      My take on this is it's acceptable coverage by Arrington.  He's maybe a half step behind the receiver after the receiver's inward break I think, but he knows he has safety help up top and he's prote more »

    One more from the TV film, which shows both the spacing and the ball.

    In response to crazy-world-of-troybrown's comment: Agree to both comments, especially the ball seems like it was thrown a little too quick. Turned his head ball was there. Maybe, but when you watch th more »

    In response to crazy-world-of-troybrown's comment: Thanks that was cool, tight coverage. A lot of contact too.  I think Gronk was held.  I also think he pushed off after the hold.  Still you can see t more »

    While Bolden may have been a fine target later in the play, here's Brady just before he throws.  Assuming your goal is to get the ball off as quickly as possible, would you skip over Gronk and wait to more »

      If your first read is open you throw.  Brady does seem to peek to the left quickly just before he throws, but Bolden is running into the back of the tackle at that point.  Here's the moment Brady co more »

    Here are few shots from that play . . . Bolden isn't open until after the ball is released.  I guess Brady could hold on to the ball a long time and wait for his check down guy to get open, but Gronk more »
