Neal Brown is Not Happy with the Passing Game

Today, WVU held yet another fall camp practice session, and Neal Brown gave his thoughts on what he saw on the field.

In a report by John Antonik, the Director of Content for the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Brown stated that today’s practice was “dominated by defense.” While he did say he would have to watch the film to determine if it was good defense or bad offense, he would point out one area he is still yearning to see improvement in.

“Offensively, it was very disappointing,” Brown began. “I don’t think there was a whole lot of competing going on. The passing game with the receivers and quarterbacks was really non-existent all day.”

For Mountaineer fans, this is worrisome.

The passing game was virtually the only form of attack the Mountaineer offense had for the entirety of the 2019 season. Both Austin Kendall and Jarret Doege are still batting it out for the starting quarterback position. If this trend continues, we could see the competition continue on until very close to kickoff — which doesn’t help anyone whatsoever. WVU must get this fixed if they hope to be competitive this season.

One player on the defense Brown would praise was Darius Stills. He would state that it appeared as if “he wasn’t blocked all day,” and would refer to him as “extremely active” for the session.
