So far, all I've been impressed with is Morris' throwing mechanics have been revised, he looked like Tebow when he would wind up his throws, now it looks a lot quicker in his release and motion.

I know the spring game doesn't really show much but the defense definitely has a leg up.  Offense is doing absolutely nothing.

Marcus Ray called the scrimmage, that dude has ballooned since his playing days, guy is HUGE. He said that '97 team had 30 guys play in the NFL...now that's depth!

Gardner threw an INT on the 1st play of the scrimmage.

D dominated today.

DL is crushed the OL today.

Canteen looked awesome....dude caught a nice crossing pass from Gardner that ended up going for 40yds. He's got wheels. He needs to keep hitting the weight room...but he could be our 3rd WR in the fall. Stretches the D.

Go Blue!!

Thought the defense looked pretty solid & expect them to be very good in 2014.
 
Thought Hayes, Canteen & Chesson stood out on offense but it remains a major work in progress, not surprisingly.
 
Five months until it gets real...LOTS of work to be done but confident we can do it.

Wouldn't look into anything on offense. Coaches said before the scrimmage that they weren't going to show anything on offense, and they didnt. Very vanilla. The defense looks to be a lot more aggressive. More blitzing, and the corners were playing tight on the WRs.

I was there, and sadly, I was fairly unimpressed with anyone other than Canteen. Once the scrimmage went live, I saw dropped passes, penalties, a minimal running game (weren't we told we were going to two backs more frequently?), confusion with receivers' routes and positioning.  The defense looked ok. There was but one throw downfield, so I can't say if 2014 will be like 2013 with respect to the defensive backs getting burned on a regular basis.
 
My overall opinion- my kids loved the pretzels more than the scrimmage itself. I think I may have as well. Meh.

The OL did not get much of a push, but our DL looked good...the pass protection was worse than last season. It was awful. WOW! Gardner or Morris could have been sacked on 80% of passing plays if the D was allowed to hit the QB's.

Hoke and Nuss say that 85-90% of the offense is in...I sure hope today they only showed 5-10% of it...

Go Blue!!

I realize they may not have shown anything on offense...but that doesn't also mean you can't go out there and try an block somebody, make a good throw or catch a pass, does it? We looked sh*tty even with our base O, that can't be what Nuss was looking for today.

Gardner's confidence went into the tank after the 1st play and then he started forcing throws to Funchess, his safety blanket, the rest of the day....it was only a spring scrimmage, he's better than that and has played enough games that he should be able to put that sh*t behind him, get his head on straight and move on. We have some talent at WR this year...question is whether it not our OL can hold guys long enough to have whoever is in the pocket to get them the ball.

Go Blue!!

LMAO.............I expected the defense to dominate the "game," but that was sort of embarrassing.
