Well, both of Georgia Tech’s wins have been full of exciting moments, even if they haven’t been the prettiest games you’ve ever seen.
Through two games, what concerns do you have and why?
I wouldn’t make too much out of Jonathan Dwyer not cracking 100 yards in a game yet. He could have done it against JSU. Clemson was determined to keep him from breaking a long one, keying all four defensive lineman and a linebacker on him almost every play. Five guys on one.
As I wrote, Nesbitt’s consistency, or consistency, with accuracy is something to discuss. He looked great against JSU, but was scattergunning passes through the first three quarters against Clemson. I asked him if the interception on his first pass caused him to really try and fire fastballs with the rest of his passes. He said no.
I could be wrong about this, but I think Tech’s quarterbacks have only attempted one pass to a wide receiver not named DeMaryius Thomas, and that pass was a Hail Mary to Stephen Hill at the end of the first half against Clemson.I thought for sure passes would be thrown to Kevin Cone or Hill just to give them the experience. At some point one of them is going to have to make a play.
The interior defensive line is still a work in progress. Ben Anderson and Jason Peters held the point of attack much better against Clemson than they did against JSU. T.J. Barnes has still yet to make a play, and looked like he was getting pushed backward against the Tigers on a few plays. He did have a tackle.
Those are a few of my thoughts. Let me hear yours. What must Tech do better against Miami next week?
