In my opinion, the safety is already moving toward Gates before the throwing motion starts.
but the point that's been said elsewhere, but worded differently, is that if cotchery were running that route he would have stayed inside the db and caught the ball. sanchez is dealing with a bunch of wrs/tes who actually have less experience than he does now. only holmes has more. i think this is leading to more miscommunication, especially when sanchez throws to spots and the guys aren't getting to those spots.
