Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson says time and again that, "it’s all about performance."
Rookie wide receiver Denarius Moore is on the verge of putting that idiom to the test.
Every day, Moore not only is the best wide receiver on the field, he is often the best player, period. It has reached the point where this isn’t some one-week wonder, flash in the pan or fluke. The man can flat out play.
That’s what Jackson says he is looking for, playmakers. No one personifies that more than Moore, a fifth-round draft pick out of Tennessee.
On Sunday, Moore was at it again. Not once, or twice, but three times he had fans and teammates oohing and aahing over his ability to get open, adjust to the ball flight, get position on the defender and make a play on the ball.
Moore is again generating more positive press. If he keeps it up and lands a starting job, he might very well be worth a late-round flyer.
