At this point, I'd like to assume that the Matt White hatred in comments is an attempt at parody.
Dave Steckel: 8.12 (season average: 7.06)
21 points to a top 5 offense? Brilliant!
Best game plan of the year. Mr. Heismann's lowest full-game output...ever.
Created a scheme to hold off A&M. Not an easy task.
Good game calling.
Good job containing Manziel. Defending Auburn's rushing attack will be one hell of a task though.
Great coach. would like to see more press coverage
Great game plan to contain Johnny and Evans.
great gameplan, slow to make adjustments
Great job keeping containment of Johnny Manziel
Great plan for containing the virus they call johnny football
He shut down Johnny Badminton; can't ask for more than that.
Held Aggies to much less than their avg yardage both total on rush. Shut down Evans. dlh
Outside of a couple big plays, kept A&M in check
OUTSTANDING! Until he came out with the 3-man front that allowed a long scoring drive.
Shut down Johnny Football...check
Watching your team try to stop JFF is so frustrating, but in the end, that was as good as you can ever expect. -Mac6
What can you say? Mike Evans had a career low by a longshot, and our secondary isnt even this unit's strength. Best man for the job
Who still has the Only SEC Defense to not give up more than 30 points? This guy.
Worst game Johnny Manziel has played in 2 years. Great plan, great execution.
You just held the reigning Heisman trophy winner to the worst performance of his career. You get a 9.
Markus Golden: 8.27 (season average: 7.31)
Kony Ealy: 7.86 (7.17)
Michael Sam: 7.73 (7.46)
Shane Ray: 7.39 (6.94)
Aggressive and Disciplined.
Beasts having a nasty feast
Better game on shutting down the screens
Can't say enough about the ends ability to keep Manziel in the pocket..Stats may not show it but I thought Ealy played one of his best games as a Tiger
Disruptive force throughout the game. Excellent job. dlh
For as many NFL lineman that are supposedly on TXAM our d-line pushed them around great game
Golden was ridiculous. Just how fast is he, anyway?
Got pressure against a good O-line and a QB that sometimes seems to enjoy getting chased out of the pocket. -Mac6
Got to pat Shane Ray on the back after the game. This group is one for the ages
He's Michael Sam. It's what he does.
Honestly this entire defensive line played really well. I choose to not single out any one player because I believed they all played that well.
Kony Ealy actually had a very strong game as did Markus golden. Truly a ferocious Sack Pack
Markus Golden has one of the better motors I've seen for a DL
Not as visible on the stat sheet but their containment of John Football was definitely seen and appreciated.
PRESSURE! PRESSURE! PRESSURE!
Sam needs one more sack to tie Aldon. GET IT!
Shane Ray should not be roughing the punter, but overall the line was awesome.
They did great.
Matt Hoch: 7.53 (season average: 6.77)
Harold Brantley: 7.31 (6.79)
Lucas Vincent: 7.27 (6.73)
Josh Augusta: 6.80 (6.35)
Boys up front kept good pressure for the most part.
Decent job, TAMU ran the ball better than I expected. -Mac6
Did their part, brought pressure when it was needed
Disciplined and Agressive
Excellent job stuffing the middle. dlh
Gave up a lot on the ground, not sure if we can allow that to continue against Auburn
Good sustained push most of the game against the pass..struggled against the run
Great game Augusta
Hoch and Brantley were monsters in the middle closing holes and pushing backs and JFF to Wilson
Honestly this entire defensive line played really well. I choose to not single out any one player because I believed they all played that well
I still don't know how to evaluate these guys
Lucas got in there.
PRESSURE! PRESSURE! PRESSURE!
Solid like a rock.
They tackled. They got a good push up field. A few times RBs found space but...
Andrew Wilson: 8.35 (season average: 7.30)
Kentrell Brothers: 7.61 (682)
Donovan Bonner: 7.38 (6.53)
Darvin Ruise: 6.80 (6.35)
Andrew did a fantastic job spying
Andrew Wilson is amazing.
Brothers seemed to be everywhere.
Brothers was dynamite early, Wilson missed some tackles he doesn't normally miss but was strong throughout
Great job by the LBers, kept a mostly clean sheet.
I don't know how but I swear Andrew Wilson hits harder the longer the game goes on.
I miss Wilson already.
Ruise should not see the field.
Seriously ANDREW THE HAMMER WILSON is amazing.
Solid effort by the LBs. A couple of big smackaroos in there. dlh
Stud Wilson how about the same stuff on Auburn's running game!
Talk about a couple underrated players here in Brothers and Bonner. Obviously Wilson is a star
Very nice game.
Wilson and Brothers cleaned up all night. -Mac6
Wilson and Brothers tackled very well, steckel says tackle, tackle, tackle so they did
Wilson continues to prove why he is the General of the defense.
Wilson got in the wrestling ring
Wilson tackles everything.
