    Steele observations

    I didn't get to watch the game, but while watching FSN highlights is appears that Steele isn't tucking the ball and running as soon as he feels the slightest bit of pressure. There were a number of throws he made which he stayed in the pocket, let the play develop and showed a calm composure. Granted my sample size is small but anyone else notice this?

    He played like a guy who knew this was going to be his last shot and took full advantage of it.

    agreed.. it looked like the first game of the season.... when we have pass protection, Steele looks decent. Its when he feels HE must MAKE plays, we see him get in trouble... add in little pass protection and it compounds.

    I fear... from history... OU will make it there business to ruin our QB play next week... Much like Seneca many years ago. OU has a way of making our QBs look horrible.

    Re: Steele observations

    Rewatched the game. Jantz had alot of time to throw. I don't know if it is due to the OL blocking better or bc BU's DL suck eggs (probably a little of both), but that is the difference in the last couple of losses and this win. Well that and receivers actually caught some posses too (minus Horne).

    Scheme wise I think Mess realizes that the offense needs to throw to set up the run. For this team to be successful from here on out will be dependant on how well the OL can pass protect.

    Re: Steele observations

    I'm not sure what Baylor was doing on defense, they were playing WAY off our receiver's and didn't bring any rush. Expect Oklahoma to do the exact opposite, they will bring pressure and play tight man to man defense on our receivers. That has been Stoops blueprint against us every year. Oklahoma will tests Steele's decision making ability. Lets hope he continues to make good decisions with the football.

    Re: Steele observations

    Plenty of non-blitz plays where Steele had ALL DAY to throw. Good job by line. Also he did a much better job manipulating the pocket rather than just escaping out the back right away.

    +1. We look pretty good when the opposing Defensive Line sucks, and can't apply pressure. OU w/ Stoops is the one and only game every year I think we have like < 3% chance of winning.

    Re: Steele observations

    I think we've known for awhile now Steele is a legit QB when he isn't getting pressured all the time. What makes him different from other guys is just how bad he is when faced with any type of pressure. Hopefully we continue to see level of protection we had on Saturday and Steele can continue to play well.

    Re: Steele observations

    It seems last year when Steele got in trouble, his feet sard him...this year he seems to hold stay in the pocket longer, but in earlier games fling it rather than run it.

    If Steele can play the rest of the season like he did Saturday, he's got a shot at playing on Sundays.

    Re: Steele observations

    The nicest thing watching him was that he didn't necessarily tuck and run. A couple different times (dump off to Brun, TD pass to Jarvis) he took off and kept his eyes down the field. On the Brun play he made the linebacker make his move and then tossed it over his head when he committed to the quarterback. On the TD pass he rolled parallel to the LOS, set his feet and lasered it into the endzone. Of course he got crushed after he released it but I'm guessing he'll take the TD pass.

    The touchdown throw to West was one of the best throws our quarterbacks have made all season.

    Re: Steele observations

    Even on those plays when Baylor did bring pressure and had a guy or two running unopposed straight at him, Steele did a better job of standing in the pocket and delivering the pass. Against Tech, as soon as someone came through the line, he would turn his shoulder and jitterbug outside the tackles... and usually he would jitterbug straight into where the OL was trying to push the pass rush.

    He still did this a couple times against Baylor, but for the most part, he remained very composed.

    I was also really impressed with West, Young, Gary, and Brun. Those guys caught almost everything thrown to them, many times in traffic. More of that, please.

    The flag route to Horne was also a beauty...of course Horne stone handed it, but the ball was in the only spot the offensive player could have caught it...
