Your team's best wide receiver is being sued for fraudulently distributing millions of dollars worth of cannabis on the black market while my team's No. 2 option is making plays like this. We are not the same.
When I first watched this video and saw the initial grab, I didn't really get what all the fuss was about and thought I wasn't seeing something that everybody else was. And then right as that thought went through my head, Fabian Moreau kicked the ball out of Pitts' hands, only for him to find it and secure it again in traffic before it hit the ground. It was actually reminiscent of a certain Super Bowl catch that happened against the Falcons, because there is nowhere to go to escape that pain.
But I think this guy will do just fine. I'm still doing my best to temper my expectations of both Pitts and this Falcons offense as a whole, because it did still lose one of the best receivers to ever do it. But when you add a guy this talented to the likes of Matt Ryan, Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst, the air attack could be something special. It's just going to come down to what Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson are able to do at running back.
But if the early returns are any indication, Pitts is going to be a special player from Day One.
