Heh. I promise not to get you spammed, but I’d also rather not call you over this. I generally believe that if something can be explained orally, it can definitely be explained in writing. Usually it’s easier and clearer, in fact.
Basically, my view is that Edelman has already taken Trevathan out of the play, and there’s no one nearby from the other side of the defense; a leading throw allows Edelman to catch the ball in stride and try to shake the DB (I think it’s Keo?), instead of slowing down and making the catch on the numbers. I’m not saying it was a bad throw or anything, but I certainly think it could have been better.
