I do not get the focus on the "welker drop". Yes, Welker is know for making that circus catch. Sorry, but, that was a fricken horrible throw to a wide open receiver.

When a receiver has to go aerial and backwards to haul a pass...it is not only on him.

Absolutely. Both QB and WR are at fault in that situation cough *Eli's tipped INTs last year* cough</P>

Yeah, when Collinsworth said Welker makes that catch "100 times out of 100" I thought, "uhh..." I mean Welker is great, but to me that's maybe a 6 or 7 times out of 10 play. And it would have been a GREAT catch.

the WRs are professionals too... u have to make that catch

Actually it wasn't.

The play was supposed to go inside the numbers but if Brady throws that, KP has an easy pick.

Brady threw it exactly where it needed to be ... Welker just whiffed on a slightly awkward catch.

He should have caught that ball. It hit him in the hands. Wasnt the best pass but he should have caught it.
Rogers missed some easy ones too. it happens.
Luckily our QB was calm cool and collected!

It was destiny for our team to win it this year!

Especially considering Welker had the most receptions in the league this year.

He doesn't nromally drop a pass that hits him in the middle of both hands.

I saw it as a lucky gonk on his part.

Even Gisele agrees with me lol.

If you think that catch is easy then you've never tried to twist while in mid-air and catch the ball at the same time. Could he have made the catch? Absolutely! But it wasn't an easy catch...just as Samuel's missed INT in the last SB was not an easy catch.

Joe Morrison
02-06-2012, 10:22 AM
I can't believe that everyone is all over Welker about this, it was a lousy pass and could he have caught it, yes, but an easy catch, no way, lets put it where it belongs, Brady missed a wide open reciever point blank, get off Welkers back.

Markroman
02-06-2012, 10:23 AM
All I am saying is that too much dumping going on Welker. He was twisting in the air to try to get to the ball.

He had to adjust while in the air. Very few receivers can make that catch and he is probably 1 of 3 or 4. It was no gimme and I think a little unfair to see all the focus as if it was an easy catch.

I think it was an intentional backshoulder throw, KP had good position to take away that seam route. Welker had an opportunity to make a play but thats a pretty tricky catch. If he makes that catch people would talk about how amazing it was. This play was an example of good defense that often goes unnoticed.

Not all of the time though. I looked at the play and it looked like the wr wasn't ready for the pass. I also thought that Brady threw the ball before the wr was ready so the catch is not automatic.

the caller before me said he'd pick Tom Brady still, because.....and then i listened to a bunch of garbage on how clutch Brady is, and how Eli is just lucky.</P>


Tom gives us 2 points and good field position at the beginning of the game, missed that throw to Welker, he got no help from welker but he missed that throw, can't convert the 3rd and 11, throws behind Branch when he desperately needs a chunk of yards with less than a minute left.</P>


This coming off a game where the threw 2 picks and stillwon when a kicker shanked a 30 yard field goal.</P>


I'm sorry, the magical 4th quarter comeback kid Tom Brady is dead until further notice........</P>

the ball hit him in both of his hands

the WR hsa to come down with that 100 out of 100 times

Welker admitted tha tin the press conference

Regardless of this new found theory that people seem to have about what should be caught and what shouldn't, its not subjective. THE RULE OF FOOTBALL IS IF IT HITS U IN THE HANDS U HAVE TO MAKE THE CATCH

It was a near perfect pass. If he threw it more inside it would have been picked by KP. If he threw it more outside it would have been right into coverage. He threw it to the open spot in the defense and the kid dropped it. Great QB's throw passes to create an open receiver. Thats what Brady did. </P>

How could it have been thrown better? If he catches the ball (as he should have) everybody would have said what great touch Brady showed on that pass. He threw it to a place where Welker could catch the ball without getting lit up by a DB, or have it picked.</P>

It wasn't a high throw.

The play was a timed seam pass to the inside shoulder of the receiver.

Brady recognized that the inside was being taken away by the Safety and the outside was covered by the corner.

He threw it just on the outside of Welker's head ... guaranteed not to get picked but still give the receiver a chance to make a play on the ball (the receiver with the most receptions in the NFL this season I might add).

Welker turned to the inside as the play called for, saw the ball coming towards his outside and twisted all the way around to make the adjustment (making him sink down as he twisted and the ball to appear high).

He got both of his palms on the ball and couldn't make it stick.

It's not the easiest catch to make but one you expect Welker to be able to do (and has done many times in the past).

The throw was about as perfect as it could have been given the circumstances and the play that was called.

It's not really a "fault" type of thing. If he makes the catch its part of what makes the Pats so great (and might ensure that they win last night). If he doesn't, it's part of what allowed the Giants to make a last minute game winning drive (which is what happened).

All apart of the drama and greatness that is a close Super Bowl game.

It was a catchable ball....but definitely not an easy catch. Welker had to spin around, and the ball was also slightly behind him, and high.</P>


After the catch, the Patriots let the Giants roll 88 yards for the game winning TD. And Brady still had a some time on the clock and a timeout to respond, and didn't.</P>

I thought KP tipped that ball too.

But it was still in and out of Branch's hands. The general rule of thumb with receivers is that if it hits your hands, you should catch it.

The playI get most confused about is in that final drive with Branch going across the middle, they say that Brady threw it behind him for the incompletion. </P>



DIDN'T KP get a hand on it? It looked like it to me in slow motion? Doesn't seem to get any credit for it</P>


I thought KP tipped that ball too. But it was still in and out of Branch's hands. The general rule of thumb with receivers is that if it hits your hands, you should catch it.</P>


</P>


Not if it's tipped that close to you. Slight change in direction screws everything up.</P>
