I always enjoy reading Greg’s grades. Thank you.

I agree our defense played better against Pitt, one of the better offensive teams on our schedule. I don’t like the 3-3-5 which is clear in my posts throughout the season. We had more success against Pitt largely because showed a 4 man front on early downs with a LB on the line an enough different looks to add pressure.

Pickett is a very skilled QB and our defensive performance against a less skilled QB might have graded much higher. If you are going to play 5 DBs they had better be able to tackle and unfortunately that has not been a strength of our secondary.

The Pitt defense is certainly among the best in the ACC and even so struggled to stop Armstrong and company. We can score against anyone.

If we can get a similar performance level from our defense on Saturday and an average or better game from our offense we should win easily on Saturday. We will need a lot more out of special teams regardless. The IF part is what makes me nervous.
