This is a possible Hardy sack or at least a pass disruption if he didn't slow up after burning Bell? If he extends and surges after rounding the corner he gets to Cam. He isn't allowed to in camp, so he slows up.

 

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer

I see us defending a lot of 3 step drops this year

I don't know. Hardy would have had to cut at a pretty hard angle to get to Cam since he was stepping up in the pocket.

He is really close to just extending his arms to get to the ball. I think he gets there if he was going at 100% and not 75%

Anyone saying that wouldn't have been a sack or at least a bad pass caused by the hit is crazy. Liked Garry Williams backwards dance BTW.

I also think Cam could have taken off between the End Tackle gap and picked up a minimum of 15 yds.

Too close for me to say definitively that Hardy would have gotten him. But yeah, it would have been close.

Why was Bell at LT?

They probably wanted a look at Campbell at RT and Gross doesn't need any extra snaps.

I don't see it. Bell got a decent push on him and maintained position between him and Cam. Hardy was never within three feet of Cam

It's 50/50 on whether Hardy makes that play.  It is clear that he lets up, but I think he was blocked out of the play pretty well by Bell. Bell also seems to let up a little on that second contact.  If he had wanted to, he could have pushed Hardy a little further away. Even if Hardy had been a step faster, I think Cam would still have gotten the ball out.  The placement on that throw was impressive and the receiver (Armanti) did an excellent job of making that grab.  From my perspective it looks like a solid play.

 

The other question would be if Gross would have handled that as well as Bell did there.

 

Probably in the reg season, Hardy makes that play on the opponent more times than not. Hopefully this is a sign that our offense can make huge plays like this when needed against good defenses.
