    the playbook

    the QB's

    the WR's

    BLAME THE PLAYCALLER!!

    Until we get rid of Crowton, expect this kind of play, period. He has done this to offenses wherever he goes.

    The D got run on, but kept points off the board. With the starting field position we had and lack of D we faced, this loss is all on Crowton.

    They brought the house ever 3rd and long, and we did nothing to offset it the whole second half. The screen is obviously not in the "shrunken" playbook.

    You can nit pick things all you want, but it begins and ends with Crowton.

    you can't just blame Crowton. Crowton isn't dropping passes left and right. Crowton isn't throwing uncatchable balls.

    But he does deserve some of the blame for pitiful situational playcalling.

    What sense is there in blaming any one person? The team lost today, and the team will get back to work on Monday with the hopes of beating Alabama.

    It's nobody's fault, just a bitter loss against a good football team, on the road.

    All of those things are symptoms of the larger problem, which is why you blame Crowton.

    Should not the offense just be better in general with good OC. What other job can you get that is secure even though you are demonstrably NOT actually doing a good job. The coaches can't stop the drops on the field, but the offense simply seems ill-prepared in general. It seems to me like Crowton has had enough time to get the offense somewhere above the #100 mark.

    I know people that were BYU and Duck fans when he was at those stops... I remember them all saying the same thing, then we got him. My Oregon buddy told me the same thing, we'd love him the first season then hate every year after. If the staff and upper office can not see it then there's problems at higher levels.

    That is an easy answer. YES!!! Look at the D both scheme and individuals before and with Chavis. Cutrera Riley & Shep performed at best as average LBs under Malveto. In Chavis' first year the change was remarkable (Cutrera & Riley made NFL squads). The players improved their performance and the D played together and was ranked much higher with basically the same personel.
    It could happen with a competant OC & QB coach. Even JL & JJ could be decent with a good coach.I have & will defend Miles but he does need to change OCs & line coaches. We have the tools they need to be sharpened and used properly.

    Clearly something has to give in the offseason. It should be damn near criminal to sit on this kind of talent and be an offensive bottom-dweller in the SEC. For 2 straight years. Auburn recognized last year they had no QB options and committed to recruiting the best JC player they could find. After 3 years we have 2 QBs playing at the level of redshirt freshmen. There is something very seriously wrong with that picture, and the evidence pointing to Crowton is overwhelming.
