4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

I thought that one play was thread worthy. Tell me you didn't love that call and execution.

Looked like a textbook WCO play. Quick drop. Quick pass. Perfect execution.

Yeah. It was so good I advocated the Steelers do the same thing in a live blog tonight. They ran it, and Willie Parker lost 4 yards.

Gutsy play.

I'm glad Zorn went out trying to win the game instead of not trying to lose it.

I must say the slant is working out better and better.

No doubt. I also love that Jason/Zorn got smart and started straight up abusing the rookie corner Tracy Porter. But it was a ballsy, ballsy call on 4th. There were a few of those around the league today- Shanahan going for 2 instead of the tie, Zorn on 4th and 2, OT in Seattle, Vinatieri on at the buzzer, the Cardiac Cats (Carolina)... Man oh man what a Sunday. Can't wait to watch the Cowgirls vs. Fragile Five (donovan) and the Iggles tomorrow night.

Gutsy call, quickly executed. Sure the O loved it and will give them more confidence in the future. I loved it.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

I loved that play, the confidence it took to call and Campbell and Moss executed it to perfection. Instead of playing the percentages, Zorn took the gamble and it paid off. Good for him and Campbell.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

Great call and impeccable execution. Now I wonder if that quick slant is something we can mix up a bit. At some point the DB on Moss will start to cheat to cut off the slant (probably after we've run it once or twice). What do guys think of Moss starting the slant but then cutting back toward the sideline as JC floats a pass over the head of the DB and into the arms of Moss'? I can see this play over and over in my head.

If it's executed correctly and the DB is caught cheating the rest of the sideline will be wide open for Moss to scamper to the endzone. No way in hell will the safety catch him.

Excellent call and execution.

You know what else was an incredible call? Campbell calling an audible and having Betts pick up the blitz on the TD pass to Moss. Anytime you're actually asking Betts to block...that's incredibly ballsy (even though Chris Cooley had nothing to do with it )

Seriously though, what an awesome win. Let's keep the momentum going

And it was on a quick count. Half the team didn't move. The play was over before the LB's were set and ready to go.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

very gutsy play call. the quick count sealed it. zorn showed alot of confidence in JC to go for it on 4th down. lets hope we can continue to build on what we saw yesterday.

I love the fact that we got a coach willing to make the call, and the players to execute it.
