Question about gonzo, and his catching style...

Anyone knows why when gonzo catches the ball, he stops his momentum???Like i can remember last game on one of his catches, he had the first down if he didnt stop his momentum, but he backed up a yard or two after he caught the ball to turn around and got tackled. Maybe with him being such a veteran, he senses someone is coming so he's protecting himself from a big hit, or something else. Anyone have any insight???

I know exactly what you're talking about. Gonzo does do this on about every catch. Being that he's lasted as long as he has in this league I'd say it has a lot to do w/ sensing defenders around him and self-preservation. There have been plenty of times I expect him to take huge hits and he's been able to avoid them. Another guy who was great at this was Warrick Dunn.
