'Bama/SB 42 Finish

TDMaker85 : 1/9/2018 10:25 am
Watching that final play unfold last night I was reminded of the razor thin margin by which we won SB 42.

After the Plaxico td to take the lead, just like Georgia, we were in a cover 2 (iirc) in the waning seconds. Brady launched one to Moss on a go route up the left sideline. And just like the Georgia safety, Gibril Wilson inexplicably failed to cover his back half of the field. (I mean, you have ONE responsibility there: don't let anyone get behind you). He was roasted.

Would have gone down as the most heartbreaking loss had not Corey Webster saved the day from the trailing position and knocked the pass away (which may have hung just a tad). Moss also helped us by not high pointing the catch attempt.

Anyway, let us now praise Corey Webster!
Two

players "magically" upped their games to difference-making levels during the 2007 post-season. One was Eli Manning, but the other was Corey Webster.

Don't forget about Mitchell.

It was a hell of a throw by Brady, too - he took a beating that night and still launched that thing right into Moss' wheelhouse.

Thank god for Corey "I'm Suddenly Amazing" Webster.
The light went on for Webster in that

Buffalo game when he had the pick six.
I always think that pass went short thanks

Just re-watched it, the pass went about 70 yds. How much further can a QB throw the ball?

Corey Webster took a lot of crap for a guy who was real inmportant to one of the great runs in NFL history (that play, GB interception etc.)
That ball in the air ...

For me the Brady hail mary in SB46 takes eons. For some reason I think Gronk is going to get there and catch it every time I see it. I was at the game and I swear I think I passed out as the ball was in the air.
Yup

Gibril played well for us but would be remembered as a near Pisarcik-level lowercase goat if Corey didn't save the day there. No way can you get fooled deep there. I was not upset when the Raiders offered him buckets of cash.

Funny that SB 46 also ended with a long heart-in-your-throat Brady pass.
RW McQuarters deserves credit too  
GeorgeAdams33 : 1/9/2018 12:30 pm : link
He brought his game to a different level during that run.

Another guy who doesn't get enough credit for the SB46 run is TE-Jake Ballard. Here was an undrafted rookie playing his heart out on a knee that was so screwed up he'd never play the same again. He made his mark giving us all that he had.
like Wilson in '07 didn't someone blow

a coverage on the Hail Mary in '11 leaving Gronk free to make a play?

Not sure but Kenny Philips and Chase Blackburn sure did their part too in 'saving' the day.
