I hope this is just a joke.... but
-SMOKE SCREEN???? PLEASE?
Now I'm going to be honest I don't watch college football so this didn't bother me until,
McCarron largely succeeded in college as a game manager, so he could be the type of quarterback to limit mistakes in the passing game, allowing Adrian Peterson to carry the team on the ground.
Do you ever just feel like what's the point anymore? Another noodle armed game manager?
---So I figure maybe a joke right?
And yet, while McCarron's production looks good on paper, NFL scouts likely noted that several of the senior quarterback's passes were late and inaccurate in this game.
On the 99-yard bomb to Amari Cooper, for example, McCarron lofted the pass deep up the right sideline, giving his sophomore receiver an opportunity to make a play on the ball. The pass was thrown into double coverage and Cooper had to slow down and leap to make the play. His ability to make the grab and run through an arm-tackle by the Auburn defender was more impressive, frankly, than McCarron's pass.
It was one of a handful of vertical throws attempted by McCarron in which Alabama receivers had to wait on the ball.
McCarron had an opportunity to hit senior wideout Kevin Norwood on a quick post for a touchdown in the fourth quarter but waited too long and his far riskier attempt to drill the ball with the defender near fell incomplete.
Well, I guess winning doesn't mean anything to the Vikings.
