Devery is finally getting an opportunity to start, and he's making the most of it. He is a case in point for why we shouldn't get too down on a guy for what he does at the beginning of training camp (or too up on someone like Hoss who practices well but doesn't have the speed and ability to perform as a starter when the action is for real). I'm proud to say I've always believed in Devery.
Devery hasn't had much playing time until now... with Colston hurt... he's gotten thrown to more... I like him as a deep threat WR, he's proven he can "go get it". I still think he needs to improve his route running and catching the ball more with his hands.
I have always thought that Devery would be a very good WR.... he just needs the chances to play... Haslett stunted Devery's progression by about 2 seasons IMO.
I'd also like to point out that Devery has 20 catches so far this year... 18 of them for 1st downs... 8 of them for more than 20 yards... with nearly a 20 ypc average.
ive alwaysstuck up for Devery and been a huge fan and its great to see him excel like he was meant to AND its great to see him get love and respect in the league.
Congrats to everyone else that stuck by him and welcome all that doubted its the best week yet to be a saints fan and I say that not only because I just sold my Devery Henderson rookie collection for 6K but because yet again everyone else lost that helps us and we crushed the flippin' falcons convincingly... again!
