Not certain, so I didn't say it. Not sure if I knew for sure I'd even want to say because people blow up selective things bigger than just one play which seems a little unfair.
Will say that JJo was plaguing Schaub on Day 3. Busted up plays to both AJ and Hopkins.
OTOH, Schaub to Hopkins 30 yards down field was a thing to behold. Didn't think Hopkins was going to get it but I love how when the ball is in the air, he just has more want to for it. He attacks the ball, doesn't just wait for it.
It's weird to talk of wide receivers being aggressive, but with his hands/body positioning, he collects the ball as soon as it is anywhere near him.
(I know there was a Chron article talking about how Martin and Jean are better this year. And they are. And that they are ahead of Hopkins in the playbook. And they are. But Hopkins is just such a fun receiver to watch in ways that the collection of WRs post-AJ aren't. Both AJ and Hopkins are the kind of receivers who do stuff in practice that make you go whoa a couple of times a practice. There's a reason why Hopkins is playing with the 1s--learn up faster, and because whoa that upside. Love watching him play.)
