Bobby Hebert, former Saints quarterback and father of LSU lineman T-Bob, called out Les Miles and the lack of downfield passing attack against the Crimson Tide. Hebert is a radio personality as well. It should be noted that T-Bob lost his starting position later in the season; so, there could be some built up anger or resentment towards Miles from the Hebert family.
Here’s the video:
Here’s the transcript from ASAP Sports:
HEBERT: Coach, did you ever consider bringing in Jarrett Lee, considering that you weren’t taking any chances on the field? Now, I know Alabama’s defense is dominant. But, come on, that’s ridiculous, five first downs. I mean, so it’s almost an approach, I’ll tell from you the fans’ standpoint, that how can you not maybe push the ball down the field and bring in Jarrett Lee? So what if you get a pick six. It seems like the game plan that.. not pushing the ball down the field, considering it’s like a Rueben Randle or Odell Beckham, Jr. I know the pass rush of Alabama, but there’s no reason why in five first downs.. you have a great defense, LSU is a great defense, but that’s ridiculous.
MODERATOR: Do you have a question?
HEBERT: That’s the question. Do you think you should have pushed the football more down field?
MILES: I think if you watch our calls that we did throw the football down the field. We didn’t necessarily get the football down the field. And I can tell you that the pass rush.. we did consider Jarrett Lee. But we felt like with the pass rush that we were getting that we needed a guy that could move the seat and not sustain that pass rush.
After the question, the presser room is said to have fallen very quiet and everyone was filled with shock over the question.
I don’t have a problem with the question, but the delivery of the question was almost attacking Miles. What do you think – fair question or unfair attack?
