Bama’s Saban Has Plenty Of Praise For LSU’s Mettenberger

Zach-Mettenberger-PicturesZach Mettenberger’s hot start under new LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was one of the big stories of the SEC’s first few weeks.  The senior QB has cooled a bit of late, but don’t tell that to Nick Saban, whose Alabama team will host LSU and Mettenberger next weekend:

 

“I think he’s played really, really well this year so far.  They’ve got a very, very talented offense.  Balance.  They can run it, throw it.  They’ve got big-play guys.

He’s the guy that makes it all happen based on how he executes what they do.  He’s probably playing as well as any quarterback in our league…

They’ve got really good skill players outside.  Zach does a really good job of executing their offense.  He’s got a good arm.  He’s a good thrower.  He’s a very accurate passer, and he throws the ball to the right place.”

 

Saban went on to say that the Bayou Bengals will provide “a tremendous challenge” to his Crimson Tide.

As for Mettenberger, six of his interceptions on the year have come in the last four weeks.  Through LSU’s first six games, he had completed 68.1% of his passes for an average of 289.6 yards per contest.  Against Florida, Ole Miss and Furman the last three weeks, Mettenberger has completed 59.4% of his passes and his yards-per-game average has dropped to 251.3.

A September to October comparison also shows that LSU’s starting quarterback had a passer rating of 187.75 in the season’s first month, but a rating of 163.78 in the month ending today.

Are these drop-offs huge?  No.  But they do bear watching.  Especially with Mettenberger going up against one of the nation’s best defenses up next.
