I guess he just couldn't bring himself to predict 10 wins, and figured that since we managed a tie last year, we could git R done again. With the SI writer picking us to finish last in the division, I'm convinced there's a typo somewhere, since these guys are all 'experts'.
That was his player profile coming into the league. "OVERVIEW Moore has the height, hands, and mentality to develop into a quality backup possession-type receiver in the NFL. However, at this time still needs to put on some more weight and would really benefit from gaining a step of initial quickness. Takes too long to reach top speed and will struggle to gain separation on underneath patterns. Is tough and productive making catches over the middle. Has the length, ball skills and top-end speed to potentially make some plays vertically. Flashes the ability to be a good run blocker and needs to be a little more nasty." http://www.nfl.com/combine/profiles/denarius-moore?id=2495315
I'd sure like to see Brown catch some passes. Not worried about Ginn and Cotchery. I'd also like to see Funchess catch some balls, but I'm afraid he'd break a leg. I'd be impressed with Norwood if he can just line up on the correct side by Thurs. night. I suppose Byrd and Mike Brown will get some balls, since they're still on the team.
Potentially getting your brain rattled every time you step on the field in pads is tough, and the reason I don't begrudge them the big bucks they get paid. As for a little jet lag, deal with it and catch every ball thrown your way.
I see this thread has devolved into the SOS. Here's an encouraging opinion from seahawks.net last night- "Horrible decision. One that i predict will come back to bite us. Just watch this guy go on to become great at Carolina." "Great" would be great, but I'll settle for 'solid pass catcher who can get open'.
