I'm sure someday they will get burned on the hitch play, but I don't worry about it too much. One thing I have noticed is that there is no easily discernible pattern for when they throw it. Sure, they only throw it when the CB is giving Andre a big cushion, but I have seen LOTS of plays where the CB is giving Andre lots of cushion and they don't throw that pass. Since they generally only throw the hitch 2-4 times a game (or has been my observation), the chance that the CB is worrying more about jumping that route than getting beat deep is small, in my opinion. But, like I say, it really is only a matter of time before it bites us...but I don't see it happening a lot.
