Player Profile: Joe Horn
College: Itawamba CC MS
NFL Experience: 9
Catches: 94 Yards: 1399 Yds per catch: 14.9 TDs: 11
Interesting Stat: Joe Horn set new career records in yardage and touchdowns in 2004.
Playing Style: Joe Horn has average physical skills, but benefits from an ability to be an excellent target near the goal-line, and his experience, which allows him to get open on a regular basis.
2004 Recap: It was a tale of two seasons for the Saints as they started out poorly, but were very hot in the second half of the season. During the last 8 weeks of the season, he never had less than 64 yards in a game, and scored in six of the last eight games.
Positives: The team looks like it turned on the switch mid-season, and should carry that momentum thru to the start of next season. The team has tons of talent of the offensive side of the ball, and this will keep teams from giving Horn the attention he deserves. He is supported by a solid run game, and the team has many talented Wide Receivers to keep the secondary busy.
Negatives: Two words, Aaron Brooks. Aaron Brooks has not progressed as much as he should have over the last few seasons, and the team might make a move to another Quarterback in the off-season. Chances are that Brooks will be the starter week one in 2005. Brooks is very erratic, and when he self-destructs, the rest of the offense sputters.
The Bottom Line: Joe Horn continues to be one of the most consistent top tier Wide Receivers in the league. This will continue next year. While he gets more attention for his antics after he scores than his play, he is a stud Wide Receivers and one of the safest choices to be your number one Wide Receiver. Take him after Moss, Owens, and Harrison are off the field, and you may get the best value of the bunch.
Joe Horn: So we sign this fossil with the worst YAC's in the league, whose one of the slowest WR's in the league (see the NFL Challenge) to a 6 year mega contract? Hell we could have had Jerry Rice for the league minimum. I think Rice has proven himself quite a bit more than Joe Horn has. What a joke.
Sorry dude, but realism is my middle name.
You're right Danno. AB Rocks!!! Joe Horn sucks. Good thing we signed Nate Poole. He's poised for a huge year. Geaux Saints!!
