If he gets a hand on that ball (because Sherman is still behind him in this picture, Matt is throwing from their right) Sherman has no play.

Anytime someone is disecting a ply like this, when they're not trying to hate on the QB, they'll say, "The receiver can't wait for the ball to get to him, he has to help his QB." Owen has been in the league since 2006, he should know better than waiting on the ball like he did on the first interception of this game.

Both are still Matt's fault, I'm not taking any blame away from him. Just saying OD could have helped him out.... but didn't.
As long as OD knows Sherm is that close and that they'll both be fighting for the ball I agree completly. Is it obvious in the replay OD knows Sherman is that tight?
