    I read that Watson rushed the ball for 11 yards. Was that a broken play? A reverse? Was he lined up in the backfield at the snap? At fullback? In short, WHAT THE F HAPPENED?! ;)

    It was a reverse. I can't give you much more than that, but it was surprising as hell to see him run it.

    Wasn't a reverse, it was an end around.

    I actually really liked the play a lot. With Watson coming around making a tighter circle from his spot tight in with the line, the play developed a lot faster than most end-arounds, and wouldn't have surrendered as many yards on a busted play.

    Meanwhile, with Watson's rare combo of speed and power, you're still getting the ball to a guy who can get back across the LOS in a hurry, and then bowl through a couple tackles.

    It's kind of like a man's end-around.

    What he said. I want to see Watson's athleticism used more.

    And compliments on your new set of hands, Ben.:D

    Guess he has stepped it up a bit, and lost his "dropsies"... he is getting close to his contract year and it shows.

    It was a great play and Watson ran it well. They need to run that again sometime because I think Ben could take that all the way.
