    DeAngelo Hall is correct in what he said.

    On the chalkboard im sure the play was supposed to be covered.
    I dont doubt that.
    However in the famous words of Tom Landry "The only problem with my game plans are the players".

    Cruz is not coverable in that situtation when he and Eli are on the same page.
    The defender does not know if Cruz will act like he is
    running full speed, then stop short and run back 3 yards
    (hence defender tries to get over top and is out of positon).

    Or he does run full speed and defender thinks he might stop short
    and he doesn't, hence defender is behind.

    The 3rd problem for defenders, is that even if they guess right AND have double coverage,
    Cruz comes down with it many times anyway (although I can't stand those throws when Eli
    makes them).

    There is no play designed to cover all those options at the same time.

    The designed coverage im sure was to have the safety playing from behind. I doubt the Redskins playcall was designed for a WR to get behind the safety in a 2 minute drill.

    My problem with that logic is...that can be use to explain away any play!!

    On RG's touch down to Moss Hosley was suppose to be man to man with Rolle playing safety over the top. Using Hall's logic we gave away that play to because it should have been covered.

    It's a joke! This whole we beat ourselves BS every team is using these days is just corny apparently nobody loses these days.

    yes , all that is true for the CB.

    but in that game situation the Safety must stay between the WR
    and the end zone.he can not let the WR get behind him.
    even if he has to commit a foul....better than yielding the winning TD.
    it was absolutely the safety's bad on that play.
    the pen is said to be mightier than the sword.....
    but when is the last time your sword ran out of ink ?

    Both Nicks and Cruz had double coverage ... Hall was one on one with Hixon.

    From what I saw the safety was not expecting Cruz to just "go" and was caught flat footed - he was toast. The Skins could live with underneath completions, they really f'ed up by assuming the Giants would just go for what the Skins could live with...dummies.

    Hall's also right in saying HE could have thrown that touchdown.... quite frankly MOST receivers catch that ball and score....

    What makes that play is Eli and Cruz seeing the same thing at the same time... thats preparation - THATS what made it look simple... THATS what sets this apart from just a throw and a catch like Hall is making it out to be.
