A moment like last year during the game against the Saints. Now that was moment.
Think of all the moments we call "The Catch, 1, 2 , 3 and the Drive"
Sure you can throw for 500 yards and run for another 200 yards, but can you do it in the moment. This is that moment when you are inside the 20 and you need a touchdown. Its being served to him in silver platter. Its not like he only have 1 minute left and have to start at the 15.
Did you know during TD pass from Montana to Taylor, the coaching staff send in the wrong personel?
Brent Jones was suppose to be in there.
Montana seeing the mistake signaled Taylor to play the TE position. --- and history was made.
Montana to Clark. Another moment by 2 great players.
Randy Moss might be better than Jerry Rice - but Jerry had the moment.
Playing great when the moment matters. Marino is a HOF but never had the moment.
(My apologies to Dan Marino for comparing him to Kaep. I was just making a point)
I have to say I agree. We had 6 combacks last year with Smith at the helm, and our team rallying around him. he to score, and the D to hold. Fact of the matter is, we didnt beat the Ravens and had a lower score with Smith. And we had the better QB as many say, and with a larger score we still didnt beat the Ravens.
Everyone is nitpicking about the positives, but what positives. We dont show up half the game, then some want to crown us because of a good second half.
Kaep can ball, but his only 10 game experience showed the entire first half, and your lying to yourself if u say it didnt. I remember even susweel (not calling u out brotha, just saying) is a big Kaep supporter, and i laughed when even he said, kaep's playing like a bi(*&.
Overall, he didnt show up when it mattered most, as well as the rest of our offense. The outage was the xfactor for us, and had that not happened, they gained the momentum on the run back. So i mean how good did we play, if the outage never happened.
