    That was probably 80 pounds ago. So did Powell. He would have been a much better option.

    Hit Orr in the hands, and no one expected him to be a receiver. Thought it was a good call.

    And they obviously repped that play in practice. I loved the call. It was Orr who failed to execute, and he knew it (as evidenced by his reaction).

    Those type of plays only work when other teams try it against us. When we try to do it... well...

    This is just slightly off topic and I'm sure that you were on the game thread all night but I don't remember you being on the boards last year when things were better. Why is that? Genuinely curious, not being a jerk.

    I thought it was a brilliant play. If TB didn't have to fall back to avoid rush it might have been completed.

    Was Orr laughing on the sideline? Because he sure wasn't immediately after the play.

    After the play he was definitely upset. Beyond upset. But I thought I saw them laughing about it afterwards on the sideline. Unless I interpreted it wrong or took it too much to heart.

    I've been on here since 2009. I've been on during good years and bad years. I've been on more frequently this year thanks to my new cozy job and because I try to make sense of the worst season in 30 years. Im also a gator grad and have deep family history with the school. my passion is strong, pls don't confuse it with piling on.

    Not really. Some players have really good hands. I was an offensive lineman in high school. I had no speed but I could catch better than our receivers. It's not unheard of. Maybe Orr can't catch but just because he is a d lineman doesn't me he can't. The coaches obviously thought he could... Not that there track record is all that good.

    Wasn't there some talk of Orr playing TE at point or something?

    Maybe he actually can catch, and honstly if the ball was delivered just a LITTLE sooner he had a pretty damn big window to catch it. But the ball was just a little bit late which made it alot tougher on Orr.

    It wasn't a terrible play design. THAT was the least or our worries. Although it did probably help them put the game away. I am not sure it really mattered, I thought to myself the game was already over when it was 16-14.
