The offense has room for improvement, but this group is light years better than the disaster that was last season.
I agree with this some. The pass rush has been terrible because we have played teams that have either moved the QB around or have thrown very quick passes. That said it would be nice to see a little bit more pressure, but I think this has been a little overstated. This MSU game will be interesting because I think we are set up well to stop more of a power attack and haven't faced one until this coming weekend.
I'll agree that the LB play has not been good and is with out a doubt the weak spot of the entire team. There is talent there, but for some reason it isn't working.
