These guys have kind of been stunted so far in Denver, and they are both growing into their roles. It's also so nice to have Stokley to help take the pressure off them and teach them how to be professionals.
Pushing people into the end zone isn't usually what's thought of when talking about WRs taking advantage of their size. Its about using your height advantage against typically shorter dbs to go up and make a play that wouldn't otherwise be made. I never said Eric couldn't do better. All I said was up until recently this was probably the biggest weakness in his game (For a guy with good height and decent hops)
