Notre Dame football: 2021 Week 10 offensive grades vs. Navy
Things didn’t go perfectly for the Irish offensive line. In particular, the first half saw the Irish offense struggled as a whole, and this was partially due to Jack Coan’s relationship with his offensive line. They gave up two sacks during this time, though it could be argued that these were both coverage sacks, or sacks more relating to Coan being uncomfortable in the pocket than anything else.
The running game, for its part, was solid behind the Notre Dame offensive line. It could have been a bit stronger though, especially when you consider how much stronger and bigger Notre Dame is on the line than Navy. In fact, that was the biggest issue on the game, knowing that by pure talent the line should be playing better than they were. That’s beyond frustrating. It’s also the biggest issue they’ve had all season, not playing to their own potential.
The Notre Dame football team took care of business against Navy on Saturday afternoon, and here are three things we learned in the victory.
This current lineup on the offensive line has been much better, showing growth throughout the season in a way a lot of people didn’t expect them to be able to do. That’s what’s most important in the long run for this team.
