After 2 interceptions why is Taylor Martinez left in the game?

Is his back up that bad?

Is Bo scared of Taylor's dad or shattering T.M. 's sensitive confidence?

While maybe not a premiere back I would want 11 Burkheads on the field. He is the man Tom.

 

Eric - I agree.  Unfortunately I think that we need a premiere back if we hope to be successful this year.  Felt much better with the Helu/Rex combo last year than I do with Rex having to try to carry the load by himself this year.

 

As he/we face some of the better Big 10 defenses we'll know more about what we have.

 

Let's face it.  If we weren't Nebraska we'd have been ranked somewhere between 18 and 25 last week.  Now we'd be hanging on to a Top 25 ranking.

 

Bo hasn't really won anything since he's been here.  He certainly is an improvement vs. Callahan.  If 8-4 +/- 2 wins a season is the new "norm" I suppose that he's a keeper.

 

I am concerned that the move to the Big 10 will hurt recruiting in the State of Texas.  Not many Texas kids have found their way into the B10 during the past 30 years.  Do kids grow up there hoping to play against UM and OSU or vs. TX (if they can't play for them) and OK?

 

 

I agree.  Rex in the wildcat, Turner on the field, bench T-Mart, and we might win a few close games this season.

"We are going nowhere this season. OSU will beat us."

 

Latest Line:

 

Ohio State Buckeyes: +10  1/2

 

Nebraska Cornhuskers: - 10  1/2

and the line on the clemson game was close to that too, with them on the + side of the coin.  I think we CAN win, but will they come together as a unit and decide that they WANT to win. 

 

I thought we were picking up decent yardage with running the football with Burkhead and our backup RB's.  Once we decided to throw the football it was over.  I am not down on T.M. and his mechanics.  He has always thrown the ball off kilter with one foot in the air and not planting his feet.  The floaters are also going to hurt us in the passing game against a good/fast defense like the Badgers who were able to sniff out where he would through the ball.  He has not been able to use his check downs very well, he looks at who is going to through the ball too and then throws the ball to the other team.  If we need to throw then use a slant or a screen to one of the RB's.  Now, that being said let's build to the run and give our Defense some rest.  This will change the entire game.  My take on the game was that we the Huskers of 2011 were playing the Huskers of 1994 on Saturday.  We beat ourselves over the  years, now we need to bring back the 1994 Huskers which will take some time.  We will be dominant again, but if you do not remember go back and watch our championship game against Payton Manning.  Now, that is what were looking for--pure dominance!!!!

 

Go Huskers!!!

Rex was tearing it up.  I think even with the stupid penalties, running him on those long first downs would have been better than Taylor throwing it.  Not sure we would have won.  Well, I'm pretty damn sure we wouldn't have, but at least we would have made a better showing.

That was a great win...but let's not forget that Manning was a one-legged QB that night and had spent several days in the  hospital dealing with an infection in his right (plant) leg.  He could not throw the ball downfield and had no mobility.  He was a sitting duck.  If he were healthy I think that we would have won anyway; but the score would have been close.

 

Then they go out and win the first BCS championship with Tee Martin at QB.  That was crazy.

That's true, he wasn't 100%.  But I'd take a one legged Payton over Martinez any day.

I'd take Peyton in a wheel chair over TMart!