E.J. Gaines: 8.86 (season average: 7.69)
Randy Ponder: 7.62 (6.75)
Aarion Penton: 7.23 (6.80)
Best game of EJ's career? -Mac6
Didn't see much of Gibson or Penton- would love seeing them in the Nickel from time to time over Simon. Gaines, wow. Ponder kinda gave up a couple big plays, but nothing too extreme.
E J Shut down Evans. The others did really well too.
E.J shut down Mike Evans. Enough said.
E.J. did some work
EJ Gaines, what can you say? He shut down the big talker.
EJ player of the game, shut down Evans signel-handedly. dlh
Gaines gets a no brainer 9 for that performance
Gaines was flawless, thought the rest of the corners were ok, but some struggles against the slot
Gains was too good for words
Great job guy's now on to Auburn.
I looked up shut-down corner in the dictionary, and there was Gaines' picture.
I would give EJ more if Bill C would let me.
Michael Evans: $ catches for 8 yards. That is a shut down performance.
Mike Evans 8 yards if Gaines does not get a perfect 9 nothing deserves a 9, his performance was legend wait for it dary legendary. Great game
Mike Evans: 4 catches for 8 yards
Mike Evans: 4 receptions 8 yards... nuff' said.
No more Heisman repeat for Manziel. Excellent.
Outstanding job against arguably the best QB/WR combo in the country
Wilson might be the General but Gaines did what I thought almost wasn't possible. He kept Mike Evans from getting Double Digit reciving yards... yes Double Digit... after games where he had over 297!!! That is something.
You just held Mike Evans to 4 catches and 8 yards. You get a 9.
Braylon Webb: 7.41 (season average: 6.75)
Matt White: 7.21 (6.32)
Ian Simon: 7.05 (6.36)
Congratulations on your graduation Matt White!
Few mistakes, JFF took advantage of, but overall good game
I'm not one to usually jump on White, but he had a VERY rough game. He had a TD saving tackle, but gave up a more than he helped at times
Matt white blew a couple coverages, but made a couple plays
Matt White with crucial errors on two touchdown plays, and he got truck-sticked into the end zone on the third TD. Matt White everyone!
Matt White, be better
May have been White's worst game all season, but came out more solid in second half.
Most improved unit over the course of the year IMO
Nice game by Matt White.
Played solid besides White's blown coverage on a TD.
They did well. Stopped a couple close big plays.
Where there moments where you could have done some things better? Yes. However, every group can say the same thing and honestly you guy did a good job.
White had 2 bad plays and about 5 huge plays, other safeties were solid
Whte/Ponder get crossed up on the one TD pass. Other than that, fairly solid effort by all DBs. dlh
Worst game of the year by the safeties (esp. White). Which shows how great the rest of the defense was to limit TAMU like they did. -Mac6
Christian Brinser (punting): 8.18 (season average: 6.85)
Jake Hurrell (long-snapping): 7.75 (7.34)
Andrew Baggett (kickoffs): 7.46 (7.65)
Braylon Webb (holding): 7.20 (6.92)
Andrew Baggett (place-kicking): 5.95 (5.89)
All did their part, seemed to be few miscues if any at all
Andrew Baggett's inconsistency kicking field goals could be a blessing in disguise, Mizzou can no longer "play to kick a field goal" but on the other hand, we also can't rely on him either.
Baggett missed another one, but his kickoffs were great so I'll let it slide. Did you see the problem Alabama has at place-kicker? Yeah, I like Baggett.
Baggett missed yet again. I feel bad for the kid. Atleast this one wasn't make or break.
Baggs, is not doing so hot. Missed a FG and only one kickoff exited the end zone it looked like
Brinser played well.
Brinser was / is the unsung hero of this game. In fact, onthe other side, it was aTm's poor punt late that gave Mizzou terrific field position -- setting up Josey's 57-yard scamper into Tiger lore. But Brinser's consistency -- putting the Aggies inside the 20 four times -- limited the play calling for A&M and enabled Steck to dial up a smorgasbord of defenses. Kudos to Christian Brinser are in order.
Brinser was fantastic...Baggett was ok 47 yarders are not chip-shots, but have to think that his confidence is shot
Didn't miss the extra points at least... Brinser had a great game punting. -Mac6
Going for the field goal is still kinda risky at times but I think Baggett can still become a great kicker. Brinser dropped the boom. 4 Punts landed in the 20 and he got one on the 2 yard line. This group is chaotic in preformance but they arn't really "bad"
Great punts, all night long.
Jake really snapped the ball to his full potential this game.
Missed FG but it was a long one so it's all good Bags
No compliants. dlh
Really Brinser was the unsung hero of this game. Kept flipping the field til our offense got going.
Thank God this game did not come down to a Andrew Baggett field goal, i like the man but my anxiety levels probably would have put me in the hospital
