next time after you make a catch and fall to the ground and aren't touched by anyone on the other team,

GET UP AND RUN THE FUCKING BALL INTO THE ENDZONE FOR A TD!!!

I'd prefer that he just looks over the correct shoulder.

Do we know that he was supposed to look over the other shoulder? Was it a corner route or straight route to the back of the EZone. That might have been a bad throw by Wentz. Of course it might have been one of those option situations where the QB and WR did not read the D the same way.

Even after the two costly early Ints they still were so close to winning that game.

This team reminds me of one of the early Vermeil teams. You could see that there was talent; they were just a little too immature and out of sync. They did not yet know how to finish out games and get a W.

I don't pretend to be a football genius, but it seems pretty clear that the ball should be thrown to where the defender is not. That would seem to be in the corner of the end zone when the receiver is running from the center of the field to the corner with the DB trailing. The throw was perfect, Mathews turned the wrong way and doesn't have the body control to adjust.

Pedey said in the post game presser that the play was not supposed to go to the outside.

That puts it on the kid.

The DB was on the inside. Why would he throw it there?

Exactly. Even if it was a bit more outside than desired, it made a hell of a lot more sense than the alternative.

So the coach puts it squarely on the kid and still it is not enough..too funny...does Pederson have a reason to lie about it?

Is this the same coach that sacrificed 3 points 2 times on 4th down? That's 6 points that would have won the game. Is this the same coach that is brand shiny new at calling plays?

Stop for a second and think about it. The defender is in the receiver's left rear pocket. The QB had recently thrown a game losing INT. He can throw it where the defender is and probably have it intercepted again and be ridiculed by people or, he can throw it where only his receiver can catch it.

Too funny indeed, like brain surgery or old bar maids. wink.gif

Exactly. This was on BOTH Wentz and Matthews. Wentz needs to put a little more air under the ball and Matthews has to know the defender is on his left and turn to his right.

But it's also on the coaching staff and other receivers. You KNEW they were going to blitz him. Someone has to recognize that (Wentz and receivers) and run routes to beat the blitz. None of that seemed to happen.

The play was designed for the ball to go directly over the def back into the outstretched hands of the WR.

It was not the option route where you do an out to where the def back isn't.

The play design wasn't great in that the easy throw is the one to the corner.

However, Matthews had the def beat by a stride and a good throw is a win.

Pedey said they practice that particular play for the red zone often in practice.

That one is on the Kid.
