Hell of a catch but it wasn't even his best catch. Definitly wasn't better than Beckhams full stretched out 3 fingered catch. I don't even remember Beckham looking back at the trajectory of the ball when making that catch actually just fully extending and hoping. He might have been looking and I don't remember though. That was still a better catch though. Doesn't diminish the fact that Harrison made many catches that were great in his day
I'm not exactly a shy guy..... and if you were the only person in this thread objecting to what happened on 2nd and 40 then I would have responded directly to you.
But the thread is filled with arm-chair quarterbacks who don't know their rear end from a hole in the wall.
So, I responded in general to everyone who agrees with you.
As for 2nd and 40, the fans here are just that --- fans. And if trying to do more on 2nd and 40 had led to an interception, or a fumble, or a sack, or to Luck getting hurt, YOU would've led the charge for how terrible Pagano is. Because that's what you do --- you want it both ways. No matter what, you always think you're right.
Pagano is far from the first HC to go conservative on 2nd and 40. It's what almost all coaches do. They try to improve some field position with conservative calls to help the punt team. Live to fight another day.
