Godwin would originally have to make the 53 man roster now to go on IR. This isn’t the good ole days where everyone stashes 5 young guys on IR in the preseason.
Mans that means cutting another guy you want on the 53 in order to put someone on IR. Not worth it.
I know that Cam doesn't get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to penalties. I also know that throwing the ball into traffic as a throwaway attempt is a horrible idea. Throw it where no one can get it. Hard to make that decision if you have 0.25 seconds to make a decision and the receiver you see is blanketed with coverage and is in the middle of the field.
There is quite a bit of nuance you're missing here. A QB's vision isn't like madden where you see the entire field.
