Weapons are only useful if... - scottiep12 - 10-03-2010 02:50 PM

There is a revolution under way on the offensive side of the ball and it's fun to watch.

Gamebreaker: Chadd Spann
Big Pounding back: Bell
Scat Back with big play potential: Hopkins
Good sized receivers that are vertical threats: Moore, Cox and Clark
Explosive receiver with big play capability: Palmer
Dual Threat QB: Harnish

And you still have a great hands guy in Ashford, explosive slot guy in Daniels and a pretty good kick returner and dependable back in Crider that are honorable mention.

Funny though how some of these guys have been around a while? Clearly having a QB with confidence and some ability is the catalyst, when he's firing on all cylinders it's apparent that we do have the horses to compete.

Simple formula....good QB=good MAC team

Where's Anthony Johnson and his big vertical leap? Has he even played this season? His fellow Texas counter-part Martel Moore has been getting a lot of playing time.

..Not enough room...... The little throwing we have had there is not much to spread around yet. I have been impressed with how well are WRs have blocked.

Honestly, who cares? Who is he better then?

Our rebuilt OLINE deserves a ton of credit too. The QB and skill players can not be effective without a solid OLINE and it was a big question coming into the season.

It's kind of like Landon Cox and Nathan Palmer. Cox played as a true freshman, but NaPalm had to redshirt because he was a very raw athlete. Same with A. Johnson. He'll find his way to the field eventually, but I'm surprised we haven't seen him out there on special teams yet.
