    Re: Did our d line let us down against tamu?

    i dont think the team was flat. our scheme on defense just did not matchup in our 1st meeting with them. it's one of those offenses you think you are ready until you actually see it. and they executed to perfection. I guarantee you next time will be much different. all in all we played well as a team. if you take away those completions by the WR's against a safety (which is scheme related) we win that game going away. the offensive line played well overall.

    The defense lost containment on JFF about three times in the 1st Qtr. He made big plays out of that. After adjusting it was 20-0. Then they scored just 9 points the remainder of the game. All the bounces went to them...all the bobbles, tips, etc. BAMA plays them again it's about 35-13

    Did our d line let us down against tamu?

    No way it was just the DLine fault. But I will say this, I've thought all season that we are not as dominate on the defensive front as we have been in the past.

    No way.

    We could benefit from a better pash rush, yes, but our guys played their butts off.

    I'm moving on.

Going into the game I always thought our lack of a four person pass rush would eventually get to us. Hopefully we get Nkemdiche this class. I think he'd start immediately or at least get major PT. Thank God Aaron Murray isn't a mobile qb and hopefully we learn not to blitz on max protect like we did at LSU.

    Thoughts?

    Agree with everything but the spurrier comment. I don't believe bamas defensive line is designed for elite pass rush. I'm Sue CNS would like more of a rush from the line, but in reality they're just gap fillers. The lbs are blitzers along with the secondary. Would I love to see a Clowney or two on the dline, YES, but we just don't have them.

    the game is over but to answer your question...yes, because Johnny had a lot of time to make decisions in the pocket.

    Re: Did our d line let us down against tamu?

    all that matters now is how they play going forward. I have the world of faith in them in run stuffing but it will be crucial for them to play better against Georgia. Aaron Murray is no scrub at all and could easily burn us if he has enough time. He may not be a scramble qb but he is mobile qb much like AJ.

    The moment I heard this comment come from Spurrier I said the team needs extra work to remove that clutter or we will lose a game. the next week we played LSU and it was starting to show its effect. It was in full strength after the comeback in the LSU game. By the time we played TA&M the damage had run its full course.
