Tough day for Doug Baldwin vs. the Cardinals on Sunday. He dropped the winning TD in the high pressure 4th qtr on Sunday in Arizona.

It was a 13-yard touchdown waiting to happen. Only it was a TOUGH play to make. Really tough.

Baldwin was diving full body stretch for the laser throw from rookie QB Russell Wilson.

As Danny O'Neil of the Seattle times so nicely put it "He failed to make what would have been an incredible catch."

Pete Carroll said, "Doug's layout would have been extraordinary, spectacular."

He landed on his face it seems, and then Doug Baldwin tweeted some gems.

Yea man. You right. I did. “@mat_mannn: You dropped the game winning touchdown”

Owning up to the fact that he didn't win the game for Seattle. You have to love him for that.

And then this doozy.

Thought it was a dream, but it really happened: twitter.com/DougBaldwinJr/…
