i think negron has been more than sufficient in a run-first offense.  he's completed the passes for the most part htat he's been asked to make, and taken care of the ball.  a little scrambling when asked too.  limited mistakes and controlled the clock.  then again ive only seen maybe 4 of the 6 games so there could be something im missing.

I see it a little differently ... Lets use yesterdays game for example. On a few occasions his short passes have been way off with no pass rushing When he targets a WR. He appears to have tunnel vision on more then one occasion therefore opening up to sacks. When he does see the a sack coming and doesn't throw the ball away he takes the loss.. I do understand this year offensive line is not as good as last year and opens up the doors to sacks, forcing him to scramble more instead of sitting in the pocket and waiting for a WR to open...

I actually watched some of the Towson/ villanova on NBCsports and V quarterback Robertson ran for 150 yards and had 2 touchdowns. I think negron is just as good as Robertson and he too can run for over 100 games, if asked to do so !!!!!!

Hammer, I too saw several easy passes that Negron "chunked" or threw into the ground at the feet of his receivers.  I attribute this to lack of consistent passing mechanics.  he needs to get his feet set and square up his shoulders on even the easy throws.  I think he gets a bit sloppy on the easy throws and the results are he misses as many as he makes.  Early in the season, RI and Buff, Coach P used to run Negron more on the QB option.  since he hurt his shoulder, I think Coach P is hesitant to run Negron and risk and injury that could knock him out for weeks at a time, or maybe lose him for the season.  As much criticism as we put on Negron, I saw Coxson drop a two or three real easy passes yesterday, so there is blame to be spread around.  Again, lets get Tye open downfield and see him rip up DBs.  I'm tired of seeing him catch 2 yard passes out of the backfield.  Even the Colgate TV announcers had quickly figured out when Negron would throw to Tye on the short routes.

Our offense last night was  very  conservative. The 2nd half they  didn't do much of anything except protect the lead. We cant seem to  stretch the field as we did last year. Our passes are all the short range variety  8-10 yards at best and hope for a run after catch. Negron threw one  pass of about 40 yards  but over threw his man last night  then went back to the short stuff.   CAA  defensive co ordinators are going to pick this up  rather quickly .  And with out a real running threat we could have problems the next 5 games. Too much predictability right now with our wide receivers who have both speed and size and don't seem to used.

Wolf- I agree with you.  last night, second half should have been an opportunity to air it out a bit and try some new things.  cant blame Negron for that, he is following orders.  we need to become more of a second half team, really start to exploit other teams.  we slowed down last night and against Towson in the second half after piling up good sized leads in the first half.  I've conjectured all year that for SB to really be successful in the CAA, we need to be more multidimensional in the passing game.  five games to go, all against CAA teams, this should be interesting.
