Yes it was, however, there was also immediate penetration by the defense on the left side as well as the middle. Like I said, he wasn't going to get out of that sack. That's more on the line than anyone, though an audible should have been called for a run once the blitz was shown.

However, Syracuse is a very good blitz defense and does a good job of disguising when they are blitzing and what players are coming upfield. They were 10th in the FBS division in tackles for loss without having any high level/marquee players on their defense.

Geno should not have been in the endzone on the 2nd safety. The ball started on the 9 or 10 yard line. He had time, yet he kept drifting back and back. Did the ref miss the trip - yes. But it still doesn't excuse Geno's failure to know where he was and his inability to throw the ball away
He had an open running lane to the left with a blocker in front and was moving in that direction when the leg whip occured. The defensive player was contained and wasn't going to make the tackle on Smith. If you want to blame that safety on Geno, then you go right ahead, but it was still an illegal leg whip that brought him down for the safety.
