After catching a pass from both Big Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees, Lance Moore is blessed, saying:
“I definitely count my blessings every day to be able to play with somebody like a Brees or a Roethlisberger,” Moore said. “Honestly, leaving New Orleans was kind of scary for me because I had that comfort in a quarterback that had broken so many records and obviously won a Super Bowl. To get somewhere like the Pittsburgh Steelers that has a quarterback that has won a couple of Super Bowls, it is definitely something that I am thankful for.”
But he did mention to the ESPN reporter that Big Ben did have a stronger arm.
“I would say that Ben has a little bit stronger of an arm, maybe a lot stronger arm,” Moore told ESPN. “Just from the last couple of days with him here, that’s something that kind of jumps out at me. If you are kind of lazy with your eyes the ball will zoom right past you. That’s something that I will have to adjust to. I feel like the quarterback should never really have to adjust to the receiver.”
The comment mad the Saints fans and followers very upset. They began to attack Moore on twitter. Twitter had to respond saying:
“Everybody down south is mad now? Never said I disliked Drew or am not thankful for my time w him. Wouldn’t be where I am w/o him. Chill out”
Moore will be a huge part of the Steelers offense, and I honestly do not feel that he was trying to dog out Brees, but let’s face it, Big Ben does have a bigger arm. It is obvious….
