It's not just that, it's the scheme. They're coached to "tackle the catch". Trying to think of an INT where someone jumped a route. I remember a couple overthrows that Clark caught. One got tipped right to a LB, too.

And then there are fumbles. 4 or 5 recoveries all year. You never see people ripping at the ball or putting a hat on it.
