LSU Recap: Performance Grades


Quarterbacks: B- Russel continues to remain steady- steadily average. He can make some wonderful plays- like his two touchdown throws, one to Bennie Brazell and one to Dwayne Bowe. However he was off target on some of his throws, had an interception, and took too many sacks. Russel needs to get better at game management over the next few weeks. Honestly we can't afford so many mistakes against Auburn or Alabama.

Running Backs: A- Joseph Addai once again proved that he and Ken Darby are the two best tailbacks in the SEC. His 156 yards were key to the Tigers winning the game. He came up with a number of mid-yardage runs which extended LSU drives. Clutch performance. Justin Vincent solidified his fall from grace by fumbling on his only carry.

Wide Receivers: A Our wide receivers looked much better this week. Benny Brazell really stepped up in a way I had not anticipated. Bravo to him. Dwayne Bowe once again made a couple of key grabs and proved he's our best receiver. And finally, Early Doucet made a huge catch on 3rd down in the 4th Qtr. Early was wide open and probably would have scored on the play had Russel made an accurate throw. But Russel's throw was off and Early had to come back to the ball to make the grab. Very big play, Early continues to iprove with every game.

O-Line: B- The line had a few problems against a solid Gator D. They opened up holes for Addai, but they were leaky on pass protection at some points. May need to be better for the Bama game in a few weeks.
