People like to blame Clements or Roman on that Roddy White TD but really that was just unbelievable timing between Ryan and White. You can't beat the perfect throw and perfect route, and that's exactly what we saw on that play vs. the blitz. Roman wasn't exactly supposed to help on that play either as we were blitzing.
Looks to me that touchdown is all Clements fault. One on one. throw to the outside he might not have stopped the catch itself. He did however choose to instead of looking for the ball just jump out at it while keeping his eyes on White. at most the way the play was designed it shoulda been an 8 yard catch and a first down. Clements just plain messed up.
exactly, its a bad play on clements part, doesnt make him a bad player just means he had a bad play, its tough with the expectations of his contract thats he is gonna make every play, he hasnt been as dominate as i thought he would be but he has played pretty well at a posittion of need, willing tackler and the defence has improved since he first got here, he doesnt have to be great just fit within the team concepts and with him and shawntae i think we have 2 corners to match up with the bigger more physical wr's in the league
