obviously a great call as it worked...looked like crabtree cleared out the defense for walker to come underneath...
smith puts pass where it has to be so walker doesnt have to break stride (I have seen many on this board who claim he has never hit a receiver in stride---untrue, though he hasnt done so consistently....he has been pretty good on the slant patterns this year, first time i can recall niners making much use of the pattern since owens)
gutsy call in that it would have been safer to call something where the receiver is in the end zone when the ball gets to him
looked like crabtree may have broken open in the corner of the end zone, as well
This has been brought up somewhere else. It was a great call and the right read by Smith. I actually think it was the design. Plus at the end of the day I'll take Walker wide open with a yard of space over crabtree in the back of the end zone. Percentages are much higher especially when you include trust and chemsitry. IT scored so it was the right play. Being decisive wins alot of battles.
I'm visiting a friend at Yale in New Haven , CT. We were at Buffalo Wild Wings and there were 6 other Niner fans there and a few Lions fans as well. Pretty sure we spilled all 6 beers on the table while celebrating after that touchdown... hell ya!
