In response to Uncle Rico's comment:
Hooman caught a 1 handed pass for a td and the defenders hands were all over his arms and the ball. Danny boy should have made his catch. He had both his hands on the ball and allowed it to get away from him. He had a good game but let the game winner get away.
So the defensive player gets zero credit for ripping the ball out of his hands?
The D player should get some credit but what allowed the break up was the bobble and the lack of pulling it in. It wasn't like he caught it leaping by the tip of the ball. It was right in his palms which should have been a clean catch but he bobbled it and couldn't tuck it away. We have seen Edelman, Dobson, Vereen, and yes even Collie make similar catches with the CB right on top of them. The difference was they caught it cleanly and tucked it away.
yesterday in the Dallas game Dez Bryant had a similar play albeit not in the end zone and he had the ball stripped and after he had control of the ball. If D-backs can get a hand in beteen the hands of the reciever there is a pretty good chance they can rip the ball out. It happens all the time to receivers in the NFL even the best of them.
BTW, Edelman dropped a ball inside the 5 along the sideline, Dobson has had his fair share of drops this year and Vereen has had a few drops lately (although he does have a cast on his wrist).
No doubt guys like Gronk and Tony gonzalez make those types of plays a good % of the time but d-backs stripping the ball is going to happen.
If you feel the need to lay blame on an indivisual look no further than the kicker and the 3rd/4th down D.
