    That 35-yard scamper by Nate on Sunday was great, he should definitely be getting more looks.

    Wright has that insane juke that totally fakes out his down field blockers, Ill take Nate and his YAC over Wrights huge plays that get brought back for holding or blocking in the back.

    Nate is our security blanket guy. He is great in the role he plays now..I see no need to change that. I would like to see more consistent play from some of the other recievers and Locker spreading the ball around which will also help Nate be more involved because teams will figure out that the balls going to him in crucial situations. Get the other recievers involved more and keep defenders guessing!

    Hunter is a better decoy anyway.

    He is a little taller, can jump higher, and is actually a threat to come down with the ball.

    Yea I can't tell if that is Wright's fault or just his teammates learning to block with a shifty ball carrier.

    Nate is Jake's security blanket and will continue to go his way but Jake is spreading the ball around just about right.

    Its Wright, he's unpredictable, which in some ways is great, but not when he has blockers ahead of him. It completely forces the DB to turn his back and make the blocker susceptible to making an illegal block in the back. Its a stupid rule DB's take advantage of, its easy to fake a hold or block in the back, its a joke.

    How many more looks can he get? Locker threw the ball 37 times and Nate had 13 targets. That's more than a third of Locker's attempts.
