Play action to CJ where Kolb faked the hand off. Spiller went right and took 10 defenders with him. Kolb went left and had one man to beat. He made a modest gain on that play but the same play to EJ would most likely have resulted in a TD. That was very encouraging.

The defense would have paid attention to EJ, whereas they didn't expect Kolb to run with the ball.

Kolb can tackle himself, no need to send defenders.

Love it. And agree the play was beautiful. Kolb's very good at faking the handoff.

Not true. Give him some credit.

It takes at least a rubber mat.

Both Kolb, and this post, getting abused all at the same time. This, my friends, is the TBD team of posters humming on all cylinders .... enough preseason work, we're ready for the real action.

It was a good play, perhaps the only good one of the day... :worthy:
