Default Texans Defense vs. Niners

1st QUARTER

1st Quarter

San Francisco 49ers at 12:45
1-10-SF 20 (12:45) S.Hill sacked at SF 14 for -6 yards (M.Williams).
Mario was uncovered. Still, he was too quick for Hill.

2-16-SF 14 (12:17) (Shotgun) F.Gore up the middle to SF 16 for 2 yards (A.Okoye, Ryans, B.Cushing)
Good job by Okoye occupying two defenders at the nose.
Good job by A. Smith setting one edge.
This left Ryans, as well was Diles, unblocked.

3-14-SF 16 (11:34) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass incomplete short right to V.Davis.
A quick screen pass to Davis, who took a peek and saw #59 coming.
He cowardly dropped the ball, LOL!

PUNT

.........

San Francisco 49ers at 8:00
1-10-SF 14 (8:00) S.Hill pass short right to F.Gore pushed ob at SF 20 for 6 yards (B.Cushing).
Cushing needs to attack the receiver out of the backfield,
and not just let him those easy yards.
He had plenty of support in the back.

2-4-SF 20 (7:35) F.Gore left guard to SF 21 for 1 yard (D.Ryans).
Good job by Okoye and A. Smith clogging up the middle.
Good job by Diles setting the edge.
Ryans was unblocked.

3-3-SF 21 (6:55) S.Hill pass incomplete short left to V.Davis (G.Quin).
Quick pass. Great play by Quin.

PUNT

........

San Francisco 49ers at 2:27, (1st play from scrimmage 2:19)
1-10-SF 25 (2:19) F.Gore right tackle to SF 26 for 1 yard (D.Ryans, B.Cushing).
Good job by the entire D-line.

2-9-SF 26 (1:34) S.Hill sacked at SF 19 for -7 yards (J.Zgonina).
Texans showed a 7-man blitz but came in with a 5-man zone dog.
Good push by the 3 D-linemen & Ryans.
Diles was in on the blitz but didn't do anything except occupying the Center.
(A. Smith dropped back).
Zgonina beat his man and got to Hill in under 2 secs.

3-16-SF 19 (1:00) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass short right to M.Crabtree to SF 23 for 4 yards (G.Quin).
Quick swing pass to the right flat for Crabtree.
Great job by Quin avoiding his blocker.
Ryans was also there along with Wilson.

Have to spread the Rep. Keep this stuff coming though...

When you do the second half, I'm very interested in your take on Deljuan Robinson. I'm still baffled why he doesn't get in the game more. From my perspective, he's our best DT, still.

Nice breakdown. Look forward to the rest, especially something that may explain why mostly an ineffective 4 man rush chosen while still getting burned by pass on coverage.

I think it's because Zgonina has been playing well of late.
(And to think many of us, including myself, thought he should retire, LOL!
Even though I knew I wouldn't be surprised if he just kept chucking along.
He still looks like a young man in TC.)

And Cody seems to be able to occupy the double team.
I don't think it's due to Deljuan's playing poorly, just that he didn't excel enough to get more snaps.

I'll try to do the 2nd half tomorrow.
(Even though I basically had it all down in my head already!)

Default Re: Texans Defense vs. Niners

2nd QUARTER

San Francisco 49ers at 10:40
1-10-SF 20 (10:40) S.Hill pass short right to V.Davis to SF 26 for 6 yards (Z.Diles, E.Wilson).
Quick pass to Davis who ran an out route along the LOS.
Not much we can do here.

2-4-SF 26 (10:03) F.Gore left guard to SF 24 for -2 yards (M.Williams).
Good job by our NT (Cody or Zgonina?) holding up the double team at the POA.
Mario set the edge tightly.
A.Smith was unblocked and pursued from the back side, chasing Gore into Mario.

3-6-SF 24 (9:17) (Shotgun) PENALTY on SF-C.Rachal, False Start, 5 yards, enforced at SF 24 - No Play.

3-11-SF 19 (8:50) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass deep right to M.Crabtree pushed ob at SF 37 for 18 yards (J.Reeves) [A.Okoye].
Reeves got beat by an inside-outside move by Crabtree.
Okoye stunted all the way from LDT around the RG and got to Hill around the 2-1/2 sec mark.
QB Hit just after Hill got rid of the ball.

