WON84A reasonable concern. But where we struggled really had more
to do with RECIEVERS being able to beat their defenders. Perhaps a big part of
that is getting better action out of the tight ends.We SHOULD be
able to put too many weapons on the field at the same time for a defense to be
able to perfectly defend them all, all the time. Whether we DO or not will go a
long way to making or breaking Riley as a quarterback.Cody has
proven that he will need double-teaming. Ross is coming along nicely. Falslev
really began to blossom. Questions: can a tight end (Matthews?) step up and do
we have a running back(s) that can catch the ball out of the backfield?
Consistently.Jake didn't look defenders off and he didn't
check down very well. Riley does both better.
Unfortunately I agree with motorbike. I love Nelson's competitiveness (I
think even most Ute fans do) but, I'm just not convinced he's going to
be able to beat the better defenses on the schedule.
This team is going to be in great shape this season. Loving the immense
attention. I always love how BYU does historically with a senior QB at the
helm. Ready for this season to start!
54-10At least Riley can take a hit if Cody misses his block.Nothing like biting your nails throughout the game wondering if your QB
will survive the first hit."We ain't got that kind of
problem down south here."17-14
He'll win the award if he is a good blocker for his running quarterback.
Does Ross Apo know?
Motorbike, your comment is not without merit, but I think you will be surprised
by Nelsons arm strength this year.
Cody is a special talent, a fantastic wide receiver.As for the award,
he'll have to be satisfied with being included on the preseason list
because he doesn't stand a chance to win it. No fault of his own, he simply
doesn't have the right quarterback throwing the ball.Before Coug fans
jump on me for that, I'm not saying Riley Nelson isn't a good
quarterback. He's just not the greatest passing threat to help a wide
receiver win a major award.
Congrats Cody, hopefully this season will be an even better one for you than
last years stellar one.
Great thing about Hoffman is that he seems to play his best in close/tough
games: 277 all-purpose yards against Central Florida, over 200 yards receiving
against OSU, big game against Tulsa in bowl game. He is definitely the best
option in long third down situations...
Cody is soooo reliable. Any qb would feel great having him on the field.
