FINALLY, someone else remembers that catch also. I have said it before and will say it again. This kid can CATCH. It was not an easy play. Going over the middle, the pass was thrown behind him, SWEED reaches back and makes the catch while going to the ground. All hands no body catch.

I would love to see Sweed do well I know he can play but how long can we hang on to him if he can't produce. Come on Sweed it is now or never.

I remember this catch as well. It wasn't for a TD nor a huge gain. It was a chain mover, on a 3rd down, in a big game that kept the drive going. And yes, it was a difficult catch.

Sweed has excellent work ethic can run a good route but has problems in the most iimportant area catching the ball. It will take a long time of seeing him consistantly catching the ball before I will ever feel the confidence that he can catch a crucial pass. As someone pointed out he had problems in Texas as well so it seems to be a problem that is haunting him so who's to say if he makes it to the playoffs or even a Superbowl it won't haunt him again. Also as someone else pointed out he reminds me of Troy Edwards only we got some production out of Troy. WOW that's something I never thought I would say.

I also agree he can run why not make him a DB?
