s ...even tho we only won 5 titles and cheated out of 2 in that time from 83 to 2002 we were most always in the mix for the titles....very proud of those Canes

Recruit better players. Imo he will fix this part. He’s got a top LT committed and HAS to get Neal.

Agree. He’s not doing his mediocre OL any favors either. His predictability sets them up for even more failure.

This blog is nothing but an emotional rollercoaster! When we kill BC I'm sure everyone will be talking ACC championship....LOL!

Dude on a Pale Horse

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | October 17, 2018 at 07:36 PM

So true.

Dude on a Pale Horse

The OL is sucking because Searels is terrible. Someone show me what play you call when your Center is picked up and put down in your QB's lap. Show me what play counters the LT not touching the DE, or the RT for that matter. I see Gs whiffing completely also. This is the worst awfensive line in recent memory. Even with all the smart, short passing game in the world, this OL is terrible and will get exposed.

Harry Miller

Started going to games in the late 40's saw all those champion ship teams get built, Then seen them get destroyed. Just hope I get to see them get great again. I don't think it's going to be with this jackass unless he get a real OC and a QB coach along with a st coach.
that's not asking for to much is it.

Harry Miller

Oh and a new DL coach. Yea I might be asking for to much.

Go,
He has Tarquin coming in, who has to have labrum surgery and Neal is a probable but that being said, that still not enough. Searles ain't even in Art's league. Hell u could crawl out from underneath a rock and Art would make u descent.
The rest of these games will be nip and tuck and sooner or later the Defense will have a bad half. We have the tools to be good we just need a motivational coach who don't look and sound like he just smoked a Doobie!

Know it’s pile on time but last time I checked Richt is also head coach of the defense and they don’t seem to be doing pretty damn good.

If only he had that attacking style on offense. I really think Richt shout play his 2 minute offense the whole game! We do really well when we're in the hurry up offense.

This offense is an easy fix, we have the damn talent. We could even make the OL look good!

thirstybuzzardcane

*should 👆👆👆

thirstybuzzardcane

More passes to the RB's, quick slants to the WR, and more seam and drag routes for the TE's is the ticket for success!

And please please let's have guy in motion to at least let the defense think a little bit!

AeroCane

Go - twist things how you want but you’re wrong! That’s not a comparison and is idiotic. Richt is the OC; he needs to held accountable as OC; he’s not the DC; If Diaz wasn’t doing his job we be calling for his head

Go Canes!!

Mixed up pretty damn good and not too bad but you get the point

AeroCane

Thirsty - I understand what you’re saying and I think everyone would agree BUT what makes you think he will change anything for more than a half or if we’re lucky a full game? He’s been the same guy for a long time now. IJS

Won’t make us the greatest show on turf but could help give THE PILLAGE a little support.

Something is wrong with strength and conditioning, ol coaching or both.

Even including McDermott last year, our ol is constantly whiffing and getting rag dolled.

The predictability allowing defenses to cheat makes them look a lot worse, but the way they get physically dominated is alarming. These guys are 3 stars but play like 0 stars.

Something is very, very wrong that goes well beyond their lack of pure physical talent.

Leverage and want to can allow less physically gifted ol men to compete. These guys were sought after by d1 programs and look like naia.

TruCane81

Golden’s lines played WAYYYYYY better than Richt’s so blaming it on them just being goldenites is pretty simplistic.

Harry Miller

We are missing a great opportunity. I am a dedicated Christian and loved it when MR was hired.
The problem is he is not going to get us to the top. The parents of most of the 4 & 5 star high school players want their sons to be with a coach that will look after their child and make a better man out of him. That's is one of MR top qualities.
These kids wan't to be on a champion ship team along with making their parents happy and becoming a asset to their community making good grades and getting to the next level.
Just think how good we could be if MK concentrated more on one of his greatest assets
and hired the right coaches to do what he is not good at. We all know what that is. He needs to admit this for the sake of the kids, school, fans and himself.
