Re: Lance Moore Becoming One Of The Best Wide Receivers In The NFL

Its funny , I must have fought 50 threads over the years at saints report .Where the prevailing thinking was that he was to short and we should trade him.,lol. We only really needed Moore,Colston, and Henderson, Meachum was a luxury , and I thought took to much time from Moore.
With Morgan in the rotation, I actually think the WR core is better than it was, because Moore is a master at getting open, and runs the best routes.
Hes always trailed welker in catch %, and thats not even fair because he didn't have near the play time of welker.

Time to make the DOMENuts !!!!

Lance Moore is crucial to our offense

He's the master at finding the hole between the zones, when he does brees threads the needle and there you go - first down

Not to mention he has the best hands in the league

Lance Moore Becoming One Of The Best Wide Receivers In The NFL

The New Orleans Saints have one of the best receiving corps in the NFL and part of the reason is the play of wide receiver Lance Moore. Moore has been very consistent this season and has become a big part of the Saints’ dynamic offense.
For the season Moore has made 28 receptions for 408 yards and two touchdowns. Furthermore, Moore averages 81.6 yards a game, which is good enough for 14th in the NFL. In the Saints’ 35-28 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Moore had season highs in receptions (9) and receiving yards (121).
Moore has shown that he can be a deep threat and at the same time has shown that he can pick up the important yards. Of Moore’s 28 receptions this season 26 of them have resulted in first down conversions which means that 92.9 percent of his receptions have been for first downs. Out of all the receivers in the NFL that have made at least 25 receptions this season Moore is first in first down percentage.
However, looking at the numbers alone does not do justice to Moore. Moore has been a very efficient and reliable receiver this season but looking at what he is working with makes it all the more impressive. Moore is putting up big numbers but he is not one of the “big” receivers in the NFL, literally and figuratively.
Moore only stands at 5’9″ 190 pounds but he is a fearless football player and deserves to be in the conversation as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. For now, Moore is fine with flying under the radar and he will continue to play big and help the Saints turn their season around.

Re: Lance Moore Becoming One Of The Best Wide Receivers In The NFL

Our offense is finely tuned to exploit the various talents of each player. Some of them we are figuring out how to fit, but others are unique and nearly irreplaceable:
-Drew
-Pierre
-Jahri
-Darren
-Marques
-Jimmy
-Lance
-Devery (There are players who could do what he does, maybe better, but not at the price we have him at, and few if any that block the screen as well as he does.)
