Default What happened to Willie's receiving skills?

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 That's why those passes should be save for Moore.
