Default Whats wrong with our receivers ?

All they do is score TDs ? Thomas and Decker need to celebrate.

Thomas looked like he was gonna try to dunk it over the goal posts
then he remebered he already gave the ball to the officials ? Anybody else notice that ?

lol

Seriously great job this year guys.

With Green coming on with Tamme and Dreesen Manning has a lot of targets...........................

This is in another thread somewhere. Thomas threw the ball to Decker. Decker was going to throw it up in the air and Thomas was going to grab it and slam it over the crossbar. Stokley seeing this took the ball away from Decker knowing it would be a 15 yard penalty.

Actually, Decker was going to alley-oop it to Thomas and Stokley saved us from a 15 yard penalty.

It's been great watching them this year.

Looks like Manning might just turn Thomas into a superstar. Guy has all the physical gifts you could want, a few years with a player like Manning teaching him all the nuances of the position and he could become something great. Sky really is the limit for him.

Decker looks a good compliment on the other side. He won't give you the big play threat that Thomas does, but he's matching DT in terms of receptions on the year and after Sunday he now leads the team in TD's.

Looks like we have a pretty exciting starting pair moving forward. I really don't like our depth behind them at WR though, Stokely is obviously great as a slot guy but the dropoff from Thomas/Decker to Matt Willis is enormous. Need those guys to stay healthy.

I kinda would have liked to see the alley-oop celebration to be honest... I guess the thing to do would be to use the goalpost as a backboard and alley-oop it for yourself.

While we're on celebrations, I really would love to see a QB throw the ball clean out of the stadium after scoring a rushing TD one day. Just launch the thing as far as you can, would be pretty badass.

I saw Thomas do that too.

They need to bring Shannon Sharpe in as a TD consultant.

I dont think anyone has the arm to get it done. That is alot further throw than it looks. Plus in the off chance that someone 'could' make that toss, what if they hit some innocent bystander outside the stadium?

Hey if it lands in the stands then that's cool too, somebody gets a ball!

And if he hits someone outside the stadium then it'd be flat out hilarious, frankly.

Really happy with how the WRs looked this week. I was critical of DT a few weeks ago but you can really see remarkable growth in just a few games.

DT's first year he had to deal with injuries but in the SEA game he showed flashes right off the bat

His 2nd year he had to play with a punt protector for a QB enough said. I think DT was correct in his criticism after the season and put pressure on himself to step up

Now with Manning he's learned so much from the HOF QB and soaked up the knowledge to go with his freakish skillset

Kudos to DT

Actually Thomas was going to go up for an alley-oop, but Stokely stopped McCaffery from throwing the ball up.

Ever notice when a player from another team does it in our house, it usually doesn't bode well for them?

I notice over the top celebrations from me first media hungry players, and players who rarely get into the endzone.

The best kind of celebration is one that's acting like you been there before. A lot.

Anyone else remember that one time Stokley stopped Brandon Marshall from pulling out a black glove after a TD and saved us a 15-yard penalty?

Hmmm...that sounds extraordinarily familiar. Except last time Stokley had to intervene people around here called for the head of the receiver who attempted something similar.

We should have dunked it in the face of Graham to let Sproles know we are not cool with him mocking TD.

Big difference between a stupid celebration plot and acting like a petulant child punting ball instead of giving it to ball boy, always getting into off field trouble...etc.....wouldn't you say?
