From a Bills forum, a reason why TO pulled up on one of his catches:

QUOTE (drewbreeesss @ Sep 27 2009, 07:16 PM)

<!--QuoteEEnd-->

Yes he did.
But Sharper would have destroyed him if he hadn't.

How nice to have a feared safety.

I just watched the replay of that play. Edwards overthrew him by 5 yards, Sharper was trailing the play. TO had them burnt. That was a definate TD w/ a good throw. Didnt see TO pulling up till the ball hit the ground 5 yards in front of him.

Darren Sharper was a great offseason acquisition and would have plowed TO there, but Jabari Greer has played great all season. We barely hear his name, he's always got his man covered, same today with TO.

You're thinking of a different play

It would have been better if a Bills fan had posted that on their forum, but I agree nonetheless. :9:

Whoops. Even better. I missed that comment. Sharper is definitely not afraid to hit somebody.

OK, I remember the play in question now, just saw the replay. Ball was thrown to the inside not the outside & TO definately pulled up because Sharper was fixin to unload sonic boom on #81. I think 42 woulda unloaded on him, dont blame him for pulling up.

An even bigger reason came when he dropped the out pass that was right in his hands. Still they didn't target him much and Edwards bungled two throws, but since he dropped the one in his hands (he tweeted that it's still not a drop lol), the end of the streak is "on his hands."

I actually think TO has given up. To my eyes, he completely walked though the game. Maybe (not likely) the thought of playing against an elite quarterback and believing his skills are only meant for playing with QBs of 'his' level, he was phoning it in.

Dont know if I explained that properly, but I think you guys see what Im getting at.

From where we were sitting, there were several plays where Owens had one man to beat, and did, but Edwards didn't even look at him. Even we were scratching our heads a bit.

Dude is a cancer. Did you see the clown act he put on in the postgame interview? Like Dungee said after that interview was played, "That's very hard to coach."

I think we owe MAJOR kudos to Greer. He owned T.O. in the past, and proved that he still owns him today. How many DBs in the league can say they have completely SHUT DOWN T.O.?? After the last 185 games, ONLY ONE. And that happens to be Jabari Greer!
