Seeing Brady throw for under 150 yards really helped me step back from the ledge. Guess Luck wasn't the only one... Luck was late and short on the seam route to Ebron in the red zone... That play alone puts us in a position where a field goal would have been all we needed at the end.
I also noticed on that play that Grant was also wide open for a touchdown. So maybe the redzone play calling wasn't completely terrible but our execution was? Also Rogers has to catch that deep cross for a touchdown as well. Getting only 3 points on those drives is ultimately what cost us this game. We won the turnover battle but didn't take advantage.
All in all, we fought hard. For such a young team, we are fighting and giving ourselves chances every week. Just need to improve our red zone execution. I really would have liked to have seen Swoope get more red zone targets yesterday. Maybe even some back shoulder throws to him.
And that video of Luck's throws shows that he is consciously making the effort to throw the ball on time. When he reaches the top of his drop back, the ball is coming out immediately. Eagles D may have just been a bad matchup for us. Their tackling was sound and that front is not one to start experimenting with.
We get the Houston front next. Another stout test, but I expect us to execute better and get the win.
