Until next week yes. If he regresses then it's back to riding his arse.

Exactly... which was done quite a few times last year. That does not show up on the stat sheet and was also a culprit in his drop off in production.

I never understood the Devery bashing. Has he dropped some passes? Yes, but what receiver hasn't. And most of those were early in his career. Under Curtis Johnson (Rcvrs coach), Devery has turned into one of the most reliable and best deep-threat receivers in the league. But what I like most about him is that he's the anti-joehorn - no showboating, no loudmouthing, none of that. As a matter of fact, i have no idea what his voice sounds like b/c i'm not sure that i've even ever seen him do an interview.

Devery is doing a good job right now. His drops come from the way he catches the ball. He tends NOT to catch the ball with his hands. When he uses his hands he's great. In traffic he reverts back to coddling the ball and depending on how it bounces around in that bread basket, it can go either way. All the receivers do HANDS work. The more they do it the more natural it becomes. Looks like Devery is figuring it out.

Took the words from my mouth...he has deserved folks being critical of him. He had as great ball game this week and hope to see more of it.

I have always liked him.. He has always had that big play capability.. He is a guy that's been around for awhile now.. He came into the league with the dropsies, which he did have at LSU to.. But time has turned him into a good player for us. He has always been a deep threat guy. Flies under the radar for defenses to prepare for.. So I am glad he has been givin this chance to excel.
