    Not sure if anyone knew this, but CC is in the 'best hands' contest in this years skills contest. Should be good to watch....and if he tries for some behind the back one handed eyes closed grabs, maybe he won't drop one.


    He could be in the fastest man event too maybe. Pure speculation but it says they will have 8 comeptitors, and only four are listed.

    He's much better at the acrobatic catch than the easy one's.

    It's nice that you posted that, I figured Chambers would be in it, becuase it's a Wide receiver/TE drill. All the probowl WRs compete in it.

    NO, I would be even more disgusted with some of his play last year if he won that.

    Ok let's start the agrument again. I have had the position ALL last season that he was inconsistent. I have not changed my view. He is a probowler, and he had a good season overall. In My OPINION he was very inconsistent. When you make a One handed, Mid air, Behind the back, While doing and 1-1/2 inward tuck, and catch the ball, then miss one that hit's you in the hands while standing still, that is inconsistency. Just because the guys make the probowl doesn't mean he can't improve.

    Yup, and I say that as a big Chambers fan. He was much more consistant late though, I just hope he carries it over into next year and continues to improve.

    I agree with you that he was inconsistent, and he can improve on the "simpler" catches. However, he did have a slow start, but came on strong towards the end and was a major part of our late season win streak. IMO

    I agree with the above 2 posts, he did play better the last 5 games of the season. I can accept him dropping the "circus catch". It just drives me crazy seeing the easy one dropped.

    Well I'll be happy for him if he wins it, just let it go no point dwelling on last season, just look forward to next season. chambers doesn't have to win best hands competition to win overall, I think I remember seeing that there will be four stations that the Wr's will compete in, the best hands drill is one of them, but He could win overall from the other stations., I think.

    No offense intended, but he'll probably catch all the high ones that most guys struggle with and drop the ones that hit him in the stomach.

    I'd like to see Welker in the fastest man event. That guy looks ridiculously fast on returns.

    Do they do it the same way the college guys did it? with the machines fireing the balls at 70 mph at them?

    Sinorice Moss almost got his head taken off in that one

    He should stay away from the fastest man competition. No way he could beat Jerome Mathis or Deangelo Hall.

    That's good news for him. Hopefully he won't do what Gonzo did last year by quitting because the balls hurt too much while trying to catch them.

    considering neither school has a football program, that's a safe guarantee.
