    Absurd! That’s like quarterbacking and stuff.

    Hmmm. I guess we remember things differently.

    I’ve yet to see actual evidence that J’Mar is a bad teammate. No reports from those close to the program...just some frustrated WRs...never seen J’Mar act out when they have the drops.

    And, I watched the video, the “taunting” was incredibly mild.

    I think some of you guys just like to bust on the kid.

    Perhaps it’s easiee to think of changing the QB, but deep down, you SHOULD know that our problems are deeper than one guy. A guy who, apparently, is doing what he’s been coached to do.
    Look, I've defended J'Mar about as much as anyone on this board save the real sunshine pumpers, but even I was saying yesterday that he needed to sit a series or two. It just wasn't working. Give somebody else a chance to make a play. That was miserable to watch.

    Not sure what you think my point is...it’s not that J’Mar shouldn’t sit a series. It’s not that there aren’t valid criticisms against him either. Our scheme does him no favors and our coaches refuse to modify the scheme or play anybody else. We can’t run and our OL can’t handle a defense that knows what our coach is going to do.

    What’s the point? Our issues are complex.

    Re: Just how terrible are we?

    If the issues are complex, you start making corrections with the low hanging fruit, and that is QB.

    But, I don't agree they are that complex. Holtz has made simple things really hard, and a guy who has no business being a QB at this level, is clueless, and so things seem complex. But, it's not rocket science. Give Holtz & Smith one-way bus tickets to Bofunk, North Dakota, and put even an average OC in charge, and a halfway decent Division I QB in there, and bam! instant improvement. I guarantee it.

    So, which inept guy is supposed to fix it? The guy who created it or his boss who created Pawdawg’s favorite tailgate policy? Yeah...simple.

    No, I just got to the point, and that is football. Surely you didn't take the post literally...there may be a Bofunk, North Dakota, but no busses go there. I was just speaking on the football aspects. It really is not complicated. I wasn't getting into the politics of this....I hate politics and try to avoid it all I can.

    FWIW, the qb keeper was not the call. That was a read by J'Mar and his decision in real time to pull it and go end around.

    I assume this has been confirmed. If so, kudos to Smith. But, even if it were a called play, still kudos to Smith because he executed it to perfection. A+

    Interesting. I wish he would do it more often. It would help our running game and take pressure off our Oline.

    Not only the qb-keeper. The qb find a seam and run with power'er. Somebody needs to tell that dude he can actually run IF he does it with purpose.

    I suppose, if you take a complex topic and refuse to address the complex parts, what's left is simple.

    "We just need to bench J'Mar!"

    "And play one of the guys who couldn't beat him out?"

    "We just need to fire Holtz!"

    "You want TMac to hire his replacement?"

    It's all more complicated than most of us make it out to be. This one's for free: refusing to acknowledge complexity doesn't make you a straight shooter, it makes you a bullshitter.
