Brandon Lafell - Ooh Wee Mayne

Great play. I love how Williams hits another gear just as he gets to Lafell's block.

He also had that great catch in traffic in the 1st quarter against the Jets.

The best parallel I can think of:

We should keep him and use him like the Eagles have done with Jason Avant.

He's a solid WR4-5 to have depending on who else we get this upcoming offseason.

 

 

 

did someone say Jason Avant???

I was at the game and LaFell locked up on his man immediately after Williams caught the ball and rode him the entire way.  It was a very impressive block and Deangelo would not have scored without it.

Just for some perspective - not using this to make an argument either way:

 

LaFell was the 52nd ranked wide receiver in yards/game and 60th in total receptions in 2012.

He's the 41st ranked wide receiver in yards/game and receptions this year.

The average #2 receiver would rank 48th.

LaFell should get at least 25% credit for that TD. That was an awesome block.

 

Lafell 25% for great blocking

D-Will 40% for great speed and field visions

Tolbert 5% for great fake

Cam Newton 10% for selling first fake and making good pass

Travelle Wharton 20% for having a great block.

Like others have said, the biggest issue for Lafell is consistency at this point - but I think he's continuing to develop and become less inconsistent. None of that means we should hold the # 2 WR spot open for him if someone better comes along, but he does have the ability to be an excellent # 2 receiver in our offense.
