    One dropped catch, no matter how critical, does not make a season's statement, and should not define the man.

    On the other hand, he has not been given much opportunities. After today, he has 4 receptions in the 5 total thrown to him this year. That was at least double for all other receivers (WR/RB/TE) other than Foster, who had 5 receptions. Only Foster had more receptions yds (58) than Vickers (29) today:texflag:

    Me. His hands are bad news, he bobbled the few he caught today. Between him and Casey not ever being healthy FB might take some late round draft consideration.

    This^^^^. The guy has cement gloves on. He was lucky to hang on to the balls he did catch today.

    Leinert must be whispering in TJ's ear. I was in checkdown hell today. Not that it's all his fault since we don't have a decent receiver on the team when AJ goes down. Sure hope we address the situation in the off season.

    Hater alert. Vickers' receiving stats from last year were almost double of what vonta's were. Don't hate based on one catch. Jacoby bobbles quite a few balls, he doesn't finish those catches though. Vickers actually did.

    Then, again, it wouldn't be so bad if Jacoby would learn to bobble those balls and go on to catch 4 out of 5 coming his way.

    Hater alert? Do people still say that?

    Vickers game is dookie and he needs to be replaced. So he's twice the receiver Leach is and half the blocker. Awesome. That he's getting targeted at all is a pretty damning circumstance.

    Ah yes, the bobble catch technique. Quit trying to change his style, just go with the flow and teach the bobble first!

    Half the blocker? You're delusional.

    Even better. If you haven't seen the benefit of Vickers' blocking look at the two games he missed and our YPC. Blinded by the light, rolled up like a duece...

    Yes, it had everything to do with Vickers not blocking and nothing to do with an injured offense facing the #6 and #9 ranked defense.

    Just like Carolina eeking out 28 points had nothing to do with the fact they played the #1 defense. stats are just that, stats. The can be glaringly telling or completely misconstrued.

    You mean like how you used receptions to show how much better of a player Lawrence Vickers is than Vonta Leach?

    Casey should Have been the one running that route. He can catch.

    Vickers just can't catch when it's really, really important.

    **** Vickers. He shouldn't even be here. The Texans dropped the ball on getting Vonta back and now we have to run this dysfunctional piece of crap out there. He thinks he's a tailback just like Browns fans said. He can block but he's a downgrade at the postiion.

    We basically downgraded our FB so we could save the money and use it to not upgrade our WR (Jacoby). Every time I see Vickers **** up I get pissed about this all over again.
