    He hasn't played a complete game yet. He cramps every game. Gotta hydrate him until he has to pee at the end of every quarter.

    Special Teams did come up big with the fake field goal though.

    And here I was thinking it was linked to the O Chromosome.

    I think it was simply something of a glitch to be honest.

    Our special teams play has typically been outstanding--especially our coverage teams.

    What we have to understand is that reasons behind our success (or one of) is that we have good team speed. Florida is a team that has just as much as we do, so it shouldn't be THAT much of a surprise if they break one loose for a TD like they did. Just like we take advantage of an opponent that is just remotely out of position, we explode through for a long gain. That's what happened to us.

    As for PP's fumble. Well, that's the mistake I've worried about from him. I've seen him field a ball that fundamentally should be left alone (i.e. inside your 10 or inside your 20 with the coverage team bearing down) or fair caught. PP's a dynamic player but sometimes he needs to reel himself in; needs to understand that against some competition, he can't always go 90 yards for the score.

    Having said that, I think his fumble was more of him taking his eye off the ball for a split second than it was him trying to do anything else...but he should have signaled a fair catch.

    Isn't it obvious? It's the head coach.
