2012 Game Summaries
Week 8 - Like fellow-touchdown catcher Will Johnson, Pope is used predominantly in “jumbo” packages as an extra blocker. His status as a Todd Haley favorite isn’t because of his pass-catching prowess, but on a 4th-and-goal against a defense selling out for the run, he came open and caught the touchdown. His usage this season will be very infrequent.
Week 17 - Pope wasn't involved at all as a receiver until he caught the opening touchdown of the game off of play action at the goalline.
