I don't think he bobbled it. The force of the guy pulling at the ball forced his arm to move opposite his body. He still had it secure. That's what I saw anyway.
Another coaching thing here I would be drilling into these guys is, do not hold or block in the back on punt returns. Do your best to block but a guy like Holiday can make people miss on his own and the last thing we need, as we saw one this past Sunday, is a nice return to be negated by a stupid penalty.
I could see them giving him a snap or two on the offense. If you get him some work at it, you never know when you might hit one big with him.
