Yeah, I wouldnt read much into it. They’ll all play plenty. Probably more of a motivation thing more than anything.

Yep. He has too much talent to sit on the bench. The dropped pass is probably why or he opened his mouth at the game.

True FR back up at LG, Logan Z. Seeing signs of a weak Online. Two years ago had to recruit a JC, Perez a starter. Last year a grad transfer, Starr now a starter. Might need another grad transfer in here.

He has a history of drops. Only thing keeping him from being elite.

It was right in the breadbasket, glad I guess our new coach isn't pulling punches.

Even take away the drop, he had 1 catch for -3 yard, he had a bad game. That being said, dude has been inconsistent, he could very easily have a huge game this coming week and I hope he does. Tons of talent.

If that is true, why run a play in that area. I would think that the light problem would show up in practice in that area of the field. We were talking about the lights Saturday night in the stands. Or maybe he just dropped a pass.

In my mind he was not "benched", he is just not starting. It might or might not be due to the drop. There could be any number of reasons that he is not starting.

I do know that he should be highly motivated because he now has a QB that can get the ball to him and not require him to make circus catches.

When he came back to the line he was gesturing to say the light was in his eyes. Hard to blame him for that

He does have tons of talent, but sometimes he’s a no-show. Him playing with a better QB should make him better overall this year.

Not sure you can say he has "tons of talent." By what measure does he have that? He is extremely inconsistent at catching the ball which makes it harder to throw to him in clutch moments. He seems to catch the ball better if he is not in a position to advance the ball (catches in MACC in end zone and low throws) vs when he has an opportunity to run after catch. It's anecdotal I know and I'm sure I could come up with the opposite proof but that's my analysis from afar.

Impossible to say how good or bad Tears is with who he had playing QB the last two years. It was one drop in a game they won. Relax

I think with Bowers at QB we will find out soon how good Tears can be. I'm not concerned about one drop at this point.

Agree, I think we have a QB that can test this theory, I pray Tears responds.

Sure but it also come across as excuses.
