In all fairness to Colston... he goes up high to get the ball and leaves himself open to get the snot knocked out of him. The dropped TD could hardly be called a drop. It would have been another incredible catch by Colston.

Re: Best Hands on the Team....

Tough one...but I got to go with Shockey. He is making the adjustments to guarantee the catch - which means he's not getting much after the catch. Canton's not seeing things: Reggie is flat footed, having to stop, reach behind him and is losing his advantage on the outside when he doesn't get the ball in the right place. Great one-hander by Reggie yesterday. Shockey is earning his keep, and I'm glad to see it. Maybe Brees changed his socks or something, because he's been a bit high or a tad low, a little too much lead...can't put my finger on it. Even Brees' off-the-mark/out-of-sync days are better than most other's best day. I will be awfully glad when Lance Moore comes back. There's a different system clock ticking when he plays.

I say Colston but I voted for Shockey. Shockey is our best wr/te right now. He is catching everything coming his way.

Tough call, but I'm giving props to Henderson

Re: Best Hands on the Team....

Two years ago we were hoping that someone other than Colston could make a catch. Now we are trying to slice baloney awfully thin trying to figure out which of our all-pro receivers catches them best. It must be a terrible thing to have to make this choice. I feel your anguish.

Re: Best Hands on the Team....

I find it hard to blame Colston for any of his drops as Drew consistently puts him in tough situations when throwing him the ball. I said last preseason after a game that if Drew keeps leading him into big hits, he's going to get hurt... he did and still does it. Colston has great hands.

I went with Shockey although the margin this year is not far from first to worst at the WR/TE spot for this. All are playing well above average and drops have been limited.

Re: Best Hands on the Team....

Had to go with colston, the best after Moore cause he is amazing. Shockey after because I never saw him drop a ball. It's a tie between devery and meachem because henderson did improve and meachem always catches the big ones. Bush well bush does catch good but his catches don't go very far anymore. Nice one hand though.
