While it is just one game I believe this song is quite appropriate!   :P

he certainly looked impressive.  its amazing that FSU can continue to pump out 1st round QB's yet replace them with better options.  it'll be interesting to see if he can maintain a high level of play.

interesting how we used him.  i figured due to his inexperience we would run more with wild & free and stay conservative. instead we used the no huddle more than we have in years and winston was slinging it all around.  i like that the offense isn't scaled back for him.

I like the video and agree with what you want to indicate with this video.

What is truly amazing is due to Winston's play he is already being treated by the media like he was a 5th year senior.  Thought it was rather ironic when the announcer of the Nevada game was bemoaning the fact that Nevada was forced to bring in a RS Freshman QB making his first start in Division One.  Obviously, the irony in his statement was unnoticed by anyone in the broadcast since Winston was only making his second start as a RS Freshman.  Also, the attempt to point out after throwing his first interception and perhaps in attempt to pour some water on the fire, it was inferred that WInston's performance was a bit less than the Pitt game...Of course after that WInston had 13 straight completions actually surpassing the amount of completions in a row at Pitt. :o

I do believe Winston will have that inevitable bad performance but so far he really has exceeded or matched his hype.  On another subject what did everyone think of Karlos Williams performance as a RB?

its nice to see Los finally get some pt and make an impact.  He should have made the switch to offense years ago.  That said, I'm surprised he gets carries over Freeman and Wilder.  I figured when he switched sides we'd utiize him in sort of a specialist type role:  jet sweeps, reverses, bubble and tunnel screens, etc.  That is where IMO he could do the most damage.  Not lined up in the I formation banging away between the tackles.  i know he has home-run ability but to maximize that we need to get him in space.  Let Wild & Free split the regular carries.  Those two were really under utilized yesterday IMO and Jimbo could help Winston and our green defense by leaning a bit more on the ground game. 

WInston has been better than advertised but if our D continues to play like this we are going to have to win some shootouts this year. I know its nit-picky but we need to do a better job of getting the RBs involved to control the clock. WInston is going to have his freshman moments too(eventually). We can make it easier on him, especially against better teams, if Wilder and Freeman would get more carries.  Yesterday Jimbo allowed Winston to stand back there and sling it around all day, even late in the 4th qtr with the lead when we needed to slow the game down.  Again, i hate to nit-pick  after scoring 40+ in a road win but how do Wilder and Freeman combine for 15 carries in game that we led by at least 2 scores most of the 2nd half?

Yeah, I'm officially worried about the team's defense.  But man, am I pumped about Winston.

Defense has talent but they are still learning a new defensive philosophy and are too tentative and making dumb  mistakes and forgetting fundamental football.

Ok, now I'm somewhat less concerned about our defense.

The defense will certainly be tested this week.  I'm not sure I'm sold on it yet.  Maybe I'm too conservative with all these hybrid defenses and defenders playing multiple spots now but miss our traditional 4-3 where our d-line pins their ears back and goes after the QB.  Now it seems like our d-line does more 2-gap stuff and more reading and reacting instead of getting to the QB.  Admittedly we seem to blitz more under Pruitt but that is the only way we generate pressure.  I'm also not sure Joyner at CB is in the best interests of the team.  Seems like we made a deal with him to keep him for his senior year and put him at a position he is more likely to play in the pros.  But we miss him roaming around playing center field for us.

joyner was a complete stud...3 TO's?  wow.  i think big kudos should go to the WR's.  not many NFL guys catch that first TD.  lots of big catches, which have been going on all season.

Now lets see how we handle NC State.  Do you want to be a great team?   Then stay consistent.  Take care of your business against inferior competition. Great teams only lose to other great teams they dont get clipped by unranked squads.  FSU has had far too many of those in the last several years.

So far this season FSU has been incredibly consistent...   BC was actually the first game in which FSU (of the lost decade) certainly would have lost.  Last night was one in which the defense showed that they are developing into a great unit.   NO DEFENSE has handled Clemson with OC Morris like that before.    Even so there are still areas for improvement for everyone.

Agree with you though... Forget the past   One game at a time..   Clemson game was great... enjoy it for a day...  Prepare for NC State...

Oh and one last thing.... FSU has been a great team so far this season...   The only way they get beat is to beat themselves.
