Although I have not changed my thoughts about offensive miscues (turnovers and penalties) and LB/DB inexperience being the hallmarks of last night's suckfest of a win, I have a follow-on thought. All teams, to some degree, have troubles with penalties and turnovers. Florida, for instance, was the most penalized team in the NCAA (I think, SEC for sure) when they won the 2005 BCS Crystal Football. LSU had tons of penalties in 2007, although their turnover margin was sa-weet. Other teams have QBs who throw interceptions at a rate almost equal to their TDs. Yet many of these teams don't have second halves like LSU did last night. And I think the reason might be that they have a QB who can fairly consistently get them out of jams. JJ showed that, with patience and protection, he can hit RR in stride for a 50 yard TD strike. He can also scramble pretty well. But he's not good at 3rd and long. Because he's not good at delivering when the other team expects what he's about to do - i.e. 3rd and long. He has happy feet in the pocket, and he is still late seeing the play develop. NITPICK ALERT: Randle had to slow down a bit to catch the ball in the end zone because Jefferson didn't throw it until Randle had separated from the DB - not AS he was SEPARATING from the DB. The point is, I don't think JJ is seeing the play develop until it's obvious. And that means he's waiting too long, and it also means he won't take risks and throw based on what's ABOUT to happen - he waits to see if it's GOING to happen. Last night, LSU was 1-6 in 3rd and 6 or more passing situations. The one conversion was the TD pass to Shepard. Conversely, LSU was 7 for 9, including a 50 yard TD to RR, on first down passes. JJ has got to be able to deliver when everyone in the stadium knows EXACTLY what he's about to do. He has to be able to do it anyway. At least some of the time. 1 out of 6 times won't cut it. I think he's getting better. I see more confidence, I see better pocket presence - though he still has happy feet. Not there yet, though.
