That’s a great route by Bhebe but Brandon placed that football perfectly. Have to take the ups with the downs with Brandon but the ups are pretty damn nice.

They make the correct call on that Bhebhe non-bobble and we go up 14-0 early and the trajectory of this game might have been different. We've been playing scared ever since. A dominating 21-0 run starting here and all will be forgiven.
Yep, all forgiven.

I don't really get all the Brandon Peters negativity. I feel like he's what this team needs. Doesn't turn the ball over (much). Can pull it and run (when he realizes it). And can place a good ball down the sideline (usually). He's not Tom Brady, but he's also not Jeff George Jr. I'm on the Peters hype train.
 
the toothfairy post caused the first fumble-hobbs td. and on 2nd and 9 I said to my son, I'd like them to throw downfield to BheBhe. a good last 7-10 minutes

I am as empressed with the first half of the 3rd as I was disappointed in the first half

If we do our job, they’ll only get the ball 3 times this quarter. One big stop, offense take care of the ball and let’s get out of here with an ugly win.

I agree and disagree. He’s had some improvement as the season has gone on, much like AJ showed last year (he looked great in the NW game). However, he is just so inconsistent that it’s frustrating. He can have an awesome throw like that one to Bhebe, and then he can have another where he holds the ball for four seconds in the pocket and takes a ten yard sack. I just want to continue to see more consistency.

For as often as we criticize coaches for their lack of halftime adjustments, kudos to our staff for the adjustments in this third quarter. This game was flipped in its head in a hurry.
A good, old fashioned posterior chewing may have helped.

Peters can throw well and runs decently but does not see the field well and panics when rushed

Not many changes defensively but a big adjustment from Rod. Definite kudos to him.
