I wonder why Duke Catalon only had two attempts
Not wanting to injure starters?
There is no reason to expose your starters to unnecessary risk of injury at this point in the preseason. The coaches know what the returning starters can do. This first scrimmage was more about finding replacements for starters, and assessing the readiness of last years’ reserves and our new players to fit into the rotation this year. When you see Oliver, Adams, Winchester, Davis, Williams, and Vaughan with as few tackles as they had yesterday and Mulbah Car, Patrick Carr, and Davion Mitchell having the most carries, you know something is up. Sure Bonner had the most catches, but I doubt that he had any more plays than McGowan, Singleton, Jefferson, McLemore, Leday, or Mark. He just was in a position to catch more (probably because he was consistently the best option and the QBs knew he would catch the ball).
Agreed. The receivers are going to get reps because they need to line up with the QB’s.
I like Postma’s stats
Duke had 2 receptions also so he was on the field at least some. Some of his biggest plays last year were receiving out of the backfield in the red zone.
I like how Kyle Allen had 124 yards on 15 throws after taking out his longest reception (or 8.3 ypc).
Taking out D’Eriq’s longest throw, you’re only left with 63 yards on 14 completions, or 4.5 ypc.
I was a bit surprised that D’Eriq didn’t get more rushing yards but the QB is wrapped up in scrimmages and is probably more focused on throwing (?).
No attempts by Burrell? That is surprising.
Postma is a quality dual threat. He just gets hurt too much doing what he does best.
