Well its a post right after Moore's best week as a pro, in our toughest game of 2010, and the week Colston drops 3 passes.

I'm surprised the poll was this close.

I will put it this way. With the way they are ALL playing this season..

5 seconds left on the clock and behind by 5 points. on the 50 yard line...

My choice is Moore... All day. Quite simply, he rarely drops balls that hit him in the hands, and he gains more after the catch.

While both Colston and Moore have a 67% catch rate, Moore has 5 TD's to Colstons 2.
FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS: Innovative Statistics, Intelligent Analysis | WIDE RECEIVERS 2010

Moore is Number 20 In the whole NFL in YAC (yards after catch).. Colston does not even make the top 20 for the NFC.

Henderson has a 59% catch rate.

We have a problem:

We have too many GOOD receivers and none of them will achieve EXCELLENCE because there are so many choices for Brees.

Now, it's a great problem to have, but it will eventually take a toll on the play of the receiver who is no longer in "favor". Favor in the sense that Moore is experiencing "favor" now.

Receivers play for; 1. A Ring (Sense of belonging) 2. Money (Security) 3. Touchdowns and yards (Future Security)

A ring can never be guaranteed.

Money can, but only if you are a standout. The Saints won't allow standout.

So all that's left is Touchdowns and Stats. With our breadth, no one gets their fill of that either. When you're HOT, you're HOT and when you're not, you're not going to play with the same agression as when you're hot.

My argument with respect to Meachem was that he rarely drops a ball and usually creates a big play when he gets the attention of Brees. I think he just needs a pink helmet, I mean, right now you can wear just about anything pink, right!?

Love the thread, guys.

Really passes the week to the next game.

Brees choices have nothing to do with Dropped balls % or YAC

This is true, and I voted for him, but he doesn't run the same routes as Colston. Man I swear he gets lit up over the middle at least once a week.

I get frustrated with every game I watch or go to and see Colston dropping the perfect throws, but then making an unbelievable catch when he's double covered and knowing that he's gonna get hammered as soon as he catches it. I believe that because of Colston, he has drawn the coverage away from Moore and some of the other guys because other teams still see him as a threat. Don't get me wrong, Moore has been a beast, but I've seen him fumble when it really hurt us. Never thought I would say it, but I'm going with Colston simply because he allows the other guys an opportunity to do what they do. Gotta respect dat.

"Six-Four walk the line. TOUCHDOWN Colston!"

I just want to back up and take back everything good I may have said about Meachem. I'm very disappointed this week. (after Panthers)

I'm looking to get behind one of our receivers but I'm frustrated with the lack of 'standout' consisnency.
