Roland will be a good one this year, I'm still waiting for Shamier to break out of his funk. This is year 3 for him.

I hope I'm wrong. I think SR will get his but it won't be the break out season we are hoping just due to needed ball distribution.
I see where you're coming from. He had roughly 500 yards last season missing 3 games, being arguably the #3 receiver. With Bruce gone, and a full 12 games, hopefully he'll come close to doubling that this year. I'd call that a "breakout" season.

Default Re: Roland.

I hope he's adding some strength. I think adding that would really separate him and improve his game that much more. He's finally getting the college position down and the playbook. He's going to be exciting to watch.

The Clemson game call was nothing compared to his Florida TD.

I believe Nick Jones will be the go to guy for those crucial 3rd down plays. Byrd & Roland will give us our deep threats. Can't wait to see how much our offense changes with a pocket qb.

If you're that good it doesn't matter who else is on the team. Based on what he did in the last few games I think Shaq is that good. I'm not counting on a lot of production out of the TEs. We've been talking for years on here about how great out TEs are and this is the year we will finally incorporate them into the offense as much as they deserve to be. I have yet to see it.

Yea I've been preaching for years on here how TEs never have and never will be a big part of Spurrier's Offense. Eapecially this year with Busta injured who knows when and if he will be back at all this season.

Our O is gonna revolve around Mike D and the running game. Roland will be one on the main targets along with Byrd and Cooper.

From what I have gathered, even though Shaq took 2-3 steps with the ball clearly tucked away, those steps were deemed "not a football move", he was stumbling. Yeah, he was stumbling and not bumbling toward the endzone!! Since when does a stumble toward the endzone not constitute a "football move"?

In the spring game, the TE's were big, and if Owens hadn't had 2 catches jarred loose, they would've been over half the passing yardage.

Yea, because the spring game typically reflects what happens in the regular games in the upcoming season.

Oh wait, it doesn't at all.

I think the TE's were big in the 2013 spring game as well.

Doesn't change the fact that Spurrier doesn't utilize them that much in his system.

Spring game = practice

TE's are never going to be a big part of the offense. Either learn to accept that or just keep being disappointed. Choice is yours.

If Busta doesn't play this season I'd expect the TE's to have a combined about 25-30 catches all year. I think last year they had around 35.

That's just the way Spurrier's O is and always will be. A few drag routes and seam routes here and there.

Default Re: Roland.

imagine how nasty our receiving corps would have been this season, if bruce would have stayed. wow! a more mature roland, bruce, byrd and cooper would have been unstoppable. not to mention how well all of our rb's catch the ball out of the backfield, and our under utilized te's. we will still be very, very good, but bruce was just starting to really become deadly.
