There were three concerns coming into this season for Esk fans:
Coaching staff - I think Lancaster Jr. showed his play-calling brilliance when they decided to stop running the ball for no good reason after getting 30 yards on the ground in the 1st quarter. Also, the low percentage pass out of the shotgun on a 2nd and 2 cemented my opinion that he learned how to call plays from playing Madden football on PS2.
Offensive line - they have been inconsistent, but really so has BCs O-line. I think the difference is more due to play calling and execution on offense. It's hard to block well when the defense always knows EXACTLY which player has the ball all the time on every single play.
Running back - we have several guys who look like they could tear up the field if given more than 5 or 6 carries a game. McClendon, Jenkins, and Dedrick are all capable backs but not one of them will get a 100-yard rushing game this year unless they break one of their 5 carries for 90 yards. But even if he did, the coaches would immediately abandon the running game and call passing plays from a 5 receiver set out of the shotgun for the final 3 quarters.
The team still looks good, but who is driving this thing?
