Default Re: Ill Say It. Reed Looks Like Crap

In this case, Joe Mays is reading the RB, he should have shot that gap created by McClain taking that jab step to his right. He would have been on top of Charles, instead of getting washed out by the FB. He'd have seen Charles didn't have the ball & attacked the QB.

Reed is watching Charles as well. How's he supposed to know Mercilus was going to play patty cake with him? Had Reed played that gap, Charles would have scored a TD & we'd be blaming Reed anyway.

The big fail on this play, imo, is that Mercilus is playing soft. He should have attacked Smith. If he'd have pinned his ears back, Smith would have been sacked at the time he faked the phantom hand off.

The whole left side of that play....... smh.
The only problem with that analysis is that the safety is supposed to follow the RB.................IF he has the ball........

The whole left side of the D was "taken out" of the play.............Reed was "faked out" of the play........
