This is true! Game speed is something different and route running makes all the difference in the world. Armstrong runs great routes. Everyone likes the TD catch in back of the endzone or the leaping catch for the big yardage but my favorite, which to me is the reason Armstrong should get the start, is a 3rd down catch on our end of the field with a pretty good coverage toward the sideline and in the flats. Armstrong goes up and snatches the ball over the defender. It was almost Andre Johnson like without all the yards.
Let him play, it can't hurt!!
