I know we have all come to expect someone like Olsen to make that catch easily. But to me, there was something else that made that catch impressive.

If you notice right as he turns to see the pass he is completely in the shadows on the field (Sorry for the crappy screenshots. Pulling them off youtube.)

Then as he is running and right as the ball is about to get to him, he steps out of the shadow and the sun hits him right in the face

Having to catch a ball with the sun in your face is tough enough. Adjusting to a ball you are already tracking, while running at that angle, when the sun suddenly hits you right in the face a split second before the ball arrives? Maybe it is not a big deal, but I was impressed.

That is a catch I expect a professional to make 10/10 times. 

Still think Funchess drops that though. 

Uhh Funch caught our 2nd TD also in the shadow...

The best part of that play is the route that Armah ran that blocked the defender 

This armah guy you speak of. He could be useful, no?

It’s Gruden’s favorite goal line play for a reason. Basically you make the defender make a choice between the TE and the FB. Play action and the TE and FB run outs at different depths.
