    “I take pride in catching the ball because I’m not as fast as the guys that we have here, but I think as far as being able to catch the ball, that’s what helps me,” (Derick) Armstrong said. “My teammates depend on me so I know I have to do well. I know I have to do good for my family also. If I don’t make those catches, I could be right back out there.”

    He may not have the kind of speed to stretch the field, like a Cory Bradford, but to me, he sure seemed to have enough speed on that clutch 4th quarter catch in the Chiefs game.

    I would have to agree. Armstong has a more complete package. It sure would be nice to get him in the game more.

    Altough this is specualtion on my part, I dare say Armstrong is as fast as perhaps faster than Jerry Rice, the best WR of all time.
