Just found that somewhat ironic given that Spoon is the man who many coveted.


... Happy Brian Milne day.
 
Moore was on Graham at the LOS. Spoon was the LB that shifted right when Reggie went in motion, opening up the throwing lane for Drew.

Moore gave up the inside just before the snap, probably thinking Spoon was gonna stay in his original spot.

Greer did the same thing on thier TD. Only difference was our LB was already "in tight" and they didnt have to motion to shift our D.
 
Well son of a monkey's uncle.

Jim Henderson said it was against Spoon... Maybe it was Spoon who was the linebacker that slid over to open up the passing lane then.

Spoon was responsible for the lane it was thrown in...

JG said in his interview that all he had been doing this year was fades, that's why Moore gave up the inside.

JG- graham or greer ( both start with J - lol ) I am assuming you mean Graham tho.

Yeah, its all a chess match. What I am wondering is if Graham recognized that Moore was over-playing the fade and made the adjustment at the snap to take it inside ( Of course, Drew being Drew recognized it as well )

Sure would be nice to think that a ROOKIE could make that adjustment, in a tight game, big game, and make the play. :mwink:

Bolded for people who think reggie does not do anything for this team. the whole damn defense shifted to his side when he went in motion. the result of that motion? The go ahead TD for the win.

Let's say it was Spoon. You ever know of a defender who was covering a receiver that their man didn't score sometimes?

I'm as big a homer as anyone, but please, find something actually substantial to make a point about.
 
It was really both. Moore was lined up in man on Graham and Spoon had to make a run/pass read. Moore is useless as a defender if Graham runs that route so Spoon is responsible for the inside coverage. When Reggie motioned left he bit like a hungry bluegill and couldn't make it back to the play in time. You could tell that he read the play to Graham all the way, but he respected Reggie too much not to shadow him. Pretty high praise for Bush.

And FWIW, I wanted Spoon and still wish we could have gotten him. I think he could have been a starter for us.

I'm not a Reggie hater, but does this constitute a 12 million dollar pay check? Let's not pretend that some of the criticism that Reggie gets isn't deserved. I love Reggie, and hope he is here next year and I'm not calling for him to take a paycut or for the FO to trade him, but his production level needs to come up. He teased us last yr in the play offs, so we all know what he is capable of. Let's not put too much emphasis on his "decoy" status as we know what he is can do when his game is on. (yes, I know I ended the last two sentences with prepositions)
