    1. I just thought it was real dumb by Henry to try and make a Willie Mays over the head interception when your are beaten and catching up, ball over your head, very difficult catch, and the opponent is facing it and has the better angle and chance to make the play. The obvious decision there was for him to just easily swat the ball away.

    2. My jaw dropped on how BAD of an angle Davis made to tackle Portis. Has Roy Williams been teaching the other safeties how to take pursuit angles?

    3. Roy Williams interception drop. It's a rare opportunity for an NFL safety to completely face the ball, have two hands on it, and then have the ball hit you on your face mask.

    4. 2 pt conversion.

    5. TO drop.

    6. FG block

    These are my major game changing plays. Any else?

    1. I think Roy W.'s pass interference was a good choice if your beat like we were on that play.

    A safety on a running plan is pretty sad.

    That made a difference for sure.

    that sad part of it was NOT a safety. They didn't even show a replay of it:bang2: :bang2: :bang2:

    Gurode letting Andre Carter free on the Terry Glenn reverse that knocked us out of field goal range. If Gurode blocks Carter there wasn't another Redskin within 20 yards of the ball. Colombo was down the field looking around for someone to block.

    That was on part to play design. AG was try to screen off the player but it developed to slowly.

    I agree and will add

    7) The reverse, which was the worst time to call that play and it cost us

    8) the 3rd and 1 quickcount that Barber got stopped. We ran it 5 times already and everyone knew where the ball was going. Cost us points

    9) our decision to NOT use our time outs to save some clock after the 2:00 minute warning. We should've had another 30 seconds or more at the end, which would've enabled us to put the ball in the endzone instead of settling for a fg. Or at least would've given us an extra point range fg attempt.

    10) BP coming back this year

    The reverse was a brillant playcall, and if players execute it was a touchdown. But fans could really care less about esoteric stuff like "execution". Playcalling is something they can get their hands around.

    I agree the safety was Julius rolling over a guy and then when the knee hit he made it out.

    I don't know you can know that for sure. Gurode looked like he expected the end to take himself out of the play and run down the line. Gurode didn't adjust. He seemed caught off guard and not athletic enough to adjust fast enough.

    You are right about this. All Gurode had to do was block him, but he decided to wall him off allowing Carter to get inside. So close.

    If you look at the play AG was probably coached to seal that end, trusting that Glenn would be about one or two step farther than he was. If that the case, the play goes for a lot of yards and AG looks good.
