Week 5 Game Ball: Malcom Floyd

8 catches, 213 yards, 1 TD

All I kept hearing on Sunday was how much Malcom Floyd looked like Vincent Jackson out there, ripping up the Raiders defense. Maybe he had finally raised him game to VJ's level? Let's break this down real quick:

  • Did Vincent Jackson have any 8+ catch games in 2009? One, and funny enough it was against the same Oakland Raiders.
  • Did Vincent Jackson have any 200+ yard games in 2009? Nope.
  • What did VJ's stats look like after the first 5 games of the season when compared to M80's? Let's take a look....

Vincent Jackson - 24 catches, 419 yards, 3 TDs
Malcom Floyd - 22 catches, 498 yards, 3 TDs

Can we stop with the argument that Jackson is the better receiver now? Obviously they're at least close enough that either one could be better than the other on any given week. I think this game in Oakland was Malcom's introduction to the rest of the league as a #1 WR, and that's the biggest reason he gets this week's Game Ball.
