Jeez I just watched the replay and no one mentioned that Lester gave Brady the Mutumbo finger wag after the play. Lucky that wasn't called taunting... it was 20 yards away but they could've called it....
That's exactly how the DC writes up coverage. It couldn't be played more beautifully by Kuechly. Perfect positioning and perfect hugging form. Kuechly was smart to stick his butt out a little, to avoid the daunted male to male genital hug
People are going to go nuts arguing that call both ways. And I get it.
But why the **** didn't Gronk make an attempt? If he had, they HAVE to call it.
Very odd to not even make an effort there.
Well when the LB is hugging you and not making an effort to go for the ball and your hands are constrained because someone has wrapped their hands around you it can be hard to bring them up and go for the catch.
