I’ve only got one word to describe this 64-yard TD pass from Zach Mettenberger to Justin Hunter: YACtastic.
Mettenberger steps up nicely in the pocket against the Saints and throws a dart to Hunter who takes advantage of some Saints DBs falling over each other, racing to the end zone for the score.
Don’t look now but Zach Mettenberger is showing some stuff in Tennessee. The Jake Locker era could be coming to an end down there in Titan-land.
Or, Mettenberger’s success could just be a product of playing against second-team defenses. Well here’s what you’ve got to do Tennessee, you’ve got to play Zach Mettenberger against some first-team defenses and see what he does.
If I were a coach, what I’d do is alternate my QBs from one snap to the other. That way you’d really get a side-by-side comparison of who is better.
Sure, it might create a little confusion, but that would actually be beneficial too because it would give you an idea of which QB is better at handling chaos.
Unorthodox, but potentially effective.
