Don't turn the ball over. Complete short easy passes. Hand it off to our RBs.


In other words, get the ball to your playmakers.

Works if you have playmakers and those that can open space for them. If not, you get up the middle, up the middle, up the middle, punt, which is better than up the middle, delay of game, fumble inside your own 20, I suppose.

If we have somebody who can hit deep passes in stride, that would be better. But apparently we don't.

If we don't, then the next best thing in my mind is to move the ball safely with short passes and the running game.

There have been a lot of complaints hereover the years about Bailiff trying to force his players to do things they are not suited to do. (square pegs, round holes) This appears to be a case of adjusting his offense to his talent. Isn't that what we have wanted him to do?

Bottom line, I just want to see scoring from the offense. If this is the way to do it, fine. I don't care if we play without a QB as long as it works. I don't care if every play is a QB dive, if that works. I am very results oriented, not means oriented.

A QB who can "manage the game" is usually just a way of saying you don't have a playmaker under center.

Manziel was not a "game manager" at QB.

Exactly! Let's hope the Owls have some at RB and the receiver positions.

RE: Practices
Well yes we do not have Deshaun Watson or Johnny Manziel on the roster, but every QB is coached like they are going to be a game manager. Go according to the script, run the play that is called, and go through your progressions. Especially when you have a young QB you're not going to let them make too many checks at the line or audible out of bad looks because they don't know what they're looking at yet. However, every offense in the country rely's on broken plays that turn in to big plays regardless of how well they function according to the system. I don't think any of us know quite yet which of our QB's is best at making broken plays big plays, but I know coach Lynch is not going to handicap them by saying they need to stay in a box. They'll have the liberty to scramble and try and make plays, and they have their rules (like every QB in the country) that keep them from making a bad play worse. So sure, they're young and we'll have to limit what they call and what we take in to a game week but that does not make them a game manager. Take care of the ball, hit your big plays when they're there, and if one of them is clearly good at making big plays happen off script then we'll see it pretty quickly.

Get the play off in time too I hope...but that depends mostly on getting play calls in efficiently.

Tiki-what stadium is that?

I too hope that our QB doesnt have deep and pervasive substance and emotional issues.

But that probably isnt the definition by negation you were looking for....

McHargue..gotta push back and disagree with you on this one. You and Chase were not game managers.

Both of you made plays with your mind, your feet, and your arm (and your heart when hurt)....and the results may have been more W's than all the other QB's in the DB era combined.

Unfortunately, we have not seen Glaesman or Smalls yet but what we have seen of the other two is that they are game managers who have not shown that ability to go beyond what they are coached to do which is run the play called and not make it through progressions, on-the-line checks, making positive things happen from broken plays, etc.

In Australia, I hope DB has the same confidence in one of the new Freshman that he had in you before that Texas game many years ago. That was one of his best coaching decisions.

Tiki-what stadium is that?

A Google Image search using the image URL (https://vgy.me/wnpFI7.gif) pegs it as Buffalo/Buff Stadium, the minor league baseball park primarily used by the Houston Buffaloes from 1928 through 1961 (except for 1943 to 1945 because of World War II).

According to the Wikipedia page linked above, it was bounded by Leeland Street, St. Bernard Street (present-day Cullen Boulevard), Coyle Street, and Milby Street in the East End.

I don't know about that. Granato hasn't shown anything. He's barely played. Tyner showed some good flashes against UTEP last year and was horrible against Stanford.

Too early to judge either one IMO. In the video posted on Twitter today, I caught a couple of glimpses and it appeared to be Tyner running with the first team O.
