Where's The Pressure

In the aftermath of Notre Dame’s 20-17 victory over UCLA, consider this -- thank goodness the Bruins decided to play coverage instead of go after quarterback Brady Quinn on that last drive.

Quinn had time to hit three straight passes, the last the 45-yard game winner to Jeff Samardzija.

You could almost hear the criticism from UCLA defensive end Justin Hickman, who said, “We didn’t get enough pressure on the quarterback and we were getting pressure on him all day. He had too much time to find his receivers. We had the game won and didn’t finish. They went 80 yards in three plays, there’s nothing else to say.”

So we won’t.
