    Rate Doug Nussmeier at the halfway point

    It's to early to do a thorough evaluation but if he wasn't very good I think it'd be more apparent.

    I'm to lazy to compile stats on the offense vs previous years and don't think that is the best way to evaluate his impact as the offensive coordinator.

    Red zone offense seems to have improved although AJ gives the advantage of an experienced QB.

    It may be until we see the next QB to lead Alabama before we can judge Nussmeier fairly.

    So far I give him an A.


    --------------------------
    side note - I like what i see from Brent Pease at Florida.

    Muschamp was right to lock him up before Saban could talk to him.

    I agree on giving him a A. To be honest, I have not noticed a lot of difference between his and Mc's play calling except we are not doing wildcat and we are using a fullback this year. I am please that he is getting the ball in Eddie, TJ and Amari's hands and that is a very good thing.

    B+

    By his own admission they are inconsistent in the passing game. IMO the main reason is shaky pass protection from the tackles - blame whoever you want for that.

    More inconsistent maybe, but the routes seem more aggressive too. I like it.

    I think we have only scratched the surface of what his play book might have to offer. I think this question might be better answered after LSU. I commend he and the staff for not creating an issue with a complete offensive scheme change. 7-0 with those numbers while losing many playmakers gets an A from me.

    We are a little inconsistent and we have gotten off to slow starts a couple of times. We've also left points on the field as well. That said 1st coordinator in the SEC averaging 40+ is great. When we are on nobody can beat us, nobody!

    A!!

    B-.

    That said, it is sometimes unfair to attribute perceived failings to the OC, when there could certainly be lapses by players. I think it is a mixture of both, but play calling seems predictable at times.

    Sometimes it's intended to be predictable, I think

    Re: Rate Doug Nussmeier at the halfway point

    I don't see how it can't be an A. Our playcalling is about as aggressive as I've seen in 20 years of watching the Crimson Tide. We attack the defense just as aggressive through the air as we do on the ground. We're not afraid to throw the ball down field. We force the defense to cover all parts of the field. He gets an A in my book.

    Re: Rate Doug Nussmeier at the halfway point

    One thing I heard early about Nuss is that all receivers are "live," meaning AJ can throw to anyone, whereas, in CJM's offense, only one receiver, other than the dumpoff, was really live, with the others being decoys. Had I heard it from anyone else, I would have laughed. After watching the passing offense this year, I'm inclined to think there's something to it. Whether what I was told was an exaggeration, or they trust AJ more or not, I don't know. I do know that, given time, the ball's going out to secondary receivers more often...

    41 point a game. 90+% red zone. Outscoring opponents by 30+ points a game.

    He gets an A+ in my book.
