it sure is very easy to pick on someone, he played a good game . give the fella break. go irish :)

 

i love your positive thinking, but he was not good.

 

held onto the ball too long, took too many sacks or rushes, and shouldve scrambled a few times when he didnt. we wouldve won in the 2nd ot if he broke for the goal line.

at first glance i didnt think sharpley was the problem, but much like a lot of problems on this team cough cough OLINE, i talked to someone who was at the game and he was missing open guys all day, if jimmy is healthy than put him out there but otherwise it looks like Sharpley is the guy the rest of the year, just gotta get through three more games of this crap hopefully wins, and the future is bright if we get all those guys who verballed to sign a piece of paper...and hey the bball team looks pretty good this year guys hahaha Tory Jackson, Harongoady and co. :D

I just can't believe that there weren't receivers open all over the place. If a DIAA team can throw for 450+ yards on Navy, how can we not? I don't care if every one of our players are true freshmen, they should have 10 times the talent that Navy has, and 20 times the talent that Delaware has. I know Sharpley missed a ton of passes and I know a few of those passes were dropped as well. Our run game is being hindered by our inept passing game. There are problems all over the place, starting at the top. Let's face it, we got beat by what equates to a high school team today. But, you've got to give Navy credit, they smelled blood and went in for the kill. Unfortunately, other coaches have way too much ammo to use against us in recruiting and I will be shocked if we keep our current class as is...shocked.

i would of said the same thing before the USC game about recruiting, but then gray and floyd jumped on, i think we keep our guys we have and hopefully get page and robinson, these guys arent really looking at us this year it seems like, they just think that with the current young guys on the team and them, they believe they will really turn this thing around and i pray they can

I don't like focusing blame on individual college players, but once we're looking at Sharpley, let's look at his receivers. Sharpley made a bunch of mistakes, not the least of which was the last 2-point conversion, where he missed a WIDE OPEN John Carlson in the back of the endzone, instead throwing to a well-covered Parris. And he was too prone to taking sacks overall, including his damn fumble.

 

But his receivers made some pretty abysmal plays themselves. Aside from Kamara, who made that pretty TD grab and moved well on the Samarzdija WR screen, and Parris' 4th & 14 catch, the WR's didn't seem all that productive. Sharpley actually had some time today. But the intermediate routes still weren't there, and Sharpley ran it a few times even after five-six seconds of protection. Tate never touched the ball - we never even tried the play-action pass deep to him. Also, West and Grimes had some critical drops, particularly Grimes' drop at the end. If he catches it, then I think we get at least the 33-yard FG, at best we get a 1st down and keep moving. If there's a single play where it's easy to pinpoint our loss, it's that one. He's a little hurt I know, but he's not fast or big - the main thing he brings is hands, and he didn't bring them on that play.

As I was swearing like a sailor in honor of Navy at Sharpley, my wife kept reminding me he wasn't that bad....my screaming tantrum "bad, not bad, your'e right, he's lousy" didn't sit well until of course he fumbled they scored and she said - yeh "he sucks"

 

JC must be hurt not to play...