1-10-SF 37 (8:25) F.Gore left tackle to SF 42 for 5 yards (D.Ryans). Direct Snap to #21 Gore
Wild cat. D-line held up well. Gore's momentum was just too strong.

2-5-SF 42 (7:48) S.Hill pass short right to D.Walker to SF 44 for 2 yards (B.Pollard).
Texans blitzed 5.
Hill found the hot receiver TE Walker.
Good read by Pollard, good tackle.

3-3-SF 44 (7:03) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass incomplete short middle to I.Bruce.
Penalty on SF-I.Bruce, Offensive Pass Interference, declined.
Texans brought 7 to the LOS and blitzed 6.
Hill hurried the throw.

PUNT

........

San Francisco 49ers at 4:24
1-10-SF 20 (4:24) S.Hill pass short middle to F.Gore to SF 29 for 9 yards (D.Ryans, Z.Diles).
Demeco dropped back way too far.

2-1-SF 29 (3:49) G.Coffee up the middle to SF 31 for 2 yards (B.Cushing).
Diles and Mario set the edges.
91 and 92 Gzonina held up the middle well.

1-10-SF 31 (3:02) G.Coffee right guard to SF 32 for 1 yard (J.Zgonina, Z.Diles).
Good job by 92 and 91 in the middle again.

2-9-SF 32 (2:27) S.Hill pass incomplete deep left to I.Bruce.
PENALTY on HST-Du.Robinson, Defensive Pass Interference, 22 yards, enforced at SF 32 - No Play. X3
Questionable call.
Dunta was looking at the ball the whole time.

1-10-HST 46 (2:21) J.Morgan left end to HST 40 for 6 yards (B.Pollard).
Reverse. Finally, they saw the defense.
We've been sending one DE (usually A. Smith slanting in right behind the LOS toward the middle for the last few games.)
This time it was Bulman. And the DE is always vulnerable against the reverse.
Somebody, like a safety or a CB, needs to be ready to fill the alley.
In this case, it was Pollard who flew up there,
yet Morgan still gained 6 yards.
It would have been a first down with Barber in there, IMO.

Two-Minute Warning
2-4-HST 40 (2:00) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass incomplete short right to M.Crabtree.
We blitzed 5 but never got close. The passing lane was wide open.
Luckily, Hill's pass was just wide.
Quin gave Crabtree all kind of cushion.

3-4-HST 40 (1:54) (Shotgun) S.Hill scrambles up the middle to HST 38 for 2 yards (C.Barwin).
Timeout #2 by SF at 01:36.
We blitzed 6.
Hill saw it and took off in about 1 sec.
Good job by Barwin to get off the LT and came back for the tackle.
This is the athletic ability and hip flexibility Barwin possesses.
Looks like a first down there to be had.
A first down would have put them in FG range!

4-2-HST 38 (1:36) (Shotgun) S.Hill pass incomplete short middle to I.Bruce (B.Cushing) [S.Cody].
We rushed only 4.
Cody looped around from RDT to the other side A gap, and had Hill wrapped up by the ankle.
He also brushed Hill's arm but wasn't able to pull it down.
Hill threw the ball desperately just before his knees hit the ground...
Straight at Cushing... who may have been a little surprised.
That could have been six.
PUNT

It just look like MANY of the Texans players took some naps here and there in the second half. None of the 3 units played as well as in the first half.
And it has nothing to do with Alex. (I don't think Shaun Hill played poorly either).

I haven't watched my DVR of the game yet, but the PI call on Dunta appeared obvious at the time and the replay. Dunta was basically holding on to Bruce in order to keep up with him.

He threw an arm bar when he turned to find the ball. It's a common DB tactic and one they get away with roughly 50/50. It just wasn't D-Robs turn.

Or, it was so obvious the referees couldn't help but throw the flag?

IIRC, wasn't there multiple flags thrown at him? I was calling it a PI before they even threw the flags it was so obvious.

Oh well, it didn't seem to hurt us at the time anyway.

I don't remember any flags being thrown until IB signaled that he wanted one after the play was over.

Default Re: Texans Defense vs. Niners

The flag wasn't thrown until IB asked for it.
It came from the guy in the end zone who was not in position to see it.

The side judge who ran after the play was in best position to see it.
He signaled an incomplete pass without hesitation.

Dunta never touched Isaac Bruce.
His left arm was down by his side.
His right arm never touched IB anywhere.
His body never touched IB anywhere.
It was a great play by Dunta.

