  • DK had 95 yards and a TD, 23.8 average. But what's up with catching only 4/8, 50% of balls thrown his way? Outshined by J Jone's 9/12, 157 yds.

    Out of the 4 incompletes, how many were drops?

  • One bad drop, the rest were either good coverage or thrown away really.

    Why are we comparing him to Julio?
    He had a great game and came up huge, especially on that 4th down bomb.

    His play should be congratulated imo

  • What was Russ? 31 of 35 or something like that?

    One of them was a DK drop.

    Well I'm sure Julio Jones is ecstatic with the result then, seeing as how he outshined DK and all.

    P.S. J Jones is an elite receiver. He's going to outshine most other receivers in the league most weeks. DK is not an elite, dominant receiver. Maybe he'll get there one day, but he's not there yet.

  • Like Jerhawk said, 1 was a bad drop but it didn't cost us since we went for it on 4th down a couple plays later & DK caught the TD bomb. I turned to my wife after the play & said "I guess we'll have to take the positives out of that play that he didn't tip it high enough that it got intercepted".

    The only other incompletion that sticks out for me was a ball RW threw well behind him & would've been a great catch if he come up with it.

  • So in the "all" that we're talking about, is anyone going to mention the move he put on when he faked the slant and went back outside and was completely wide open? You know, the sort of move that he's not able to make, being just a speed guy?

    Yes, that was a great route! He executed that really well and can't wait to see more of that

    There was a bullet pass from RW that went behind DK slightly. It was very hard, but not a throwaway.

    Neither drop nor throwaway. One I guess he wishes he would have caught though

  • Atlanta had 3 receivers who, prior to late games, ranked in the top 10 of receiver performance league wide. Atlanta lost. Again.
    DK had a couple drops I'm sure he believes he should have caught, but overall a fine game to open the season. We won, thanks in no small way, to his contribution of a huge scoring play.

    Over the past six seasons, Jones has been THE elite receiver. We could name some dudes that have been among the best one to several seasons, but every single year over the last six years, he's been unreal in receptions and yards. He's made the Pro Bowl every single season in that span. And dhes' been first team or second team NFL All-Pro five of those years.

    He didn't become that dude until his fourth year. I think DK is doing just fine at this point.

  • I don't feel like dk got outshined.

    When you're playing from behind you're going to use Julio a ton.

    His drop was bad. He made huge plays all day afterwards. No biggie.

  • The one drop was definitely cringe-worthy, but overall a damn good effort. I thought Russ overthrew that TD bomb on the 4th down play, but DK reached out and pulled it in. Just keeping his feet on that play was pretty special.

  • It's also the first game against a real NFL team this season. We expect some glitches in pre-season and these guys haven't had any pre-season. Sure they did intra-team games, but that's not at full speed like gameday.

    I think DeKaylin Zecharius Metcalf will have a fine year.

  • NOt to offend but did the OP ACTUALLY WATCH the game?

    Or just the stat line? For future reference "Targets" to "Catches" stat line in no way indicates what was dropped


    He had one drop and a pass he needed to adjust for and missed thrown behind

    Funny you should say that. Watching the Chiefs/Texans Thursday night game, I saw Will Fuller unable to snag a ball and say to my self "Lockett catches that". Then I see Sammy Watkins for KC unable to make a difficult catch and I say to myself "Lockett catches that."

    And now it is Sunday and after watching other games with your comment awakening this idea, it finally dawns on me. Lockett has remarkable hands relative to what I am seeing elsewhere. Like I have to go back to Chris Carter to see hands like that and Carter may have had the best hands I have seen since Steve Largent. OBJ may have a three year old highlight reel, but Lockett's miracle catches are current and up to date. Yep, in my mind, Lockett has legendary quality hands.

    I don't know that it's all that flukish. DK is a mismatch, Russ will throw to him when he is not technically open, this will result in some incomplete passes, and some incredible plays.

  • in 2018 Russ had a perfect 158.3 passer rating when targeting Lockett with 0 drops or INTs. In 2019, Lockett had just 2 drops on 110 targets.

    The only thing that stops Lockett from being mentioned as a top NFL receiver is his lack of targets (~5 per game), combined with a relatively normal YAC (3.8) despite typically running deep routes. He often goes to the ground while securing the catch, which works but it would be nice to see us getting him the ball in open space a bit more often than we do.

    True.
    Russ doesnt like to throw away passes. He always wants to give his players a chance and will extend plays then force throws. Nobody better to force throws to than Lockett and DK.
    Julio didnt catch every pass either and was kept out of the endzone.

    and that nails TD on 4th down...……...that was nails right there.

  • DK had another hell of a game today. He smoked Gilmore, last year's DPOTY, on a huge touchdown pass. It seemed like Russell even underthrew the pass and DK had to slow down to catch it. Gilmore almost had a play on it since it was kind of underthrown but DK outmuscled Gilmore for the catch.


    How the hell did this guy last to the late second round?

  • 95yds and a TD... averaging 23.4yds per catch on the season... two TDs....


    If anyone is going to complain about that, they're the same type of person that would complain about winning the lottery because they have to pay taxes.

    DK is a BEAST, he's in his second year and making big time plays.

    Here's something you're going to hear a lot this season, "Wilson to Metcalf Touchdown!!!!!!!!!!!!" Book it.

    Yup, the same David Moore so many people wanted to cut. Moore has taken positive steps. Good punt returner too. Looking a little Golden-Tate-ish in spots now. It took Tate until his 3rd year for the light bulb to go on, maybe this will be Moore's big year too.

    DK was making catches and making him look mediocre, Gilmore tried to get him physically, dumb move against that man, DK drove him to the sideline with that block and Gilmore lost composure and that started the scrum.
