Watch it again, he does just that. He looks like he is jogging because he can not believe Moore blew his responsibility to stay deep on that play! Watch Leonards reaction and Brutons as well.
That play was not an anomaly though. It happened exactly like that earlier in the season, but everyone gave Moore a pass because the other team did not catch the ball. Carter is not a great CB, but he was not the problem on that play....
I read your post earlier, and I read the whole IAOFM breakdown but then this came out in the Denver Post today...

Originally posted in the "Nit-Picking Tony Carter" thread. Not sure what to believe, but I do know the play call wasn't to just half-assedly jog 5-yards behind the receiver, then stop and walk while he catches the ball. Champ was on the other side of the field, and didn't play his WR that way.