Lousy call!

Watching the first VD TD I can't help but give a shake of my head, and a wag of my finger to Wilson for completely whiffing on the tackle on the 5 yard line.

That was ugly.

He made a willie veteran good move stepping inside and in front of Dunta.
Dunta was slowing down just a tad to time his jump.
Bruce knew he had no chance on the ball.
He can only bait the officials or Dunta for a PI call.

Default Re: Texans Defense vs. Niners

2nd HALF

K.Brown kicks 73 yards from HST 30 to SF -3. M.Robinson to SF 37 for 40 yards (J.Dreessen).

There was a guy #44 FB Norris (I believe) who shoved Barwin squarely in the back
on the 22yd line, right in front of the returner.
And NO CALL! GRRRRR!

San Francisco 49ers at 15:00, (1st play from scrimmage 14:49)

1-10-SF 37 (14:49) F.Gore right end to SF 35 for -2 yards (Du.Robinson).

Our front four from L to R (94, 91, 95, 90)
ZBS run weak side right.

94 slanted thru the RT, past the FB, forcing Gore to go wider right.
91 got ahead of the RG (all of our linemen went past the LOS) who went for the cut block as last resort and missed (or was shoved to the ground by his own man, either the C or the LG).
Okoye then combined with 59 to form a pair of plyers clamping from either side of the FB.
Gore was forced to turn back to his left.
It was a great cut (our front 7 now has all pursued to the left.)
Mario turned back quickly along with Pollard, they wouldn't let Gore turn upfield.
Gore tried to went wide left, but Dunta was right there for a 2yd TFL.

2-12-SF 35 (14:06) A.Smith pass short middle to M.Crabtree to HST 48 for 17 yards (E.Wilson).
Niners in straight I, TE strong left, slot right, split right.
Our front from L to R (90, 95, 91, 94) plus Cush strong side outside TE.

We blitzed 5 but didn't get there; the pass was off around the 2-1/2 sec mark.
Niners max-protect then release the RB at the last moment.
95 was able to push the C back some.
94 stunted around to the middle from RDE with the RG picking him up.
Cody used this action to shove the C to the ground, 6yd behind LOS, not quite far enough.

We dropped back into a 3-deep zone with the seam wide-open.
An easy 17-yd reception for Crabtree.


1-10-HST 48 (14:06) PENALTY on HST-S.Cody, Encroachment, 5 yards, enforced at HST 48 - No Play.


1-5-HST 43 (13:07) F.Gore left guard to HST 43 for no gain (S.Cody, B.Cushing).

Niners in straight I, TE strong R, slot left, split left.
Our front from L to R (93, 91, 95, 90) plus Cush strong side (our left) outside TE.

ZBS run weak side left.
93 Bulman was shoved to the ground by the TE a couple of yards on our side.
56 Cush pursued unblocked from the back side and joined in the tackle.
91 took on the combo block RT & RG
95 split the combo block C & LG and pushed the C into the running lane, 3 yd behind LOS
90 set the edge.
54 took on the leading FB right at the LOS and POA
95 slid over to make the tackle on Gore just behind the LOS, 56 joined him shortly.

Cody redeemed himself from the off-side infraction.

2-5-HST 43 (12:27) F.Gore left end to HST 34 for 9 yards (B.Cushing).

Niners in offset I left, TE strong R, slot left, split left.
Our front from L to R (93, 91, 95, 90) plus Cush strong side (our left) outside TE - Same as last play.
I.Bruce motioned from split keft to split right.

ZBS stretch run left.
Once again, 95 had advantage, pushing the C into the running lane.
LG pulled to the outside.
RT fired out and neutralized Diles 7yds beyond LOS.
RG fired out and neutralized Ryans at same level. Come on, guys!
Mario jumped over the FB's cut block, forcing Gore wide left, around the pulling LG.
Dunta came up and took a shot at Gore 2yd beyond the LOS but just missed.


31 got past the slot receiver (who might have gotten away with a hold).
Too bad, 93 pursued from the back side and kicked him in the heel,
forcing Pollard to loose balance temporarily.
He could have prevented the first down.

Cushing had to shift thru all the trash to get there to make the tackle.
54 & 59 had slowed Gore down enough by then.

