    How many rookie WR's, in their very first preseason game, absolutely DESTROY a veteran DE ?

    This is the same play that VJ got his arms on the outside of the CB and was flagged for holding.

    Check out Davis' block toward the end of the play on Patrick Kerney. Davis comes from the left, in the middle of the screen, and just lays out Kerney.

    With WRs like Jackson and Davis blocking for LT on the outsides+this OL+Neal, it wouldnt surprise me if LTs passes last years total!(yards wise)

    I LOVE doin that as a WR. That is one of the best feelings you can have playing football. A crack back block, a sick cut on a kick return, and extending perfectly for a deep bomb are probably the funnest things about being a WR, to me atleast. I would play just hoping to get a chance to make a block like Buster did there.

    Mr. Kerney, keep your head on a swivel next time.

    That was nice, but I remember some play where instead of blocking the guy upfield, he was running back towards the runner. Backwards blocking or something. It did not look as good...:(

    I think it was Davis, but I could be wrong though.

    Blocking?

    Maybe that's what separates a first round pick WR (Davis) to a second rounder (VJ)?

    Wasn't VJ's sole purpose of being on the field a year or two ago, was to block at the WR position? He is supposedly a superior blocker for a WR. Buster's crack back was monsterous, but VJ has been blocking well for a couple years now. If anything, VJ was pushed up to the 2nd round BECAUSE he can block, not slid down to it because he can't.

    Davis is just nice all around, as a 1st rounder should be.

    Mr. Shamrock,

    Thanks for posting that, I missed it during the game. I love it when a WR takes the opportunity to knock the crap out of a DE. I'm really starting to like "Buster".

    I agree, the more I see Buster, the more impressed I am. This guy has Jerry Rice smoothness. I'm not saying he's going to be anywhere near Jerry as a player, but Buster just does everything at top speed, and he seems to do it effortlessly. Maybe that's why Buster was tagged as a guy in college who didn't have enough fire.

    That block tells me this kid has fire. He's just not a loudmouth.

    Yep, awesome block Sham! I caught that on Tivo re-watching, just before heading out this morning. I love that desire to hit from Davis. Blocking is all about attitude.

    As sweet as that looked, Davis needs to take care of his body so doesn't hurt anything either. Our WR corps has just been so fragile lately, that it's always in the back of my mind, whatever the WRs do. Just call me paranoid :)

    I thought about that as well although I love the fire. You can't teach that.

    Hey asela -

    One thing about football that I've always believed is that a player must not tone down his game to avoid injuries. It always seems like that causes more injuries than just playing the game hard - every play.

    A properly executed - and legal - block usually will only leave a bruise on either player. Same with Turner dishing out the punishment on the second Seattle DB in on the tackle. Play hard, and the other guy gets the worse bruise, and neither comes up lame.

    I think our WR's have been more prone to the leg and groin pulls/injuries than stuff from contact, especially collisions they initiate.

    I'm just surprised to see a rookie show that much awareness, and such a high willingness to block, in his very first action as a pro. That bodes well for his future, IMO.

    It was especially fun if you made the big guys grunt when you hit 'em.

    When most of our WR can block like that, that means even more production from LT and MT! :flag:
