I was looking at the stats for these 2 players and I know white had been injured but come on it isn't even close when you look at the 2 players stats.

Finneran 19 catches 238 yds 12.5 avg 53 longest
White 2 catches 25 12.5 12.5 longest


Mora get your @^^^^ out of your %#^^^^ and look at these stats.Dez White's blocking can't be that much better and considering had yesterday's game been against a colts team or elite team and it cost us the game what would Jimmy say then.Bench White start Finneran he can only help the passing game!

If I remember right the #1 reason why Finneran kept sticking is because he is such a great blocker. I don't think Dez is any better of a blocker then Finneran is.

Yeah, this has STUPID written all over this.

If White is such a good blocker (per Mora), then is it an issue that he move to flanker. As I said in an earlier post on this subject a week or two back, I really think the only reason White starts is because he plays split end and Finneran flanker.

White is a veteran receiver, and should be able to make the position pretty easily. It would be one thing if we were talking about Roddy, but this is Dez. He knows the offense well (or he should), so learning flanker responsibilities shouldn't be too hard.

I know it may seem like I'm being too negative or fickle, but it's decisions like these and the fact that this team has little to no energy in road games that are beginning to have me sour on Mora.

I'm not ready to call for his head or job by any means, but I've come to expect more out of him.

I went back to the play-by-play records of the game, and Vick attempted to throw to Dez 4 times, all were incomplete. Dez also was called for a hold on a decent 1st down run by Dunn. The call was questionable if memory serves, but it was a mistake at any rate. Dez hasn't shown he can make catches when we need them. It's time to bring Finn or Roddy in to take over his position. I don't put this on Mora so much as I would fault the WRs coach or Knapp for not realizing this obvious issue. I think they will see for themselves if they have time during the Bye week to reevaluate the team a bit. Hopefully, they will see it this week and end our misery!

Mora-listen to the board. Dez is a step slow and a liability when we need a spark-remember that deep ball he just missed. He didn't go all out and that was a catchable ball. Start clutchy butterfingers
