I thought he looked good. Showed poise and confidence in the pocket, displayed his obvious arm strength on his very first NFL attempt, had good accuracy even under pressure and showed more athleticism, escaping the horde rush the Browns were bringing, than I think we all thought he had. He did throw 2 picks but that can be expected in game 1(the first pick I don't even think he saw the LB and the second looked like it may have been a miscommunication on the route). I think he will do great things in the NFL.

A running backs main job isn't to block 260-300lb D linemen. Its to carry the ball, move the chains and score touch downs...being able to block a D lineman one-on-one is a bonus (and both Dobbins and Weber would fail at blocking a D lineman one-on-one). But you are right...those little guys can't play.

I am just confused...I keep reading these articles about McCalls inconsistencies and I just don't know where that comes from.? I'm not at practices so I can't speak to that but I do know that every time Demario is in on Game Day he is electric and just makes plays. Am I wrong here? He may be a little undersized (reminds me of Duke Johnson a little) but you play him and let him do what he does best...make big plays and score touchdowns! I don't see a problem with that.

I think it was a combination of things.

1. For how great Troy Smith was he was not physically ready for that game. How you wait a lifetime for that opportunity and not be ready is crazy to me!

2. Ted Ginn getting hurt on the opening kickoff and not being able to play after that took away out biggest play maker and took the vertical threat away making a much shorter field for an athletic Gators defense.

3. Our offensive line was not at all prepared for the aggressive, fast, athletic front 7 of the gators that day. They were all on roller skates and looked like 6th grader playing a varsity high school team. Short story...we had just not seen a D line like they had.

It's unfortunate. A great team was just not ready for the caliber of team that showed up that day and we under achieved! The better team, that day, won.

I'm not stupid and neither is Tate. The writing is on the wall here with where Tate stands now. Fields transfers in and is basically a bigger (by 5 inches and 30 pounds) and stronger Martell so how do you see the smaller version winning out here? Heart, maybe but very unlikely. We heard all year about the Martell package that was being put in this season and that turned out to be almost nothing. I think Urbs forced that on Day to keep Tate engaged and somewhat happy. Tate was Urbans recruit and now that he is out Tate stands between a rock (Fields) and a hard place (Baldwin, Days personal first QB recruit). I wish Tate the best of luck and I will remain a fan of his regardless of where he ends up.

I mean that he is most likely going to transfer out of OSU hence...he will not get a shot as a starting QB here from my view as a fan of him and the program. It is Tate's choice to do so but as to the disappointment I am just speaking for myself.

Comment 11 Jan 2019

First off I am greatly disappointed Tate wont get a shot here! He deserves it in my opinion. Second, Fields hardship is 99.9% going through so this isn't going to happen but we could dream.

The part of this whole ordeal that i find amusing is the injury Nick suffered is NOT a carrer threatening injury...its a sports hernia for Gods sake! He didn't blow out his MCL & ACL, fracture his femur or break vertebrea in his back...it's a HERNIA! If he comes back and reaggravates the injury he still goes top 5, fact. Fact #2...he quit on his brothers, coaches, fans and the university! I would accept this decision a lot easier if he would have been evaluated in November and the Doc said it would be 3-4 more weeks but he made this decision 4 weeks before his re-evaluation. He quit so now he can live with that decision and the critics.
