Proper mechanics would have got him sandwiched and sacked for a 6-10 yard loss. He avoided the sack, avoided a big hit, got the ball out while still looking down field and avoiding all this pressure, found an open receiver for a TD.
Yet you still find flaw in this play? Be honest with yourself. You hate Teddy B and will hate him no matter what. You likely love A&M and won't enjoy any other scenario that doesn't have us with an Aggie in the first round (Matthews or John F). Derek Newton sucks, yes, but a 4th round pick (he was a 7th) would still be more than enough of an upgrade not to waste your most important pick in years.
As a UH alumni and proud Cougar I finally got my dream this year with Case Keenum as the starting QB of the Texans. I kind of wish I could have continued being naive at this point.
