The point is, on that type of route, timing is everything. Kap had to throw the ball trusting Crabs would be there. Unfortunately, Crabs was allowed to be held, which disrupted the timing. It was not a bad pass and if he would not have been held he could have (or should have) caught the ball. Capisce?

A "better ball" meaning, "predicted that Crab would be held up, and thrown the ball accordingly". Considering there was a blitzer right in his face after the snap, I don't think he had time to concentrate on his psychic abilities for that throw. He had to assume that Crabtree would not be held.
