You guys crying that it was all bad decisions....the ball he threw at Wallace that was picked off in OT was thrown badly behind Wallace and into the defenders arms. A good throw and its a completion.
Well said.

I can barely throw if I have a hangnail... let alone a separated rib tendon.

An injury like that can make a pass be "only" one yard off... but, that "one yard" can be all that it takes to go from completion to INT.

Furthermore, being "open" in the NFL is a difference of inches (not even a yard). A WR has to be thrown open... and, again, it's hard to throw a WR open, when one can barely throw.
