My expectations? 100% effort, major improvement in fundamentals, at least a 50-60% decrease in TO's. (preferred 100%, but that's nearly impossible)
I want to see the d line coming off the ball like the last 2 drives against akron and UConn. Now that we see they CAN do it, they SHOULD do it! Hell just a 50% bump in effort would make a huge difference from where we have been.
I wanna see some press coverage/B&R from the boundry back, countess should be our half the field guy this game.
I wanna see fitz get relieved anywhere from 1/4-6 carries. (if hes hot, make it 1/8+)...if not, let rawls, or green get a touch, maybe they light the spark finally for our run game. If they stay hot, reverse the touch ratio in their favor, reward good play. (ya know, motivation)
I wanna see our receivers breaking routes and helping our QB out more consistently then they have been doing. Funchess should always be DG safety valve, he should be looking out for DG better imo. You need a big, athletic target that can jump for balls that were thrown in a hurry, he should be that guy.
I wanna see chesson play more physical off the line, and throughout the routes. He may not burn backs with speed, but hes got some good size to his advantage. He should be at MININUM a mid field threat, I understand not being a deep threat as of yet, but lets get him on some 20+ yd route attempts. (if he has time from pressure) 3-4 attempts this game.
I wanna see our oline push push push!!! Its ok to miss a block or 2,3 a game....Nobody is perfect. I wanna see miller making better calls for protection, and Lewan/schofield making sure their guards understand the play and Lewan overruling ANY calls he thinks are bad from Miller. Dumb it down if necessary, "hey, block the 3 tech, and watch the LBs angle" Something like that, I was not an oline, I don't know their lingo.
I wanna see Hoke with a head set on, that's an expectation of mine. I just don't understand that from him. Does he not care to hear what Al sees from up top? I just dunno about that still.
I want to see a win, a big win actually......But if its a loss because of anything less than 100% effort, then I will be a pissed off fan, 4 weeks in a row. Damn im moody! time for a vicodin.
