Stupid question.

He has only played 2.5 games, came off of a very very bad illness just last week, and has to deal with double coverage all over the field.

Sammy will be fine. Eventually teams will have to start doubling Nuk and as soon as someone is stupid enough to do that, the Deuce will once again be loose.


Sammy just needs to get up to game speed

He'll be fine


So the ACC Network has an SEC game on in the background.***

Other than getting 100% healthy over a serious virus????

Ummm... no.


Actually, hope is doing well in the classroom too, and not being overly distracted by the pressures of being a competitive athlete.


Sammy has had no real opportunity to bust a game out yet...

he has played only close to 150 snaps this year including tonight against GT. Furman was his first game back, and yet still only got to play a half. FSU was actually where part of his illness was exacerbated. He and the coaching staff have admitted he was "roughed up" in that game. He also had very high creatinine levels in his blood test when they finally sent him to the hospital last Thursday. That is a big sign of kidney injury, likely sustained at the hands of the 'noles. He missed BC with an "abdominal virus" which should have read (virus, diarrhea, vomiting, kidney damage, loss of sleep, didn't eat for four days). Then tonight plays around 50 snaps at what looked like %70-75 on tv. He will enjoy the week off, get hydrated like he needs to, get rest, and get some much needed protein in him. Against VT he will be back to near %95. I say that because he still has played right at 65% of the possible snaps on the year, and he is legitimately still getting up to playing speed while dealing with his illness/injury.

I think he still had over 100 yards of total yards if you count returns. If he was in that bad a shape- I think it is amazing that he got that much. I hope his sickness is over with.


This week off

will be big for Sammy. When I heard he didn't eat for days, and was too sick to move, it's a bit early for Sammy Time. I believe the Va. Tech game will be his "coming out" party! Did anyone else watch Gameday? Some idiot Gamecock fan was waving a Sammy Potkins sign. You're playing the biggest game ever at Williams Brice against the number 5 team in the country, and that is all you got? Wow.


Agree. Week off will be huge for him.***

He didn't eat for 4 days......very I'll


Posted: Oct 7, 2012 8:46 AM
 

He'll get back to playing speed....thought he played his heart out.

No... that was a poor spot to air by ACCDN because the poor kid has barely played. He is just warming up this season! Wait!

GO TIGERS!


This guy, Sammy Watkins

with his body @ 45 to 65% has 100% more warrior heart than almost anyone else on the field! Anywhere.


The only fans that should be worried about Sammy

are the Jokie fans! Sammy puts up 150yards on them, write it down.
