    Who was the receiver at the top of the screen on the last play?

    I'd love to know who that is.

    What an absolute horrible, horse *&$(*$ effort out of the guy.

    Watch it again and let me know if I saw it wrong.

    He kind of jogs out a couple yards past the 1st down marker and then saunters back towards the line of scrimmage.

    I don't know why I saw this, but it made me throw my remote on the replay.

    I realize AA was poor, but I think our receivers don't do him any favors. This was the most important offensive play of the game and this guy appeared to be going through the motions.

    VOMIT!

    Someone has to help me with this. I'd go back and watch it, but after I picked the remote up, I deleted the game immediately.

    Maybe I'm wrong and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. I hit the rewind twice and watched him both times, although I was out of my mind at that point.

    I may have seen something that wasn't there, although it looked pretty clear...again...I was at about 10% mental capacity at that point and as all of you would attest to, 100% ain't all that great.

    Nope your right...I just watched it again. I was amazed how bad of throw it was I didn't even look at the other stuff. If that is how hard you run a route on 4th down with under a minute to go then you need to take a seat. Then it gets compounded by the Arnaud not able to get anyone the ball.

    The throw was god awful, but our receivers do AA NO favors. Peyton Manning would struggle throwing to our receivers because they get no separation. Its puzzling how much they get caught up in press coverage, but they're all decent blockers on passes into the flats.

    so who was it? Not that he was the only one not always giving 100%, but when the game is on the line- come on man..

    I have noticed on most replays that AA has absolutely nobody to throw the ball to.... with the exception of a few plays.

    But if that's the case, then our OC MUST find a way to move the ball in other ways. We just have to.

    Cant tell. They have a close up of AA then they cut out just in time to see the play

    Re: Who was the receiver at the top of the screen on the last play?

    I guess I see the play differently than you do...I saw a receiver who was wide open on the sideline for a 1st down with a CB at least 5 yards behind him...he could've gotten the 1st down and step out of bounds.

    He was wide open...it looked like they were just trying to get the 1st down as 4 of the receivers turned around at the marker.

    What if AA exepected the receiver to actually be trying and threw the ball to where he should be if actually running.

    A lot of things about our receivers disgust me.

    All hype with no substance.

    After further review, I think it was Darius Reynolds, but am still not 100% sure.

    Great effort young man.

    With the game on the line, you chose not to try because I can only assume you were pouting like a baby. Whoever you are...TRANSFER to a school where this sort of thing is acceptable.

    Although, I don't know if PR will do anything about it.

    It's 4th down...the game is on the line...is it too much to ask for you to try??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Looked too tall to be DR, looked like Sed when I watched it again last night at 1 am. Don't see where he was loafing but I did see where he was a better option to throw too than the guy in the seam.

    You don't see where he was loafing?

    Really...it looked to you like he was trying to run a good route?
