I’ll start with the good:
Morris: Dylan Morris was best part of the game. His stats didn’t do him justice. So many drops, but kid hit huge third down passes. Never looked rattled either. Our coaching scheme sucks, Morris had no easy throws. No play action passing or even safe passes to TE’s. Only criticism of Morris is stares down guys. Way too many batted balls. Was so poised tho. Looked like a vet, not a guy making first career start in a rain storm. Think we can grow with Morris.
Sean McGrew: Highly rated RB coming out of High School, every time we give him a chance all he does is shine. Yet with the game on the line when he was clearly our best back he was nowhere to be found. His best asset is his pass catching yet minus one wheel route at Cal in 2018 and one 4th down pass at Oregon in 2018 we never use him in the pass game.
Richard Newton: He’s not good. This will piss a lot of people off but his numbers in Pac-12 play only isn’t good. He can’t break off any big runs and his vision is so terrible. I don’t get how he has this myth of having good vision but he has no vision. He just runs into the backs of our OL and doesn’t ever cut back ever.
WR’s: Starting to think this could be a Junior Adams problem. We are finally playing our best guys. Bynum, Puka, Ty Jones and our two talented true frosh Rome/McMillan. Didn’t even see Chin out there. Yet drops, drops, and more drops. Remember when Adams claimed we’ll attack the ball last year? When?!! Our guys never make contested catches since he’s taken over as WR coach.
John Donovan: I hated the hire and somehow he’s even worse than I thought. It’s 2020 and we are calling fullback dives. Nothing easy on offense for a young QB either. No play action passing, no roll outs, nothing to the TE, no WR screens, no screens in general. Morris on that late scramble showed he can run yet no run-pass option for him on third and short. Instead just running Newton into an 8 man box for a gain of one in the RZ. This offense felt outdated in the 1990’s let alone in 2020. Why any WR or TE would ever come to UW after watching this is beyond me.
Bonerpopper: His rotation at RB is awful. Cam Davis whenever he has a chance looks good but we refuse to use him. McGrew clearly best back but won’t be used. Instead he features our 3 star JAG’s who nobody wanted in Pleasant and Newton. Pleasant actually had some nice runs unlike Newton. Looking at recruiting UW is fascinated with the big 3 star JAG with no speed so expect this trend to continue while Sam Adams/Cam Davis rot away on the bench.
