Yeah but how is that working out for Colston... not very well either.

Use Devery as a decoy to stretch the defense....teams have to respect the deep threat his speed represents. Take a shot or two every game...he has made big plays on the deep ball and it keeps the defense honest. Run the reserve with him as well. Otherwise, play Lance Moore. Dude catches everything! Colston, Patten and Moore works just fine. Don't forget our best receiver is Bush...

Re: Henderson ??? what happen

Well, I love Devery. I don't know what his real deal is. It would appear, he has played his way out of New Orleans. I do agree, that he is not a number 2, and is better at the 3 spot. As for the previous poster, I do not think Devery is a decent decoy anymore. He leads the league in drops and no one respects that. I hope Devery gets it together so he can contribute to the Saints this year, but I really hope he gets it together for the long run of his career. There is still hope for him!

Re: Henderson ??? what happen

The key to this offense is the ability (or perceived ability) to throw down the field. The OL must give Drew time to throw deep 3-5 times a game. That will keep the safeties honest and open up the short passes and running game. Devery is the only one so far that can do that. Meachum (if he ever gets on the field) may do it, as well.

Re: Henderson ??? what happen

It seems like he's distracted, not looking the ball all the way in, trying to do something else before he has secured the rock. Colston has had the drop-sies also, just not as bad as Henderson, and then he makes a catch or two to help us forget the drop. I think its mental. He has showed us that he CAN catch, he just hasn't shown us lately. I hope that he can work out whatever he is going through and get back to the place where he can be our deep threat and help contribute to our success.
