AREA GRADE COMMENTS
PASSING OFFENSE
D+
The Cadets still aren't producing enough yardage to be competitive. Carson Williams also threw way too many interceptions (3). One bright spot was the 27-yard scoring toss to Jeremy Trimble. Williams also had another 32-yard non scoring pass to Trimble.
RUSHING OFFENSE
C-
Making improvement. Plebe Patrick Mealy rushed for 86 yards against a formidable Tech defense. Army needed to get a rushing offense going to compete with Tech and they did.
PASSING DEFENSE
C
Army gave up 218 yards on 14 completed passes but gave up no touchdowns through the air. John Plumstead had two sacks which is always helpful in slowing down a passing game. Try to reduce the completion rate to below 50 percent and get some interceptions.
RUSHING DEFENSE
D
Tashard Choice went out early with an injury but Tech didn't miss a beat with Rashaun Grant who averaged almost 11 yards a carry.
SPECIAL TEAMS
A
Owen Tolson had another super game punting, averaging over 43 yards a punt. He had 2 go over 50 yards and 3 punts were downed inside the 20. Tolson also made a 45-yard field goal, his only attempt of the game.
COACHING
C-
Stan Brock and his staff did a good job putting together a game plan where they could gain some yardage on the ground. The passing game continues to give up too many interceptions. This is a recurring problem that needs to be fixed.
OVERALL GRADE
C-
Well although it wasn't the Christians against The lions it was a tough. Army had the game tied 10-10 in the first half but couldn't stop the tough Georgia Tech rushing attack. Army will have two weeks to get ready for Air Force. Hopefully they can put a few more wrinkles into the offense and improves its effectiveness.
