Flashes in 2010? He had Moore/Clausen as the QB's and managed to look like a solid #2 as a rookie.
Other receivers also had to contend with Moore and Clausen in 2010. Gettis played in 15 games and had 37 catches and 508 yards in 2010. Lafell's numbers were way way lower that year. He played in 14 games and had 38 catches but only had 468 yards (40 yards less than Gettis). I think there is a halo effect for Gettis as he was the beacon of hope for a lot of people in 2010. Had the one long TD play that many fondly look back on with Quixotic expectations.
