1. it was a 2nd down play where we needed 12 yards for a 1st. he got 11.
2. had it been a normal down and distance that IS a 1st down.
3. there were 3 defenders trying to prevent a 1st down and he had come back to the ball.
4. had he fought through 3 defenders to try and get 1 yard but fumbled we'd be yelling that he is a stupid id10t who should be shot to save the world of his dumb football genes ever passing to anyone else.
But I still don't know what any team saw Thursday night that would have made them comfortable with waiting a round or two for the offensive lineman they wanted. ---Todd McShay
We just converted half our LB to DL. We have a 30m starting DL, it better be pretty friggin good.
