Noticed on his four 3rd-down conversions…

Yards to go: 8, 7, 8, & 7.

Thinking it might be helpful to do better on 1st & 2nd downs.

Best QB play that we have had in 4 years. He could use some help with the missing receiver group and better play calling to give the team success.

QB and running backs have to get into a rhythm to perform at high levels. Both QB and Running back were able to do that Saturday. Unless we get more help with other parts of the offense , then it will be easy to gear up to stop these two and then we will think they have gotten bad all of a sudden. Winning is hard at this level and to win you have to eliminate the things that hold you back.

i thought Franks played a great game, without a couple key parts, in the rain, on the road, against a top 15 team…and we were in it until the final 10 seconds. Wow…lots of progress since game 1.
