Run-Pass Option Play to T. Gabriel


Recommended Posts

How many of you were terrified when the ball bounced off of Gabriel? :lol::lol: I used to hate Smittyball and respect how Shanny still tries to keep his foot on the gas pedal, but every now and then, I think "just run the freaking ball."  That could have been catastrophic (i.e. the week 6 INT off of Julio's hands).  

But no guts, no glory!

Ha yeah he wasn't paying attention during the pre-snap read. It's the silent audible PFM and Gazoo talk about, but Gabriel was probably so pumped he didn't recognize it.

Two of matts touchdown passes were RPO's. The first to Julio and the last fade to Sanu. It's especially clear on the fade to Sanu. Look at the line and freeman.

the line fired off to run block and Free charged forward expecting the handoff. Matt just saw something he liked, picked it up and threw it.

Good call. I like the option plays. It's like Kyle's "RG3 wrinkle" ready made for a QB like Ryan. 

Could have been a huge play if Gabe noticed the box. Could have also been a huge play if that's DB caught that deflection.
