Defensive Line Vs Tulane

I'm glad we played much better in the 2nd half defensively and came out with a win. However, our D-line really looks shaky. If we could not cause much havoc in the backfield vs a squad like Tulane then I hate to see what will happen later this year against opponents of more talent.

It was hard for me to tell on TV, but I was rather disappointed with our corners. Roof dialed up some pressure in the second half, but our corners seemed to give a large cushion to their receivers.

We had a few more "should be" picks that our guys dropped.

The line to me seemed to hold their own. A lot of the deep passes were rollouts away from our pressure. Some were just quick outs before pressure got there.

At times made the back 7 look shaky. Welp Teddy gets paid good money to figure this stuff out. Plan is in hand.

The funny thing is the guy calling the game was talking about how good the DL looked. But he just played in the NFL, so whatevs.

Well CTR did something right at halftime, the D held Tulane to under 130 yards total in the 2nd half.
I'm sure glad Roof made adjustments. I'd just like us to start out of the gate a little quicker next week. We were making Tulane's O look like world beaters in the 1st half.

For only rushing 4 at times I thought they played better than I expected.

Got no pressure with 4. I think Stargel got a sack with only 4 but besides that I don't even think he was ever rushed. It seemed whenever we blitzed they would throw a screen, like they had our signals. Aaaaargh.

I thought that same thing about them outguessing our blitzes.

It wasn't great, that's for sure. But did you see the "on screen" stat that stated their O-line averaged 6'5, 309lbs?? That had a lot to do with it.

There's no reason, at all, to be surprised by the DL. The only thing that has surprised me is how I haven't noticed Gotsis one time this season.
