1000% agreeVE obviously was afraid of getting flagged for blocking in the back and/or unnecessary roughness. They have pussified this game to the point where we can't make a block on a play like that. I rewound and watched that block, he tried to just push him out of bounds instead of hitting him and his hand just slipped off him. He was trying to play intelligently and not dumb. I won't hold that against him.
I am MUCH MORE distressed at 14 points scored by Washington off our two really stupid 4th down plays inside our own 30. YOU FUCKING PUNT no matter what metrics say! The fucking metrics don't take into account the full game situation, losing two o-linemen to injury, AND the metrics don't know what play you're gonna call. The metrics also dont account for the feel of the game, the momentum. There isn't a metric for "yeahbut what if we PASS on this down?..." You simply CAN'T BE MARRIED TO METRICS like MM obviously is. He sees on the card down and distance where it says go for it, and doesn't take into account field position, time in the game, momentum or the play call. OR the human factor.
The first one - 4th and about a foot at the 32? The score was managable, there was about 6 minutes left in the half? YOU FUCKING PUNT. And if you DO choose to go for it, it's a QUARTERBACK SNEAK WITH YOUR SIX FOOT FOUR QUARTERBACK! Not some half-baked pass play.
The second one was even more stupid... 4th and 10? At your own 30? And you try a convoluted fake punt that you give up 10 yards to get started?
This shit is stupid. MM is overcompensating for the rub that he was too conservative at GB.
DISCRETION IS THE BETTER PART OF VALOR YOU FUCKING FATASS! It's RIGHT to play aggressive but we play INTELLIGENTLY AGGRESSIVE! Not "damn the torpedoes" stupid aggressive.
Of course the thing snowballed, because our gaffes gave them momentum. Washington looked like our Dallas teams of the 90s feeding off bad decisions by the desperate opponent.
The second holding call made no sense as McLaurin ran into the safety and our DB ran into him...should have been incidentalGood point on the shit block by VE, especially the way the refs were calling that game . One sided call Washington . That one TD drive for them those 2 holding calls were bad , extremely bad.! then we get a 4th down no call for Lamb when he was not only held but interfered with too. It was a blatant witch hunt by the officials all game long in big situations .
Arm talent wise he is on another level. Unless he gets hurt has a chance to be the GOAT.Watching Mahomes run and juke players to make them miss looks like watching a grown ass man play with little kids
He’s just on another level
Barring some major injury this kid should be great for a long time. And he’s only going to get better the more he plays
