I don't think there is a question that Saturday's game is a must-win for the Aggies.
The team needs to bounce back after last week's performance. Just get that taste out of their mouths.
I spoke with McDermott today and I was impressed by his demeanor. Very cool and calm. It seems like he's ready for this. The question is, is he ready for the speed of the game and does he have a grasp of the offense.
I think he knows the system. He and Chris Williams said that they have been working together for weeks now and that J.J. often practices with the first unit. Against Boise, it looked like he was thrown off by the tempo, specifally the rush. Chase does a great job of keeping his eyes downfield and finding the open man. Again, he has a lot of experience while J.J. is green.
The season is not over. The team needs to respond. This is a big week for Aggie football.
