some times you get these really fast guys with poor concentration misjuding the pattern of the ball, not getting their body into position to make the catch, not adjusting well when the ball is in the air or just plain dropping balls that are thrown right to them.
I agree Hov. What your talking about, in my mind, is a number 1 WR. I like those guys better as well. I think that KJ was that kind of guy. I know Irvin was that kind of guy. I like watching them work much more then I do a speed guy, who is typically the number 2 WR. It's very difficult to find WRs who have both speed to burn and the mentality and ability to be the #1 guy. Few and far between are those guys. You need both to have a real good offense IMO but I do agree. I like guys who make the catches you have to have. Do the dirty work and take the tough hits.
