Does Mettenberger not have a timer in his head when he stands in the pocket for 6 seconds before getting sacked? I have never seen a qb that has less of a feel for pressure as Zack does. He just sits there and waits for it. Just take three steps forward and he will have even more time to find our one receiver pattern.
The pocket could not sustain longer than 3 seconds throughout most of the game. He should have been rolled out more so he has the chance to throw the ball away without drawing an intentional grounding. Problem with that is he is very off and on when throwing on the move.

I see it both ways after a game like this.
Mettenberger has always had an issue with no getting the ball out quickly enough and being indecisive in the pocket.
But tonight, the Arkansas defensive line blew the LSU offensive line off the ball on a number of occasions. Vadal Alexander was getting pushed backwards quicker than Mettenberger's drop back on one of the sacks.

yeah oline didn't play too well tonight... we had more success with the quick passes against bama and didn't get into 3rd and long as much...
The past few weeks I thought Mett had really made strides with his pocket presence, along with the rest of his game. However, today he definitely seemed to take a step backward and I don't think it's a coincidence that this happens at a time where we seemed to have reverted to our pre-Bama game offensive playcalling & gameplanning. Really glad we won the game, but today we really went away from what had been a more imaginative offense and some of the execution didn't help.
Least we are throwing the ball.
These last few games watching LSU throw the ball, has really been an enjoyment.
Sorta feel like maybe we've been forced into it though.
Ole Miss and Arkansas both went all out with the passing game.
The SEC may be changing.
He did hold onto the ball longer than he should on a couple of occasions but LSU got beat in the trenches badly on both sides of the ball, taking into consideration their level of their opponents.
He's made improvement in that area but that is the one thing he really needs to improve on this spring in my opinion.
