My sentiments exactly. Although I am very pleased with the result, I expected total domination by both front line, especially against a Mac team. Yes, we did get our yards rushing and we got into the backfield on D. In my head, it played out much more dramatic before the game.
I was concerned about seeing Devon force the ball to covered receivers in practice. I hope this is not a trend. I'll take an incompletion over a pick any day of the week. Against quality opponents, passing to covered receivers can haunt us.
As much as I love the athletic ability of Denard and Devin, living on the edge is not where I want to be again. I want the power game as advertised where our 2nd option at RB gets 100 yards too. Where our opponent has to stop them to force us to pass. Where we are eating up the clock and wearing down defenses.
On D, I would like to have QB's know before hand that they will be bruised up and throw more completions to UM DB's than to teammates. I want no holes for RB's to exploit. I want 3 and outs every series.
Is wanting to win 70 to nill every game an unreasonable request?
Again, I was pleased with our boys. I am just nervous about a few things. Go Blue!
