How bout our line blocks for the guy so he is not always running for his life.
The OL has done pretty good thus far with the exception of UNI. UConn and Texas both love to blitz. They will overload and bring more than you can block. In those situations, it falls on the OC and QB to recognize the blitz and and adjust. Against both teams the quick passes, slants, screens, etc were there all day. Roll the QB out a little more. Have him make dummy changes to get the other team out of a blitz, etc.
A couple of times in the last three games, he's taken off running and runs a ways and falls down. One particular time against Texas there was at least ten more yards available and he face-plants.
I understand not wanting to take kill-shots but hopefully the rest of the season, the game slows down enough to take advantage of his wheels, which are pretty good.
