Can someone explain to me why we keep giving up these jump balls on defense. The Falcons and Ravens both threw up some complete prayer balls that had no business even being thrown and yet their guys always came down with them. Very frustrating to hear everyone talk about how these were such great plays by the Ravens, Falcons etc. They were complete prayers. The Ravens did it against the Broncos too. More times than not those type of garbage throws are picked off. Guess they truly are a team of destiny. Everything rolled their way.
They're not prayers if they keep getting caught are they? If your wr has the skills to snatch a ball thrown in his area, then they are good throws. 49ers db's just got outmuscled 1-on-1 fair and square. Maybe 49ers should have done that more with Randy Moss, a man that has made a career out of snatching balls out of the air
