Re: Backing off the Throttle
id say we probably should have rode the backs more in the first half once we took the 28-0 lead. at that point i think we got a little greedy and that led to the int and the next drive fizzling out before the half. also the fumble being called an incompletion.
we didnt go into kill clock mode until legree made the interception. we just had a lot of bad luck in the 2nd half. the kwinton smith holding call which backed us up and had spurrier saying if he knew we'd only have a 18 yard punt he would have went for the 4th and 2. then the next drive with the slant to bruce that went incomplete. some bad luck, some slightly off execution.
there are extenuating circumstances but im slightly concerned that the offense has left a lot of points on the board the past two weeks in the 2nd half.
