Alligator arms would have made no sense at all. If he sticks his hands out in front of him to catch a pass, it hits his hands and bounces off and hits his chest, what do you call that?
I guess I could have said his no catching ass and then we could be arguing the validity of my statement and not the technicalities of it.
if he has stone hands, the ball will bounce off his hands, and not even reach his chest. the ball needs to get through his hands to get to his chest. when talking smack, it helps if it's even physically possible.
