Welcome to the New Aggie Order

Where A&M has a great defense and an awful offense.

We’ve already written a Déjà Vu article following the Arkansas game. So instead of another, let’s just look at A&M’s drive summary on Saturday.

Only 192 yards, 12 first downs, and 2.7 yards per play. Add in the 3 turnovers (2 fumbles and 1 interception) and this is as bad as A&M’s offense has looked in a VERY long time. And I’m even including the 59-0 drubbing against Bama last season.

Saturday’s game should have been 59-0. The only difference between this season and last is that the defense has been playing with so much heart. It makes watching the offense that much more gut wrenching.

Shoot, the Aggies would have been blanked again had it not been for the heroic efforts of Myles Garrett. He gave the offense the ball on the 33 yard line, and the offense returned the favor by promptly going 3-and-out and kicking a field goal.

Oh and did you know that we won the turnover battle? Yep, the Aggie defense forced 4 turnovers on Saturday night and the individual effort by Armani Watts was just outstanding. He had 20 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 interception.

This loss sits squarely on the offenses shoulders. For the second week in a row the defense has done more than enough to win. But Sumlin’s high-powered offense has reached Vanderbilt levels of bad.

It’s time for Sumlin to get it fixed. His job depends on it.
