maybe try try running all out on a perpendicular path at a very fast WR and a DB trailing and get right in between for a huge hit.......
Not an easy task.........serioulsy.....
or like you said maybe he missed on purpose....Not as easy of a play as you may thinnk...
"Measure Twice......Cut Once"
You couldn't be more full of **** if you were break dancing in a Port-a-Potty.......Kruunch
While you cant stop yourself you can definitley let up and i think thats what he did as much as could... thank god he didnt hit him or it would have been a flag.
Make the moves - KG and PF, dump them - dump them both.
It looked like he was trying to let up in the last instant so he didn't get a penalty.
I would have preferred if he just decapitated him.
Decapitation is worth 15 yards imo.
My take was as he was lunging as he saw the ball went incomplete and was then trying to change his trajectory.
Hes an NFL Safety, trying to make a play on a deep pass during a crucial part of the game. Whats the issue?
Launching yourself at a defenseless receiver and hitting him high is stupid and an automatic 15 yards. The smart safeties in the league are hitting in the midsection on plays like this and still breaking up passes.
