Default Bradford wants the ball more

this is from the chronicle:

"When I do get the ball, it'll be a first down, touchdown or a big play. That's the way I look at it," Bradford said. "I know when I touch the ball, something will happen. I don't even need a step -- just put it in my hands and I'll make something happen every time."


something happens when he gets thrown the ball alright, he either drops it or a stadium full of people sit astonished that he made the catch. He talks about having 75 catches in one season and wondering what he could do with that many catches- can you imagine how many balls would have to be thrown to him so that he could catch 75?!

MESSAGE BOARD STAFF!!!- thank you for all the training camp coverage, it's awesome!

I hope they go Gaff's way more, too, but I do agree that Bradford needs to be looked at more often....

Using the stats from the previous 2 seasons, Bradford would need about 200 passes directed at him to finish with 75 receptions for the season. No, I'm not kidding.

Andre Johnson would need 146 pass attempts to achieve 75 catches, based on his reception % of 51.2 % in 2003.

maybe it's just me but i'd just like to see us pass the ball more and further down field when we do...who catches it is up to carr and the reciever...but hey if DD is gonna get his 2,000 yds this season that probably won't happen...good news...if DD is getting 2000yds a season i'd say we're probably play off bound

Now nobody take this the wrong way. I like Corey Bradford. I really do. I want to see him succeed as much as the next guy.

Having said that I think that we are going to be seeing the ball go further down field. I just don't think it's going to be Corey that it'll be directed at. It'll be AJ. At least not after this season unless Corey miracles up a case of sticky hands. We've all wanted to see that since the day he came here and it hasn't happened yet so there's not much reason to expect it to suddenly occur. Corey's always going to be the guy who drops passes that kill your soul and makes catches that you thought were impossible with no telling which one you're going to get.
