I don't think what he said was meant as an excuse. Whether or not the altitude had anything to do with the ball carrying, who knows. But the ball carried further than he thought it would, and that's what he meant.
Here's another statement in that same article by him:
"Oh, yeah, all the time," Moore said. "We work on it all the time. But it's different when you're in a game. You can work on some things, but you've got to handle it when a particular situation comes up. On that particular play, I didn't handle my business."
It would be safe to assume that when he says "I didn't handle my business," he is admitting his mistake. Cut him some slack.