1-10-HST 34 (11:40) A.Smith scrambles up the middle to HST 34 for no gain (D.Ryans).
PENALTY on HST-T.Bulman, Defensive Offside, 5 yards, enforced at HST 34 - No Play.


[i]1-5-HST 29 (11:08) A.Smith pass deep middle to V.Davis for 29 yards, TOUCHDOWN.[/I]

SF-V.Davis was injured during the play. His return is Probable.
Penalty on HST-Deljuan.Robinson, Defensive Offside, declined.

Deljuan came in and promptly committed off-side, LOL!

Niners in single back, double TE left, 2 receivers split wides on either side.

Our front 4 from L to R (90, 66, 92, 94) plus Diles weak side (our right).
Cushing at SAM, Demeco at WILL.
Quin at LCB, Dunta at RCB.
Pollard played up, almost as a 3rd LB.

Our D-formation was a 5-man blitz (with Diles), 5 middle zones and Wilson as lone safety.
Then our CBs would drop into a 3-deep zone (together with Wilson)
- from the shuffle so they can still see the play.

One receiver ran a go route (on Dunta);
the other (on Quin) a 5yd quick stop - he would be wide-open for a first down as a hot receiver since Quin had dropped deep.

The outside TE 46 Walker ran a go route, crossing Cushing on the inside.
Cush should have chucked him within the 5yd limit and followed him.
He did neither, forcing Wilson to get up on Walker, and therefore a tad late in coming back for help.

The inside TE (Davis) ran a corner route, heading toward the weak side pylon.
He past Demeco across the face (on Ryans' right).
Demeco might be thinking of a slant route, and was a little late in his turn.
That's all Davis needed.
Vernon Davis is very fast.
He ran a 4.38 at the combine in 06 (the fastest ever for a TE).
He's faster than many of our receivers!

Pollard was in a tough position.
He had to drop into his outside zone, guarding the outside receiver from a first down.
He also had to watch for the RB to see whether he would release.
If only Ryans had given Davis a chuck, Pollard would have had a little more time to turn around and help.

Dunta delivered a blow to Davis in his left rib (too bad, the ball is in the other arm),
then he slid to tackle the right ankle, stretching Davis almost into a split position.
(Davis was down for a while afterward.)

This slowed down Davis' momentum more than Wilson anticipated.
(I believe 99.99% of the safeties would see the same way.)
Wilson just missed Davis by just a little.
And he was going after the ball as well.
Nothing worked out! Including up front.

Diles got past the RB and would have gotten there in just a hair under 2-1/2 sec.
He was right there! If only Demeco had given Davis a chuck!
Or Cushing had given Walker a chuck and followed him!
Or if the RB was able to hold off Diles,
Pollard wouldn't have to worry about him releasing and could have concentrated solely on Davis.

Mario was slowed down just a hair due to the presence of the TE,
but he needed to be better than being taken out wide by the RT like that.
Deljuan couldn't do anything against the RG either.
92 & 94 pushed the combo blocks of the other 3 linemen.

Charged this one on Demeco.
But Cush failed his assignment even worse.

(He was looking at his man the whole way, but did not cover Walker, jogger, crawler, nor anybody for that matter!)
He took away Demeco's help (Wilson).


............

San Francisco 49ers at 7:54
1-10-SF 12 (7:54) F.Gore left guard to SF 15 for 3 yards (A.Smith).
ZBS run weak side left. They sure like to run weak side, don't they?
Okoye got a little penetration in the strong side B gap.
94 penetrated weak side C gap past the TE.
These action cut off the back side lane for Gore.

Mario set the edge on the LT
92 held off the combo block C & LG

This allowed 54 to meet the FB at the LOS but the FB won.
But at least we minimized their gain.

2-7-SF 15 (7:14) F.Gore left end pushed ob at SF 16 for 1 yard (J.Reeves).
Niners in straight I, double TE left, single wide right.
ZBS stretch run left.
Our front four from L to R (94, 92, 91, 90)
plus Cush between 91 & 90 and 35 outside the formation strong side.
Demeco came up the middle as the ball was snapped.
Diles on weak side.
We had 7 men on the line.
91 & 90 penetrated and forced Gore wide right for Reeves.
Pollard was also there for support.

3-6-SF 16 (7:14) (Shotgun) PENALTY on SF-A.Smith, Delay of Game, 5 yards, enforced at SF 16 - No Play.

