Three mistakes by the offense in the beginning, the defense getting beat to the edges consistently and instead of throwing it away
another ill advised pass at the worst possible time. That's the game right there.
- The Boyle experiment is really just a waste of downs. It gives him 3-6 plays worth of experience a game? I guess it's better than nothing and I'm sure if UConn is up by four touchdowns he'd be seeing prolonged time but the offense needs to score now..not next year. Now that the season is officially lost I wonder if Diaco will give him more than a couple of sets.
- The Foxx substitution is only effective if he can keep the defense honest by completing a pass.
- I'm glad Puyol is getting his mistakes in this year. I doubt we'll see him shank another kickoff into the sidelines.
- Saw a couple defensive starters go down to injury. Hope it was just dings and not anything serious.
- I liked Diaco's approach to calls by the officials. Your not going to change their mind anyways so no use in fretting over it.
As far as the original poster's comparison to P's performances:
The outcomes may be similar but instead of the team getting worse by the week I believe slowly but surely they are getting better. Sure... Army beat up the defense. Now they've seen just about everything anyone can throw at them short of Oregon's insane offensive pace. The Huskies will be able to seek revenge next September and it should be a good test for their meeting with Navy. The offensive line looks to be heading in the right direction, the running backs are young but very good. Same with the receivers. They'll need an experienced QB to guide them and next year will be all about that. Who starts at QB?
Hey... it's a young team all in all. I'm looking forward to next year. They'll be bigger, faster and a little more experienced. Hopefully the dumb mistakes they make this year will not be repeated next year.... to include coaching decisions.
