Re: Routt to tryout for HOU **Update** Signed
Almost pulled in an INT on a tip ball; safety came up and collided with Routt.
Allowed a 62yd catch and run TD to M. Williams (32 yards after catch.)
(Highligt can be seen at NFL.com under Week 6 can't miss play: Williams)
Routt played on-man coverage.
He turned and ran with the receiver on an outside release.
He was actually ahead of the receiver.
He even turn his head to locate the ball.
Because he was a little too fast, he overran the ball a little and miss-timed it while trying to reach back for the ball.
The receiver somehow managed to make a leaping catch and ran for the TD.
Routt's foreward momentum carried him away from the receiver.
The single deep safety was playing way on the other side of the far hashmarks
(bad positioning - he shoulda been in the middle of the field.)
He then missed the tackle at the 10yd line and allowed the TD.
If he was in the middle of the field; he should be able to make the play somewhere between the 15-20 yd line.
Bad play by Routt; but it was rather unfortunate.
He played it very well until the end.
