WR Roy Hall (Official Thread)

Discussion in 'Buckeye Alumni' started by JohnnyCockfight, Oct 3, 2004.

    JohnnyCockfight Beer is God's proof that he loves us.

    Roy Hall made one hell of a catch in the game last night. And he did it when it mattered. That makes two clutch, outstanding grabs in the past few weeks.

    We have some studs at the WR position and it would be something to utilize all of their talents--because they all have great skills in different ways.

    For instance, the underthown, jump-ball bomb to Roy Hall is perfect. He is a big dude for any DB to hang with, let alone out-jump. And he's a big bastard to tackle if he keeps his feet after the catch.

    Using our WRs to their talent levels will also keep the defenses more honest than they have been, and open up the running game a bit (one would hope).

    Clutch plays like that make me wonder why he lost his starting job? I just don't get it. Bam is a nice 3rd Reciever who can make some quick moves and some good plays, but he is not going to have the abillity to make catches/make plays when he is covered. Hall, when he is playing well, has the ability to have that Jenkins/Boston type quality of catching the big ball even when he is covered like a glove. I didn't understand it, and I still don't.

    Your comments on Hall and the WR's are right on.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    Best catch of the night was Bobby Carpenter's INT. Both Holmes and Hall had great catches, but Bam had two catches where he was getting hit while he caught the ball, and he broke the tackle to get more YAC. He also had a nice catch late in the fourth, where I thought that would surely be an INT. For as few times that he had the ball thrown to him, Bam had a pretty good game.

    I vote for Hall's catch.. included ALL the toughest elements that a difficult catch could consist of... ball was a duck... both ends flapping away... permitted time for two defenders to get there... he went above everyone to get it... it was against his momentum/wrong shoulder if you will... his body is twisting in the opposite direction of his momentum... and he falls flat on his back after catching a ball probably close to 9+ feet in the air... an A+ catch...

    Hall's catch last night made me wonder why Ginn was seeing the field ahead of him. We need that big receiver threat.

    It seems that Zwick does a much better job throwing the deep bomb, and the receivers seem to do better catching the deep ball, so why don't we throw it more often.

    Do you really think so? I was thinking he just heaves up ducks !?!?!? I don't see the accuracy, the touch or the rocket yet.. not that it won't come, but I don't see a full arsenal of passes... There was a lot of flutter on his throws yesterday... and when I see flutter, I'm waiting on interceptions... I could be wrong

    Cleve - great photos.

    Another play that stood out for me was Pittman's short yardage first down - although Scnhitker deserves an assist.

    Was anybody else bothered that right after the play he and Huston were smiling about it on the sidelines? I am probably being a jerk about it, but at the time we were still down. I expected to see hand slapping and chest thumping. But I wanted to see looks of intensity - not smiles. There was still work to do.

    Anyone else wondering what has happened to Roy Hall? All the talk of the next

    Give him 4 years of PT before you right him off.

    Not everyone tears it up during the first part of their career and not everyone becomes an AA. Just like with Lydell, even though his career has been a disapointment..thank them for all their hard work and sacrafice and wish them well on their lives after football.

    But like I said, lets not write him off just yet.

    I agree he is only a sophomore. This team has alot of potential at WR. Albert Dukes is supposed to be as good as Holms. Their HS coach said they are clones.
