I know he is a good runner, but Willie would be as dangerous as Westbrook if he could catch. That first QTR drop was absolutely atrocious.

He was much better as a receiver in his rookie year.

Honestly, Willie has never been very great shakes as a pass catching RB. HE HAS improved his pass blocking, though.

Memo would still be running...

What receiving skills? Willie Colon would probably be a better receiving threat out of the backfield.

Yeah, Parker is not a good receiver and it looked like he lost sight of the ball.

Willie can't catch a cold. Players cheer loudly at practice when he actually catches a pass.

if he had caught that ball hines wouldnt have gotten hurt.. i was pissed as all hell when hines got hurt because someone on our team always seems to get injured after we blow a great opportunity. i was just waiting for ben to get destroyed after sweed dropped his pass.

Sorry but I wasn't aware FWP had receiving skills to begin with :chuckle: That's why those passes should be save for Moore.

What receiving skills?

The few catches he had early in his career came mostly from screens

It would have been sweet if he caught that though
