    Yeah, I'm no coaching genius, but it seemed like repeatedly asking him to cover WRs outside the hashes in man to man coverage was suboptimal.

    Asking him to cover TE’s 4-6 inches taller than him is a strategy I don’t understand.

    Werner covered probably the best college TE in America last week and made a difference. He can cover probably any tight end they put him on.

    I mean he ended up on DPJ several times due to us playing base defenses on....obvious passing downs and I thought he was admirable given that circumstance. It was absolutely maddening to see him in that position but..maybe the biggest concern was Patterson running and they were content to give up the passing yards.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Not a bad strategy when at halftime, seemingly, all the tsun WRs ran their hands through Medusa’s hair.

    If we play base against LSU we will need 70. Joey ain’t Shea and Werner can’t cover Moss.

    If we face Utah they have one of the best TE in CFB. He will be a difficult matchup for Werner.

    Nittany Lion tight end Pat Freiermuth likely would have been one of the top tight ends selected in last month's NFL Draft, but instead, he elected to return for his junior season. The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder was able to enter the draft after only two years in college thanks to spending five years in high school with the fifth being a "prep year."

    Pete Werner took some lumps as a sophomore in 2018 (as did the defense as a whole) but was solid last season. Werner often drew matchups against the opposition's tight ends and we saw that late in the season against both Penn State and Michigan. Freiermuth caught six passes for 40 yards in Columbus and will likely be seeing a lot of Werner this time around at Beaver Stadium. The loss of K.J. Hamler makes him that much more important for Sean Clifford and the passing game.
