Thread: 5 Wideout????

    5 Wideout????



    Are we going to carry 5 wideouts??? Moore looked impressive...I know you can't go by one game, but he sure had a Randy Moss aire about him tonight I know it's still pre-season, but when have we ever had this kinda talent at the wide receiver position??

    Moore is the kind of guy who breaks your heart. Once you think you've figured him out, he does something to make you reconsider. Personally, I think he needs to grow a pair, but it's hard to outright cut a guy with his physical skills. Toughie.

    I was pretty sure we'd be carrying five before this game, it was just a question of Moore vs. LaTendresse. That question is answered now.

    Yea, Moore got it with that performance last night.

    It's gonna be Mason, Clayton, Darling, Williams, and Moore.

    I still wnat to see Moore catch a ball across the middle before I forgive his past sins.

    Actually, I believe he did go in the middle last night on a short pass and got clobbered by two defenders.

    With that being said, I don't think Moore will be retained for his abilitys in the middle.

    His height advantage will be why he is retained as evidenced by what you saw last night.
    That type of play abilty simply cannot be tossed aside.

    I think he's the last reveiver retained totaling 5 as mentioned above.

    Hopefully he can do those types of things when it actually counts and I'll be happy with retaining him.

    I do not. Send him down the sidelines as they did last night and he will be fine. With Mason and Clayton not afraid to get hit or catch the ball over the middle, there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to send Clarence over the middle.

    It sure looks like LaTendresse is the odd man out, I just watched the game and I don't believe he played at all. Or if he did, he got no balls thrown his way.

    Moore is probably going to make it for the reasons you saw last night. He creates a mismatch in the redzone with the jumpball. By no means is he a complete reciever, but he is a role player on this team. This 5th reciever spot is probably going to be inactive anyway, whether its moore, darling, or williams.

    How often does randy moss go across the middle?

    This is kind of like the Vick thing, some players just don't do certain things well.

    You can't expect vick to be a pocket passer, and you can't expect moore to be a guy that turns a slant into 60 yards.

    The good coaches put their players in a position to succeed. Obviously Moore is tremendous (SP?) at jump/deep balls.

    So it's simple, only ask him to do what he is cabable of.

    I believe if he makes the team he will be the 5th WR so I wouldn't expect and ot want him to catch a5 yard pass shake a couple of defenders and get YAC yards.

    I expect him to run down field and outjump a guy he has 7-8 inches on

    Where was that argument when alligator arms was dropping passes last year?

    Look, it has nothing to do with where on the field Moore is. Fact is, the guy shrinks from contact and is willing to let passes go by rather than make the catch.

    Maybe that has changed...but maybe not.
