I've been hearing variations on this same comment since last August. Anybody else think it sounds a little too simplistic? While having Moulds opposite would certainly take some of the defensive backfield attention off Price, I find it hard to believe that this explains his lack of production the last 18 games. Does this mean that if he were to line up with Moulds in Buffalo next week, he'd be a stud?
I haven't watched any Atlanta games, so I don't have another explanation, but I'm having trouble understanding why Price with Moulds is golden, but any in any other situation, he's garbage. Certainly there are lots of successful #1 WR's out there who were previously successful as the second or third option.
I tend to think that there must be other issues; perhaps imprecise routes, or less conditioning, or drive, or inability to 'connect' with Vick (and Doug Johnson), etc. I don't know....just seems like there's got to be a better (or more thorough) explanation.
