Moss' greatest skill...

Recommended Posts

I'm so glad I bought this guys jersey.

I'd say it's adjusting to the ball, but he does all of those things so well, its really hard to say...

One thing thats not on the poll is that the guy is clutch. I'd like to see how many 3rd downs he's come up with this year. He carried us in the seattle game on some crucial drives, and the MNF game goes without saying. I haven't seen him drop a pass this year (thank christ i was out of town for the first giants game) but he has routinely come up with big catches. He has a knack for the moment.

It's all of those things..he does them well..but what stands out to me is his ability to adjust to the ball when its in the air and make a play on it.

To think...this is only his first season in a Redskin uni...imagine how good he's gonna be next year. We probably need another decent #2. But i dont think 1600 yards is out of the question.

Personally, I think his ability to adjust to the ball in the air is his greatest ability. With that, he puts himself in a much better position to catch a ball then normal.

His route running is on point. That should be an option. Running precise routes gives him the ability to do all these options. It's also probably the thing he most prides himself on. I read some interview back in the day where he practiced his route running as a kid.

I have been really suprised by his YAC. He seems to break tackles and juke players out of their socks. I thought he would be more of a pure speed threat, a la Peerless Price. But he has been much more than that.

i picked abilty to change direction, but that's only because i firmly believe that his route running ability is about as good as you can ask, i mean, it's that good because of his speed and ability to change direction, but he has all the keys.

Speed. It's his speed that creates his runs after the catch and his speed that lets him changes directions so quickly. Hands come second. He hasn't droppped many passes this season. He's also very good at catching the ball around the sidelines and dragging those million dollar feet.

I'm w/ Shiraz (and the ppl who agreed) ... tho I don't know if a 17-year old should have that name ;)

I love the way he comes back to the ball ... he runs the routes well, but he does a great job of getting himself in a position to make the grab without needing to muscle out the DB (which may or may not be a problem) ...

His ability to separate from the defender while running his route is a major plus. :cool:

His ability to change direction in mid-air is amazing :cool:

He runs the WR screen very well. He scored six against the gnats last Saturday on that play.

I like the way JG is moving him around now. He goes in motion a lot more;

so the safety will not be able to double him as they did when he stayed split out to one side. This gives him a lot more one on ones :cool:

It was a tough decision, but I went with his "ability to change direction on the fly"

I've never seen someone do it as well as him, he is just the quickest, most agile guy on the team, maybe in the NFL.

He reminds me of Allen Iverson, because he is so small, yet he can still dominate.
