I know that is just one play...but I just feel Alex leaves potential game changing plays on the field.
yeah i seen that. vd would have been wide open for a gain of like 20+... but this did happen on a play where we gained like 9 yards. if it came on a play where he held the ball too long and got sacked, i'd hold it against him.
don't get me wrong, I took that into consideration....but against better teams, we need to get every 1st down we can get....and if a potential big play is out there, we have to take advantage. Only because, although (I'm presuming) we got that first down that drive, against another tough team, we might not.
also, it keeps the defense worried about players running past them past 15 yards, and it might leave that underneath stuff more available...and maybe the receivers who catch it will have more room to run for important extra yards.
