That’s a fact, Jack.10/11/2014 at 7:52 PM #58778redcanineParticipant
I watched waaay too much of this f°*<ing game.10/11/2014 at 7:54 PM #58779easParticipant
0-11 is hard to swallow. Again, 0-16 would be misery…wait 0-11 feels like misery already.10/11/2014 at 7:57 PM #58780gopack 17Participant
The Defense is just flat out PUTRID…..nothing to debate on that end. A lot of
chatter about DD being over his head and beginning to think there is some substance to that issue. He may have to make some wholesale changes or he may loose the Pack Natioan all together. I know we are rebuilding but this is somewhat pathetic. Have the talent on the field just can’t execute.10/11/2014 at 7:58 PM #58781redcanineParticipant
Our next dose of Pack football will be Mark Thomas bobble-heading the Louisville preview. Can’t Wait!!10/11/2014 at 8:00 PM #58782GowolvesParticipant
GP17, there is no talent on the defense side of the ball I don’t care what anyone says. At least he can recruit in the manner of, “Come here and you will play immediately”.10/11/2014 at 8:01 PM #58783WolfanaticParticipant
We got out-coached..They figured out how to stop our offense long before we began to figure out how to stop their’s, and then the turnovers started. Brissett’s worst game.
Observations: Defensively, we don’t swarm to the ball. We lolly-gag and hope that someone else makes the tackle. We are not very good at tackling (save the TT hit). We have good athletes in the secondary, but we don’t have a leader. No Eric Weddle to hold it together, and keep it tight back there. Manny Fernandez has potential, but he is still learning. He hasn’t tasted blood, yet. He will. I can’t wait. Outside of a learning-on-the-job Manny,linebacker is our Achilles heal. I had a feeling that the helmets would help, not.10/11/2014 at 8:10 PM #58785

0-11.10/11/2014 at 8:12 PM #58787GowolvesParticipant
This was supposed to be the game where we could tell what this team is made of. I have to say it was not surprising. Disappointing but not surprising. This team has no heart on defense. I don’t think I have seen more arm tackling and players completly in the wrong place. Add to the fact there is no talent whatsoever. This will be a long season and DD will have to change coordinators in the offseason. This may sound crazy but bring Amato back as DC. As long he understands the chain of command and accepts it. I thought we had one more win but after seeing other teams play today we will be lucky to win one more! I am dead f*cking serious!10/11/2014 at 8:19 PM #58788pakfanistanParticipant
Can anybody remember what Doeren’s record in conference is? I can’t remember, and I’m too lazy to look it up. It can’t be good.10/11/2014 at 8:21 PM #58789
OUT COACHED! 2 weeks in a row.
Dear Dave Doeren – RETHINK EVERYTHING . . . And look to Dabo for a template – fire all your coordinators!
Working hard for one week to game plan doesn’t do it – you have to work hard every week!!!10/11/2014 at 8:24 PM #58790Virginia WolfParticipant
Well folks, it’s looking like a 4 win and 8 losses year!!! I was afraid of this. I don’t think we can even beat Wake Forest now. Joining others in saying, “Wait until next year!”10/11/2014 at 8:29 PM #58791john of spartaParticipant
bottom line: it’s not a DD thing, it’s a DY thing.10/11/2014 at 8:30 PM #58792
No- wrong – not DY10/11/2014 at 8:31 PM #58793pakfanistanParticipant
bottom line: it’s not a DD thing, it’s a DY thing.
This thing goes all the way to the top.
It’s the illuminati.10/11/2014 at 8:36 PM #58794
Whatever – 2 bad game plans and prep is a DY thing?
I will have another on you.
Lots of games left – just need to see a plan, and multiple contingencies in reaction – 2nd week in a row it hasn’t happened.10/11/2014 at 8:38 PM #58795Avid109Participant
This game illustrates that Huxtable needs to go. We’re seeing Archer Part II.
A bigger question mark is with the offense. After starting out aggressive, they slowed down and looked very tentative. Once they’re behind by a couple of scores, they seem to come unglued.
Even if the team is loaded up with younger players, by this point in the season they ought to know what they’re doing.10/11/2014 at 8:40 PM #58796rthomas44Participant
I was ok until I saw the QB throw the ball backwards!! I am now very glad I didn’t buy tickets this year.10/11/2014 at 8:41 PM #58797PackofMacParticipant
Same old crap, same old fu*king crap. we are absolutely horrible yet again. Can’t wait for basketball to be comparatively disappointed. the only thing that could make this right is for Dave and Debbie to stare at a half empty carter finley for the rest of the year.10/11/2014 at 8:42 PM #58798
I am disappointed per my comments.
