Catching the Football at its Highest Point

Football announcers and analysts like to say that receivers are catching the ball at its highest point or at least they should catch it at its highest point. WRONG! The highest point occurs about halfway between the quarterback and the receiver (exactly where depends on many things, but, it is safe to say about halfway).

The thing they are probably trying to say is that the receiver should catch the ball as high as they can.

Does this annoy anyone else?

have never heard it said - but it would definitely annoy me. I'd like to see a receiver that could do that though.
