That throw to Rice (the play mentioned at 2:24) was one of the most amazing I've ever seen from any QB. Avoiding the A/B gap rush, spinning away, having the awareness to understand the route concept in the heat of the moment, running to his left, site adjusting and throwing a laser across his body to Rice.... unreal.
Writer loses points for "Sydney Rice" vice Sidney, but I'll let it slide since he is on Russell's jock.
Cool that you mention that play.
The other day someone was trying to argue to me that Russ was no good rolling to his left and was only comfortable rolling right. Well, there are 3 plays to cite by Russ that are pretty much the epitome of great plays when going left: the aforementioned throw to Rice vs the Fins, 3rd down to Marshawn late @ Atlanta, and that rope to Baldwin vs the Pats.
Not only is he adequate, but those are examples of great plays when flushed left. The Falcons one probably being my fave.
