Ironically, he slips on the play and uses...GASP...athleticism to over come it.
Stop being a homer and realize that the GB defense had as much to do with that play as Steve Young and Terrell Owens. I'm not hating on the guy at all and I think he's f**king awesome, but to think that Steve Young made that play happen because he was "reading the defense" and it was all the Niners doing, is just plain blind homerism. Young and Owens both made spectacular plays, but thank goodness it was also an awful defensive play as well.
As my buddy Lowell Cohn would say... please. Of Course Steve read the defense on that play. He read the coverage, and he saw where the ball had to go. He had a ridiculously Small window (can you see the 4 defenders around the football? anything less than a perfect throw would have been knocked down, or incomplete). By the end of Young's career he was bery good at reading defenses, and didn't rely on his scrambling ability anywhere near as much as early on. I mean come on man, what's your deal!?
