Re: Dutch's Mock Draft v1.0
In the 4th, UT had the ball at the OSU 5 but failed to score in 4 downs.
OSU got the ball back at their 1/2 yd line.
After a run that went nowhere, Weeden attempted a pass instead of throwing the ball away (he had the chance to). The pass was terrible (you should be able to see it on ESPN highlights) it was easily intercepted and returned for a TD. Luckily for OSU, Weeden stepped out of bound for a safety.
This play was also documented on Gruden's QB Camp as a double whammy, LOL! Gruden really put it to Weeden on this one.
UT still trailed 38-26 (it could have been 35-31 without the FG and a pick-six here).
OSU forced another 3 and out.
Then Weeden returned the favor.
What's worse, on 3rd and 11, Weeden stared down the receiver and was almost picked off by the safety #28, who promptly dropped the ball. That was a sure INT as there's one. It had strong possibility for a TD return as well.
Yah, I would say Weeden tried very hard to give the game away despite what the stat lines showed.
With less than 5 mins to go, the Horns were moving the ball when David Ash was sacked and fumbled the ball; OSU recovered.
They basically ran out the clock afterward.
No, Weeden didn't play decent; he played very poorly, IMHO.
