Overall, I think we have some talent in the defensive backfield, but it is clear to all that 1) our pass rush is below average, giving the QB time to find his man, and 2) our safeties are more run-stoppers and struggle in coverage.
The combination of those two seems to leave our CBs on an...
BIG PLAYS at the end. It was a back and forth game between two decent teams. Nice to see our guys raise up and make plays when it counts. Sims, A. Sanders, even J. THomas. That feels like something we haven't seen in a while!
Pitt has a good team, but we once again beat ourselves. 2 early Turnovers, , missed tackles, bad defensive plan, blocked FG. Biggest disappointment was the OL. They really looked bad (at least, from what I saw). Lots of improvement still needed.
It's never as bad or as good as it seems...
Just re-watched the condensed game (The replay is not showing up on espn for me to watch?). I totally forgot about a huge play.
4th quarter. 14:19 left to play. UNC had just scored, and was only down 27-13. GT ball, 4th down and 3. If we miss this, UNC gets the ball and momentum to cut it...
I just wanted to take a moment and give a shout out to our special teams. It seems they are finally “special” in a good way. Here are some highlights:
-Cimiglia 3/3 on FGs. When was the last time we were 3/3 on FGs? After a horrible first game, he has looked really good.
Here is a ranking of ACC Coastal teams:
1b) Va. Tech
1e) Georgia Tech
Coastal Chaos is in full effect! Maybe this is the year we all tie at 4-4 and go to tie-breaker hell!
whoa, whoa, guys. Calm down. We are all on the same side here.
Here is what I know from being a GT fan for 25+ years. We ALWAYS do our best when there are lower expectations coming into the season. ALWAYS. So let them keep ranking us at the bottom. They won't see us coming. :)
Hate to see the run end, but it was indeed a valiant effort. Archer with a complete game shutout in the first game (WHA!!!?), and multiple comebacks in the second game gave us a chance to pull it off in the end--even a 2-run homer in the bottom of the 11th, but it still wasn't enough. They...
That’s a good question. Of course, we have no idea, especially since it remains to be seen the actual talent and skill of many of those players and how they will gel together (which was a HUGE part of this year’s success). But with my limited knowledge, I would guess that this team could hang...
Yeah, it didn't mean to sound harsh or against Pastner. I just recognize that he isn't a Hall of Fame coach, and that's ok. He had a great year, and I am ready to give him credit for that. The point of my post was how thankful I am that he didn't move on, not because he is irreplaceable, but...
