    Minor point, but you could at least bold the offensive linemen who start and play all game. Believe me, Maurkice’s play is a lot more impressive than Tim Tebow’s “handoff”??? Are you kidding me? Pouncey plays the whole game blocking defensive linemen and you group him with the guys that don’t play? Tebow hands off and you give him a statline? Dude. not cool.

    • Brook- He’s grouped there because he does not produce statistics; it is not a reflection of his importance to his team. But that’s a good idea. I will bold them. You could be a little less antagonistic when making suggestions though.

    I love watching these guys do the chomp in the NFL!

  3. JayV says:

    I think Brandon James got into the game for Indy.

  4. Mike says:

    Adam, I think Harvey gave a Gator Chomp after his sack of Colt McCoy. I don’t know how you would check it, but it’s worth looking into.

    Great compilation of Gator stats. I enjoy reading this each week.

  5. Mike says:

    Well, I take it back. I found the video of his sack on and it was actually Mincey chomping at Harvey after Harvey sacked McCoy.

  6. SC Gator says:

    The Chomp-o-Meter cracks me up every time, but especially with the addition of the on behalf of/with section.

  7. Mr2Bits says:

    I think you should allow me to win the next caption contest just because I allow your site to touch my IP. I’ve seen the winners submissions and ARE YOU KIDDING me? What a joke. At least make an effort to appreciate me. Like totally not cool.


  8. Mr2Bits says:

    Figured while everyone else was giving you operational suggestions. Just poking fun of Brook’s submission.
