1) Could you try Q & A with twitter? – Anonymous
That sounds interesting, I’ll try that out sometime.
2) Logic would state that running the pistol offense would mean our QBs would have to endure a higher frequency of violent collisions than a more conventional offense. For a program that has been beset by injury at the QB position for the last several years, can you discuss the wisdom, or lack thereof, of instituting the pistol? – Anonymous
Lack thereof is the operative term here. I was talking with someone about this the other day: Wouldn’t you wait to make such a change until you had the personnel? I don’t get it.
3) Why do we keep throwing to Harkey? He has the worst hands of any TE I have seen. How bad is our TE depth if he is starting – Anonymous
Problem is you have one tight end who can block but can’t catch and another who can catch but can’t block. Still don’t quite know why Morrell Presley isn’t getting time at tight end. I think he’s a fit there, if Barr is doing so well at F-back.
4) What is Chuck Bullough’s contract status? Same question re Chow, Moore, Moses and Ganz. Thanks. – Jungleland
From what I understand, all assistants are year-to-year except for Chow.
5)It seems to me that many are criticising our coaching staff’s ability without looking at injuries and the number of underclassmen that have been pressed into service. Thursday’s announcer said that 16 players have gone under the knife. (surgery) Can you give us a list of the players that have had surgery, missed games due to injuries and how many games they missed, and have had career ending injuries this season and offseason? And maybe you could add in the players that have been suspended. – Roland Armstorff
I’ve done that, numerous times. I’ve written an entire feature about it. It’s quite shocking really. But, and this is one big but, that is no excuse for how the team performed against Washington and at other times this season.
