08:08 AM ET 09.16 | John Brantley threw for 113 yards in Week 1, and 172 yards in Week 2. Some in Gators Nation may worry he's behind schedule (based on all those preseason expectations), but Brantley's coaches are not. "We've seen really good development over the course of two weeks," offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said. "He's done a great job, really worked hard. I just really like where he's headed now. I like his mind set. ... You can see the growth. We're really happy about that. That's what we're striving for with the whole offense."

I think he'll throw for about 900 against the Vols this week.

But, considering they'll screw up the exchange at centre at least 10 times, those 900 yards will be negated and in the end, he'll end up throwing for 206 yards.

Nothing like living under a huge shadow that will just not go away.

I am more worried about the Gator LBs than the offense particularly the shotgun snap. Pouncey is a stud and now has the snap thing figured out. Out of the LBs, only AJ Jones seems to making every tackle and coverage play, the others are missing tackles or coverage assignments.

Kind of a strange picture choice for a thread about improved QB play. Fail again interns.

Nothing like getting rid of Cam Newton when he would have been a perfect transition from Tebow. Im a diehard gator fan, but I think Cam should have been given a suspension, not cut. the coaching staff wasnt thinking about the future

Thats a bunch of negative yardage.

Anytime I watched the games all the talking heads were talking about were the exchanges from centre and how they weren't happening. I assumed that Fla didn't have one positive play from scrimmage and all the scoring was by their defense.

The first game was brutal to be in the stands. Not only the shotgun snap, there were a lot of fumbles as well.

Demps did have a long TD run that sealed the game.

Johnny B will do just fine. I don't think Cam would be the same player that he is today without that wake up call.

No bad snaps against USF. Pretty sure that nightmare is over. Now, can we get pressure on a QB without blitzing 6 guys? TBD

Agreed. Brantley has improved so much that he can now handle getting crushed by opponents much better.

It wasn't the coaching staffs choice to steal laptops. Cam blew it. He moved on, we should too.

Gator quad!

how the he!! can he be behind expectations when he's played 2 games this season? What did they expect, he would just walk onto the field and build on what T had done these last few years and light up the offense throwing for 300 yards per.

Looking at that silly NHL video at the top right of this page ... I didn't realize Crosby was such a melon head. Face of the NHL? Ouch.

A lot Gator fans have been secretly wishing for the return of St. Danny. Some saw Johnny B as that return.

LBs and DEs. My two biggest concerns about this team.
