I cannot wait to see what Davon Bess can do when defenses have to defend against a legit #1 WR. Bess will kill defenses underneath with the yards after catch
Yes, I agree. Bess will get a lot of catches, which is why I don't think Marshall will be seeing 100 catches for a fourth straight season. It won't be that he's on a slump, it's just that A-Miami runs it more often than Denver and B-Bess will be open on every play.
Everyone wants to say that Bess is our new Welker...I believe he's just as good physically, but he really hasn't been in a situation that shows he has the football awareness of Welker (i.e. putting a foot out of bounds to touch a kickoff so the team can get it at the 40, letting his body go limp so he drops down in bounds on a critical 3rd down play against Indianapolis, or pulling the ball out of the air and immediately putting it in his left hand so the ball can touch the first down line instead of coming up short.)
This is a potent offense. I hope the defense can keep teams from putting 30 or 40 on us.
