Here is a look at Jake Coker’s day against LSU. First, we start with Coker facing a 4th and 1 on the first drive of the game. Notice the snap occurs after Calvin Ridley has already passed by Coker so there is no threat of the fly sweep whatsoever. This was a botched play.
Our next play is about as good of a screen as you will ever see. The timing here is outstanding and the pass allows Ridley to catch the ball in stride and head up the field to convert a third down.
The next play we’ll look at is the destruction of LSU’s linebacker, #45. Watch as Calvin Ridley pumps his fists at the carnage before the play is even over! This may have been my favorite play…
This was a pretty nifty little lay by Key, #49. Look as he first defends OJ Howard and then he suddenly releases Howard and gets himself a sack. Cam Robinson completely ignores Key as he figures Key has dropped into pass coverage.
Lastly, here is Coker’s best play of the night. He drops back and double clutches the throw in order to buy enough time for Ridley to get open. Coker know’s he’s going to get popped but he hangs in there to complete this pass for a first down.
