I don't like it either, but that's the offense.  You can tolerate it when it's working, when it's not it looks disjointed and indecisive.

It's working at Penn State!

All of the looking to the sideline, the foot tapping, finger pointing, stepping back, then up, I think its a bunch of hooey. Turn around and hand it to Chase, or to Palladino or to the freshman. 

Anderson looks like he is playing that dance game at Dave and Busters before every snap.


100% correct.  Anderson and the Offensive Brain Trust think that they have invented the Greatest Show on Turf.  Attention Offensive Brain Trust......you are fooling no one.  We are averaging less than 3 TD's a game and have barely found the endzone the last 2 weeks.

I think Lafayette is a bad football team but their new staff is starting to instill some confidence and discipline in them and has them playing to their utmost potential.  As Garrett gets to recruit his guys and they get used to his system I think they'll be back at the top of the PL for a while (I know they're technically at the top now but there's no way they stay there this year imo). 

Conversely, we have so much more talent than them imo but we lack discipline and we certainly lack confidence.  I had that 'uh oh' feeling when seeing us go into halftime up only 7 - 0.  I just had no confidence that we would make good adjustments or find a way to add to our lead and put the game away.  Our secondary is just sooo bad and particularly when it matters.  The baffling thing to me is the OL which is also bad.  I agree the kids fought hard and Chase and Anderson left it all out there (others did too). 

Two teams moving in opposite directions.

Lafeyette is a bad team, so this looks like the end of the beginning and what comes next may not be too pretty.  But they are our kids and they work very hard.  Love them.

Some observations from Easton

No Corey Caddle

Ram D destroyed them first half. Amazingly Lafayette adjusted well and protected their QB second half.

First half team was pumped up, a lot of adrenalin, second halfTeam dead on sidelines. Only saw Anderson, Chase and Garrett Donaldson trying to get sideline into game.

Talked to Chase before game , we know he was playing hurt, but he said was much better. Rams ran the ball into a stacked box to try to gain a foot or so. Were stopped on some short yardage. I have never understood throughout the years why we never slip a pass to Chase sliding out of backfield
in order to get to the edges instead of obvious dives up middle. I would bet a thousand dollars that Chase will beat any corner, safety , linebacker
in Pat League one on one going to the outside.(especially for a foot)

Rams have the ball on Laf 16 yard line, need 4 yards for first, through two deep fades to corner of endzone in a row. We've got Longi with
great hands. Maybe a quick 4 yard slant for a first. Hardly seen any quick hits over the middle all year.

Leopards D ends flying at tackles curling towards high end of pocket. Kevin steps up, runs. Happened numerous occassions. One reason is because
no separation. He is a tough , muscular kid, but he puts himself at extreme risk. Got hurt 4th quarter. Hope he will be okay.

Chase hurdles a defender,re-injures ankle, couldn't walk,escorted off field. He then comes right back on with hobbled Anderson a few minutes later.
Kudos to both of them.

On a play where Lafayette needed a first(long yardage) or probably lose game, Fordham defender taps ball up,Leopard defender falls to ground and basically caught ball on his back.

Leopards score on 63 yard play, long pass, where there was not a defender within 10 yards of receiver when he was way downfield.

Put up yardage, strange rhythm to offense. No roll, very strange.

Also appears we were not outsized and had better skills, but can't get synched.

Lafayette has a decent D line. Syracuse transfer was tough.(Giudice)

Tough, frustrating loss, and as another poster mentioned, there was a vibe it was coming.

Those two play calls infuriated me.....come on coach extend the drive, please!!!  Anderson is not Dan Marino
