Love it! But there is a big difference here...Montana is already looking and leaning to throw to his right and therefore, was easily able to roll right (the best in the game...ever). Had the pressure come from the same side as he was trying to throw (like Alex's sack), he probably would have been sacked. He also had a short throw compared to Alex's (cross-body to the left downfield) AND had two options to pass too! Looks like the WR made one hell of a catch too; doubt anyone on our team could catch a strike like that.
Plus its Montana...come on. Be fair at least. LOL. He also totally missed the wide open WR on the first strike to the same spot. THAT GUY SUCKS!!!!!
For the record though, you are right...quick-strikes like this used to be a staple of the WCO and we need to bring this back. Alex and Crabtree are EXCELLENT on quick slants. The quick WR screen is effective. But these plays are too rare in our play-calling IMHO.
