Amen to THAT. I cringe every time I see that pass, even though it almost always works. Really dangerous unless everything works out perfectly. So far, no picks on that play, though...whew.
As for the CB risk, I seem to recall that being a 1st down pass for the most part. Maybe that's by design (or maybe I'm off!)...
