Teddy ran the wrong play


Recommended Posts

But I am sure it was not his fault




There was definitely some miscommunication there between Teddy making the call and executing the play,” the Broncos head coach said. “Teddy gets under center a lot before he moves back to the gun. And then when it became obvious that he wasn’t going to do that, you know, it was kind of too late for me to run down there and call the timeout. That’s what happened.”

So the veteran quarterback ran the wrong play. He was under center when he was supposed to be in shotgun. And no one thought to call a timeout.

Not the head coach. Not the offensive coordinator. Not a player on the field. No one.

It’s almost difficult to believe that this could happen on an NFL team. On the 20th play of a drive, facing a fourth down that would likely make or break the night, the Broncos couldn’t execute correctly. And no one was paying attention close enough to prevent it from happening.

Shame on Teddy Bridgewater for not running the play correctly. Shame on Pat Shurmur for not getting the call in correctly. Shame on Vic Fangio for not being alert enough to call a timeout. And shame on the 11 players on the field for not recognizing the confusion.
