Default 247 thinks highly of our offense this season

They ranked us number 9 in the best qb, rb , wr trifecta in the nation. That's pretty darn good.

That is why I shake my head when I hear people say we can have a better team and still only win 6.

The O has been the problem for the last three years. I know, we set a single season passing record with Dylan Thompson in 2014. But we also had issues running the ball and sustaining drives. And we lost three games when all we had to do in the Fourth Quarter was get a single First Down - in either of two possessions. And 2015 and 2016 - in particular, the first half of 2016 - was brutal.

This year we have quality at QB (who will only get better), WRs (with depth), TE (with depth), and RBs (with depth). And a solid O Line.

I think the D will be better - If I had to bet, I would say D Line about the same, but improvement at LB and DB. But even if it is the same, the D should put up much better numbers simply because the O can move the ball effectively and keep the D off the field.

Other teams can improve too. I'm not disagreeing with your overall assessment by the way.

I'm with you Ace. I just don't see the brutal schedule everyone else does. There are several teams with question marks just like us.

Default Re: 247 thinks highly of our offense this season

After 2014 and the debacle that was the ATM game, seriously our season ended once we made Kenny Trill a thing and pundits were sending Sumlin to the NFL, I became more pragmatic w my preseason outlooks. With that being said our division is literally dog ��. Florida and tenn lost a lot, UK lost their best back (not mention we lost on the road w our awesome combo of ortmac), Vandy is vandy, and mizzou is now in constant rebuild mode with no relief. That leaves us and uga (not counting out gaytors but they lost a lot brutal schedule and no qb), uga probably had more talent on d and rb, but everyone outside of Athens has Bentley over Eason (anyone who doesn't is fake news). All you need is a qb, look at Clemson (I'm not comparing Bentley to Watson or saying that he'll be as good, just pointing out they went from winning 8 games to the playoffs twice on the back of qb play). I don't think we'll win the SEC, but I def think we can and should winn8-10 games.

Our schedule looks tougher than normal - NCST (who should have beaten the Taters last season), @A&M (who has done well in the first half of the past few seasons), @UGag in November instead of September when they're guaranteed at least 2 suspensions of key players, Arky, and Wofford with that [censored] triple-option. But I don't see a reason at the moment why we can't contend for the East, as down as it is. Hell, the game against UGag, if the chips fall properly, could be for the East.

Welcome to Year One. Prepare your vehicle of choice, and get ready to buckle up... (I know it's CWM's second season but I think you know where I'm coming from.)

Still questions in both trenches, depth at LB, safety, and special teams. No one has disputed our skill positions look strong but this is still a team full of question marks and the schedule did get harder. We traded Miss St for Arkansas, UMass for LaTech, and ECU for NCST on a neutral venue instead of at home. All 3 of those games are more difficult so yes being better and improving the win total are not necessarily 2 things that go hand in hand this season because the schedule is more difficult.

Default Re: 247 thinks highly of our offense this season

Even though it's still only May, I'm glad we have a defensive minded coach that knows he has a pretty good offense and a questionable defense. He knows he has about 4 months to get his defense stronger, faster and in football shape and ready to bring it come fall practice.
I'm really excited about this year. I know we'll lose some but not without a fight. I really don't see Coach Boom ever allowing another 56-7 beat down again. Unless it's his guys delivering the beat down.

Yeah, people forget that in 2014, even with how bad or D was that our O could have sewn up 3 games just by picking up a first down. I may not recall correctly, but I think a couple of those times we barely picked up any yards at all. There was some horrible play calling as well. So, yeah, the D was abysmal, but when given the chance to salt away a few wins, the O came up short as well. That puts us at 9 regular season wins with a shot at 10 in the bowl game. It's possible the recruiting would have looked vastly different. But...

Agree. I think we blew three double digit leads with less than 6 mins to go in the game. Missouri, Tenn, and KY. God those were terrible games to watch. Especially that Tenn game. When Wilds broke off the 70 yd TD run and Butch was red faced and going apesh*t I thought it was over. Still don't know how we lost that game.

You speak for true. We were close with UGA, and that was pre-Bentley. The game is in Athens and their RBs are the best this side of the NFL, but I like our backs and Smart is still in head coach learning mode.

Boom was 11-2 in Year Two at UF. Just sayin'.

And Clemson, UF and UT are all much worse, and Clemson and UT are at home. Sorry, the schedule is not harder.

I see your point on the D Line, but I hate the stereotypical "questions on the O Line" comment. What questions? We lose one starter and he was hardly a star, the other four starters are all back. One of last year's starters was hurt on the first play and he is back, 3 others that got starts were hurt during the year also. Lots of experience, returning starts, and, yes, talent. And they played much better than people realize - funny how the Offense and the O Line suddenly started clicking when we got Bentley, Deebo and Rico on the field.

I see your point on the D Line, but I hate the stereotypical "questions on the O Line" comment. What questions? We lose one starter and he was hardly a star, the other four starters are all back. One of last year's starters was hurt on the first play and he is back, 3 others that got starts were hurt during the year also. Lots of experience, returning starts, and, yes, talent. And they played much better than people realize - funny how the Offense and the O Line suddenly started clicking when we got Bentley, Deebo and Rico on the field.
Clemson got worse but they're still a legit top 10 team that we need to have a perfect game combined with them being off to win even at home. I agree that UF and UT are worse, I'd throw in A&M as a team that also took a hit but that gets cancelled out by going on the road and that's the case with UT as well. UGA should be better and it's on the road. Strictly when it comes to home/away our odd numbered years are harder than our even numbered years and we really ratcheted up the OOC schedule in a big way. There is no objective way to look at the schedule as a whole and say that it is worse or the same as last year's in difficulty.

What makes you think they are a legit top 10 team? That team could've and probably should've lost at least 3 games, and they lost 90% of their offense.

I mean be honest. They were one play, (literally one play) away from losing to auburn, Louisville, and nc st. They lost to pitt.

I'm not guaranteeing a win to Clemson, but I find it hard to believe their a top 10 team this season
