flat out baller. when he took that ball from Georgia on that first long pass in the game that was amazing.

he also doesn't get credit for his special teams play. at least 3 times the opposing kick returner should have had a return for a td but Byrd chased them down.

That QB can't throw more than a 15 yard slant either.

Classic example why you can't give up on young players. Something that our fan base does a lot.

Shit, we give up on coaches within 5 years.

Before Spurrier, we used to chase coaches off after 3 or 4 years.

It was a little under-thrown, but in the right zip code and Byrd did what he was supposed to do. Go get his damn ball!

Would rather see him catch it with his hands rather than his bicep/forearm but hey, it still counts. Great play by Shaw and Byrd.

Then he let a touchdown from Dylan bounce off his face. He needs a lot more reps. His pass patterns aren't much either.

As did Nick Jones who is one of our most sure handed guys. I wasn't at the game but it looked as though the sun messed with both players.

Good point. Another point to make is that Connor shaw CAN throw the deep ball well.

I was happy to see him run some different routes and get a chance to make plays other than run deep as fast as you can.

Nick's would've been a circus catch, a real tough one. Byrd just needs a lot more work if he wants to start, imo. Liked seeing Shaq catch that one Connor threw out of bounds....would've been an easy TD.

Default Re: Yeah, he can't catch

Honestly, I'm not telling you anything you don't know, but that was not a great example of good technique. He let the ball get in on his arm and cradled it. He will have some drops ricochet off his body if he employs that technique consistently. He did do a nice job of shielding off the defender from the under thrown ball. Also, not dogging him out but you should probably show the one Dylan bounced off his face mask in the end zone to be fair. Although on that one he didn't go up and try to make a play. Oops I see the discussion about him getting doinked in the face. Right before that nick misplayed another perfect throw from Dylan as has been noted. At that point I'm thinking, we need to recruit another all SEC type receiver, like today.
