JD Periscope from Philly on Friday night
2017-09-30 09:00:22 UTC
At Citizens Bank Stadium to watch the Phillies and Mets and starts off by showing off the stadium. Says it's his 39th Major League stadium he's visited.
Thinks this will be a good game for the offense to get going
Temple's offense is not good at scoring and their defense isn't great either
Thinks it'll be 28-10 or 28-13 as he isn't convinced on UH offense
Thinks Allen will start, but King will be in the mix. Mentions that there might be some trick plays or passes with both on the field
Jefferson is a go tomorrow at WR. Healthy now after the injury in Arizona
Point of emphasis this week was the center snap
Wilder out, PCL injury. Probably a week or 2 before he's back
Small is out for season with an internal injury
Myres will be back this week. Had a concussion in practice which is why he wasn't playing last week.
Javian Smith is out
Carter is still out
One offensive starter will be out tomorrow, but not sure who it is
Breaks for national anthem
Mentions that there aren't many people at the game
IPF update: Early November is now when it should be completed
Doesn't believe that King will start tomorrow, probably will be Allen
Talks about his days covering the Astros and coming up to Philly and what cheesesteaks he ate
Too early to know whether Allen is transferring, Coogs could be 10-1, 9-2, 7-4, who knows.
Memphis and USF are toughest left on the schedule. Rest of the schedule isn't too tough.
Foresees the offense to kind of go in the direction that Levine took it when Ward was brought in and it got reenergizes
Thinks the offense needs to take more chances deep if Allen is going to play and stop doing so many short passes
If King is on the field, let it loose and go down the field
Have some guys that can get down the field, use them
Temple will run the ball, that's what they do. Their starting RB has been off to a slow start this year
Temple has 3 guys that can play QB tomorrow
Leday can qualify for the national lead in kickoff returns if he gets 2 returns tomorrow
K.Williams has excelled in that nickel spot. Loves it and says it is a fun way to be used.
Impressed with defense. Couple of plays due to fatigue. Got caught on a tempo touchdown.
Major talked to them and told them to be firefighters, they have to put out the fires that the offense creates.
Defense did a good job doing that Saturday considering all the turnovers
Thinks they'll split with Memphis and USF and finish 9-2 or 8-3 at worst. Says that Navy and SMU may jump up and beat them
Major talked about leadership. Ward wasn't vocal, but you saw his leadership qualities on the field. Haven't gotten that at QB yet.
9-2 and a chance at 10 wins would be a success. 7-4 or worse would be a failure.
Thought the offense would be better. The defense has done great so far.
Alabama now has the longest home winning streak
Talks Astros, says with Verlander that changes a lot of things for the playoffs. Says they should be good against Boston. Wonders if Cleveland used all their bullets with their winning at the end of the season.
2nd batter of the game hits a homer and JD boos to fit in with the Philly fans
Likes Matt Rhule. Followed JD on twitter in 2015 and mentioned it in a press conference.

Tulane has a very good D again and there O seems better.
