Friedgen wants QB Robinson to run a different offense

Wanted to offer a quick update from Coach Ralph Friedgen’s press conference this afternoon:

I was struck by the small contingent of media here today. Only about a dozen by my count.

Expect Danny O’Brien to continue to start at quarterback. Friedgen said he is hopeful that backup Jamarr Robinson can run a different offense to give opponents even more to prepare for during the week.

Travis Baltz beat out Nick Ferrara for place kicking duties again on Monday. Friedgen has wanted Ferrara to win back the job, but he has struggled in practice.

Defensive lineman A.J. Francis called this Saturday’s game at Boston College a must-win game. Francis also said he was surprised how “irate” Friedgen was after the loss to Clemson.

Upon further review, Friedgen did not think his team was emotionally flat to start the second half.

Friedgen choked up twice during the news conference while talking about the incremental progress of his team over the past 18 games.

Friedgen will have officials at practice Tuesday and Wednesday to the team can continue to work on reducing penalties, a major source of frustration for Friedgen.

Regarding snapping the 10-game road losing streak and winning on the road, Friedgen said, “It’s about time we start maturing and grow up and are able to do that.”

AJ Francis's quote is interesting but I would want to know how he phrased it and what his reaction was to that. Hopefully Fridge put some consequences in there if they didn't come through.

If they're making such progress like Fridge is saying, then they should be wanting more and not be satisfied with where they are. Even in times of success and improvement, they should be wanting more and pushing each other to get better. They should not be feeling comfortable at all about where they are.

I have the faith that the team can come through but I think everyone should be taking the approach of "I'll believe it when I see it."

Looks like Poopy McPoop has finally gone off the deep end. It's hilarious that he got banned and is using a different screen name now. A little sad if you think about how much he obsesses about barno and comes on here every day obsessing some more.

Good grief get yourself help Poopy.

Yes it is sad. Poopy McPoop is Ralph Melish (though he is lying about, among other things, that being his real name. That name is from a character on the Simpsons).

Poopy thinks it's so funny to joke about people's dead dogs. The guy is just a loser and should be ignored.

Ralph says he wants Jamarr to run a different offnese to give the opposing team something else to prepare for.. He may want to inform his genius OC Franklin of that..All Franklin will do is snap the ball to Jamarr in the shotgun and then play pee wee football and have him try to run around the end...Can't wait to see that play again...
