Miracle in San Diego
Posted 27 November 2012 - 10:07 AM
As you can see, there are 3 wrs lined up + Pitta in a two points position all going for streaks except Pitta who's going for a deep crossing route.
As Rice catches the football, there are 6 defenders potentially able to make the play before he reaches the mark.
As Ray reaches the 50 he decides to cut back to the other side. No other options (smart)
After the cut, looks like the 5 defenders in red are loosing their balance and are going to miss him, the only potential tackler suddenly becomes free safety Eric Weddle in blue.
At this point, looks like Eric Weddle took a great angle and that Cason in closing the outside which is going to stop us a couple of yards short. But here comes Q.

On this angle, we can see that Boldin's block actually took away two chargers defenders
I just wanted to share this with you guys in case some wanted to see it again or missed it or just wanted to see from thos angle.. If any of you would like to see some more plays like this, feel free to let me know.

If a tree falls down in the woods and no one is around to hear it, do the Steelers still suck?

" Torrey is waiting on his coffee up there." Haha. Good stuff. Torrey even admitted he didn't block anyone when interviewed.

It still looks to me, that if Jacoby was able to lay a block on #20, and Rice cut further to the outside, he likely would have been able to got for a touchdown.
Of course, whether or not Jacoby would have been able to perform a legal block (or even whether he was actually in a position to block) is up in the air, and hard to tell.

But here's a question.... I thought once they move the chains, the play can't be reviewed, because the have to go back and reset. I don't ever remember this happening in my 18 years of watching football. It ended up being a mood point, but what if they didn't get the chains right and ended up not giving the first down? We wouldn't have been able to review it a second time.

It really was a hell of a block by Q!! Talk about heads up... Without it, no first down and that's the rap with only 1 TO remaining.

If they didn't get the chains right and we didn't convert, the game would be over. It was within 2 minutes, so there's no possible coach's challenge and the booth won't review the same play 2 times.

Welcome! Great Post! Hopefully Torry will step up his blocking.
LMAO...he had no choice but to admit during the post game press conference he was hanging out. Jacoby was whistlin' too.

Why is it that Jacoby seems to be Wide Open? Rice is more reliable though, but we would have won if we threw it to Jacoby and we caught it.
We now have one ring for each middle finger
May shame rain down upon you from the heavens for the dastardly deed that hast been done!
