Gentlemen, it is better to have died as a small boy than to fumble this football.

    I think you've got to know when you cut it back to the middle of the field that you're vulnerable, and secure the thing in two hands

    TaQuon's fumble I can't remember too well, but felt like he was pressing

    Honestly I felt like TM was carrying it kind of loose throughout the game. Course I felt the same way with JT and I don't remember him fumbling that much. Maybe it's just me.

    Green definitely needs to pay more attention to ball security.

    TM may habe had it a bit loose, I'm not sure. But he was holding it high and tight to his body, not hanging out out our anything. And he was rotating his body towards the hit to shield the ball. I'm not sure what else he can do besides hold tighter.

    I think you've got to know the situation.

    At the time Green fumbled, the only thing that could have caused us to lose the game is a fumble.

    As soon as he broke lose I was yelling at my screen "don't drop it!" because the clock was literally more important than the score.

    But this is GT sports, so ...

    An open-field fumble from an upper-classman late in the game is as close to unforgiveable as there is.

    Totally different. He let it slip on a pump fake. Wasn't necessarily being careless. But nonetheless, unforgivable given the score, time, and circumstance.

    Could it be that JJ is a sleeper agent sent by the dwags to destroy our team from the inside out? I will delete this message in 9.5 minutes.

    Call me a weak snowflake if you want but I'm going to forgive a kid for making a mistake or two. It happened, he's talented and he's a Jacket, move on. He can make up for it with his play moving forward.
