    Which kind of goes back to my thought when Brady was hired. He may be offensive coordinator-in-waiting. Just needs a little more seasoning before taking over the spot.

    Might be right. If it improves the offense I’m all for it.

    I don't wanna be labeled as negative, but I have to say, I view everything that I hear about LSUs offense to be propaganda until the season starts. Media is not allowed in so all we are getting is coaches and players saying stuff like "we are much better prepared this year", "we are really seeing some differences in scheme", all the normal cliches. They've said the same stuff every season since 2008 and only one of those seasons was the offense actually good.

    Brady was brought in as the passing game coordinator, but everything I've heard suggests that Brady was responsible for much of the Taysom Hill packages from last season which, almost were never passing anything. I don't believe for a second that he had a large role in the Saints passing offense because Sean Payton and Drew Bree's have done...ummmm...pretty well in that department for almost 15 years.

    Brady may be helping with the RPO and spread concepts, but the Saints hardly ever threw the ball out of those formations....so color me skeptical

    Navy lost its way. The much feared, or annoying, triple option, has worked well for Navy. Last year they ended up without a QB that could execute, and they tried three different guys without success. They became a crippled semi-single wing team with undersized line and mediocre backs. Making winning even more difficult, they are now in a conference, American Athletic, which has some pretty good teams.

    The head coach, whom I am no fan of, cleaned house of many assistants and has id’d his QB going forward. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure it’s one of the guys that was less than stellar last year.

    We will see. After kicking Army’s butt on the reg for 10+ years, Army has won three in a row, and smart money is on them to make it four.

    Grrrrrhhhhhhh!!!! Geaux Navy, Beat Army!