3-11-SF 11 (6:16) (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short middle to V.Davis to SF 15 for 4 yards (D.Ryans) [A.Okoye].

Niners in shotgun spread, TE strong right.
Our front four from L to R (90, 94, 91, 98)
Nickel, Cover 2.
Cush on one slot, Quin on the other.
Demeco on the TE Davis.
Straight man coverage from a 5-2 zone look. (Probably better for us!?!)

We covered tight, Smith delivered the ball around the 2-1/2 sec mark.

90 stunted inside 94.
91 worked past the double team C & LG to the same side (strong side).

It's 2-1/2 sec, but still Alex had to get rid of the ball due to pressure coming.

..............

San Francisco 49ers at 3:24
1-10-SF 34 (3:24) A.Smith scrambles left end pushed ob at SF 45 for 11 yards (Z.Diles). R7
Our front four from L to R (94, 91, 95, 90)
We rushed 4.
Smith penetrated to the inside;
Alex stepped up to the outside (ya' hear that Schaub?) with Gore releasing up that side.
Smith had a hand on Alex.
Schaub would have been a dead duck, not because of his immobility, but due to his indecisiveness!
Good job by 95 & 91.
Too bad, the momentum sent Alex to the other side.
Broken play, OK, Alex has something over Shaun Hill!
11yd gain.

1-10-SF 45 (2:54) F.Gore up the middle to HST 48 for 7 yards (Z.Diles, J.Reeves).
Our front four from L to R (90, 92, 91, 94)
We continue to dominate the LOS;
However...
59 just missed a tackle behind the LOS
94 overpursued a little back to the inside.
56 seems to have lost some of his intensity.
It took 4 guys to bring down Gore.
31, 26, 54, 35

2-3-HST 48 (2:15) F.Gore up the middle to HST 44 for 4 yards (B.Cushing, M.Williams). Direct Snap to #21 Gore R8
Our front four from L to R (94, 95, 91, 90)
Wild cat. Gore squeezed thru the tinest of a hole.

1-10-HST 44 (1:34) A.Smith pass deep middle to M.Crabtree to HST 27 for 17 yards (Z.Diles).
PENALTY on SF-J.Morgan, Illegal Motion, 5 yards, enforced at HST 44 - No Play.

Crabtree kept on abusing Reeves, but Reeves' stats ain't hurt by this penalty, LOL!

1-15-HST 49 (1:07) A.Smith pass short left to V.Davis to HST 41 for 8 yards (B.Cushing). HST-T.Bulman was
injured during the play.

Our front four from L to R (90, 92, 66, 93?)

Too much time for Alex.
The pass went off in 2-1/2 sec but nobody was near him.
90, 66, and 93 was in one-on-one.
93 was working on the LT when the RB went out and blew him to the ground.
To add insult to injury, 93 was declared injured during the play, LOL!
(He just got his wind knock down by Gore.)

Texans in base 4-3, Cover 2.
Soft zone again!
I really think our LBs are better off in man coverage with help from the safeties.

2-7-HST 41 (:31) A.Smith pass short right to I.Bruce to HST 40 for 1 yard (Z.Diles)
Our front four from L to R (94, 92, 91, 90)
Quick pass, quick reaction by Diles. Dunta was also right there.

San Francisco 49ers continued.

3-6-HST 40 (15:00) (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short right to M.Crabtree to HST 34 for 6 yards (J.Reeves, B.Pollard). P9
Our front four from L to R (98, 91, 94, 90)
Texans in nickel.
6-man blitz against 6 and a 1/2 blocker (one RB chip blocked and released quickly.)
Pass off in just under 2 secs. Nobody was near.
Reeves never saw the ball. (No, he wasn't beaten by much - small consolation;
he just didn't know where the ball was or where the play would be headed to; he had no clue!)

1-10-HST 34 (14:17) F.Gore up the middle to HST 31 for 3 yards (S.Cody, Du.Robinson).
Our front four from L to R (94, 95, 91, 90)
Actually, it was a ZBS run right.
Cody shed the double team and wouldn't let go of Gore's foot.

2-7-HST 31 (13:37) (Shotgun) A.Smith pass incomplete short left to V.Davis (A.Smith).
Our front four from L to R (90, 95, 91, 94)
They tried a screen pass, but both Okoye and Smith were too quick.
Smith batted the ball down toward the side line.

