Roh came through untouched on a stunt while Gordon blitzed but got around enough to put pressure on Scheelaase.  Mouton did an outstanding job of avoiding the cut block.


Great video!

Great view. 

You can see that Ryan Lankford is wide open on the play, and how well the pressure got to Steelhaase before he could get set to throw.

Is it strange that I just watched this video 10 straight times and got chills every time? Although I could probably watch anything in slow motion with that music playing and enjoy it.

QBs put in those situations (i.e. get in the endzone on this play or we lose) don't just close their eyes and toss a jumpball into the endzone before the pressure gets there.  There were 2-3 guys right in his face and it was pretty clear we brought the house - not gonna escape the pressure.  Yay for inexperience.

He hadn't been under pressure like that all day - so the instinct was to run to evade the rush then find a receiver - in this case the pressure was too much and he couldn't do it.  If he realized he wasn't going to be able to get away he surely would have thrown it.  When he did it was too late.

I'd like to see this sort of blitz more often on 3rd down.  Yes, we might give up a touchdown occasionally but it would be well worth it to get a few more stops per game.  I will gladly trade a quick score or two for more stops and a chance for some turnovers.  There is a reason that all great defenses are aggressive.

It was a great playcall with good execution and the style of the video was cool as were the effects BUT I couldn't keep myself from laughing at the juxtposition of the two.

The Illinois game was pure craziness.  Trying to take away a coherent emotional message from it is impossible.

This is an awesome video, but why cut it at the 11 second mark?  Why not show the awesome rush onto the field and the celebration.  I think that's the best part - looking at people celebrate and remembering what an amazingly emotional event that play was.
