Can the Auburn OffenseTurn it Around Against Arkansas?

Auburn’s had two weeks to prepare for Saturday’s game against the Arkansas Razorbacks. Time to heal up some bruises and time to correct some problems. It’s no secret that one of the biggest problem areas has been the offense. Especially the passing game. Auburn got some bad news over the weekend when the number two receiver Quan Bray was suspended. I wonder who will step up in his place? Trovan Reed, Sammie Coats? Who? But more than that, will the two weeks of watching film and practicing be enough for Kiehl Frazier to show big improvement?

It has been in the news that Frazier has been spending a lot of time watching film and he says he now knows how to correct his problems. I sure hope so. If he does not stare down receivers it will be big improvement. This has got to be the week that the Auburn offense turns it around. Everybody knows that Arkansas’s defense has stunk it up this year but I’m still not sold on if Frazier can do any better. I just hope he proves my doubts wrong and we can see that coach Loeffler really is the quarterback guru people say he is. Because if Frazier can’t get it done against Arkansas then I don’t know who he can get it done against.

My questions for Saturday are: Will Auburn’s offense get it together against Arkansas? Will we have a receiver really step it up? If so, who? Will Kiehl Frazier be a new man? Will he look like the 4 star player he is suppose to be? I don’t know, what do yawl say?

    …..One of the common ways to fix “staring down” is rehearsing “look-offs.” Gus Malzhan’s offense did this, faking a quick pass to one side, then looking back the other way for a back or slot receiver who’s released up the sideline. Hit a bunch of big plays that way…

    I’m glad to know that Kiehl has been working hard to correct mistakes. Your oh so right, if he and the offense can’t get it done against the nation’s 120th ranked defense then who can they beat in the SEC?

    As for who will step up for Quan Bray, Coach Chizik has said Trovan Reed will start in his place. But I like Sammie Coates.

    I like Sammie Coates too. I really hope Frazier continues to improve. It’s really hard to grow up under a microscope!

    I thimk Kiehl just needs a big game against a “big” oponentto build that I CAN DO THIS mentality.

    Kiehl has never been in this kind of offense his entire football career. He flat out doesn’t know what to do. He’s completely confused on the field. I don’t blame him really as much as Loeffler. I dispelled that myth about our OC being a quarterback guru already. If he was one, Frazier would not look this lost when he is trying to make his reads.

    In addition, they’re trying to force him to be a pocket passer. He’s not a pocket passer. He throws on the run and in roll out situations. That’s what he has always done. We should at least start out with some movement for him. Kiehl needs the freedom to move around he can’t see over the huge offensive line. If they don’t let him move out of the pocket on a regular basis, he’ll never turn it around and that’s a shame.
