If you make that assumption that leaves only one player capable of being double covered. So by design, they decide a half fade/corner route kind of pass to the smallest receiver on the field into the short side of the endzone is the highest percentage play in that position. It just doesn't jive. I understand people saying Tana has made that play in the past, but based on that specific situation it is not your highest percentage play. That I have to put on the coaches. Mainly Kyle's, (unless it's Mike who has redzone and 3rd down duties, I doubt it though) clutch situational playcalling ineptitude.
That corner route was to the short side of the field. If that play had been called with Santana lined up to the right with a lot of end zone pasture to work with and his speed that play might have worked, but since they were on the left hash mark already as soon as Santana turned left he only had a hop skip and a jump to get open. Hell a defensive lineman could have covered Moss in that short of distance. Maybe a good call but the wrong side of the field.
