Chad Morris spoke with the media Wednesday where he broke down Monday’s scrimmage and much more.
“I thought our tempo was probably as good as its ever been. We had 104 snaps in what seemed to be a very little time. I have been doing this a long time and running this offense. I don’t know if our tempo has ever been as fast as it is right now. Which is great. It is what you want. You still have to be able to execute and run the tempo. We did execute. We did some good things. I was very intrigued by some of the things I saw out there. I thought Tajh there were a few mental mistakes that he had. We have to get him through those but for the most part he had great command of the offense, understanding a lot of things and not putting the ball in jeopardy which was good. He did have a couple of missed assignments on some things he shouldn’t have but we will get those right with him. I was pleased to see some of our younger guys on the offensive line kind of step forward and continue to grow. We have seen that this spring. Those guys they will bite you and that is kind of what we are after. We are after some guys that we know have a little bite in them. We are starting to see that. They are a long, long way from where they need to be as we all are but we have taken steps especially being the first live scrimmage with coaches off the field. We are seeing some promise there. Short yardage still seems to keep rearing its ugly head. We failed to convert on several short yardage situations. 4th and basically six inches down on the goal line. We weren’t able to get it in. That was very disappointing and left probably the worst taste in my mouth and our staffs mouth and our players mouth of the whole scrimmage. What good we had done up to that point put a damper on that. We met with them afterwards and shared with them how disappointed we were in that. That is what we based this whole offseason on. Everything from spring ball on is taking the ownership in short yardage,” said Morris.
