2013 Game Summaries
Week 1 - Ford caught a short flare on the opening drive, but didn't have any room to maneuver. Ford was blown up on a short slant at the start of the third quarter and dropped the pass.
Week 2 - Ford made a great grab in double coverage swiping the reception away from a defender. He looks like the Raiders 4th wide receiver right now with Brice Butler passing him in targets.
Week 3 - Ford saw action in limited packages, but looked good when he did get the ball in his hands. His first catch came on a jet sweep out of the wildcat formation. Ford looked speedy as ever in getting to the corner and turning the play into a positive gain. Fordís lone reception came on a wide receiver screen. The play was well blocked but what was really impressive was seeing him go from 0-60 in about two yards. Ford got up the field for 15 yards on a play that many slower receivers would have taken for less.
Week 6 - Ford's best play of the day was breaking up an INT on a deep ball thrown down the right sideline. Ford had zero separation on the play but did a nice job of getting a hand in the way. His 11 yard pickup on a screen was a play we've seen each week and once again his blazing speed played a huge part in the gain.
Week 8 - Ford's only reception came on a quick screen that has been very successful this year. The Steelers blew the play up, and Ford coughed the ball up, losing a fumble. After a near mistake in the punt return game, it was a very shaky game for Ford.
Week 9 - After fumbling last week Ford was not involved at all in the game plan until the game was well out of hand. His biggest play was a good catch on a perfectly executed back shoulder throw from Matt McGloin. Ford caught the ball under tight coverage.
Week 11 - Ford was not very involved at all and dropped his only target. His use in the running game has grown predictable it seems and the team didn't use him on the wide receiver screen, the one play he's had success.
Week 13 - Ford saw a major increase in play and targets this week but was rarely open and unable to do much when he did get the ball. He saw a deep shot down the left sideline early in the game but he was blanketed and the ball was thrown well out of bounds. He had absolutely no room at all on his lone carry, and caught a short pass at the five yard line but was unable to beat one man into the end zone. On his final target he ran a fade into the corner of the end zone but never had a chance as Brandon Carr picked the pass off.
