Watch our play off game vs NE (highlights
). The pass that was thrown behind Andre(44 seconds), Matt was wanting to go to OD running a slant. OD beat his defender to the inside, The MLB was rushing the line, but he saw OD coming across the middle & occupied the space directly in front of him.
That's not an illegal pick, it's someone who understands routes. If the Y releases inside obstruct his route.
Cushing is smart enough to do it. We'll see if Sharpton or Brooks is as well.
