I disagree with any hate of VD. First he wasn't penalized, Morgan was because his knees touched the ground. Second he's been playing well and he was excited. He didn't do anything excessive or over the top.
It was pretty obvious Vernon wanted people to come up and pretend to take pics of him. If he would have throw the ball to the ref and run off the field to high fives and chest bumps like he has done the previous times this year, his team mates wouldn't have been in position to be called for excessive celebration.
That's why I blame Vernon even though the call went against 84.
your blaming the reason we lost on a celebration that he didn't get penalized for? Seriously?
You argue that he wanted other people to join him? How the hell do you know what his intentions were? He didn't do anything wrong, his teamate took it too far. Yet you blame his teamate taking it too far on Davis? Are you f**king serious?
Lets take this further....like another poster said even if there was no penalty, it's still a 48 yarder which is within an nfl kickers range.
We lost by 4 points. Pretty sure we wouldn't have won even with 3 less points even if the kicker had missed the 48 yarder.
Furthermore, what about the offensive play calling? Putting a goose egg up during the second half is certainly not acceptable.
While were at it, why not blame Spencer for not covering that touchdown pass? (I'm not saying it was his fault, it was a well designed and executed trick play). Hell there are many little things we could point out like that.
Yet you blame Vernon for doing something which might
have caused Morgan to go overboard, which might
have given them 3 points, which still wouldn't have gotten us the lead, which had absokutely nothing to do with an absolutely atttrocious game plan.
