It depends on how much effort it took the WR to get the ball to their hands. This shouldn't be this difficult of a concept.

I've heard 10X as much squawking about LT than all of them combined.
I'm not sold on that just yet. Defense was their big question and concern this off season. They were porous last year and were very concerned about their D line this year. I think UF's offensive is terrible.
Just as much FL O as UM D. Didn't look good last week either.
He's really good when his surrounding cast is playing well (duh). He's also somewhat raw, makes some mistakes, and his form breaks down when the talent around him isn't playing up to par. Obviously, he has the ability to be all world if the people around him actually catch the ball, and finish their routes, yet it makes him look really bad when everyone else doesn't play well. And it seems he lets that get to him more than it maybe should. I think that he lets poor performance get to him a bit more than maybe it should. Not horribly, but enough that fans - who also want perfection - get frustrated.
I don't think (many) really think that Leal has the higher upside, but there is a lot of frustration when the entire passing game completely breaks down like in the Bama game, and we all understand that we really are blessed with what is likely to be a very good backup QB. If our WRs aren't playing well, I don't think that Leal is going to make many, if any, more passes than LT. What I think some people wonder - and 'possibly' rightly - is whether Leal would throw less picks in those situations.
Well I watched the game a second time. Basically it is what it is. Logan has some talent, but also has flaws. He can make a really nice throw. But its also clear that his timing and his placement is also off on other throws.
The receivers showed some glimpses of improvement this week, but also continued to drop some passes. I liked the fact that there were a couple of nice grabs against Western Carolina. But the passing game for both Thomas and the receivers remains a work in progress.
The good news is that Tech's rushing attack looks to be resurgent. Edmunds wasn't quite as strong. But in the right circumstance, you have to feel good about handing the ball off to Edmunds, Coleman, Mangus or Caleb. Caleb in fact is interesting. He's got skillz and could ultimately be the man.
