The link isn't working. Is this the angle you are looking at? To me, I wouldn't say it's conclusive that he wouldn't have caught it. It's hard to tell, and kind of an optical illusion. From the camera, it's around a 45 degree angle to the left. Where McCourty is catching the ball, the ball is coming at a 45 degree angle from the right. But for this thread, that wasn't the point. People who really want to blame Fitz for it will continue to do so. There is nothing anybody can do about it. People who really want to defend Fitz will continue to do so. To each group, they are right and there is no changing that.
In my breakdown, I said that if Graham crosses the safeties face, the play has potential. He could have dropped the ball, didn't he drop one earlier? He could have tipped it and it have been picked. He could have caught it and been down at the one, jumped up and done something stupid for a penalty. 10 sec run off. There are a lot of things. And yes, the throw could have been off target anyways.
I refuse to give a definite of what would have happened, because I just don't know. But to say that it was definitely off target isn't really fair, is it? The "realists" do exactly what the "homer"s do, just on the other end of the spectrum. In the end, everybody looks silly. A little objectivity never hurt anybody.
I'm done scolding you now.
