I am no offensive play caller, but if Tommy Suggs saw this, then maybe SOS needs to pay heed to what Tommy Suggs was saying and start looking to your tight ends more. Just a thought as I know that we were 10-2 for the year, but maybe if you had thrown more to your tight ends you could have been 11-1 or 12-0. I do believe that SOS is not above considering it if someone in his circle points it out to him enough. What could it hurt.

I know at this point, SOS isn't going to change....but the tight end is the hardest person to defend...DB are too small and LB aren't fast/agile enough. The reason Suggs was right is we are very predictable not throwing to the TE so they aren't going to guard them until we start throwing to them. In the post of above, we only complete a pass to a TE about 1 out of every 7 completions.......that's 1 out of every 12 pass attempts.
