    Sure it was the third foot down, but come on Drew, you had room to tip-toe about 2-3 more steps.

    Too bad such a great throw had to be spoiled by sloppy play.

    Comeon, what do you expect from him? He, like everybody else other than the officials, felt that he had two feet clearly inbounds and control of the ball. Why should he continue to tiptoe? You can't take poor officiating into account in every thing you do on a football field.

    Also, I'd wager a lot of money that the call would have been a completition had it been Harrison, TO, Johnson etc., rather than Bennet. Certainly I've seen plenty of receivers make sideline catches where tucking it into the body isn't considered lack of control.

    Harrison would have taken the extra steps to leave no doubt. That's the difference. That's what great receivers do......the little things.

    BS-
    You can't blame him for that.

    HOWEVER - You CAN blame him for the earlier pass that was a little low but catchable when he decided NOT to make a play on the ball because the defender was going to hit him.

    You mean like his Non-TD catch last week? The one where the officials initially called it a TD even though his second step was 1 yard outside the endzone? Sure.....

    Drew needs to pick it up, he looks like he doesn't care out there. I've thought he was great for years, but he needs to develop some consistency with Young. We desperately need more consistency in our passing game, and our WRs really stepping it up would go a long way.

    So, you're comparing Harrison to Bennett now? How do you expect us to treat your arguments if you come up with such inane comparison? To be fair, would Kevin Curtis, David Kircus, Joe Jurevicius or Mike Furrey have tiptoed to make sure they had 2 feet in?

    I'm not the one who brought Harrison into this discussion. Feel free to read the thread before jumping in.

    "Lazy" is another good word to describe that effort.
