    Question Did Tannehill really overthrow Hartline?

    On that big bomb during the 1st Quarter, did Tannehill really overthrow Hartline? I heard James McKnight on the post-game show mention that Hartline was looking back for the ball for too long and that slowed him down enough to miss the ball. So I just went back and watched the play on NFL.com Game Rewind, and you can see that Hartline starts looking back for the ball at the 22 yard line and doesn't stop looking back until the ball touches his hands at the 8 yard line. That is 14 yards that the WR was running while looking backward. Would that have slowed him down enough to miss the reception? How much speed would he have gained if he kept running straight ahead for those 14 yards instead of looking back as well?

    I can't record the play, but it occurs at the 5:30 mark in the 1st Quarter.

    Found it:

    Not sure which play youre talking about but he definitely underthrew Hartline on a play where Hartline wouldve scored. Whoever was calling the game I think Fouts called it.

    James McKnight is an idiot and is completely useless on the radio.

    it was definitely close, i think maybe he had it in catchable range but the looking back for that long maybe was the difference.

    I think people are making too big a deal out of those missed deep balls, Tannehill definitely deserves some criticism for a lot of the offenses woes and those two plays are part of that but they both hit Hartline in the hands and as Gruden says, if you get your hands on a ball you're supposed to catch it. We all know they are both TDs with perfect throws, and not to take anything away from Hartline because I love him but if thats Larry Fitzgerald he still catches both and takes at least one to the house.

    I see it as a moral victory that the rookie had the wherewith-all to throw it to the open reciever and at least give him a chance. One thing you have to be happy about is Tannehill usually throws it to the right guy, unlike check down chad.

    Is this a serious thread?


    Come on now... you have VIDEO evidence that he clearly overthrew him.

    The lengths people will go to to not criticize the QB here is astounding.

    Yesterday I watched that replay over and over about 10 times and it really depends the way the play is drawn up as to when Tanny was suppose to throw it.I think only they know the answer meaning coaches Tannehill or Hartline.But the way everyone is using the word overthrow a wide open receiver you'd think It was by a mile.The ball hit Brian in the finger tips and we all know the NFL is a game of inches...
