    That pass to Crayton that Wilson almost got the pick. What was it that they taught you when you played high school football? When it's 3rd or 4th down, knock the ball down, don't go for the pick? Huh? What was that called again? Fundamentals my friend.

    If you watch the replay again the pass was out of Wilson's reach. He was about half a finger away from getting a hand on it.

    Wilson really didn't have a chance on the ball, he was lucky to get a finger nail on it...

    Really? looked like it went right through his hands when I saw, could be wrong though, I get a little loopy after a Boyz win. I could have sworn it even got deflected by his hand a little. Oh well, forgive me if I'm wrong, my bad.

    after watching the replay, that ball was o fingertip play by the corner.. he was not really in a position to make a defelction either, let alone interception...

    the play in realtime though scared the hell out of me.. it looked like an interceptyion, and when I saw that Crayton had the ball I was like what the hell..

    Yea, my heart sunk when I saw that throw. I had flashbacks of the last Giants game and the Eagles game. I was thinking how many times will this happen to us? Great concentration by Crayton to not only make the catch, but to get yards afterwards.

    I actually thought he DID pick it off. I was watching him and wondering why he stopped running, then I noticed he didn't actually have the ball :eek:

    the ball looked like it grazed a bit of finger...

    but it didn't change the path of the ball..

    either way, if he made the interception it would have been on the Hall of Fame highlight reel for incredible interceptions that never should have happened...

    so did I... I was shocked when I saw Crayton holding the ball...

    If he tried tip it (by extending one arm) instead of catching it, he probably would've been able to do it. Trying for the catch (by using 2 arms) shortened his reach just enough to miss that pass...

    It wasn't funny at the time, but I chuckle now because Tony Romo thought it could be picked. He started running to get back.

    at about 1:40 in it has the play, it isn't great quality, but it sure looks like he might have been able to make a play on it. I do believe he could of had a chance of knocking it down or tipping if he would have extended his one arm instead of trying to catch it.

    When I first saw it, looked like it went right through his hands, which from that video sure makes me look silly on that comment. however does look like he might have been able to do something like sillycon said. I still owe him an apology though, dang me and my conclusions.....
