Looks like the pilots want to get on the brakes early on this landing. The thrust reverser is cracking open before the main gears contact the runway.

It seems like putting the thrust reversers on too early would make the noze of the plane dive down!!!! Maybe i'm wrong?

Someone please tell me if thats what it looks like to them>

With CFM56 engines on the 737 it is possible to deploy reverse thrust when either of the aircraft's two Radio Altimeters are below 10ft – however this is not recommended due to a nose pitching down moment and a rapid loss of airspeed close to the stall.
