Yet Another Football Video....

Matthew asked for another one so here it is. This is a 4th down play again towards the end part of the game. We're just about on our one yard line with Nate as the QB. On this play I ran a straight go rout while you can see Michael is running a slant towards the first down marker. Unfortunately - the pressure (in the form of Ryan) gets to Nate and he is forced to throw the ball up for grabs. This is where the play gets interesting. Josh in an attempt to get an interception jumps and knocks the ball down in front of Peter waiting for the interception also (I had gotten past both of them). Not much for stats but the smart thing to do (if he was really trying to knock it down) - if one of them had actually made the interception they would have had the ball at the 50 yard line instead of our 5. Also strange things like, uumm, fumbles(think Chargers...) can happen also...

On my team, catching the ball after the snap was almost as difficult as receiving it in the field ;-).

I don't think Ryan waited till 5-thousand to rush.... Oh yeah... we were playing 3 thousand...

Thanks for the video. It's to bad the whole game wasn't filmed from a helicopter. I love watching the routes of each person. There were a lot of people open if the QB had noticed, but as he pointed out had a problem just recieving the snap. ;-)

What a great day!
