That grab down the sideline was ridiculous.

A lot of our guys really stepped up down the stretch last night, but Byrd has impressed me more and more this year. Coming in as the speed guy I never expected much more out of him other then to burn coverage and catch easy wide open bombs. He's made some crucial catches all year.

I said this to my brother last night as we watched the game.. He's becoming (or has become) a complete receiver! He's not just fast. He can make the tough catch, he is running much better routes, he can break tackles and... did I mention he is really fast?!

Legit WR, now. I'll admit to not being high on him originally because of how past "track guys" have not translated to football very well, but he's proven me very wrong - great to have him.

Agreed about Byrd. He's tough and his blocking has improved, too.

If Roland can get going, our receivers are a load for anyone.

Bruce Ellington: Smooth, intelligent, gets separation and has incredibly soft hands and total body awareness, keeping feet inbounds when it seems damn near impossible. Perhaps his biggest attribute is that he does not bobble the ball on this catches. Pro quality receiver for sure.

Nick Jones: Undersized, but runs great routes and fights like a maniac for the ball. Mr. Clutch. Seems to be mature beyond his years and Spurrier noticed that a season ago.

Damiere Byrd: Vastly improved on getting separation and running routes. He can torch another team's best defender at least a few times each game. Blocking was atrocious earlier but apparently has improved. Surprisingly, he is willing to get totally clobbered to pull that ball down. He is not just a track star. He is turning into a lethal threat that can put us back in any game at a moment's notice.

We've got others that have talent and contribute, but when these three are healthy (and Bruce doesn't have a tight hammy), they are creating some serious separation and are giving our quarterbacks excellent targets.

What I love about the game is how you get to see young men develop right before your eyes. These three have become stars through nothing but mental focus and hard work. It's paying off BIG TIME.

Congratulations to three very fine men whom all of us admire.

I'm always a little nervous with Byrd, because with his size he can get blown up pretty easily. But the dude is tough.

Hopefully we'll see a similar transformation into a complete, consistent WR with Roland.

He certainly is tough and will only get stronger during the off season.

Bruce has bobbled at least a couple balls this year,Jones has been in the system for a while so he's supposed to be mature, and Byrds been getting separation since he got here... I like our WRs too though...

How good would he have been if he'd had the eye surgery earlier? He's becoming the most consistent receiver over the last few weeks.

Everyone talks about Byrd's speed but his hands are really underrated. He's also a guy who's not afraid to go over the middle.

Game film will clearly show that this was not the case previously. This was driving Spurrier nuts for a guy with world-class speed.

Dylan also missed him on a sure TD. Byrd was by the CB by 4 yards.
