Yes, making the decision quickly and sticking with it is the key...to catch or not to catch. But as he will be fighting for a WR spot and won't likely return any more kicks, I'm fine with him. All reports say he is working his rear end off and players are going out of their way to let him know the past is past and they want him on the team.
Still...he had six or more really questionable plays that made me wonder, after the game, whether he was being paid to take a dive. Never seen one player make so many game changing, bonehead moves. Diving for the ball on a punt, dropping a lateral on a reverse, having the ball hit his leg on a punt return, holding the ball out away from his body as he ran into traffic where it was stripped...just amazing!
