That was my point the safety had cleared off and it was wait, wait, wait, the reciever was there, deep, with a safety gone and he kept waiting because he was too timid to make the throw. Look I liked the guy and defended the heck out of him, but in hindsight there were some limitations.
Too timid to make the throw? You are really reaching now to try and validate your point.

Any of the first four are an appropriate argument. I chose QB because if we simply cut late game TOs then we go bowling last year.

I picked QB play, the conundrum for me is that I have been a big fan of Amart, after watching some old games, there seems to be quite a bit of times where a receiver was open early if he had made faster decisions. So my initial instinct of better line for this answer may be negated with quicker decisions on slant plays etc. Was Amart holding the ball longer than necessary to get positive yards? If he had made a quicker decision to get the ball out on a timing play would our line have been under less duress? I am inclined to think so from the stand point that our two minute drill was usually pretty successful in get yards and moving the ball quickly. It seemed like the series where we were taking a more normal tempo failed because we were trying to go for big pass plays down field with a staring down of the receiver. We will see if it was the chicken or egg but it does seem like Thompson may be a tad quicker in the reads and decision to throw.
Yep

64% O-line. Special Teams is second with a mere 16% of the votes.

Anyone else surprised how few votes Special Teams has received?

It's somewhat surprising, but the question was what we "want" to see this year. I think we all "expect" to see improved ST. It was SO bad last year, and they brought in two new specialists (with very good past collegiate results and accolades) and an ST coordinator. Therefore, I believe we "expect" improvement there. That leaves us with what we "want."
