I’ve watched episodes of locked up abroad that I’d rather experience myself than sit here through another 25 minutes of Joe Theismann. 

I'm on the Atlanta feed so I haven't had to endure that.

Also this was meant for the game thread but I lost track of where I was.

Oops.

You may get us both in trouble, the last thing I need is Jumbo to catch me taking another thread off topic.

Just to give a little perspective from one of the younger generation fans. Again, thank you for responding the way you did, it is much appreciated. 

 

Hey, I hear you man. I just turned 30. No glory years for me and I grew up experiencing the same Snyder/Vinny hell as my formative football experiences as well. Nightmarish. And I did it in Patriots country up here too lol.

Can we trade Williams for a LG. The Flowers experiment is about over. 

 

Really? I have missed a decent bit but when I watched he was playing pretty well. Disheartening to read that he’s struggled that badly. 😬

Completely missed a guy up the middle and also had a holding call on the goal line run by Guice. Guice scored of course and it was called back.

We had a decent run in the first, right through his lane, and he could have easily been called for a hold on it. Hopefully there are some positIves in there, it seems he’s won the job at lg.

I actually thought the run blocking overall seemed better, unless it was just Guice using his speed & vision to make good runs out of nothing?  The pass blocking however.......uh oh.

Guice looked better outside I thought. Up the middle there didn't seem like to be to many holes.

He was putrid in this game. So bad he managed to whiff a block I thought would be unwhiffable (Goal line TD that was called back - he had to turn and grab the tackle that just blasted by him untouched resulting in an obvious holding penalty. How the hell can you completely miss the guy you are supposed to block  in a bunched blocking scheme at the goal line)? He whiffed on two additional pass protections as well and got an additional holding penalty to go with those.

I remember yelling at the TV “come on ref how can you call a hold that fast?! That’s BS”... Then I saw the replay.

That’s entirely depressing. He had been the most pleasant surprise of the summer for me. Brutal.

Yikes. Perhaps I won’t watch this one. 😖

If every player had just 2 plays a game like that we'd look like a bad high school football team out there and never score a point.

Two drive killing plays and game killing plays. Had 7 points and it turned Into 3 because of him. I didn't know 2 bad plays a half was expectable.

I'm probably nitpicking but how many yards does Guice get if Scherff doesn't whiff on the block?

That wasn’t sponge worthy. BS had a few rough snaps early.

Flowers had three awful plays. One was the hold, the other two were turnstyle block attempts. That was three awful plays in just one half.

 

I don't care if he plays fine on 90% of the time, we're screwed if he makes these type of drive-changing mistakes every time he's out there. Our offense can be good, but we can't overcome this type of ****. 

 

We are cursed at LG. I hated Luavao but Flowers makes him look good. The grass isn't always greener...

Wes Martin is coming for that job unless Flowers really cleans up the situational issues. Like you said, 90% of the time is great but that 10% is an issue.

 

Doesn't help that Jay is obsessed with that bunched formation bull**** that defenses are really good at stopping unless you have an elite OL.

 

Spread → It → Out

They need to seriously consider bringing Lauvao back if he is even remotely healthy, the Flowers at guard experiment is a huge fail. Let's just use Lauvao until Martin comes along.

If you're waiting for Martin to come along, then we're going to get 2 games of Lauvao, and then the rest is going to be Flowers starting until Martin comes along. Lauvao will never be healthy enough. He is the Colt McCoy of our guards, mildly okay when he's healthy, always too injured to put that mildly okay performance to use.

We have a journeyman QB starting so why not just go ahead and play Martin? If there's ever a time to let him develop, it's NOW! We're expected to win 4-6 games and aren't putting our first-round QB in harm's way. Play the young guys...

the people who expect us to win 4-6 games are clueless.  We won seven last year, we did not step back
