That play was great. Morgan likely had the option to go a couple different ways on the that route depending on what the DB (Bailey) did.
Doubtful because if I recall correctly, Smith threw the ball before Morgan even made his break. It looked like a timed route in which Morgan was to comeback on the inside, which is what he did, but Smith threw the ball right towards Bailey and Morgan made a great play. If Morgan had options, then Smith shouldn't have fired the ball before he made a break because Morgan could have chosen to break outside and that would have resulted in a pick (maybe even a pick-6). I'm pretty sure it was a planned route though.
Just because it's an option route doesn't mean that you can hold teh ball until he makes the break, because it's already too late at that point. An option route doesn't mean that the WR has an option to run whatever route he wants, he has to read the defense and run the route that is required agaisnt that defense, and Smith had the same read to make. Also, if the trun as to the outside, then Morgan must have broke the laws of physics and teleported himself to the other side of bailey, because he was there just after turning around, he turned tot he inside. The play was great.
You are right,that was a great play by Smith and Morgan.Too bad some of these jackasses are so biased against Smith that their pride will not allow them to acknowledge it.Keep on speaking the truth Boomer,even if these biased fools are too blind to see.I keep seeing all this criticism of Smith,but last night Hill was also holding the ball too long and staring down receivers,but these guys that root for a single player over the team are never gonna admit it.If Hill had made the same play it would have been a brilliant masterpiece and something that Smith could never do.Sometimes I wonder if these guys can even see the truth,or if they are so blinded by hate for Smith that they would rather him fail than to have him be successful and help the team,which is the best possible scenario for the team.
