In regards to DHB, we can't worry about his progression this season as much as winning some games. Right now we have two starting caliber receivers who could help us (Schilens, Murphy). DHB's got too much work ahead of him to be any sort of a factor, and it's going to take immense work in the offseason with Russell before I'd expect him to get a feel for the speed and timing of the pro game.
The fact that DHB is behind your 4th round rookie WR is beyond ridiculous.
Like someone else mentioned, the double standard for pass vs. rush TDs is a little annoying, but the rule is pretty clear and they made the right call. It looked to me like a simple rookie misqueue, which really sucks for Murphy b/c he looks incredible.
Basically, if the player is on his way to the ground (falling or getting knocked down) while catching the ball he has to come up off the ground with the ball.
Besides the drops, did anyone else notice DHB just completely failing when it came to running routes? On the play that Higgins got annihilated you can see him falling on his ass trying to run a comeback. I lol'd.
