Has a WR made a great catch this season????

Recommended Posts

Drop after drop and have to ask the question as to has a receiver made a great catch all year?  Don't say Holmes on that 77 yd td as it hit him right in the hands.

 

I'm talking a catch where the receiver is laid out or caught it with one hand or out-muscled a DB.

 

I think Holmes did adjust to one ball this year to make a nice catch with the DB tring to bust it up.

 

As said before, these receivers are just awful.

Neither were great catches.  They were catches. 

 

I mentioned the Holmes catch as I knew someone would say that.

 

Zay kept his feet in bounds and congrats that he didn't bobble the ball.

 

He is paid to make catches like that.

 

I'm talking a wow catch.

 

BTW the over-turned catch the last minute vs. the Dolphins was classic Zay.  He made a good play and then bobbled it and it hit the ground. 

 

Every week you see Thomas on NO, Antonio Bryant, Hill, Hopkins or Julio and countless others making great catches.  

 

Would be nice to see just one by a Bill.

Zay made a great catch and toe-tap on the sideline just last week...

 

For as terrible as Benjamin was, he also made a couple great catches.

 

As hard as it may be to trust these guys, Allen still has to give them a few more opportunities per game. And also take the check down when its there. Frustrating to watch sometimes, but he's a rookie. I think it should click next year.

nothing memorable to forget TE Clay and Zay butterfingering a pass right into their hands the last two weeks

What a ballerina.....  He toe tapped.....  Every receiver in the NFL is taught that.

I see your comments and raise you a big "no". The aforementioned catches were good, but not consistent. Every receiver can have a moment. I had mine back in the day. But there was a reason I did not go pro or even to a D1 college program. Consistent great catches, the ability to get separation at the next level. The ability to put a game on my shoulders with a "just get the ball to me" mentality.   Cooper is flashing what a true #1 does to an offense. How a great WR can change a game. And his team didn't want him. 

 

Not one of our receivers can even be a solid #2 on any other NFL team.  We've got some borderline #3's, mostly #4's and guys that would not even be on another roster. Yeah McKenzie, Foster and Zay are showing a little progress, but someone has to be the recipient. We need help at WR and none of these guys is a viable #1 WR.

The Zay sideline catch the week before was not a "great" catch, no way, not by NFL standards, that was a catch that is expected to be caught, as was Foster 75 yards TD bomb, it was not a difficult catch at all.

 

I know exactly what the OP is is getting at and I have said it all year long..each and every week we see these incredible catches on highlights reels, they are common place now, you dont see any that I can recall from the Bills.  Another indication our WRs, TEs suck.  A great catch would be one late in yesterday's game  in the end zone almsot out of bounds, with a defender on the receiver in the end zone...naturally we didnt hold onto it.

So if they're taught it it can't be a great catch?  It's a tough catch.

Yet, every week we see WRs fail at it. It's a great play showcasing great concentration.

 

Why so serious?

 

They obviously need an upgrade at WR. No one's going to argue that.

Because they're having a bad day and want to whine on the internet.

It was also defensive pass interference that was not called.

you said it, tough- not great.  Every #1 WR in the league should make that catch. Theilen and Diggs do it 2-3 times per week.

Man.....  people want everything and NOW.     Not every ball is caught.   Not every ball can be a "great catch".  If great catches were the norm 

They wouldn't be "great"

Yeah, I can agree with that.

I don't think Thieln/Diggs do it multiple times weekly...

No.  I've watched every game and there has not been a highlight reel type of catch.  The irony is the closest one was Allen's attempt in the back of the EZ yesterday. We'll need WR help soon or this kid will never be able to make that next step.

Sadly, KB made a couple.  He’s awful, but he made a couple I can remember when he towered over people to get a pass only he could.  Unfortunately he alligator armed or dropped 10 times more passes on what was an atrocious season by him.
