It was Raye. Forget the last play. A miracle play pulled off by a great player. Hey, we're accustomed to those kind of plays (see Catch-I, Catch-II). The problem is that we shouldve never been in that spot to begin with.
Hill showed, yet again, that he can lead this offense if given the right plays to work with. He DOES get his receivers involved, he DOES pick apart defenses, and he DOES make plays under distress. Too bad Raye has seen this in 2 STRAIGHT GAMES and still opted to go for the vanilla run, run, pass, punt option.
That last drive....I know the safe way was to let Coffee run it and force the Vikes to use up their TOs, but comeon. Give your QB a chance. At least call a bootleg, and tell him to pass ONLY if it's wide open or just take a sack. You cannot expect your rookie RB to go into a loud stadium and gut his way to a first. Especially when your QB has just thrown 5/5 89 yards and a TD and has the defense on their heels.
Raye failed yet again...........and although his conservative garbage works against pathetic teams, good teams will expose you ala Vikings did today.
