    He did well blocking DE's, LB's, and DB's. On Jones' long run he makes a great block beating the DE at the point of attack?

    The loss of receiving production in the passing game is being picked up by Matt Jones.


    Here are all the offesive plays again

    This one is going to get locked just like the one lecturing us about comparing Murphy to Driskel.

    For the record, I don't think anyone claimed Burton wasn't a good blocker. Well, as long as its not in the back, late, and away from the first down play.

    wtf why are you trying to start arguments and get threads locked? Just pointing out how well he played and where we are getting the missing production from.

    Every year we need a scapegoat. Some years it's a player. Some year's it's a coach.

    I guess this year it's Clay Burton, at least now that Jeff's out for the season.

    I'm not starting arguments at all. Just informing you alot of people are probably pretty sick of hearing about how our TE who can't catch is a fantastic blocker. It's worn out. I won't comment on a thread about TE again unless it involves K Taylor or another TE getting matched up against a LB or DE on a passing route. My bad, Raz. Thanks for the observation.

    I noticed that on the tape and it was good of you to bring it up because he deserves praise for his blocking. He's a big, strong kid and did well against some pretty decent UK DE's.

    He had a very good game. I would like to see them target him every now and again just to keep defenses honest, though.

    Somebody recently posted that Burton was average!! Agruably the dumbest comment ever.

    We do...except he drops them. Every time.

    He's a fantastic blocking TE, but to be honest, a pass thrown his way is essentially wasted.

    Fun fact: he has 2 catches and 3 drops. He actually has caught 40% of the passes thrown to him.

    I like getting Matt Jones and the backs some catches, especially since we have zero production from the tight ends. Jones had a few nice catches, he's tough to bring down one on one too. I could see him getting some big plays against backers/safeties.

    one other thing I should have probably added to the OP is Trey Burton is getting Jordan Reed's plays from last year. Reed rarely caught a pass from when he was attached to the line so it is not like we are missing a ton of production from the position. The match ups might not be as favorable though because of Reed's flexibility.

    Why do you keep repeating what Muschamp said in pressers? Ah, I do the same thing. I've wonder if they might start experimenting with Burton putting his hand down on the line, maybe at the reach spot or even off the line. Something to get him matched up against base personnel, with a Sam covering him maybe.

    I'd like to see us run that middle TE screen with Trey.

    That is the play Trey Burton fumbled on in the Miami game but I am sure we will see it again

    Nah, not really, considering it's a pretty critical part of a TE's job.

    No, it's like saying a hammer drove nails really well. It was put to it's intended purpose.
