it was a mystery to many of us why Hightower got so few snaps and Martell got so many.
Heard various explanations about packages and whatnot. First of all, I think we lost ourselves in that second half. We came out with one identity and, for multiple reasons, got scattered in that second half. So maybe that played a part. But, the ‘quick guy’ preference stood out.it was a mystery to many of us why Hightower got so few snaps and Martell got so many.
That’s a good question. My answer to someone who asked and threw back my obsession with separation/shuttle in my face was this: In college, does it matter as much? You can win in multiple ways in college. I strongly doubt CBs can hang with Hightower boxing them out whether he’s created separation or not, for example.Aside from Thomas and Osborn...can they get open?
Can I say the same thing about Harley? Good blocker and deserves to see the field, but gimme dat Osborne, JT, Hightower lineup with JT in the slot.I'm kind of starting to wonder... is Mark Pope gonna make an impact at Miami? Only two catches in his career so far...
Tate isn't the only "Quick/Small" WR that got tons of snaps that game. Not only that, the OP didn't even say Tate at all. Why so defensive?I knew this would trigger the Martell played 100 snaps crew and now we’re firing Enos if Tate plays too much again? Wowzers.
Hightower is the only one with a legit gripe IMO but again it was just 1 game, on a huge stage, not surprised they stuck with who they trusted most.
Manny said there will be more rotation going forward.
