First, for those who missed it in the thread below: here's Chase Daniel's 16-yard run late in yesterday's New Orleans win.

    By my count, of Gabbert’s 18 incomplete passes here’s how they broke down:

    Eight were for Jerrell Jackson. Some were overthrown, a few more were drops. Jackson also had two catches waved off for offensive pass interference. Add those 10 throws to Jackson’s lone completion and you get a passing attack that targeted Jackson nearly 33 percent of the time. And he caught one ball. Something’s not right there.

    Three incompletions targeted Wes Kemp and T.J. Moe. Two were for Rolandis Woodland. One was for Michael Egnew. And another was an intentional throw out of bounds.

    "We’ve got to get it figured out whatever it is," Moe said. "We got some big plays out of our running backs. We really didn’t have any big plays out of our receivers. I don’t know what else to say other than that. I thought the line did its job. The quarterback did his job. The running backs did their job. We didn’t."

    Gabbert said the problems were a matter of poor timing with his receivers, the same players he’s been throwing to during spring practices, summer 7-on-7 drills, preseason camp and weekly in-season practices. What can the Tigers work on that they haven’t been for months?

    "We just got to work better together," he said. "We’ve got to get our timing down. We need to get open. I need to make better throws. It’s a team effort. You can’t blame the loss on anyone."

    After the game, Moe spoke in a clipped tone as he discussed the failures of the passing game, his speech interrupted with frustrated pauses and sighs. It was the voice of someone who knew his team is better than it showed, who knew that some of the blame rested on his shoulders.

    "I think we’ve proven this year when we come out and play our A game, we can beat anyone," Moe said.

    For Moe and the rest of the Missouri offense, that was the problem. They know they move the ball through the air, they know they are more than one dimension, they know they’re better than that.
