    I am sorry, but I can not stomach our starting TE dropping another pass.


    Has he EVER made a play? I've never seen it.

    I agree how can Thompson and Taylor be so bad! His hands are made from cement!

    He was also flaged for a PF which took away mo and backed us up to midfield and the next play we fumbled

    Yes, he has to be the worst starrtiing TE at UF in history. We'd be better playing 10 players.

    Clay Burton is just like his brother, jack of all trades and master of none.

    It is an absolute travesty that the #1 and #2 TEs in the 2012 class can't get above 3rd and 4th on the depth chart.

    I can't imagine Taylor or Thompson being this bad. Maybe they just don't fit the profile of run block run block run that champ likes.

    They can actually catch, and are better at it than blocking so champ does not allow them to be played.

    Maybe Pease's playbook is too complex for the players? Like everyone says Gruden's was. Maybe they should simplify it, and dumb it down to post patterns, and quick slants to get something going.

    If one of the four TEs can't make a positive impact (don't forget Westbrook), go with the 6 offensive linemen or Ajabe/Joiner

    In Muschamp, receivers must block first, second, third, and fourth, and the ability to get open and catch a ball is an after thought.

    We've done better in the passing game compared to last season thus far...with the one exception of the TE position, where we have NO passing threat down the seam to keep LBers and safeties honest.

    Last year, Reed was our only threat in the passing game--this year, we're gifting the middle to the defense and totally reliant on crossing routes to bring the middle into play. If Taylor or Thompson are really that bad at blocking--just use them as receiving TEs!!! How hard is that?

    I understand that but at some point, costing your team field goal position with a stupid penalty would buy you some bench time.

    I say from now on we march down the field to the 20 and whether it's 1st, 2nd, or 3rd we just kick the field goal.

    Champ does not bring guys off when they make personal foul penalties, offense or defense, I've never seen it done.

    With Miami, any time they received a personal foul the player immediately came off and got a talking to. Just something I noticed

    That was just plain bad. He was 20 yards away from the play and our guy was running out of bounds and he just leveled the guy. Punk move and it really set the tone for the game. I absolutely believe that not one single turnover in and of itself was worse (collectively they were obviously) than that pointless, undisciplined, selfish play by Clay. The fact that it happened at the beginning of the game, completely stalled a great opening drive that was setting the tone and gave the early, always crucial momentum to Miami was devastating to our team.

    When you make as few plays as Clay does, hurting your team that badly is inexcusable.

    This! I've dubbed Clay Burton "Play Dough".

    When the depth chart first came out, this was the biggest issue by far that I complained about. Where are AZ and GrayGator (Todd) today to tell everyone again why hands of stone Clay Burton is the best TE option followed by Westbrook?

    It was a pleasure watching other team's TEs do more than block..........
