King of the Deep



Nice piece by Weiszer today that looks at Tavarres King's emergence into an offensive weapon. He leads the team in yards per catch and is taking advantage of single coverage now that AJs back.

Durham we know is gone after this season. Green's ├╝ber talent is on par with Herschel, Hearst, Knowshon...and is above other red and black early entries into professionalism such as Hastings, Geathers. Hard to imagine he'll return once the emotions of the season die down into early January.


So King's emergence into the every down, possession type receiver is going to be something to watch. His 60 yard breakaway Saturday was a thing of beauty. Later he let a down and out go right through his hands near the goalline. If memory serves, that set up Murray to Green's spectacular TD throw on 3rd down.


But next season #8 won't likely be there to draw the coverage, or bail us out.
