    Again... its the CENTER who is the receiver.

    How many thin tall Centers do we have on the team?

    Not only did you hear it but you saw it, too. For some reason you are in denial. Or just trying to stir up stuff here. If so, that's not exactly an original strategy on your part. Nice talking with you.

    yes, I am shocked. I really am. Sorry if I upset you for asking for clarity on that fake punt play. not stirring anything up.

    Powell as the center would give it away that it was definitely going to be a pass.

    It didn't need to be the center.

    So someone eligible but not the center... Like someone that would be covered by a defender?

    Good idea.

    I thought it was a good playcall. Just disappointed it took us that long to try and win the game.

    Yeah, the defensive players were laughing at Orr. It's not often that you see Leon get up like that. I laughed after my initial rant for the incomplete pass, but the I was saying "I can't believe Leon has ups like that.."

    What does that hurt? They have to stay loose while they are playing. It's not as if the defense stopped playing because they joked a bit while on the bench.

    You're acting as if a fake pass is always to the center. Have you ever seen that before? Powell is a mismatch. He is a freak. We should have thrown it to him.

    Orr is a freak too. Tall, mismatch for anyone as far as size goes and he played TE in high school. He has very good hands. It was a good play to the right person.

    Good call, bad execution. No point in punting, offense wasn't going to score unless Carolina fumbled the punt. Surprised we didn't try a few more trick plays.

    Great play call. But why not Westbrook or another TE to run the route? People who practice running routes and catching the ball countless times every day. I doubt USC would alert on any of our TE's at center.
    Even knowing Orr played TE in high school, that was a long time ago. Add the game on the line + 80 whatever thousand fans screaming their heads off and I say it again, under that stress, asking a D-linemen to run that route and come up with a difficult catch is very low percentage. Most linemen who catch TD's or two point conversions on tackle eligible plays run a simple 4 or 5 yd turnaround. This play was far more difficult than that.

    Good play calls work. It was not a good play call.
