    A 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!

    At 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."

    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.
