    Look, I'd much rather see Lee start Saturday. But, if Jefferson is indeed going to start, obviously I want to see him make the most of it.

    In the second quarter in Atlanta, he handed off to Shephard who ran 50 or so yards for a td (much like vs Auburn last year) and threw one about the same distance to Randle for a td in the same quarter.

    What the heck happened to those plays ?

    Jefferson threw one big 51 yard pass play. An under thrown pass to a wide open Randle.

    So even that was a mirage if you think about it.

    He handed off to Shepard for 50 yards for another TD and the other drive was 30 yards in length.

    Jefferson has been played left-handed this season, in an attempt to make Auburn over-confident. Wait until you see the Auburn defense lit up when he comes out throwing right-handed!

    Good quarterbacks have bad days. Bad quarterbacks have good days.

    Right on target according to Randle, just saying. Even if you watch the play it was pretty close to being perfect.

    Maybe Lee playing so well in the Spring and getting so much better has given him a complex. And this comes out even more on Saturday. To me it seems like he gets too excited about every good play he makes, and crumbles on every bad play. Seems to me his emotions affect his play.
