Sir: Please read what i said.
I said IF the offense we saw saturday night is not corrected we lose 4 games.
Big difference from "predicting" 4 losses....does anyone actually read what is written ????
This is a decent assessment, FIRNY.
If the WR would hold on to the football there would be less criticism of the offense. Dropping an open bomb and a third down completion which would have extended drives and loosened the defense some was a large part of this game and help take the crowd out of it some. The loss of the LSU LT is a major issue and the offense might as well get used to keeping backs in to block if we pass. That often takes away the screen or pass to the back out of the backfield and limits the pass game further. The problem is LSU started doing this on third and long situations only, when the defense is ready for the pass and really geared for it.
It is true they took away offensive aggressiveness after the fumbles and fumbles are correctable issues. Especially the kind of fumbles we had against Auburn. It turned the game and the crowd immediately seized and inspired what should have been an ordinary defense at best.
The other correctable issue is the offensive lack of poise. Too many penalties, false starts ,etc. They played disjointed and uncertain, particularly in the red zone or for third and short situations.
Regards to All,
I agree, stats show 44 vs 27 passes. In reality it was 36-35 pass. That is not a usual Les Miles offense.

Firny, maybe i misunderstood what you meant by corrected. If "corrected" means changed, then it ain't gonna happen. This is our offense. That's what i thought you were saying. If "corrected" means clean up the penalties and missed assignments, then i apologize for reading it the wrong way and agree with you. Maybe not the 4 losses , but i get where you are coming from.

yeah mosty from an execution standpoint. I will admit I have little faith in Miles to correct anything now on offense. I cant figure out if it his philosophy, his teaching/coaching, or his lack mof knowledge about offensive football. But there is SOMETHING MISSING when it comes to the LSU O under Miles. I am very concerned because I have seen nothing so far in 4 games that says we are improving or that we are capable of beating UF, Bama, USC or MSU.
I have played and been around team sports all my life. You dont become great overnight. I am very worried about this year.
It's going to be great to have these two at LSU.
