Downfield Bombs in the passing game

Few questions- Should we just expect this moving forward? Does it seem like more in the last 2 big games bc our pass rush hasn’t been as strong? Our best 2 corners on paper (AJ last year and DK this year) got beat a lot under these schemes.

It appeared to me that coach V abandoned the blitz in the OSU game with the except 2 or 3 times. He usually uses that a lot more than that. The few times he did use it we either sacked Fields or forced him to run. By halftime Fields couldn’t run. I don’t know if it was the worry of their run game or something else. But the bombs that Fields threw he had all day to wait until the receiver was past the Safeties.

I’m assuming that the holding on every-single-play is not accounted for in your assessment. Or the fact that Williams and Olave will be first round receivers. Not to mention OSUs experience versus the youth of this team. If anything, I personally think we over achieved. Clemson should be the more experienced team next year overall with a very talented young qb that has been in the fire. Y’all negative Nellys need to lighten up. Nobody wins them all.

So are you saying you didn’t see the blatant holds right in front of the officials or what? I believe we lose either way but you can’t wonder how the downfield passing was so successful with all day to throw without acknowledging “why” he had all day to throw. It’s a fact; not excuse. But there again, very experienced oline versus a bunch of young bucks that will be really, really good!! Go Tigers!

not at all.completely agree with you.kept yelling the entire game about the osu o-line holding and fields having all night to find receivers.don't you find it funny that the domers supposedly had one of the best,if not the BEST o-line,and we had no trouble getting to book all night in the 2d game.then against osu there's suddenly no pressure on the qb at all?

I have accepted the fact that offensive holding will not be called in the SEC. The officials (I believe from the Big 12) didn't call it in our game vs. OSU. It would seem that we should be more liberal with the use of hands by our OL when officials are unwilling to call holding. On defense, it will be more difficult to sack the opposing QB. Perhaps we rush 4 and play pass defense with 7 in this instance. These are just my thoughts. I'll leave it to BV to run our defense.
