First, I want to say that this is not a defense of Franks or meant to be. I do think he does get unwarranted crap like half the stadium yelling "throw it" when he's in the middle of a fake hand off for a PA pass. I do think he's done plenty of dumb things like run out of bounds behind the line (Driskel loved doing this as well if I remember right), not put touch on some of his passes (like his to non-end zone picks, though the first one should have been caught in the UT game), and escaping the pocket when he doesn't have to (unfortunately, he has happy feet because our line is still poor in the pass blocking department at times). Anyways, main point. I find it odd that I've not seen an article or heard a WRUF personality mention anything about Franks' performance being hindered by the loss of Cleveland (pretty much) and Toney for the A&M game. With them out we ran less screen and other staples. I point this out because the same people neglecting this are the same people that are saying that Mac/Nuss should not be judged because of injuries/suspensions. The same people are trying to pin everything on Franks (again, he hasn't helped himself, but I am not sure how much better Tebow would be in this offense, I mean, better yes, but that's not the point). These are the same people who defended Driskel at every turn, these are the same people that defended Brantley at every turn (anyone remember the article GatorSports put out talking about how Brantley may push Flacco for time in Baltimore? I can't find it anymore, but I remember laughing at it), and then made excuses for every bad play LDR had. Sorry, I don't buy that an injury is the reason you throw across your body into triple coverage 20 yards down the field against UGA. Do you think now, it is about protecting a narrative that the coaches are fine and it's all the player's fault? Or am I just reading too much into it? Again, I don't think Franks is the guy, I do think at least a substantial portion of his poor performance is coaching and to judge the two separately is ridiculous. Sorry for being so long.
