Manningham made his season debut last week in a relatively quiet form. Credit the Carolina defense for a job well done as Manningham caught three of his six targets for a dismal 30 yards.
Expectations for Manningham are rightfully high as his presence could really open things up more in the passing game. With his ability to stretch the field, Manningham will pull plenty of coverage his way which will eventually open things up for Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis. Unfortunately, much of this may be put on hold again as the Saints pass defense is giving up just 200 passing yards per game and have allowed just nine touchdowns through the air this year.
