"This organization see's Moore as a #2 WR"

Recommended Posts

D.J. Moore had almost 1,200 yards last season while missing a game. He did this on a team without a quarterback, and in an offense that revolved around force feeding a running back touches. If he's not a number one, then what is he? Is a number one reserved just for the elite? If so only a few teams in the league have a number one, and trying to find one is a luxury.

So Hurney's last two 1st round draft picks are a #2 WR and a back-up (but very talented) DE who may not have a scheme-fit unless played as a 3-4 OLB.

I don't k ow why that's a bad thing. 

A #2 WR is still a starter.

If that’s really the opinion coming from the organization it does. Moore is on his way to being a top 5 league wide premiere WR who’s gonna get a huge payday. Even if they are just saying it to motivate it shows the “program” is dumb.

Who knows if it’s true or just Smitty and the host hyperbolizing. But if it is. Dumb.

A 1000 yard WR in today's NFL is not an overwhelmingly awesome WR.  that is about 6 catches and 74 yards per game.  He will be 23 in April, so he is on the right track.

He had 1175 yards when the offense was not good---a bad line and bad QB.

To compare, in 2010, with Clausen and not Kyle Allen at QB, Steve Smith (in 14 games) had 554 yards an averaged 39.6 yards per game. 

Regardless of the #1 or #2 status, and top WR in the mix is going to take pressure off Moore--less S cheating over the top, less #1 CB attention.  And a better OL and better QB should equate to better numbers. 

I think Moore is fringe, but he is on track to be a solid #1 if that is what you call it.  Bring in a #1/2 WR and move Curtis S to the slot, and we are dangerous.

See my post a few seconds ago about Smitty and Moore--it supports you.

When I hear anyone, be they huddler, former all pro WR, NFL team owner or a somehow still hanging onto his job after a mostly losing career resume GM, say that they view a WR who was top ten in yardage last season despite playing with backup quality qb's at best, missing a game and playing on a team with an awful record as a #2 WR, what that tells me is their definition of a #1 is something very few teams have, and therefore is not really essential. Did either of the two teams that just played in the SB have a true #1 by any definition that doesn't include Moore?

No?

Then who cares?

Dude was a top 10 NFL WR with Kyle Allen throwing him the ball. If the Panthers' organization feels he's "only" a #2 then it seems as if the Panthers' organization agrees with the Huddle's opinion that the only viable "#1 WRs" are mythological beasts the who consumes his opponents with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lightning from his arse.

Yeah but I want one of those arse firing Mfers on this team.  How long has it been since a WR actually scared a defense?

Moore is a Top 5 WR in the NFL - or will be ..

Moore has 1,963 receiving yards in two seasons .. 37 yards short from averaging 1,000 yards receiving his first two seasons.

1000 yard seasons do not make #1 Wrs. See Kelvin Benjamin.

In today's NFL top receivers net 1000yds near 100 catches and 8+TDS. And that is consistently. See Michael Thomas, Julio Jones, Antonio Brown before he went crazy.

Dj Moore is a WR2 with WR1 Ceiling which is great. But he's not in the number conversation yet.

Are they talking about talent, or which WR plays the X or Z or slot?

That could be all they are talking about.  They see him as a Z or a slot moreso than an X.

Let's not forget about how many of our passing yards that were dumps to CMC. DJ Moore is legit.

Nothing wrong with this. Just means they expect more out of a number 1 and they should. A number one should demand double teams and still get his TDs and yards. We shouldn’t be satisfied with any position (except RB which needs depth) from last year.

And it makes sense in that respect. Moore is a stud, no matter what fictional number someone labels him with. A different X that moves him to Z, and more importantly get Samuel in the slot/weapon role he’s much better suited for. Doesn’t mean less targets. Just matching him up with different CBs. And if Brady is going to run 4WR sets, I’m putting both in the slots. If either one can get matched up with a S, it should be easy pickings.
