Progress but not enough

. When Montgomery was injured last year it took away our only true offensive weapon. It really is amazing he is back on the field but he hasn't regained his burst yet. Galvin could have answered the call but we know what happened there. When you cannot run it limits what you can do. When you are still struggling to protect you have a recipe for Tuel getting killed dead. I also don't necessarily agree that there is depth at receiver. Karstetter is really a solid complimentary player similar to Scott Lunde and no, I’m not just saying that because they both happen to be white. Both caught the ball but just don’t have the superior athletic ability to make a lot of plays after the catch. Thing is, Lunde had Devard Darling, Sammy Moore, and Jonathon Smith around him and a senior QB in Kegel. Karstetter has Blackledge, Solomon, and first year Wilson and Barton and
a true soph Tuel throwing it. It's tougher than it looks to call a game with all the pieces still coming together. I don’t know if I totally agree that all of Price’s QBs were always allowed total freedom. Maybe the best but I don’t know about the years we had Deeds, DeGreiner, or Menke behind center. I do agree that Tuel needs to be given the chance to check out of bad plays. They either need to go to the no-huddle exclusively to give the sideline the control to call the play after seeing the defense or let him go. I think they have the talent on offense to make it work. Tuel/Halliday, Galvin, Wilson/Barton/Karstetter/hopefully Williams. If they can continue to grow the OL with the JC OT, Fullington, Reitnoeur, etc., then maybe they can actually use the TE's they have in Lintz (who looks pretty athletic for a TE), Dunn, and Stormo. This is still a young group even next year as much as it pains me to say "we are still young" and that maybe we need to wait until next year. It's game 5 though, I still believe things can turn around. They need to bottle that first drive against SC though and learn from some of the mistakes.
