    Max has the height and a cannon arm. Is it time for a change?

    He should never throw a pass for UF. If you think Jeff is bad Staver is 5 times worse

    He's worse at reading defenses than Driskel. We will be stuck with Driskel until he graduates.

    Why recruit him if he's terrible? Driskel lost this game. He needs the pine to realize he can't do that again.

    They missed on 10 QB's he was a last resort. Driskel is the only D1 caliber QB on the roster.

    We've got a real problem with offensive philosophy if we miss on our top 10. Time for a real offense.

    This is probably my main beef with Muschamp. It shouldn't have taken this long to get a top notch guy like Will Grier. We needed to get somebody like Cooper Bateman last year. I think Muschamp and Pease deserve a chance to handpick a guy, groom him and let him loose. We are dong exactly that will Grier. It has arguably just taken longer than it should have.

    i don't know what the answers are to fix the offense, but i know that benching driskel isn't one of them.

    unless staver is absolutely lighting it up in practice there's no reason he should see the field unless it's in garbage time where we're up by 40 points. which at this rate, might not be happening for a while.

    Missing WR's last year is a bigger deal than missing a QB last year. If we had a player like Diggs in his 2nd year on the team the offense would be more explosive, Bateman would not beat out Jeff or even compete with him.

    I wasn't impressed with Bateman. I heard he's like 4th string at Bama and their backup QB situation is just as worse as ours. Last year was a weak year for quarterbacks in the southeast.

    I'm ok with starting Grier as a freshman. He has to be just as good, if not better, than Jeff at reading coverage as a True Fresh.

    Not necessarily Bateman but a top-notch guy. Somebody higher than a Plan J If last year was a weaker year for QBs, then yeah, I guess that's just a tough break that shouldn't be held against Muschamp and Pease.

    And AZ, I see what you are saying, but do you really think Diggs would have helped us win the game today? I don't see it.

    Pains me to say it, but I wouldn't have minded going after Winston a little harder. :sick:

    I will say this to be honest... I do not believe in outright replacing Driskel as starter, but I would have put Murphy or even Staver in the game and sat Driskel until he composed himself.

    But that's me.

    Do you still think Grier doesn't stand a chance of starting next year?
