FOOTBALL: More on Samford

Not much more, but here’s a bit with Pat Sullivan talking about his Bulldogs. It’s hard to get a read on a team in a 62-0 win, but he believes his team showed improvement against an over-matched opponent. Faulkner was a late addition to the Samford schedule.

    PA, what was ur read on our defense saturday? The blitz package was very readable to me. The QB just threw to day Hot receiver all day. Hopefully we can work on not showing the blitz so early before the snap. I knew where the ball was going before the snap on every third down!!!

    Hopefully with the D-line getting healthy, we can get more pressure with our front four… So we don’t have to blitz our safeties & CB’s so much smh… I’m still seeing frist down WAKE lol. Any decent QB could make those reads! Only gets tougher from here on out, after this weekend!!!

    My congrats to the BigDraws family on their new addition. God Bless and best wishes.

    Thanks JB. Been outta pocket for a few days. The lil bundle of joy is at home and her and mom are doing fine. Sister is glad to have a playmate too.

    I concur that the blitzes were underdisguised, and I am also unsure that with a secondary that struggles like ours we should even be blitzing dbs at all–certainly not as freely as it seems like we are. In any case, TrueReb is right on that we need more pressure from the front four. Hopefully with more health this will happen.

    On the other hand, TrueReb, I’m not sure that “any decent quarterback could make those reads.” It’s one thing to make a read while playing a video game, watching film, or a live game in HD . . . and quite another to make it with a couple thousand pounds of defenders attempting to smash you. I think Skinner deserves a lot of credit for his performance against us, and I stand by my previous comment elsewhere that I do not think we will face a quarterback like him the rest of the year (unless the sky opens up and a bright light shines on us, and we end up in the SEC championship game facing Georgia).

    I think it takes at least a “pretty good” quarterback to make those reads. So I guess my question is, why did we not call of the dogs and play fuller coverages anywhere except the end of the game–the time when it seemed like a better idea to pressure and force quicker sideline throws? (sorry to live in the past so much, I was just baffled by this because I really respect Nix)

    Draws, you are a good man and have a great family. Hope that y’all can get out now and do some tailgating and cheer on your team, the dawgs. It would be amazing if they pulled an upset this week-end over Auburn and “Tubby”.
