that is nice bonus change
Bad timing for him because it looks like he was about to reach the ball out for the touchdown. Hopefully he'll learn quickly that in the NFL ball security is more important than the extra yard. If he goes down short of the end zone it's a great gain, but he tries to do a little more and it hurts him.
That right there is why he hasn't played much.
Must have been exciting to be thisclose to his first NFL TD. Then the angst...
He looked pretty dejected walking back to the sideline, from most accounts, and I do feel bad for him being that close. Unfortunate ending (on a good defensive play) aside, the 25-yard run brought back some pretty nice memories of similar runs, many with excellent results.
Henne's endzone pass to...where was he throwing that, exactly? Not sure.
Brady picked off late to seal the W for Miami.
Not a good day for our guys.
anyone know if denard has recovered from the nerve problem he was dealing with?
It's obviously Dave Brandon's fault.
This is clearly because Hoke refuses to wear a headset.
If he isn't chased down the ball couldn't have been stripped. If you're Not For Long managment, which concerns you more, that Denard is being chased down or that he has fumbleitis?
I dont think he was chased down though. If you look at the clip, #23 takes a good angle and Denard basically cuts back into him trying to avoid the defender at the five yard line.
Hopefully people won't cancel their season tickets.
but he was just starting to extend the ball as he got near the goal line. Not that it makes it any better, but you do see that instinct kick in for a lot of players near the endzone-- the temptation to stick it out is just too great to overcome. I don't think it was a straight strip of the ball is my point.
Can we just take a moment to reflect on the fact that Chad Henne is regularly handing off to Denard Robinson in real NFL games?
Just seen this now and smiled. Won my FF championship by 1.7 points and had Bills D. A Jags touchdown there and I would of lost.
They are making fun of this over at elevenwarriors. I looked up stats for buckeyes in the NFL and the only one doing anything on offense right now is Brian Hartline.
You gotta carry the football in the outside arm. He took the handoff going to his right so wouldn't the natural tendancy be to carry the ball in his right hand? If so then he deliberately switched to his left. His ulnar nerve must still be giving him issues.
A surprising number of running backs don't make a conscious effort to put the ball in their outside arm. You'd think that that would be one of the first things they learn.
On Denard, I think by now it might just be a habit. If I recall, he usually carried the ball in his left hand even before the nerve injury.
Yea it could be habbit but as a right handed QB wouldn't he have held the ball in his right arm?
That being said he does appear to have bulked up a bit but it could also be the jaguar's jersey makes him look bigger.
Does this end up on C'mon Man?
