No, he's not right. Thinking he is is ridiculous.
Yes, he IS right. You're part of the mob that should be ashamed of yourselves.http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/co ... git/17706/
Step One: Control
Anyways, the very first frame shows the most important element that so many have missed: Golden Tate controls the ball before Jennings.
This video from another analysis does a good job of showing the zoomed-in view, and Tate gets his left hand in between Jennings and makes the one-handed catch before Jennings closes his hands around the ball. Here is a cap from that video.
Hardly the best quality, but you can see Jennings’ helmet and space between his hands and the ball as Tate catches it first. Here are the first four frames to show the point of first contact with the ball (click here for huge image).
In the first frame the ball has yet to arrive. It does in the second, and it is stopped by Tate’s left hand with Jennings yet to touch it. The ball does not even move in the third and fourth frames, as Tate’s hand is holding it up the whole time as Jennings wraps his two hands around it.
Tate controls the ball with his left hand throughout the whole play. He controlled the ball even before Jennings did, because he touched it first as we have already seen. He has control, and you do not need two hands or arms for control. It is ridiculous how people are ignoring the fact that one-handed catches are made all the time.
You should read the rest, it continues showing clearly that it was a legitimate catch and even shows Tate got his feet down first as well.
You should stop it.
