I can remember at least 5 times when Michael Thomas was dragged down or grabbed before the ball reached him with no call being made.

Physical wide receivers that went and took the ball out of the sky have always prospered above those that hoped it would land in their hands in this league.

We seem to struggle with TEs in that respect. Shokey and Graham (most of the time) were great at snatching the ball from no matter where its flight path was, our TEs lately however seem to take the 5gal bucket approach. If it isnt in the bucket...f3cket.

Coleston, Snead, M. Thomas, Cooks, Moore, all fought and went after the ball. Ginn and a few more prefer the 5gal bucket approach.

We're a small market team that doesn't benefit from the referee's bad calls.

The pick in the end zone in the loss to Atlanta represents exactly what you're saying. Drew took tons of heat for it, and nothing against Hill, but that one would have been caught by a better TE.
