That may be true, but Moss is still injured (he doesn't have the same burning speed as he normally has right now) and the Jets pass defense is very good. He hasn't done jack for several weeks (even the weeks with TD's were low yardage). I've had enough of Moss for now, especially with the QB change. I'm staring Wayne, Housh, and Bruce this week. It'll stay that way until I see Moss running at full speed and him getting at least 10 looks a game.
i originally thought that moss would be the go to guy, as well...but the more I thought about the state of moss's health, i realized that he couldn't be the man...and that lamont jordan will probably be the top receiver for tui. i'm going to say that tui will be checking down a lot and dumping off to lamont jordan. also, courtney anderson is a HUGE target...he's 6'7"...he will also be a big time contributer in the passing game. I think anyway...these are just typical security outlets for new qbs. but, at the same time, a new qb usually seems to focus on one downfield target...i wouldn't, however, expect that to be moss. it seems when guys come in to replace the #1 qb, that they don't have the same chemistry with the starters that they have with the #3 or #4 wrs...I'd look for gabriel's looks to increase. These are just some thoughts...in no way do i think this is gospel, or trends that are set in stone. who knows, maybe this whole week with the first team tui has gotten more accustomed to the starters. but i still think that gabriel will have more impact than usual.
