    Franks has more than a half dozen passes that have hit defenders right in the hands and were dropped. If he hasn't always gotten max help from his receivers, he's gotten a sh#t-ton from opponents.

      All the more reason for the WR's to help out their often-erratic QB as much as possible.

        LA your avatar kind of looks like Franks. You are a big Franks fan, aren't you.

        Eric Andre of the Eric Andre Show. Pretty damn hilarious, check it out.

        I want to get on the Franks bandwagon but it's kind of like trying to leave the mafia:

          That's right. We haven't gotten any pressure in the last two games and Locke will play better against FL most likely.

          He's still not seeing the field or maybe he's ignoring the field. He was awful most of the time last week.

          The optimist in me, next year we have Lenton (unproven, but was winning the battle from what I saw) and Stewart. Maybe some freshman as well.

          Yep. That Vandy deep ball I 100% believe he could have got by laying out. I think he wants the catch and run more than just getting the catch by any means necessary.

          Serious? Look at his pass chart I do for every game. He far and away throws screens/swings at at least a 4 to 1 clip on homerun balls. Hitch and slants aren't as high a ratio, but a lot shorter. I can only think of 3-4 balls at most of 19 he threw deep against UGA. One was the TD.

            The more I think of Franks needing to be a leader in this game for us to win, the more I'm thinking give the rock to our RB corps. Run over Mizzou eat clock, mix in a few safe passes and play gut-level SEC football today. Wear 'em out and dominate in the 4th. We can't fix Franks so take the other tack.

              Our run game is definitely our strength. From what I've read, though, run defense is Mizzou's. They held Kentucky's Snell to 67 yards/3.53 avg per carry, and lost by 1 in the final seconds. Snell ran for 175 yards/6.48 avg per carry against us, and we lost by 9 (without Reese and Cece). We can win this game, but we'll be challenged. I say, pound the rock using all three of our backs, and Franks has to step up, as does our secondary. Go Gators!
