All i know is that when I watched a coaching video, they prefer the ball to be throw between 35 to 40 yards on such a route.
It's understandable that Jackson looked much higher up in the air if he expected the ball to be thrown deeper (and thefore with a higher trajectory).
But since the ball was thrown short and low, it went below his eyesight.
wow was supposed to be, i love how u can get in the mind of everyone on every play and know what supposed to happen. Its not the fact of where he was looking its the fact of when he was looking. Lets not pretend this is the first time KJ hasnt been able to locate the ball. What about the TD he gave up where were his eyes then ? Looking right in the #s of the WR, and with pass interference.
I agree KJ has done much better SO FAR but come on excuses as to why he didnt locate the ball.......come on man.
