The ONLY thing you can quibble about was the fact he was turned the wrong direction early in the play. However he corrected without initiating contact and simply carried his position through the play.
It was *perfect* coverage and a terrible call.
If you have the WR behind you, you're allowed to use throttle control. What you can't do is stick out your arms. But you can run as slowly as you want and make the WR go around you.
