    Because he's a 19 year-old young man who got caught up in the moment? I don't think he did it out of arrogance or being a bad teammate. It was an obvious mistake, but I think you're assigning motives to it that don't seem to jibe with what we know about DAT and his demeanor. The guy goes fishing to relax, for Pete's sake.

    Very possible. I need to get over myself, I know, but damn that really hurt.

    People still rip on Cliffy for dropping that pass, and I've defended his ass on it every time, so I know the other end of this argument.

    A hanging Curveball in Baseball your eyes get HUGE and you swing for a 900 foot home run and comepletely whiff, a gimme Layup in Basketball, that Denver LB who dropped a Pick 6 on Thursday night etc etc. Sometimes you get so excited by something in that moment, that you dont think at all, and forget basics.. especially when its not something thats 2nd nature to you.

    I'd venture to guess that its not 2nd nature for DAT to not be the one busting the big play and having to be the one doing the dirty work. He forgot a basic necessity though for sure. But a reflection on him? unlikely imo.

    I will say this: that he tried to block for Mariota last week has softened me on him a lot.

    Eh, I was frustrated too, but I don't think it was arrogance or selfishness. I just think he zoned out. He wasn't in the moment. He didn't realize that someone was closing in (possibly because he's so used to just blowing everyone away when he runs.)

    Last week he ALMOST did the same thing, and only at the last moment did he wake up and go, "holy shit someone is about to catch him." I really don't think it's on purpose. I think the kid just kinda lost track of what he was doing. Guys like Huff block for DAT all the time. It's part of their game. It's part of how the team trains them. DAT might not be part of that training, I don't know. I just don't blame him after the fact. The whole team was disappointing in that Stanford game.

    I would have a very similar list, but Joey Harrington is still my favorite QB. The dude was so much fun to watch.

    I think our best secondary was Bauman and Steve Smith.
