    You'd think I'd learn to stay away from the computer after gator losses. I admit I have been a real jerk on here, I've been a gator fan all my life and it kills me to see this team in shambles. Even so, no excuse for the insults and mean spirited attitude displayed here and I do apologize to anyone I've offended, and if I could i would apologize to WM.

    This team has lots of flaws and we all know it, but piling on doesn't help either. I know sooner or later things will get fixed and I like always will be rooting for the team to win out. I will try a bit harder to control my anger/frustrations on here and may just post 4 days after a loss. I will do something different so as not to remain a jerk. Go Gators!!!

    I can understand, I am upset too. A lot of us are. This is unacceptable for our program, but we have to continue to stand together. Things will get fixed, sooner or likely, later. Go Gators

    Apparently Murphy's QBR against Missouri was the worst QBR by a Gator in the last 10 years. You have reasons to be upset

    Murphy was off but then again he had zero protection.

    Maturity rep. I often get after those who might be deemed "negative nellies." After this game, however, I have refrained from doing so. Frustration is understandable at this juncture.

    I'd put 20% of the blame on Murphy and the rest on the OL. Even then, Murph was supposedly banged up going into the game.

    Classy post 34654! We've all unloaded on this team but not many apologize for getting carried away. Well done! As frustrated as we, the fans, are....can you imagine how bad the coaches and team feel? I don't think anyone saw this coming the way our defense had played. Tyler Murphy was a pleasant surprise after JD went down, but we never saw how fragile the O-line was/is. This team will keep on fighting but we just can't take any more injuries.

    Lotsa class in the OP, 34654.

    I agree, piling on does not help.

    Let's see what the chiefs can come up with.

    We all need to remember that this is a game played by kids. To let it cause such anger and rage is really bizarre, to me. I love watching football, and I wish our offense was productive, but with all of these injuries this year, I have zero expectations until next season.

    Heck there is a great deal of blame to go around. Just pick a position. There are so many questions but I can't see where they will find the answers, I am not knowledgable enough. When we play Ga. it will be the same players and coaches. We do get heated around here and sometimes we do get a little childish when we don't agree and call people names. But all is forgiven because we are all gators. Still proud to be one even though I am getting a hell of a lot of crap from the Mizzou fans. Got home from the game with the score taped on my door.

    Murphy had no chance. I put little blame on him.

    Rep. Nice post and you are certainly entitled to your frustration as we all are. I think we will all feel a little better when we see some changes made on the offensive side of the ball.

    Kudos for the post.

    I thought about getting on the site during halftime, but decided to do something 10x more enjoyable and went out to pick up dog-poop in the backyard instead.

    These are just kids. That's why you direct blame to the coaches. They are doing a poor job. The apathy is at its highest point since Gore invented the internet. Wow.

    I put about 5% blame on Murphy for 2-3 passes he should've had. Nothing he did or didn't do was/is a difference maker. He was running for his life every snap it wasn't handed off.

    Ironically, I don't blame the oline much outside of stupid penalties and craptastic Mary Tyler Moore. The play calling (through the whole season) really is unfair to any oline.
