The hash markes are 18 ft apart. On the int., Crabs ran outside the right hash, and made his cut as AS released the ball. Crabs was at the left hash when the ball came down right at the right hash. So, either Alex missed by 18 ft. laterally and about that long as well with little pressure in the pocket, or he was expecting Crabs to continue straight up field, in which case he'd have at least been in position to break up the int. I agree that AS has a disconcerting habit of overthrowing Crabs in particular, but I question that a throw that far off in two different dimensions is likely just a bad throw.
Exactly. It is a shame the haters can't connect the dots, but no one is accusing them of being intelligent.
This makes sense if it was ONE throw that was high or even a couple of "bad throws" - heck I'll take a "bad game".... but ALL throws to Crabtree over many, many, many games have been high, off target, confused, tipped, etc ... relative to other receivers, even recent additions. Example: Edwards and Smith were doing something really special with that back shoulder throw.
They dont have the rapport that they need to connect on a regular basis. And of course how could they if crabs is hurt the whole time the get to practice together. i dont even understand why there's an argument on this. no one to blame but they need to get it together. Once those 2 get it right this offense will really click.
