I wanted to share this message I received from Lance Moore's mother who is a registered member here at BlackandGold.com. Thought everyone would enjoy reading this.

Hi, RSII-

I've loved me some Lance Moore his whole life! It makes a mother proud that people finally know what I've known Lance's whole life -- that he is and always has been underrated. People assume because he's not the tallest guy on the field that he can't possibly be any good. They've obviously never seen the 41" vertical jump in person. Defenses everywhere have underestimated him forever. Not everybody has, though. One local news reporter in high school said the only way to guard Lance is to lock him on the team bus. I agree!

My favorite thing about Lance is that he's the same sweet, caring person now as he was when he was a little boy. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Lance has been making those acrobatic catches his whole career. At Toledo, Lance caught the game-winning TD, against a #9 rated Pitt, with 43 seconds in the game. It's known as "The Catch" at Toledo. For a lot of years after that, Larry Fitzgerald wouldn't shake Lance's hand because, as Larry put it, Lance ruined his season. Ha!

Anyway... I just wanted to say thanks for being a fan. It makes me happy when you good people appreciate Lance and his talent. I don't care what happens from here on out in Lance's career, because New Orleans will always be MY team. I live in Browns/Bengals territory and so it's great to have an awesome team to root for. (If anyone ever wonders why the Browns have sucked the last 7-8 years... It's because of me. They cut Lance on the last day of camp -- on his birthday, no less -- and so since then the hex has been on. I suppose I should get over it because they did Lance a huge favor. He would have never played for New Orleans, Sean, and with Drew, but still. A mother never forgets when her child is heartbroken. So the hex is still on!)

If you're interested, check out the BC Lions in the CFL and #17. Nick's a 6'2" version of Lance. He holds the receiving record in the Big House from when Toledo beat Michigan in 2008. Nick had 20 catches!

Have a wonderful weekend.
Debbie Moore

Re: Lance Moore's Mom says he's 'Underrated'

Welcome to B&G Mrs. Moore!

We wish more mothers would visit.. Mothers provide insight that Scouts just can not discover watching tape.

Feel free to give "that look" to any members that need it. I still get "that look" from my mother and I am 42 .

Re: Lance Moore's Mom says he's 'Underrated'

No wonder Lance is a standout player and an individual of impeccable character. His mom sounds like a loving and devoted parent. She has reared an outstanding young man and that's even more important than being an outstanding athlete. Although, the fact that the Saints have benefitted from his athleticism is pretty great, too!

Re: Lance Moore's Mom says he's 'Underrated'

Love the guy and I agree he's a bit under-rated, but he disappears at times.

I think he's one of those cat-quick match-up guys. If he up against one of those taller CB's who can't cut on a dime, he has the advantage. Up against a CB who can also cut on a dime, maybe not so much.

But I'm nitpicking.

Re: Lance Moore's Mom says he's 'Underrated'

LOL @ cut by Cleveland.......Mom, that was divine intervention....you should be thanking Cleveland every day for that haha. And cut on his birthday? Yeah, that was a birthday present !

The story kinda reminded me of one of our former punters...Klaus Wilsmyer. His career began by getting drafted in the 12th round by Tampa bay in 1992 (the early 90s Bucs were terrible), and got waived by them. Got picked up by San Fran that same season....and got to play in 3 straight NFC title games, which culminated with a Super Bowl victory in that 3rd season.

Re: Lance Moore's Mom says he's 'Underrated'

My favorite Saint by far

Won me over with that 2 point conversion in the SB, hence the avatar. To me that was the epitome of 110% I-will-not-be-denied type moments that make sports so fun to watch

Don't totally agree with u danno but lance dropping more than his fair share of passes is what keeps him from getting the big time attention he really deserves. He just sometimes loses his concentration on the easiest catches then makes these all world acrobatic imposible throws to him. But i see your point. Miss debbie is a class act person for raising an awesome football player and person.. And your right i'm kissing but.:
