I will be there watching with hope for a good year. On O I will be watching the Oline to see if they run block for 8 or if he needs to make runs on his own. Also will the pa$$ protection be good enough to allow the QB time to throw or run for his life. Will the QB throw well and will the receivers get open? On D our pa$$ coverage was good at the end of the season. But we lost the corner coach to Purdue. Will the coverage still be good? Will the Dline get any pressure on the QB? Will we be able to control the run with the Dline and linebackers which was poor last year. And have the running back not always falling forward when tackled. Those are the keys in my mind.

Qb still has bad footwork and still has that side arm sling shot throwing motion.  He will never be accurate if they donít adjust it.  At times seems hesitant when making making decision on where to throw.  Puts pressure on a suspect Line.  Thank god for #8.   
A Penguin for life!!!

When the DC says the players are going fast and hard it means he doesn't know what he's doing
  What kind of soft zone are we running?  They have no real threats yet we are playing a prevent.  Also why didn't we go into a 2 minute offense with 1:31 left in Q2 and 3 timeouts?

That's just bad.

I will try to holding judgement, but this far unimpressed.  Maybe Phillips will work with the DC. This won't cut it in our league.

I know we are ahead.
But, defense has been playing too soft against the pa$$. Offense lacked imagination.

This team is just flat. This may be a long year.

I have really did not see much improvement on D from last year. The QB had all day to throw the ball since we could put any pressure on him.

Yes, they did. Dukes self destructed in the 4Q with that 4th down sequences.
