anybody else see what I saw?

Hello to all my fellow Gators out there with the Orange & Blues. This is my first post, although I am opinionated and can foresee putting some thoughts out there in the future. By the way, I appreciate being able to read alligator army during this tough season and know I'm not the only one out here grieving. Thanx for your contributions. My purpose here today is to point out something that I feel has been costly to the Gators, and is 100% correctable. For the second straight game, Charlie Weis has gone to the well with Chris Rainey on too many consecutive plays, resulting in lost yardage and the ending of drives. Against Vandy, I was at the game, could see Rainey was gassed from 40 rows up. He had just completed several productive plays in a row, and was holding onto his thigh pads for support. Rather than look downfield or call on any one of several backs waiting patiently in the wings, he calls for #1 again. Lost yardage, drive killer. So, does Weis see this while breaking down film and make corrections to his approach? Apparently not, as he repeats his actions against SC. This is what really gets me hot! He had a chance to see it against Vandy, when it didn't cost us anything. But to come right back the next week, in a crucial junction in the game, and run Rainey on too many consecutive plays is ridiculous. If the back is built like a wide receiver, you cant call his number like he's an NFL running back. Why do we have that stable of backs? I am definitely part of the "Play Gillislee!" club, but really anyone fresh would do. It has been noted that Rainey missed the audible to switch the side of the play, possibly because he was trying to catch his breath! This isnt his fault, it is human nature, and poor player management. So, following play, screen pass to Rainey(loss of yards). I read where Koehne missed his block, but if Rainey is full go, he's pretty good in open space, 1 on 1. A gassed Rainey is easily dropped with one mitt from an opposing player. I think Charlie Weis needs to clock in. We know he is renowned for play calling against defenses, but his attention to detail has been lacking. Dont even get me started on pulling a warmed up Brisset in favor of a cold and confused Driskel @ LSU. That is a post for another day,

Please be kind and use good grammar.
