No matter who's to blame on that one the thing that I didn't like was that Watkins didn't even hit Robinson. I know it would probably not have made a difference in the outcome of the catch, but I think if it was Davis out there he would have blasted Robinson. You never know if the ball comes out and they don't rule it a touchdown. Instead he pulled up and just gave him an easy catch.
I still think Watkins is going to be a good player in time and mayb he learns something from this play. Hopefully the coaches will let him know that he should have popped Robinson.
