Don't think he undercuts it, but TJ doesn't have the body to shield the safety/McCourty from breaking it up. If David Nelson is running that post, and I'm Fitz, I make the same decision because Nelson can body him up/shield the defender. TJ isn't going to do that. A guy like Vincent Jackson on that route, is going to go up and pluck it, but we don't have VJ or anyone like that. Big body receiver that can go up and high point the ball in traffic.
Really don't think it's a concept/play issue, misuse/wrong personnel if you ask me.

Even if TJ undercuts the route putting him in front of McCourty, he has no chance at catching the ball. No one mentions this, they just blame TJ for running the wrong route.
McCourty JUMPED to make the interception. It's not like it was gift wrapped into his chest.
TJ is 5'11" with a 33" vertical. McCourty is 5'10" with a 36" vertical. McCourty basically caught the ball at the top of his jump...so even if TJ undercuts him placing himself maybe at the goaline or 2 yards out as some of have suggested, he doesn't get to the ball.
Bills 3-6 for a reason.
With the way Fitz threw the ball, TJ has no play on the ball even if he undercuts McCourty.
