After his breakout game against the Bills, Moore disappeared—leading me to believe he hit a rookie wall or just isn't consistent. But then I looked back through the games and saw that it wasn't Moore's fault at all.
Head coach Hue Jackson does a good job of playing to his players' strengths. Despite the big arm, Campbell is better at throwing short passes, and despite his blazing speed, Darrius Heyward-Bey is better catching them.
That naturally made Campbell throw Heyward-Bey's way as Campbell was missing all of his deep balls. In fact, Campbell missed Moore four times on deep balls with three of them open enough to get touchdowns on.
But Moore shouldn't take that personal as Campbell missed everyone deep against the Texans. Campbell then breaks his collarbone the next game, and the trade of Jackson's career was made for Carson Palmer.
After a rough start for Palmer and injury to Jacoby Ford, who Jackson was originally looking to make the No. 1 receiver before having hamstring issues to start the season, sprained his foot. Ford had a 41-yard catch early in the game before leaving, so Moore took over to the tune of five catches, 123 yards, and two touchdowns.
Moore also had an outstanding, 46-yard catch where he caught the ball by the back end of it. You can say Moore is back but he never left—he just needed someone to get him the ball.
