The Seahawks and Patriot DB's employ constant grabbing during routes.
They have perfected the art of grabbing and getting away with it.
Charles Woodson was the King of this, but starting in about 2009, 2010 the zebra's had been forced to be alert of this, and he got called more and more often.... thus stopping him from "employing" the technique.
And then guys kept running past him.
The zebras need to be aware of this from the Patriots and Seahawks as they are now the kings of this.
It was Belichick who originally utilized this theory in the early 00's to slow down Manning's Colts.
It's a great "technique" until the zebra's figure it out and don't get so lazy to let them get away with it so often.
