Originally posted by nvchamp9ers:Morgan was open and could have got out of bounds. BUT Davis was WIDE OPEN. if smith had the extra sec or room to step up and throw over the 3 defenders davis would have caught it with no one in front of him. At least in the vid it looked like it if i can get a second opinion.Originally posted by B650:Originally posted by nvchamp9ers:
They were plaaying what is traditonally referred to as the Bucs 10 defense, essentially it is if you throw short you are not getting the first down bc you have 4 guys thats whole job is to not drop deeper than 9 yds and 4 guys that are playing deep in and out. He went to the right guy the coverage was there and his pass was off, he read the defense right though.
Seemed like Morgan was a better choice, even if it doesn't result in a first-down. I'd take 9 yards and the clock stopped over an INT and game over.
it was 4th down
