Aaaaaaaah sports. only in this world can Dave Dickenson go from beloved coach oft he year to incompetent boob in seconds. Yes, I’m talking about THE CALL. Second and goal from the two, in comes Andrew Buckley, he gets tripped up…..you know the rest.
Stoking the fire was a PORTION of a comment from Bo Levi Mitchell after the game. “Ball’s gott be in my hands or Messam’s.” Good lord, this man just THREW HIS COACH UNDER THE BUS!!!!!
But wait, there’s more. I ran it Monday morning on sports. Mitchell continued on. “It’s not wrong. For what he called, it’s a good call, it’s something we’ve seen on film with evidence that we thought would work.” That’s the full line. A guy who wants the ball on every play, but backs his coach.
They were still clearing the air on garbage bag day.
“Why wouldn’t you want the ball in your hands? I don’t want a player on my team doesn’t want that,” says Dickenson.
“Ya I want the ball in my hands every single play, every single game no matter what.” sasy teh quarterback. “But that’s not the case. I haven’t run short yardage all year. So that it his (Buckley’s) job and he’s done it very damn well.
Ya, the didn’t work. But the team came out flat, Marquay McDaniel got hurt, the defense couldn’t get off the field early, Rene Paredes missed an extra point, and oh, by the way, The Redblacks were pretty damn good on the day. And let’s not forget the game wasn’t over when Buckley didn’t get in. Paredes tied it. The game went to OT. The Stamps had their chance after Ernest Jackson made a catch that could have just as easily been a drop.
It’s called Monday morning quarterbacking, and as fans and analysts, it’s what we do. Know who’s OK with it? John Hufnagel.
“It’s talked about, talking about football. Hopefully we’re talking about football all winter long. Talk about getting ready for next year get the fans excited. We have unfinished business.”
