Decker finished with 8 catches(career high) and 136 yards(career high).

Now he just needs to get into the endzone.

Stats are stats. Sometimes they don't tell the real picture of a game performance. Kyle Orton was once on pace to throw for 5,500 yards in McD's offense.

Decker had some key drops and that hook slide was inexcusable.

I even get the running out of bounds thing to a certain extent. If you're a 6'1" 195 pound WR, I understand why you don't want to lower your head and get blown up by a Patrick Willis for half a yard. This was an entirely different animal though. Minimum he gets 4 or 5 more yards and if a defender takes a bad angle or he breaks a tackle it could have gone for much more. It was the middle of the ****ing field for Christ's sake.

The only thing I could possibly think of was a quick call, everybody get up to the line of scrimmage real quick, catch the entire texans defense off guard and go for a big strike. Seems like something Peyton would try.

But, apparently it was just a super lame ass move. Maybe Decker was trying to show-up the lame-ass replacement refs...

Stop making it about Tebow... damn you are a defensive puss. The problem is that Decker is WR... for the majority of his life, and was supposed to have great hands coming out of college. Well, now that the excuse that "it was a left handed throw and that the ball is not getting to the correct spot", is out the window. Yo have to start manning up and held people accountable. He is a highly decorated college WR (some people thought he could go 1st round if it weren't for the injury) that keeps dropping passes right on the money! So keep acting like people that don't agree with you are Tebow supporters. That just show your IQ, or lack of thereof.

Decker has problems in the IQ football department and inconsistent hands. Could he get better? I hope... but right now... he is a 3 year vet. That screws up more than what he should with a "Franchise QB".

I think he'll feel like he is in heaven when they stop dropping balls. Not too many drops today, so it's a start, but really their size and speed mean nothing unless they develop NFL-caliber hands.

You do realize that while there have been drops occasionally, the number of them is about or below average.

Rarely are Wrs perfect, even in Indy they dropped balls. Or his lifetime % would be higher.

And frankly after he has had more than five total games (that includes preseason) time together just maybe they will get used to having areal QB throwing to them. Opposed to Orton, tebow and weber that they have had as their career has developed. In DTs case at this point as a pro he has probably doubled the amount of passes thrown to him in college and that includes his sick time in the pros.

And I'll throw out just another tidbit. Working in yet another scheme, with real route trees is also adjustment time.

I'll say it again Manning has to be happy as a pig in crap having the big fast targets he has never had add to that what is starting to look like a real defense and good running game.
