Lance Moore Becoming One Of The Best Wide Receivers In The NFL
The New Orleans Saints have one of the best receiving corps in the NFL and part of the reason is the play of wide receiver Lance Moore. Moore has been very consistent this season and has become a big part of the Saints’ dynamic offense.
For the season Moore has made 28 receptions for 408 yards and two touchdowns. Furthermore, Moore averages 81.6 yards a game, which is good enough for 14th in the NFL. In the Saints’ 35-28 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Moore had season highs in receptions (9) and receiving yards (121).
Moore has shown that he can be a deep threat and at the same time has shown that he can pick up the important yards. Of Moore’s 28 receptions this season 26 of them have resulted in first down conversions which means that 92.9 percent of his receptions have been for first downs. Out of all the receivers in the NFL that have made at least 25 receptions this season Moore is first in first down percentage.
However, looking at the numbers alone does not do justice to Moore. Moore has been a very efficient and reliable receiver this season but looking at what he is working with makes it all the more impressive. Moore is putting up big numbers but he is not one of the “big” receivers in the NFL, literally and figuratively.
Moore only stands at 5’9″ 190 pounds but he is a fearless football player and deserves to be in the conversation as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. For now, Moore is fine with flying under the radar and he will continue to play big and help the Saints turn their season around.
