You’re just joking, right? Love does not operate receiver’s hands.

You guys, haha. We have so damn many drops! On top of that, everyone is basing his results from last year to this year. We've played way better teams this year! And again, he can't throw and catch.

Yeah, I chalk it up to far inferior receivers and a questionable offensive line. Those were two of or strengths last year.

I spent most of my time at the game focusing on our receivers and they really struggled to get open. On a significant number of plays love had no good option to throw to and had to run or try and make something happen

Not sure if our receivers aren’t as skilled at getting open or our play design isn’t as good or our OL isn’t as reliable and love doesn’t trust the protection but overall there just aren’t a lot of places to throw it

Compared to last year guys caught the ball with space a lot and our yac seemed pretty good. This year that hasn’t been the case. Take the screen to bright early in the game. Had it blocked well and made a guy miss but it got about 12 yards. Those plays last year seemed to provide huge chunks

Love definitely isn’t playing well but there are a host of issues with this offense that the backup QB is not going to solve

13-31 on Saturday and less than 50% completion % over the last three games. The receivers aren't dropping that many balls.

That said, there is more wrong with the offense than just Love.

Three things, not sure which order:

1) our new OC is not creative and not good IMO
2) our receivers drop too many balls, run poor routes.
3) our offensive line is below average. Love isn’t comfortable in the pocket, ever.

Columbi as good as he might be, would fair no better.

Bad game by both receivers and QB. Lots of dropped balls, lots of poorly thrown balls. TD to INT ratio now at 7 TD to 9 INT. QBR = 41.8 for 108 in the nation. It's actually a wonder we won by so many points and are 4-2 on the year.

Love is a great QB. I'm just waiting for him to return to form...

On most plays Love was getting less than 2.5 seconds to get rid of the ball. Even on the plays he had better protection he was getting rid of it around 3-3.5 seconds as if he was anticipating his protection wasn’t going to last much longer. The point being our receivers aren’t always able to get open or get where they’re supposed to be in that time.

I also think it’s time to scrap the go fast go hard offense. We don’t have the personnel or the OC to pull it off this year. It’s leading to far too many 3 and outs or short drives.

Agree with removing the fast offense. Might as well use some clock and then go 3 and out.

ColOmbi. This board refuses to spell names correctly. We just got done with four years of Kent “Meyers” and are back to struggling with Gary “Anderson.”

Surprised no one has tried David Wouldward or Jordon Luv.

That would require implementation of a real run game and formations to run it on the fly. Right now the TRO game variants are it as far the run games go. It's not going fast that is the problem but also how many times the run game puts the Aggies behind the sticks. That won't change simply by slowing it down.

But in the sense of adding some power and extra blocking to the backfield, cut down the 4-5 receiver patterns, implement play action, and give Love time to hit guys downfield and gain some confidence. It seems necessary at this point.

The aggies online is just too epleted to protect with only 5 or 6 and teams are keying on our back in the RPO and willing to let Love be the runner knowing that even if he gets a few 1st downs they will get open field hits on him.

Love has to be willing to take the check down. So many times they dropped eight into coverage and he forced things. It’s why he had room to run last night. I agree that the offense isn’t winning enough on early downs and getting into too many 3rd and longs. Slowing down the tempo isn’t going to fix an execution problem.

Last season we had a veteran O line, Tarver, Green, Dax, and a NFL running back, the replacements are not nearly as good in fact receivers are at best average . Plus the schedule is much tougher. When you lose 9 starters things like this can happen.

Love is not having a great year much of the problem is those players around him.

The problems are not merely on Love. Receivers and line have been inconsistent as well - far too many passes are dropped and far too many open receivers are missed. The offensive scheme appears to be be really unimaginative. But the QB is completing less than 50 percent over the last three games and overall has a negative td to int ratio halfway through the season. That's a problem.

I think the run game has really struggled in the 1st half of games this year. I can't count the number of times we had 2nd and 9 or 2nd and 8 after the rpo run between the tackles. When it seems like that is 98% of our 1st down plays, the only variable is whether the online can beat the other teams front 7 because everyone knows what the play is. I feel some more variety in the run game would at least make the defense have to think about what play we are going to run.

But it doesn't help either on 2nd down when receivers drop balls that hit them in the hands for an entire quarter..... :noidea:

Even last year, Love threw some passes behind or a bit ahead of the guys, its just they usually caught it or put themselves in position to make a catch. Tarver was especially good at this when he was in the endzone. This year, it seems like it has to be right on the money for a guy to catch it. If guys had caught half of the ones that were considered "drops," Love would have been more like 17 or 18 for 31 and over 50%. Not saying Love is playing anywhere near outstanding, but I don't think Colombi would do any better, especially with the play calling and time the QB has to throw the ball.

The answer isn't Colombi. He is good enough but this is a whole offense issue starting with a coordinator running an RPO spread scheme he isn't experienced with and a head coach who doesn't believe in it particularly after Loves picks in the opener.

The next issue is a new o-line that is beat up, loss of an NFL RB and particularly a go to guy who out positioned and out physicaled defenders like Tarver.

Yes I watched last night and there certainly weren't 10 drops. Five at the most. Many that were classified as drops were passes thrown behind the receiver.

Guys we’re diving to catch slants, curls, and out patterns. Those aren’t drops. I need to rewatch the game, but I’d be surprised if we dropped more than 5 balls.

Also, what is the strategy behind rolling Love out of the pocket and then not having any receivers running routes on the same side? Ridiculous. He can’t start to take off, but the linebacker will closes quickly and kill him. This seemed to happen multiple times. I’m fine with some bootleg/option but the play has to have receivers that Love can throw to without throwing across his body.
