METAIRIE — Calling a wide receiver a possession receiver, especially in the NFL, is like saying a successful quarterback is a product of the system he’s playing in.

It’s often viewed as a slap in the face, like being painted as someone whose skills are limited.

Not so with New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore or Denver Broncos counterpart Brandon Stokley, who could probably compare notes before Sunday night’s game in Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Players like Moore and Stokley, a star at UL-Lafayette in the late 1990s with former Saints and Carolina Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme, don’t get enough credit for what they do — which is make plays in the passing game.

They just sort of do it under the radar most of the time.

“Everybody wants to be the lead dog,” said Moore, who’s paid his dues while playing in the shadow of Marques Colston since 2006. “Once you understand your role and are OK with accepting it, that’s when you can become the type of player you want to become.”

Another practice squad player being coached up. I sure do miss our WR coach Curtis Johnson. That man made players out of Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem. Our young players need polishing.......the kind of thing that Johnson did so well was develop players. Something the rest of our position coaches need work on.

Henry Ellard has been quietly doing a great job.