3-7-HST 31 (13:33) (Shotgun) A.Smith pass short middle to J.Morgan to HST 14 for 17 yards (E.Wilson).
P10
Our front four from L to R (90, 91, 94, 98)
Niners in shotgun (single back), TE left, slot left, split wides.
Texans showed man coverage from nickel;
with 56 following the TE Davis in motion to just inside the slot receiver.
We brought Ryans up the middle and showed blitz.
And we did blitz, but never got there.
Morgan (in the slot) just shoved off Quin on an inside slant pattern.
The middle was wide open
with Cushing following Davis deep.
They had our number!
We'd have been better off having Ryans showing blitz but dropping back.
Or having a DE, in this case, probably Mario, backpedaling from the weak side.
The QB might not see that as he was locked onto his strong-side receivers.

1-10-HST 14 (12:48) A.Smith pass short middle to V.Davis for 14 yards, TOUCHDOWN.
Oh well!

Niners in single back, double TE right, Crabtree slot left, Morgan split left.
Our front four from L to R (93, 91, 92, 90)
We showed a 5-2 zones that (supposedly) would drop back into a 3-deep zones, 4 short zones.

Morgan went in motion to outside slot receiver and continued to run an inside slant.
The slot man ran a go route.
The inside TE (Davis) ran a corner-post route (faked to the pylon and went back toward the goal post.)
The outside TE ran a quick out and up route along the sideline (forward, out, and then up).

From our right to left in the short zones,
Diles was on the slot receiver and stayed in his zone as the slot man ran a go route.
He let his man go to Dunta & Wilson, which was normal.
Diles also had to watch for the RB, so I guess he was OK.

Demeco was in the middle right zone and had to follow Morgan on the inside slant.

Cushing was in the middle left zone and should have followed the inside TE Davis.
Instead, he let Davis go, and who knows what the rookie was trying to do next, LOL!
(Perhaps, he was thinking he can go help Quin!)

Quin was in the outside left zone on the outside TE and followed his assignment.
Except for the way he ran his coverage which might induce Cushing into thinking he might get beat.

In our deep zones:
Dunta was on the outside of Morgan and dropped into cover 3.
Wilson was in the middle deep zone, and he should have shaded more toward his left (the middle, where the action was to happen.)
Pollard covered the other side and faced another tough choice as to whom he should support.
As soon as Cushing released Davis, Pollard had to cover the outside to keep an eye on both TEs; either one can run toward the corner.


But Davis cut back inside.
And he was too fast for Pollard just as Fitz was in the previous game.
Wilson would have been of better help if he had stretched his zone more toward the middle.
(Most likely he wouldn't be able to help, but at least he would be in better position.)


Quin would be better off covering his man tight.
He has speed and he can hook the QB and look for an INT.
But he needs to work with the safety and the guy in his next zone (Cushing) as not to leave any doubt that "I" need any help.

Cushing is a rookie and needs to keep with his main assignment first and foremost.
Stay with the man stretching your zone deep, especially when he is the fastest guy on the other team.

Pollard, sorry you were in a tough position again;
but just get up to the dead spot in between the 3 zones, that's your best chance.

Diles, take matter into your own hand.
When you know there are two guys behind you and you don't have to worry about the deep receiver anyway,
stretch your zone to back up the next guy (Demeco) as the inside receiver encroaches his zone.
In this case you know he's gonna stretch left to follow the slot; cover his back by dropping deeper.
It's more important to guard a TD than to watch for a RB,
especially when you can see that he was ready to stay and help blocking Mario.
You and Wilson and Dunta can all converge in case of an unlikely last second dump-off.

Frankie, shouldn't there be a contingency plan here (some coaching points)
to have Dunta and Diles on the outside guy
so that Wilson can slide in and help on the other receivers?
I don't know a lot of Xs and Os but I can see some bad football there!

IIRC, wasn't there multiple flags thrown at him? I was calling it a PI before they even threw the flags it was so obvious.

Oh well, it didn't seem to hurt us at the time anyway.
Yea, I was callin PI before they threw the flag also. We were at the sports bar, and I remember turning to an Eagle fan friend of mine and told him to watch. He agreed it was PI.

You simply cannot see it in instant replay.

You have to put in super slo-mo to see that Dunta never touched Isaac Bruce.
And that Bruce clearly stepped in front of Dunta trying to get a call.

Not that it matters!
But to watch a great play turn into a pass interference call is a shame!
