And saying he can catch a pass in practice so he can catch a pass in a live NFL game isnt asinine? Well guess what? I can catch a pass in practice too. I guess Im ready for the pros!
All he was saying was that if you show good hands in practice then you most likely have good hands period. It might be a little off I guess but I don't see why you think it's such a huge deal.
The fact that he mentioned wanting to see how he would hold up to the punishment of the regular season shows he doesn't think that he's going to be Jerry Rice just because he catches passes well in practice. He's aware that live NFL games are different from summer mini-camp.
