    For those of you at the game, does it seem like Cody locks in on a primary receiver and tends to "telegraph" his throws? I saw several occasions where he locked in on a guy, and threw it to him even though he had tight coverage. Then I'd look up and see another receiver wide open flailing his arms. It seems to me that Cody is doing the same things he did last year in that regard. He doesn't seem to progress through his receivers. Of course, Saturday he probably didn't have time to do so.

    On his INT he clearly telegraphed it. The guy who made the pick was just following his eyes. Also, when I say the INT on the news last night, his receiver had a DB all over him. The pass would not have been completed barring a miracle.

    I was saying the same thing at the game watching Cody. There were several plays that he completed the 4 yard pass, and had someone wide open 15 yards down field. I don't know if he gets tunnel vision and does not progress through his reads.

    The O line did not help with the shadow blocking the entire game. The INT was bad. He tossed it to the only open guy on the field. Too bad it was the wrong team.

    I would like to know what options Cody has for changing plays. There were several runs that went right at the strength of the D line, and should have been changed to the other side of the formation.

    Seems in contrast to the CSU game. I remember commenting during that CSU game that Cody was doing an excellent job of looking off the DB's. He was quickly moving through his progressions, and he was making quick and smart decisions.

    He wasn't getting pressure v. the sheep. When CH gets pressure he has more of a tendency to decide where he's going pre-snap. But then again, so do most QB's. The problems are as much on the OL as CH, IMO.
