    Why don't we look for Collin Franklin more???

    the last two games they've thrown to him 2 times. Once was a touchdown, and yesterday a really good jumping catch.

    it is obvious he has the hands to catch most any ball thrown to him, but why dont we utilize him more often??? I can see if we are keeping him in to block, but opposing teams don't really see him as a threat yet so why doesn't arnaud look to him more?

    any thoughts.....

    btw sorry for putting "we" in the title. I don't like it when i refer to Arnaud as "we"

    We had only 2 catches by our tight ends. IMO, that shouldn't happen.

    Tight ends were a big part of the plan against A&M, and they were effective.

    Not sure why we went away from that yesterday.

    just saying the one time we did look for collin it was a big gain and he was relatively open, plus the throw wasn't the greatest and he made a great catch while getting hit. he is like an untapped oil well that needs to be used

    The way AA throws the ball high Sedrick the Leaper and Collin the Colossal are both good targets.

    Comical thread.

    Maybe your tight end could catch a pass if we didnt have to use them to block. Our tight ends in most games are just an extra lineman.

    Unless you guys are right and the coaches/players have just forgot to use the TE.

    In my opinion, Arnaud is very hot or really cold. Yesterday i felt that he was back to he ways of not checking down and was locking on. Ofcourse he had a tremendous amount of pressure in his face all day, which didnt help.

    We sent Tight ends out quite a bit early, but when it became apparent we needed them to block we had to keep them in.

    I think you answered your own question there.... He wasn't getting the time to go through progressions and the receivers were having a VERY tough time getting any seperation...

    Re: Why don't we look for Collin Franklin more???

    wasnt really a question to it, Just simply the facts, hes not checking down and hes not getting the best protection. For us to move the ball consistantly, BOTH have to improve. I was happy to see ARob get some VERY hard yards yesterday. JJ is still dinged up

    Franklin had a real nice catch in the first game to.

    Re: Why don't we look for Collin Franklin more???

    Have you heard anything more about Arnauds shoulder? I know they "claim" he is ok but I noticed alot of wincing after throws and it seems to bother him most on the follow through (why he would jerk it back). If thats true it could explain alot of the high throws...

    Except for the sure TD pass that hit him right on the hands in the breadbasket on the pass from Bates against Iowa. That was not a difficult catch and he absolutely botched it. I agree that we should utilize the TE more. Our OL certainly still has problems. We seemed to do better with Knapp at Center. Since his injuries and absence we have been hurting.

    you guys have short memories

    Franklin has dropped two touchdown passes. He dropped one at Baylor and one against Iowa.

    The tight ends have looked better lately, but early in the year they dropped balls and didn't get more than a yard or two after the catch.

    As for Arnaud, my goodness get real.

    Predictable play calling, plus no separation by receivers, plus defenders in your face all day equals below average play for almost any quarterback. For a reference watch Colt McCoy against Tech. I wonder why he didn't look so great? sarcasm

    Arnaud is the last of ISU's problems. The quarterback position is just the easiest for fans to point out because they miss all the other stuff going around.

    BTW CATCH THE BALL HOUSTON JONES!
