    • Gordon: Oh, by the way, for what it's worth, I'm right with you on this Rostenkowski thing.
      Casey: Thank you.
      Gordon: It was a terrible call.
      Casey: Lost the game.
      Gordon: I don't know how he made that call. Any idiot knows you hand it to Jermaine, you send him up the middle.
      Casey: Yeah -- well, you're not gonna go up the middle against an 8-man front, but still...
      Gordon: Oh, still, maybe you run a play-action fake, you toss it off to the tight end out in the flat.
      Casey: The problem with that is that without establishing a running game first, no one's gonna bite down on the play fake.
      Gordon: Oh, but still.
      Casey: Still...
      Gordon: A post pattern, a slant...
      Casey: He'd be going against a defensive back who was second-team All-American as a true freshman.
      Gordon: What would you have called?
      Casey: Me?
      Gordon: Yeah.
      Casey: The thing is, I haven't watched film all week. I haven't seen scouting reports. I don't have an offensive coordinator talking in my ear. I don't have 80,000 fans screaming in my face. So it's easy for me -- I don't have 10 million people watching at home on TV, including a pack of rabid alumni. I've had three days to think about it. He had seven seconds. So it's a lot easier for me to make that decision than it was for him. But since you asked me what play I would have called, I'll tell you. Now that I think about it, I have no idea.
