That was one of his 40 times. He also ran a sub 4.4. He said so himself in a video asking why people keep saying he's not a deep threat.
I'm going to go with the offical NFL combine times. Every player at the Combine is going to say they are faster than their listed time.
And you're looking at Stills' numbers but I bet you didn't know he played slot receiver and ran a ton of short routes much like Moore does for us.
Then you would lose that bet, and it is what I mostly what I based that opinion off of.
In fact, here's is the link from right after we drafted Still where I made the comparison. LINK LINK
But yeah, I guess a guy that only caught 10 bombs would have a ridiculous average. What's your point there?
My point is, that's exactly what Morgan was. A go route runner that consistenly took the top off of defenses. Can Toon and Stills run go routes- Of course they can, don't be stupid, that isn't what I'm saying.
Fact is all 3 can run the 9 and I don't care who does it better.
I do, because that is the point of my initial arguement. If Morgan is better at doing it, and he was healthy, that's what he would be doing, and Stills and Toon co do work on seams, outs, slants, etc. Charles Brown can run a 9 route, but whether he is good at it makes a difference.
Toon and Stills have shown they aren't one trick ponies.
That's awesome, and have never argued otherwise about Toons, Stills, or Morgan not being a one trick pony. The fact that you keep mentioning these things (most of which I agree with) make me feel you don't understand my initial arguement at all, so I'll lay it out for you:
-If healthy, Morgan is our best deep threat, and that's mostly all he does.
-I believe Toon and Stills can run deep routes, but are not as good as a deep threat as Morgan, especially with out Morgan.
-This year, without Morgan, (both Toon and Stills' first regular season in professional football), it is hard to expect them to fill Morgan's role.
