Here is a video of the 4th and 10 pass from Brandon Cox to Devin Aromashodu. You get the ESPN skycam view so you can see the safety let Devin run right past him into the wide open expanses of the middle of the field. Quite beautiful.

Too bad the dumbass who posted the video doesn't know defenses. It was a zone blitz and the safeties were supposed to be in cover 2. Unfortunately the communication broke down. No matter what it was, it didn't work. Also, if a player is out of bounds in the end zone and touches a ball in bounds isn't the ball supposed to be considered out of bounds and therefore a touchback. I am a bitter fan, but that is what I thought happened on Saturday and the video confirms my theory.
the guy who posted is apparently some sports call in show host from DC."if a player is out of bounds in the end zone and touches a ball in bounds" never happened. Devin hits the ball once while he is still in bounds to keep the ball in bounds, he then steps out and swipes at the ball again but misses. It's not as evident from this clip as it is in other angles.It is a zone blitz (5 men rushing) and not the prevent, the problem is that all the linebackers are huddled up near the line at the snap and only drop back just short of the 1st down line. Which would have been great if we tried to run a slant or pass just short of the line like we had several times earlier in the game. Good offensive play call. Bad play by the D.Just for fun, check out #86 Courtney Taylor, running the post route on the right side of the field. He's open to because the safety is playing too deep. It's a harder pass but completable.And if you want to talk about officiating, on the 1st down of this series a pass was thrown away out of bounds. Greg Blue hits a helpless Anthony Mix out of bounds and no penalty is called. If the referess call the late hit like they should, we're never even in this 4th and 10 situation.
