I was in a hospitality room at a basketball tournament with game up on a projector. The sound of the air coming out of goon lungs made up for me not being able to act like a fan.

Company dinner that night and they were waiting on me to arrive before going to the table…I was sitting in the parking lot listening to the game. :D

No, I am saying our defense appears to be damn good and we're 4 and Oh, baby! And yet people can't appreciate a damn good defense and would rather lose 100 point shoot outs than win with good defense. The pissing and moaning and whining is shrill. Hearing it after every win is like listening to a Pelosi speech.

What’s that have to do with my comments to the post regarding leaving plays in your hip pocket?

So I believe in giving credit where it is due. Dunn and/or Gundy (I'll just refer to them as Dunndy) called a hell of a good offensive game on Saturday night. More passes over the middle of the field that we've seen in a long long time. I'll have to watch a replay to be sure but even in the 2nd half when we had several 3 and outs, I don't think it was because we went into our usual shell....it was more due to penalties and missed execution.

The O-Line pass protected better than they have all year so that could have had something to do with it. It's also possible that KSU's secondary has issues, I don't know but we had a lot of open receivers. The biggest problem, especially in the second was that SS was off on several throws to wide open receivers. He's still the starter in my book but that has to improve quickly or I may start to change my mind.

Uh..no. I’d rather listen to us whine about wins. I can’t do the latter.

This is a myth that needs to be put to bed. Here are SS’s passing attempts for the entire season so far.

He has thrown by far most of his passes into the middle of the field, even before the KSU game.
I'll have to watch a replay to be sure but even in the 2nd half when we had several 3 and outs, I don't think it was because we went into our usual shell....it was more due to penalties and missed execution.
There were a few factors here. Warren went out and that affected our ability to run and pass out of the backfield. And then, yes, the untimely penalties absolutely killed us as well. SS barely missed on one throw to Green. It happens. But it would have gone for a TD.
The O-Line pass protected better than they have all year so that could have had something to do with it. It's also possible that KSU's secondary has issues, I don't know but we had a lot of open receivers.
It may partially be KSU but the bigger reason is that the passing schemes and plays are getting better and better. Especially when teams are stacking their linebackers close to the LOS to stop the run.
The biggest problem, especially in the second was that SS was off on several throws to wide open receivers. He's still the starter in my book but that has to improve quickly or I may start to change my mind.
Haha, no. Just no. SS had one memorable off-throw in the second half. He was nowhere near the biggest problem in either half.

He threw for 344 yards at over 15 yards per completion, with a 65% completion rate. 2 passing TDs, 1 rushing TD, zero turnovers.

If you’re thinking he needs to “improve quickly” from that stat line or else you want him benched, you’re insane.
