On the long pass early, he caught the ball in stride and kept running, but for some reaosn veered off the field with only the EZ in front of him and the defender a half step off.

He could've run or dove it in.

Did anyone else see it that way?

(Not holding that against the kid -- the O should've punched it in from less than five afterwards).

I don't think he did catch it in stide. The pass was (again) slightly underthrown. Wallace had to slow up, and turn back inside to catch the pass. If the pass had not been underthrown, he maybe would have had the opportunity to continue on into the endzone.

i'll have to look at the reply but i thought it was both underthrown and towards his outside shoulder, causing him to slow up and have his momentum take him out of bounds. if ben throws the ball in stride slightly towards the middle of the field wallace would curve away from the sideline and into the end zone. it was a great play, but i think that was the fine line between TD and out of bounds. sucks we had to settle for the FG.
