To answer a commonly used argument against the O, yes it struggles against really good defenses. Show me another offense that has never struggled against the top defenses. In addition to that, many of us feel we haven't seen the full capability of the offense yet. Yes, it's been 6 years, but all the pieces haven't come together AT ONE TIME, yet. Each year, it seems, we lack one or two critical pieces needed to get over the hump. Each year it's the same story only which pieces we lack change. This year it was experience at the qb position. Also a depleated OL especially at OT.
Next year we lose Sims, OLs, RobbieG, and 6 starters off of our defense, so does that mean we need to hold off until year 10 to accurately judge this guy.
Please tell us when it is "fair" to assess CPJ's coaching ability?
On most CFB teams rarely does everything line up perfectly, that is why the HC and his Coordinators have to adjust to their TALENT, and that is why those 3 guys make the big bucks.
Let's see, CPJ shouldn't be held accountable because all the pieces haven't come together at one time, but OTOH when ReggieB didn't develop at the same time we had great players like Calvin, then too bad we still hold the HC accountable.
Why are your standards so inconsistent?
