    CPJs thinks TW INT was a "deflection"

    Johnson: ‘You want fans that care’ | Georgia Tech

    "you turn it over on the first play of a drive with 8 minutes (left) with a deflection for an interception, and that’s all chances that you don’t have to score."

    What do you guys think? When the defender juggles the INT and it grazes the WR who had to come back 10 yards for it, is that a "deflection" or a poorly thrown pass that could have changed the game?

    let's look at his entire quote that includes that line:

    “It’s possessions, because what happens is every time that you turn the ball over, you lose a chance to score. It’ a possession. We had done a pretty good job of that for most of the year and then Saturday, we turn it over on two plays on a hitch pass, we turn it over on the first play or the second play on an option, you turn it over on the first play of a drive with 8 minutes (left) with a deflection for an interception, and that’s all chances that you don’t have to score. It takes away your chances."

    deflection? bad pass? really doesn't matter. his entire point is exactly true. you can't score if you turn the ball over! saturday's game looked like two years ago all over again.

    It was a deflection, right off Greene's hands. It just so happens that it was under thrown a tad too. Already been beat to death in another thread. No worries.

    If you're gonna dissect every bad throw the kid makes, at least give him kudos for the great throws, too. He made at least 2 perfect 4th qtr throws to receivers in stride with zone defenders infront of and behind the receivers. Even the commentator, a former All ACC qb himself, was amazed by those throws. I guess you were taking a wizz at those points of the game, huh?

    With all that was said about kids giving up, Tevin is launching his body at a first down marker on 4th down late in the 4th qtr to keep a drive alive. The kid has physical limitations, sure, but he gives it his all on every down and there's nobody better (right now) to take his place. But I guess it's Tevin's fault that Vad can't pass him on the depth chart or that CPJ keeps him at #1. Sheesh.

    Why does every discussion on the site devolve to a Tevin vs Vad or Fire CPJ or Fire Groh discussion? Hmm..

    I'm just dissecting one play that somebody else tried to pass the blame on. I'm not worried about TW hitting a 10 yard pass so much as him hitting the one big pass you have to have to comeback.

    If Washington wasn't so late throwing the ball, Greene could have juggled it all the way to the endzone. That's the real problem. Open receivers not getting thrown the ball or thrown to too late.

    Lack of arm strength, underthrown ball to a young raw reciever. 90% on Tevin, Greene is on scholly and had a chance to bail Tevin out but im just sayin that had Vad thrown that ball we score and its a different ballgame.

    DCS. I'm sorry. I'm hard on Washington, but you make a good point.
