Right before the half
Much has been made of the three runs that were called on our last possession before the half vs BC that resulted in a quick punt. Check out the third run. It begins at the 38:15 mark of this recording (sorry about the poor resolution):

When Tears went in motion it brought his defender into the box. Wimann then had two guys to block and could only get one while the other made the tackle. Look how well the rest of that play was blocked. If not for the extra defender Jones is still running. It makes you wonder what was going on there schematically.

RE: Right before the half
Blake's bad return put them in a tough spot. When you catch the ball at the 5, running sideways is a bad decision.

If Graham had the option on any of those run plays, he would had been successful. No one really keyed in him.

Another in a series of baffling decisions by Carey in having Blake in this spot.

"I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't try to go for it and put another score on the board."
If we scored in the last two minutes and then scored on the kickoff right after the half the game would be over.
Coaches need to take advantage of having those two possessions in a row.

RE: Right before the half
It was good to see they were options, made me feel a bit better. Still think you need to have so something more creative on the 3rd down with 5-6 to go.

Also don't love the kneel down after they score. I get it...but feel you have to take your shots against a team like that.

I've never been a big believer in Blake. I can't list anything he's really good at. I am/was hoping he'd improve this year, but as of now I have him as the second weakest starter on the team behind QB.

Agree. He is the most heavy footed receiver I can remember. Just not good footwork and inefficient

Maybe Carey will make him our designated jet sweeper.

Not sure how you can judge Blake as a WR by that game? Most of the throws his way weren't within 10 feet of him...

Do you people like anybody associated with the football program (other than Huff) right now? Holy ****.