Struggle as I think DD is very, very good – but realize in a full week his energy is limited . . . He HAS to have better lieutenants.
Overall by year 3 or 4 of course they win with good talent – but game planning overall is poor and won’t improve.10/11/2014 at 9:49 PM #58803AdventurooParticipant
Some views from the cheap LTR’s in the upper deck….
This game and the handling of the “Dangerous Lightning” was just the beginning of a total fiasco….
We left and decided to wait out the weather in the PNC. I was at CF when the Tornadoes came to town and drove through some wicked weather and took shelter at my daughters rather than going home….which would have put me in the path of the tornadoes…..so I am a bit more cautious and less macho this time….especially with my GS with me.
Even saw Greg Fischel run in and take shelter….
SO, the PNC folks said…..Game is going to start….this was about 6:05 and the Radio or maybe here had said that the Lightning delay would be over at 6:10. So me and a couple of thousand folks started walking back over. All the Raleigh PD in their green slickers were standing there. Then one of them gets on the BUll Horn and tells us….we are going to “sweep” the CF entrance and that if we do NOT disperse, we will be “arrested”. SO, they start walking….only thing missing was their batons and shields. THEN we, like sheep, walk back to the PNC. This time, the RPD is there. We can NOT mill around outside. TOO dangerous. Again the leader has a bull horn and we are herded back inside. Was in the VIP entrance and the guy said….JumboTron has ESPN and the PA as Radio….so we went in….we had barely made it to an open road of seats when the “Supervisor” on a Bull Horn says…..GAME STARTING….Please leave.
I have the greatest respect for LEO….but these folks were about as disorganized as our defense. God save us if there had been an Ebola outbreak and they were trying to quarantine us.
OK….back in CF, we found that two of our party had “squatter’s” rights to the front row of the 45. So, we went down there and stood and yelled. We could also reach over and literally touch the players. I NOW have a different perspective on Coach D and Brissett.
Coach D is enthusiastic when a player makes a GOOD play and equally irritated when he messes up….and heaps praise as well as criticism on players as they come off the field.
We watched the game from mid 3rd Quarter until the ugly end. The attitude, as the clock ticked, deteriorated. There was little enthusiasm for the defense. It was obvious in the body language. Read the comments on the N&O….they mirror what I witnessed.
BUT, what I also saw was Jacoby up front and personal. He mainly sat by himself and some players would try to “get him to perk up”. He was intense….and you could see the pain in his face. During the last 5 minutes….when BC last scored, he got up off the bench and was almost in tears. One of our party said that it looked like someone just killed his pet cat. (I like cats….but not inside) He really did wear his emotions on his sleeve. He was trying to do his best Philip and Russell imitation….but his supporting cast did NOT help. It was obvious, when you are at eye level with the field that our OL was totally outmatched and that Jacoby was fighting for his life. He may have made some mental (and physical) mistakes….but make no bones about it….he was hurting….
So, I was disappointed, as we all are. We played well for about 1 – 2 quarters….it almost seemed like the high humidity was in our favor as the Yank’s from Bean Town did NOT like CF’s Heat. Then the rain came and it seemed to melt us….10/11/2014 at 10:05 PM #58804
BC had to deal with the delay and rain, too. This, a team who’s very own coach suggested they were weak on the road. I mean, at some point, you have to win one. The excuses are growing old, guys. Just win a freaking conference game.10/11/2014 at 10:36 PM #58805mak4dpakParticipant
Defense is absolutely pathetic! What looked to be a shootout changed when their defense made adjustments, and our defense kept playing the same sorry crap, and we got ran over. One would think this far into the season the defense would have learned something, but no change. Huxtable needs to go as the DC. The defense is a joke! Another long season, and possibly another perfect conference record.10/11/2014 at 11:04 PM #58806tangogr33nParticipant
Like the Clempsun game, JB was on the run almost every play. The line either folds or is penetrated constantly forcing him to move and try to make plays on the run. I’m afraid he is losing his faith in the line as sometimes he even leaves the pocket prematurely and runs into pressure.10/11/2014 at 11:16 PM #58807choppack1Participant
Listened to post game PC, don’t like him throwing players under bus which is what I heard. “Just not enough talent.” I am not saying that is not true, but geez.
Oh well. You never want to tell someone “trust me. I know what I am doing.” That’s where dd is. However, I am pulling for him and I hope recruiting keeps on going well.
Thank heavens for that icky woods commercial.
