    Kennard Banks pick...

    I'm surprised there isn't a thread about this (although maybe there was on saturday, and I missed it). Obviously it wouldn't have changed the course of the game, but A) we got screwed, again, long and hard, and B) he made one hell of a play against the best receiver in the country (if its not Crabtree), with a damn cast on. It's plays like that that make me think if we improve on the line next year, the defense as a whole will really improve.

    I think if he DOESN"T have the cast he makes the pick easy...

    I was PO'd when I watched it live.

    Then I realized it really didn't matter. Great effort by KB though. Illustrates why we are happy to have him back on the field.

    if its not Crabtree
    Don't forget Missouri's receiver. He is actually faster than Crabtree.

    It was excellent defensive coverage, but I could agree with not over-ruling the call because it was too close to distinguish from "simultaneous catch" - and the rule states that goes to the offense.

    Regarding our D-Line, I've been making that same comment every years since 1978.

    Re: Kennard Banks pick...

    Right now my priority wide receiver picks if I was drafting:
    1. Crabtree
    2. Bryant
    3. Macklin
    4. Swift (maybe)
    5. Everyone else.

    Re: Kennard Banks pick...

    It was the right call. But I agree, if he has two good arms he makes that interception.
