Yeah he did....and wtf was up with the sliding? Does anyone know why he did that? Having said that I think we're going to see some improvement over the next few weeks as these guys start meshing together.....

Exactly...I mean it's not like the passes bounced off his ****ing helmet....

And when he catches a TD next week these clowns will be back on the band wagon...well, some will...others are still just too butt hurt about who is throwing the passes to him to care if he does well....they'll only care if he doesn't so they can act vindicated.

However, the slide was pretty embarassing on the day we were honoring Rod Smith. Rod chewed anyone out that gave themselves up of ran out of bounds without being forced out. I miss Rod.

Well, Decker is no Rod Smith...but then again, who is?

I think he was back there because Leonard is as slow as molasses going up hill in winter. End of the game. Desperation time. Stick somebody back there who has a shot at returning it for a big gain.

There's one positive about his catching (or lack thereof). It's better (barely) than his route running. I'm not impressed with his progress thus far. It's early in the season.

Nothing bad to say about Stokely. Outside of a fade pass, you can count on Stokely.

We had an electric returner in Squid, but who needs that, so we cut him.

So Decker pretty much confirmed that he's a b****. No wonder he doesn't play in the slot (more ideal for his skillset than playing on the outside). He should be fighting for every yard he can get at all times. How does sliding save any time at all?

So the issue comes down to whether Decker's a pu$$y or a brain dead amoeba with abs of steel. I vote for B. Either way, he was a liability.

That article makes me dislike what he did even more. I get that guys don't want to get hurt, but when you start playing with that in mind like that...come on.

That's probably the same reason he has the drops, he is afraid of taking a big hit so he is short arming all the catches.

Imagine the Twitter and ESPN outrage had this been a Brandon Lloyd, T.O. or Dez Bryant.

Time to get a legitimate # 2 WR who's willing to make the tough catch over the middle. Put Decker as a # 3 slot.

He got in the endzone just fine, with the nice volley to Dressen.
