I can only hope that was Kj's plan. Hope he isn't reading these boards & feeling the pressure to turn his head & play the ball. The simplest thing to do there, like you said, is when the reciever keys in on the ball in the air, before his feet comes down, push him out of bounds.
I don't see many DBs playing it that way. But since the rule change, it's the highest percentage play imo.
I agree, Kj did an excellent
job forcing the receiver to the back line & keeping his eyes on him.
