Auburn's All Time Passing Game

I wonder will we run PA pass for the first play against GS or just a simple screen? Or will we just run as usual. Kind of a prelude to the annual first play thread.

It will be the RB up the middle, just to pi$$ off the fan base.

Oh what a surprise.... Vanderbilt 0 :cool:

Surprised Cutler didn't cross the threshold. Dude was legit in college. Was one total BS celebration call away from getting a shot at a 2-pt conversion to knock off urbz meyer and UF at their house.

Cutler was the real deal, but the athletes around him?  He had one receiver, weak O-Line running backs everything else.

I actually hope we show Clemson nothing and proceed with our 2015 and 2016 game plans of just forcing the ball up the gut. 2nd and 9 and 3rd and 7 shouldn't be an issue for us against GSU since our QB play and passing game should be improved and against lower competition shouldn't problematic for us (hopefully our OL will provide bigger gains for our backs though). And then we can unleash the beast for week 2 and Clemson has no idea what just hit them in the mouth.

Agreed.  Don't break any tendencies the first game.  CCL should even collaborate with Lashlee on the game plan and let GM call plays for the first game.  Then bring out the real deal against Clemson. (But first find out which offense their DC googled before game planning against us)

We have had some very-good to great Qbs in our history but man outside of Beasley our WR history is PUTRID! Have we ever had a NFL Pro Bowl WR from AU?

Frank Sanders was probably closest?

when he was on the cardinals right? That would be my best guess as well loof! Man just glancing over his college stats it is nuts he never had a 1k yard season either! And he had a pass first coach as his HC back then.

Red Phillips is the only Auburn receiver to ever make the Pro Bowl. Also, Terry Beasley and Ronney Daniels are the only Tiger receivers to ever produce a 1,000 yard season. Darvin Adams had back to back 950+ yard seasons in 2009 and 2010 but that's about the closest anyone's come since 1999. Darvin Adams and Terry Beasley are also the only two Tigers with 10 or more TD catches in one season.
