That's bad, I don't care how you slice it!
Special teams good? Did you no t see Ginn get 0 yards on a kickoff because he ran east/west instead of north/south.
Or how about nedney having to make a tackle on the second kickoff? Special teams sucked.
Oh, and T. brown missing a tackle that allowed a 20+ yard punt return?
How about our punt that he had a chance to down on the 1 but instead stood there and watched it bounce onto the goal line? I was 15yards from that play. He had plenty of time to grab it after the first bounce but he looked like he thought it would bounce the other way.
I will say that A Smith played very well in the first quarter, and definitely sucked after that.
The 4th down drop by Norris wasn't his fault. The ball was thrown OK. Norris stumbled as he turned, then looked ridiculous as he flopped to the ground while the ball went through his arms. I was 15 yards from that one too.
The first pick was all on Crabtree. He was looking to turn it upfield before he caught the ball. The second appeared to be on Smith, but it sounds like Crab MAY have run the wrong route. Doesn't matter, because there were a couple others that SHOULD have been picked off.
V Davis had a decent game, but he did quit on that TE post because he saw the other safety coming to blow him up. Looked like he was afraid to get hit. If he doesn't slow down, and jumps for the ball it may be a completion instead of a near pick. Of course Davis may have gotten hurt as well. The throw was not only a tad too far, but probably was the wrong read as well.
If they keep playing like they did today, it is going to be a looooooong year.
Oh yeah. Our secondary is a joke!
