I mean when ever I hear Alex talk like this....it really just makes me go .
What he really wanted to say was
"The game plan at the start of the game was terrible! Our plan was to keep running straight down the middle and hope that somehow, Gore breaks a long TD so Raye doesn't have to wake up and run a real offense"
Smith went on to say
"After the halftime break, we kept trying to distract Raye so we could call our own plays. It was working and we started moving the ball fine. Unfortunately he got back in time for our first 4th down play, and of course we didn't make it. He went on to take a nap, because the time change affected him. So we started scoring. But then after the GB punt that was downed on the 2 yard line, the fans woke Raye up. So of course that drive ended badly. After that we made sure the windows where closed and closed the door and put on some music by Hank Williams."
"That helped drown out the fan noise and as you saw, Raye stayed asleep and the offense scored. If only we could of stopped the Packers one more time, we could have won that game"
