The ball hit him right in the chest, he could have easily clutched it with his right arm and then used the other that just got free to fully secure it before Harmon arrived. I am sorry but no matter how much you want to defend him on this.. for me this is a drop. It is too late because he lacked the awareness to account for the defender. This is a running theme with him. He is looking back at the ball at this point already: And yet he still somehow runs by Gilmore who in contrast has perfectly anticipated the trajectory. This is followed by a half-assed attempt to correct for it by swinging his arm This is exactly the same issue as with the Howard INT. He somehow is not able to anticipate the defender jumping in front of him and then gets to a point where momentum makes it impossible to do much. Lack. Of. Awareness. I am not angry at all at Cooks. And I have never said he was the only reason that we lost the game so please dont move the goalposts on all of this. I have just given you examples where he screwed up on the big stage repeatedly which is something that was asked in this thread.
