It was a relatively quiet morning in what is likely to be a relatively quiet week in College Park.

Ralph Friedgen didn’t field many questions, but he did have a snippet while talking about quarterbacks having a connection with their wideouts that was interesting.


“They also get comfortable with who makes plays and who makes catches,” Friedgen said. “That bails quarterbacks out, if a guy will make an outside-the-normal-routine catch. If they ahve their choice, they’re going to look to trhow to that guy, even when they’re probably not supposed to.”

Now, how many times have we heard that from the big fella over the last couple years?

One interesting thing about Saturday’s victory is that Chris Turner didn’t target anyone more than four times (Darrius Heyward-Bey and Dan Gronkowski), but five guys at least twice among his 19 pass attempts.

Obviously, Heyward-Bey is capable of those outside-the-norm catches. But if Saturday showed anything, it’s that Turner is at his most effective when he doesn’t dial in exclusively on the talented junior.
