    Just seems like bryant hasn’t been the same since his injury and our defense is beat to shreds. Our play calling seems to be getting better on offense but Bryant isn’t executing. Play like we did today and the last few weeks and we lose.

    Yeah we can't do this Tommy Bowden era bullshit like fumbling on the goalline twice and dropping TD passes and expect to beat a legit team in a big spot. Hopefully everyone gets dialed in to close things.

    Meh. Either we best Miami and become a top playoff seed or we lose to a great miami team who ends up playing in the Natty. Either way this will be a great season. If you told me we would be 11-1 preseason I would have taken it.

    KB had two bad throws iirc. Bigger problem may be giving Cain so many snaps. He’s not very good.

    Deon Cain't should either be used situationally or at another position, like RRM's. Time for a new starter at the Cain spot (is that the "9" WR?).

    Cain’s plus athleticism has been negated by his inability to catch the ball. I get flashbacks of the 2010 season watching him play.

    Cain will step up before the year is out and win us a ship. People forget he sparked us against Bama and FSU last year and we win neither without those plays

    This offense is just absolutely brutal to watch right now. It seems like we run about four different plays and the zone read is never even a read. Can anyone recall an intermediate throw between the hashes anytime recently other than the throw to Greenlee last night? This offense operates entirely outside the hashes and opposing teams have to know that.

    And since the injury, there is nothing at all dynamic about Bryant's running ability and yet we keep running him 20+ times a game for 3 yards per carry.

    Maddening to watch.

    Bryant innabiltity to read a block is the most frustrating thing he's probably 1 for 10 in decisions to bounce or cut it up in the last 3 games

    But we threw screens to Cain in those games, not the deep routes we've been doing this year.

    Hot take: Powell should take over as primary kick returner. Etienne is averaging less than 20 yards per return

    Even hotter take. Tony Elliott isn't the problem.

    Snaps are too soft. KB2 is aiming instead of just throwing. Think we saw last night why Tee isn't getting more snaps. He can't read a defender to decide if he should run a route or block. Personnel groupings need to change. Also, KB2 also rarely looked for Ray Ray yesterday.

    All fixable and will have to be to win another title.

    Oh and KB2 is killing us on zr. When the end doesn't collapse you give. Cost us points yesterday because of it.

    That wasn't on Tee imo. It was a clear RPO, Bryant chose to run, Tee saw that and turned to block, and then Bryant saw he didn't have anywhere to go and threw it away.

    You sure about that? He looked to be rolling to throw and Tee went out to block. It was a 1 on 1 matchup. As soon as he saw tee wasn't going out for a pass he just chucked It out of bounds.

    Next play was the double clutch sack that put us at midfield

    We've got more rushing TDs than GT so far this season. 31. Bryant has 10, Etienne 9, Choice 5, Feaster 4, and Fuller 3. Over 3 per game.

    We've got 9 total passing TDs in 10 games though. We weren't even that bad there in 2010, were we?

    It scares me to think if we are down in the ACCCG to Miami in the 4th quarter and have to pick up two scores by throwing, we won’t be able to do it. I don’t have faith in KB against a good defense to go get points.

    We need to get healthy on defense and get the passing game going somehow. Kelly has been off and Cain is killing us. It’s not all bad. We are pretty elite at running the ball and should be able to cut the turnovers a little more than we have. One thing that’s encouraging is we appear to be able to turn it on and get it going when it’s time to. It was good seeing ETN get in there on that big drive after they cut it to 3 and got a little uncomfortable.

    Injury updates don't sound awesome:
    Nothing on Edmond or Fields but I'm assuming they're still not doing so hot.
    Can we afford to rest guys through scar? We'll obviously need all hands on deck for Miami.

    If you guys aren't nervous about the scar game, I don't know why not. We don't have the ability to blow anyone out right now and they never get blown out. It will be a one score game in the fourth quarter.

    I really hate that I agree with this. We lost to Syracuse. We can lose to anyone on a bad night.

    Really? FSU has a terrible offense and they had the ball around the 35 late in the 4th to drive and potentially take the lead. Kb owes van smith a steak dinner.

    7 players on defense hurt. If we get through Miami it’ll be incredibly impressive
