It’s Time for Sarkisian to Unleash Locker

When Washington quarterback Jake Locker was a freshman in 2007, he rushed for 986 yards and 14 touchdowns.  He was playing for former coach Tyrone Willingham and offensive coordinator Tim Lappano, who basically threw Locker out there to run a version of street ball.

Now that Steve Sarkisian is Washington’s head coach, he’s placed great emphasis on keeping Locker in the pocket and minimizing the number of hits his quarterback absorbs from defenders.

The desire to keep Locker healthy is understandable.  But as the 2009 season has moved into November, the Washington offense is digressing.  The team is now 3-6 and the odds for a bowl game are fading for a 7th consecutive season.

It’s time for Sarkisian to call an additonal 10 runs for Locker per game, and use Locker’s greatest strength (his mobility) as an asset for an offense that desperately needs more productivity while keeping the other team’s offense off the field.

Apple Cup Disaster: The Past is Prologue

In the wake of Tyrone Willingham and Kent Baer’s defense surrendering another record-setting performance against an opponent’s QB,  I stumbled upon this article from Willingham’s last season at Notre Dame.  While I don’t like to pile on, it is incredible to read this.  You can simply change the names and it’s the same old sad story we have seen repeated at Washington the past three years.
