Roddy Is Getting Old And Slow

985 posts in this topic

All he had to do was catch the ball and the Falcons were going to the ship. BUT NO, Mr White failed.

Let's assume he wasn't held on to. He would have been tackled immediately. Ryan had just gotten broKen in half so I'll give him the pass for this but it was a poor decision by the qb. especially considering right outside that gif is a wide open tony g in the end zone

The dude knows how to drop balls. Vincent Jackson was worse than Roddy last season.

Even if he was held, he wasn't 5 yards beyond the LOS, so that doesn't matter.

Well regardless of the rules that's why he couldn't catch it. Because his arms were being pulled back.

One could suggest Roddy hit the weight room.

I think we should drop the holding call/non-call argument on that play because he wasn't beyond the 1st down marker anyways. He was ON the marker for a second, then came back. There may have been a measurement, but when I watch the play it doesn't look like he would have got it.
