    - Ugly, ugly, ugly showing all the way around

    - Started the game off like we have all big games...dumb penalties and playing sloppy.

    - Blocking was/is putrid

    - I'm really concerned about our QB development.

    - Attaochu and Godhigh had big plays as usual.

    - Really worried with some things going forward..

    - Chase Roberts, Sean Tobin, Brandon Watts, Charles Perkins and Dennis Andrews all hurt tonight

    CPJ is NOT a football genius when it comes to the big boys

    Justin is too athletic to not get more snaps... CPJ needs to put together a package for him for when our Vad-led offense is stalling. Also, Robbie is the best A-back I've seen at Tech, rocket toss doesn't work on fourth down, and, above all....

    Our offensive scheme literally sucks. The triple option sucks. The spread option whatever you want to call it. It sucks.

    I would like to see some changes with our offense.

    Hope we get things turned around for the UGA game.

    I thought it came down to a combination of Clemson with better football players and those better players executing better than the Tech players.
    If you do not block the defense, no scheme on the planet will work.

    Blocking is a huge issue. This is older group as well.

    Justin has a lot better arm to be considerd the running QB and Vad the passer. Vad looked good throwing the ball tonight but I believe JT has to takeover next year if were gonna run the option most of the game. I believe he make the option more lethal.

    Agree. We lose Finch, Jackson and Beno. Some new blood from the redshirts coming in next year.

    We need to improve our offensive talent level and adapt to utilize the skillset of the athletes we do have. I felt bad for our defense, they played well in the first quarter, but got put in bad positions and were worn down.

    JT or Vad whatever...
    Until the real problem is changed it doesn't matter.

    How offense is the problem of a Paul Johnson coached team is beyond me. Not sure if QB is making bad reads or blocking is just that terrible..

    Yeah JT against Clemson's cheerleading squad was real impressive. I still haven't seen anything except speed from JT, speed which could be used elsewhere (he would have caught the pass Godhigh missed at the end of the 2nd quarter - think about that.) JMO.

    I hope the team didn't spend the bye week practicing for this game. I'd like to think they spent the time learning a useful skill because they clearly weren't prepared tonight. It seems like the OL just dives straight forward with their heads down. If they are going to cut block - which after the past 3 seasons we can all agree only works against the lower tier opponents - they need to hit something besides air and grass.

    Running the option the way Clemson was stacking the box in the first quarter wasn't great play calling. When we are in the pistol it seems we have more time to throw. Not just because of having more space from the center, but the way the defense plays the option formation. Maybe some zone reads might help. I know the blocking isn't great but not being able to double team studs because there are 8-9 in the box is difficult.

    This was NOT about our QB's it was about lack of blocking, catching, and putrid play calling.

    Sloppy sloppy special teams. CDW needs to go and let us hire another ST coach who can do better. We have Butker and Golden so we have the talent on ST's.

    Golden was missed with rerun game it showed too! O line can't block a giants elite D lineman. Hurts lee when he doesn't have time pretty much like the falcons. Defense was completely outplayed

    Horrible game...period. CPJ better not throw the Defense under the bus next week in his pressers

    CPJ is to blame for out Offense

    Vad in my opinion looks like he has gotten worse from last year

    I think Justin Thomas needs to get more snaps

    We simply don't play well against the big boys...CPJ is squarely at fault

    Blocking was really really bad, 78 whiffed a bunch, 70, missed a key block, Deon Hill couldn't get his man on the ground. SHM

    I never thought we were going to win last night...

    I can't pinpoint what it is, but vad is playing with something hurting him and isn't running like we saw last year and early on.

    How different does Vad look than Tevin in the pocket? Not different at all. The problem on O is all about the big ugly boys in the trenches. We do not have the speed to pass/run block against a fast, physical, and talented DL. That is the problem in a nutshell, and the reason Vad looks no better than Tevin in passing situations. We need better players in the trenches if the offense is ever going to improve beyond 6-7 wins a year. I think we have wasted schollies on A backs when we should have used them on linemen. I would rather be great in the trenches and have mediocre skill players.

    I agree. That's been an issue since we played Iowa in the Orange Bowl. It's not a problem with the offensive scheme. It's a problem that many schools have.

    I think I am less disappointed that we lost and more disappointed in how we did it. Offense has been frustrating to watch. I was hoping that we would put up some fight and show we are an above average team. I hate it, but we are a middle of the road squad again this year.

    On the two fourth downs I saw, CPJ called the rocket toss twice. The first time didn't work because at least 2 guys didn't move fast enough to get to their blocks. The second one was executed very well and we got 5-6 yards on a 4 and 3.
