Who effin cares? Damn, the game was not lost on this one play and lets be honest, of the 7 possible outcomes of the play, we would have been ecstatic with 3 of them (caught tackle out of bounds, caught touchdown, defensive pass interference), ok with 2 of them (caught tackled in bounds clock it, incomplete). Its because the last possible outcome is what happened that everyone is decrying the play. But its a hindsight argument. In case you haven't noticed throwing the ball for his receiver to make a play is what Eli does alot. Mainly because he has to.
Barden got hardly any separation, played the defender wrong and got beat, even after all that, make a play on the ball, not the defender,
Barden is not a reliable Third or Fourth Receiver,
if needed put him in Goal line situations, either on the Fade route, or as misdirection
Football has been very, very good to us.
In the midst of this losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-
