Damage Control Week 7: New Orleans Saints vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers – New Orleans Saints Football NFL News – NOLA.com
- Updated: October 19, 2012
The difference between an NFL receiver and a college receiver is that the NFL receiver does not slow down making his turns. This statement implies that the NFL receiver knows how to change speeds effectively with a bit of deception thrown into the mix.
Please remember the fact that once that receiver, such as Saints wide out Lance Moore, sustains a hamstring injury, this player may feel the effects for the remainder of the season, and possibly his entire NFL career, if he returns to action too quickly. Yet, staying out of action for any length of time means someone else will take his place in the lineup – perhaps permanently – the fear of many injured players.
