The two delay of game penalties were absolutely brutal. That should NOT happen. Maybe it was rust, communication, i dunno but that's on him. Also, the ball looked force on the interception.
Sounds like the Delay of games were on Raye. Could be wrong though.
It was smart of Smith to take the penalty instead of wasting a TO. Which we really needed.
Of course the ball was forced! It was 4th and 10 and we NEEDED a first down. Better that he tried to force something past the marker instead of taking a sack or throwing the ball short. Go for the win.
Look Smith played exceptionally well, but he didn't play without fault. I knew i was gonna get some heat for my post.
And i understood the situation, but taking a delay of game penalty on 4th and 6 is inexcusable.
What i fault Smith for is not taking TO. Heck for all i know, it was probably due to lack of reps. I still think that with better clock management, we could have at least gotten a FG.
