    Two of Jantz's picks

    Sorry if already posted, lots of stuff to get through yet...

    Two weren't his fault. The first, Darks should have come back to the ball. He stood there and watched the ball get picked. The second, you can't blame the QB when the ball hits the receiver right in the hands. The other was just a great defensive play.

    I think if Steele's mobility hadn't been affected by his minor injury we'd have run away with this game. He had to become a pure pocket passer last night and that is not his style.

    Rhoads said DD didn't even see the ball on that first interception.

    Re: Two of Jantz's picks

    One thing that I noticed is that Jantz threw the ball across the field from hash mark to the other side too often. That allows the ball to stay in the air longer and the defense to close and make a play on it. Just my opinion. Even though he still looks good out there.

    Yeah, that was my impression. I don't think he knew it was coming his way at all. The tipped INT was thrown behind the TE, but still a catchable ball.

    Might be something that teammates have to get used to, as Steele will attempt some passes that really thread the needle, so they have to be ready even if they don't feel like they are open.

    Re: Two of Jantz's picks

    Jantz just feels like he needs to turn the ball over a couple times a game to make it fair for the other team.

    Re: Two of Jantz's picks

    First was underthrown, but the receiver should have come back, still underthrown though. Probably should have had another one though on that deep ball to Reynolds, Money stopped and outplayed the DB for it, but it was a poorly thrown ball as well.

    Re: Two of Jantz's picks

    That first pic was Jantz's fault not Darks'. The ball was well underthrown and Darks' momentum was carrying him away irregardless if he saw it or not. He had his defender beat, and a good throw would've been a reception and a perfect throw might've been a TD.

    The one on the sideline was just a great defensive play (but risky throw). The one to the TE was a little behind him, but should've been caught + a little bad luck.

    hell of a job rebounding!

    Second was great defense but still his fault in a way. Third one hit the hands...that one was no excuse for the receiver (I don't remember who it was).

    Re: Two of Jantz's picks

    The first was absolutely on Jantz. Darks had his man beat and Steele under threw the ball. The deep ball to Money Reynolds that left to our first TD should have been a pick too, Reynolds just made a play.

    It was a TE. Can't remember if it was Hammerschidt or a different one. Hit the hands and bounced out.

    Re: Two of Jantz's picks

    maybe not Jantz fault completely, but the throws could have been better and they were in traffic. those passes needed to thread a needle.... he almost did it. Or others were open, and Im not sure about that as it was hard to see the entire field with the camera angles.

    Give the UConn linebacker some credit on the third INT. The ball may have hit Hammer in the hands, but the defender punched up in between his hands as soon as the ball got there. That's just a good defensive play & I'm not going to fault either Steele or Kurt on that kind of play.

    Can we just skip the 1st and possibly 2nd quarters of our games from now on?

    agreed..... the receivers did not help last night on the picks, but helped a freaking ton on every other pass. they were great. funny, steele has a lot of picks, but i always love the guy hes throwing too, i mean they seem to be open.
