I hope one day we have the capability to play this in freeze frames so that our eyes can see what the QB was doing at the same instance as each receiver and each defender.
Then we can see that the extra safety (#36 Thomas) extended both arms to bump and redirect KMart (before taking on OD in the left flat), giving the CB #26 Brock time to check on both Martin's route while watching the QB's eyes at the same time.
These two guys were the ones attempting to tackle Jean.
With freeze frame, you can clearly see that #26 was always in front of KMart.
He was in position to jump the route.
There was no way Schaub can throw the ball to KMart with Jean that wide-open.
What do you think, Dutch?
