Denarius Moore Bringing the Vertical Game Back to the Silver and Black


Raider Nation has been dying to see Denarius Moore do his thing. His training camp exploits were quickly becoming the stuff of urban legend. Each day the reports coming out of camp were of how amazing Moore was. Jason Campbell was comparing him to Jacoby Ford after one week of practice.

When he was given the chance in the preseason Moore did well to live up to his legend. The 5th round pick out of Tennessee was looking like a real steal and a safe bet to contribute in meaningful ways once the regular season rolled around.

After a listless debut in Denver, Denarius had a coming out party in Buffalo.

Without their top three receivers the Raiders turned to Moore in hopes he’d step in and step up. Not only did Moore play brilliantly he proved why he should be the team’s top target going forward. It was all on display as dazzling catch after dazzling catch crushed the Bills’ secondary and even got some roars out of the home crowd.

Finally Al Davis has his coveted deep threat and Oakland’s offense has a perfect compliment to the running game. Denarius Moore singlehandedly brought back the vertical attack. Just think what this offense will be like once Jacoby Ford is back at full strength. Until then just enjoy Moore’s amazing performance with the video below.
