    Good quicks, pretty solid route-runner.

    Great hands.

    Aggressive open-field runner, good potential for YAC.

    By all accounts, solid character.

    It's a new day.

    Feel-good commentary on our new WR from the NFL Network dudes and Bill Polian.

    Hey, it's March. Enjoy.

    The pressing question is, will Hankerson sell #85, or will Garcon have his mojo ruined with a new number?

    Push Hankerson? More like mentors Hankerson.

    We can only hope Hankerson fully recovers from his injury, and becomes as huge as Garçon.

    McD5, not trying to rain on your parade, but Garcon has yet to prove he is better than a few of our past and a couple of current WR's. Moss has been far more successful than Pierre. Laverneas Coles was more successful than Pierre has yet to be.

    Just last year Gaffney had a very similar statistical season, which was Garcon's best statistical season to date.

    Don't get me wrong, I am pleased we signed him, much better than chasing V-Jax if you ask me. I just don't know how you can say he's so great when Garcon's best season was only marginally better than Gaffney last year.

    I know he has tremendous potential and I believe he will succeed here, but I am not sure how you can say we finally have a true WR.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    El, I've wathced him a ton. And he has two things we haven't had in a receiver here in a longgggg time:

    1. Toughness. Not Santana Moss toughness. Anquan Boldin toughness.

    2. He's always behind the corners for big plays. This guy takes it in for 6.

    I just read some comments from Shanny praising him....not that I ever believe anything a coach says when complimenting his own players(as if he would say anything bad), but he threw out a good stat from last season:

    In the entire season last year, our receivers caught the ball in the field of play, and then scored a TD only two times the entire year. Twice in sixteen games. That's unacceptable. Well that just changed immediately with Garçon coming on board.

    His hands are incredible too. Look at those videos above, and honestly tell me we've seen better catches in the last ten years.

    And as you know, stats have to be put into context. When you have Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, and you are the young kid? Well it's understandable that you have to really fight for balls.

    I love this guy. He's electric. He can break a game open quickly.

    I always like Garcon as a player.

    Did I think of him as a number one receiver, if honest no. Do I think he can be a number one. Yeah he has the ability, If he produces then all the better

    It does not matter how much natural ability you have, it is how you apply that talent that will determine how you are remembered.

    My major concern is drops, as he seems to have had a lot of them. If he can curtail those I think we will be happy.

    Please, no one take this as me putting these two on the same level. But it should be noted that our own HOF wide receiver, Charley Taylor, also dropped a lot of balls. We'll see if Pierre can make some of the unbelievable plays, and have the impact career Charley did. Which will easily negate the drops.

    I, for one, hope so.

    No conversation about WR should take place in a vacuum. Evaluating by numbers alone, without accounting for things like who was actually throwing him the ball, what his role was within the offense, how often his team was playing with a lead versus playing catch-up, etc., puts far too much of a premium on cold numbers.

    One would hope that the teams' eval of guys like Garcon and Morgan would have more to do with studying actual coaches film, and interviews with former coaches, and worrying more about things like route-running, ability to read-adjust at the line and on the fly, adjust to a ball in flight, hands, balance, YAC, etc.

    The Skins clearly like what they've seen in their study and evaluation, based on FAR more pertinent access/data than any of us here have access to. We get to see network broadcast TV coverage and study box scores. To not give professional evaluators at the very top of their profession the benefit of the doubt is kinda silly.

    Unless they're named Cerrato of course. Which, happily, ours aren't.

    Amen brother! Remember when he drafted Kevin Barnes because of a hit he made in college were the RB threw up? It was a great hit but I think that is the only reason he drafted Barnes.

    I've been asking everywhere, and looking everywhere for the nature and seriousness of Garcon's injury, but found nothing.

    I suppose no news is good news, in this case ?
