Former NFL GM Michael Lombardi Rips Into Auburn Head Coach Gus Malzahn
Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sport
Former NFL GM Michael Lombardi wasn't afraid to let it rip when criticizing Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn after this week's loss to LSU...
quote:

“My man Gus Bus, that’s the worst offense I’ve ever seen,” Michael Lombardi said on his podcast, via Saturday Down South. “He had no idea how to throw a football. Zero. Zero. All he does is scream at the players, he has no idea how to throw the football. He has no passing game … He’ll blame it on a rookie quarterback – no, he’s got a bad, bad offensive scheme. It’s horrible.”

He may be an asshat. He may not be a GM anymore because he sucks. But he isnt wrong about Gus. Not in the slightest

He’s right, plus Gus is an arse hat.

Actually, Gus isn't an arse hat. This guy couldn't coach a college team and have half the success that Gus has had. Hell, Gus makes more money in a year that that guy made the last 10.

Bo Nix vs LSU = 15 / 35 - 157 yards - 1 TD / 1 INT vs Florida = 11 / 27 - 145 yards - 1 TD / 3 INT

Gus made Mitch Mustain the QB he is today.

Gus Malware had NOTHING to do with Cam Newton's Natty (except when Gus threw his hands up and let Cam run shite his own way). But Gus has been riding those coat tails for years!

If your offense sucks, And it don't look good, Who's the one at fault? Gus-Bussers!

You think he was riding those coat tails when he took a DB in Nick Marshall and played for the National Title in 2013? Yeah, that is an inconvenient fact.

I'm not a fan, but with a good QB Gus offense is dangerous as hell.

Meh, most offenses look pretty good if there's a good QB. Hell, Mack Brown's shitty offense looked brilliant with Vince Young at the helm.

It's a perfectly fine college offense but it's terrible for NFL development, which is probably why a former NFL GM hates it.

And yet we couldn't get out of our own way to blow these turds out of the water. That do nothing offense scored 20 points off our defense. And yes it was ugly.

one TD was on a short field, other was aided by what amounted to a hail mary and an awful PI call. calm your tits

111 yards of their 287 yards of total offense came on just two plays that resulted in only 3 points total. The 41 yard run before half, and that 70 yard run early in the 3rd. Their touchdowns came on a short field, and a drive with back-to-back plays of no call offensive PI and bad call PI. The score had everything to do with LSU's lack of execution on offense/their defensive front and strategy, and LSU's poor performance on special teams.

Our Defense played exceptionally well in the second half. You have no idea WTF you are talking about. GO AWAY.

Auburn runs a basic ass, high school offense.

I totally agree. I was at the game this past Saturday (endzone seats) and I could pick up a great amount of their plays. What is puzzling me is why did the LSU defenders not recognize this?

I'm all for Auburn keeping Gus, so I think this Lombardi guy should chill the hell out.

Same reason why Alabama fans wanted LSU to keep Miles?
