Not sure what the issue is.. Is it WRs, QBs, System.. but teams are realling trying to stop the run and we still seldom get guys open, Even the completions are hard. Are all the DBs that good we play against. There have to be some blown caverages but we see very few.. BC had probably 7-10 balls thrown to guys with 3-5 yds of open space, how many did we see? You look all over and the teams like Virg/Wake/Pitt that throw, guys are open play after play.. Thats not all system doing it because teams are playing man against some of those plays.

We need a dynamic WR. Alford can be a good deep threat and Jackson a nice slot guy, but we need that guy. How do some of these teams have 2-3 of those guys and we cant find one for year.

Our running game stacks up with anyone in the country but indeed our passing game needs some real work. It is a combination of everything you mentioned and it will be a major thing on Dino’s to-do list over the next month and especially over the off-season.

How about we start in 2 weeks vs Louisville, yes it will be a work in progress but no reason we can’t complete more passes esp when the box is stacked with 7-8 guys

Well it's a mix. There have been beautiful passes just absolutely whiffed on by wideouts


And there have been ducks that I can't believe weren't picked

The WR’s haven’t gotten open no matter who the QB is. Haven’t a couple coaches said that the WR’s run very basic routes? And we need elite talent to make our passing game work?

I really don't care about the passing game. Run it against 6 in the box. Run it against 8 in the box. Run it against 10 in the box. Run it when its not working, because it will. Sean Tucker is the offense, and then Garrets legs.

Pass it to keep them honest, And then run it again.

Just run the ball. Period. Eventually the D is going to fold.
