So, Young should be signing this month?
Glad he proved your doubts wrong. Not saying that in an attacking way, I know in reality you are also. I could understand before the game your doubts when I read them. I believed he was better than you were saying but what I did not know was how he was going to respond when he got hit in the mouth and when adversity came.
That's a stretch I think. Mack will be the first to say the interceptions where his fault. But the ability to keep fighting back was unlike anything I have ever seen from any QB ever. Also, I felt like there was no reason for us to not run the ball when we got inside their 5. Their D was just about toast & just getting in the Big Guys with Najee back there made much more sense to me. I mean why not. I guess hindsite is 20/20.
Oh, i totally agree Sark's call did not do Mac Jones any favors but he made the choice to just throw it up at Najee, not Sark. He should've taken the sack there, inexperience and bad decision all in one was a perfect storm of terrible decisions from coaching on down.
Agree on this... The first pick was his worse throw. The 2nd he was under some duress which contributed to the pick although experience would show him he should hang on to the ball and just take the sack or sling it up into the stands. Easy to say here in the comfort if my living room with the results in my rear view mirror....
I don't blame the 2nd pick on Mac... At all.
I agree with you 1000% here. I'm pretty sure half of the interceptions Tua threw were off his back foot and bad decisions. No one is impervious to the reality that we are humans and make mistakes, especially in a split second. Can't even express how we all could look into each others daily lives and find hundreds and probably thousands of examples of this happening to ourselves.
I agree. I saw the second pick as Mac's inexperience showing on that particular circumstance. Getting heat from an unblocked defender on the goal line, single coverage on Najee...he tried to make a play when he should have thrown it away (or to a spot that only Najee had the chance to catch it). Definitely a learning experience for Mac on that play.
I don't agree that Sark just called an "ok" game. I've been as hard on Sark as anyone but he emptied every round in the chamber at Auburn. Reverses, flea flickers, end arounds, different versions of the Wildcat that we hadn't seen yet, everything. It didn't all work but the main reason for it was making Auburn be aware of everything, which made life easier for Mac. Just like Mac is gonna be remembered for his two bad plays more than the 25 other great ones, Sark is probably going to be remembered for the one iffy call. The naked bootleg on the 2-yard line with first-and-goal was unnecessary and I think he just outthought himself. Najee was not going to be stopped if you ran at them four straight times. Period.
I had a co worker yesterday to come into my gym and scream out some obscenities about the game. Not really, but she’s a Barner, so same difference. I said something along the lines of always being little brother. I sent her an email once I got the class calmed down and I told her that 2 good things had come from. Saturday’s game. 1) I only have to plan for 1 bowl game this year like y’all always do. 2) They were now stuck with their booger picking and booger eating Coach for at least another year. Crickets!!!
