Were you watching the same games as everyone else? It was tailored to KA… For instance, on the jet sweep option, KA kept the ball how many times? None. On zone read plays, none of them; this was due to his limited athleticism (although I think he should have kept it a few times anyway). Second, one thing you’ll notice is that KP did not have to make more than 2 reads on designed pass plays. He would look to one side of the field only, as compared to Kyle Allen trying to drop back and scan the entire field (you’re asking to give up pressure to a QB holding the ball). There were a ton of quick slants ran as well. You didn’t see that with KA as much. BJ kept it simple, and it worked during the 1st half but caught up with us in the second when it became too predictable. Even the couple times when we went to a completely empty set, KP had one read and went there immediately following the snap.That brings me to my next point, people on these boards need to view this situation as objectively as possible.
- We had a starter who got all the reps-he did not preform well
- Got a new starting QB who preformed decent but was without reps (he struggled with timing)
- Temple’s defense adjusted to the vanilla play calling (they took advantage of the QB with little reps)
- King is back (seems healthy too)
6)Corbin is slowly becoming a deep threat ( I bet he has a big day vs Smoo’s secondary)
- Once we finally settle on a QB (I think Postma is that guy) the offense will improve due to continuity (it’s really hard to be worse).
Yes the scoreboard every week says there is a need to panic, but the circumstances change weekly around the QB position. Let BJ and KP get used to each other, and then, if, then, it doesn’t pay off ( we don’t score at least 30 a game), then we panic.
