There was a long hard faught debate about and interception Eli threw against the 49ers.
Eli said that Mario was on an incut apparently Mario thought Eli was scrambling so he didn't run the incut. Eli threw the incut...No Manningham...INT.
I felt that since Eli wasn't scrambling Mario should have run his route accordingly. But here's a quote from Hakeem Nicks about Sundays game against the Cowboys.
"WE HAVE A RULE where we bang the in cut out if we canít win the in cut,"
Nicks said. "I felt 'E' rolling out. I thought automatically he couldnít throw an in cut across his body, so I broke it out to the sideline and we were on the same page."
I fee like its reasonable to apply this quote to the San Fran game. After rewatching the play I believe Manningham felt he could not win the In-Cut and "Banged it out"
Nicks wasn't completely clear in this quote on weather you are only to break the route if Eli scrambles but I'm going to say based on what he does confirm in the quote that my initial thought on the San Fran play was wrong and that Manningham did the right thing and the INT was completely on Eli.
