He had a lot of trouble catching the ball this year early on.

Yes, but he has to catch the ball. He seemed to have trouble adjusting to the speed/strength of throws. He will put in the work and figure out how to do it. He did it before when he converted from RB to WR at UMass.


He was only targeted 13 times and caught 9 passes. Throw the kid the ball and I bet he catches it much more often than not.

In preseason he was targeted and did not catch it. Reports from Arizona were circulating about this in the preseason.

You said early on, but I appreciate you being specific this time.

Either way, they buried the kid for little to no reason. That's a big reason why they went 5-10-1.

Yes. He was buried for sure and it has to do with the amount of receivers they had as well as the early struggles and also probably not knowing how to integrate him. He is much more than Edelman, etc. He is so fast...

Kliff Kingsberry will be back coaching college within 3 years. Not impressed with him at all.

Always appreciate your fandom IV but if Isabella played every snap for Arizona they would have finished no better than 5-10-1 :lol:

They lost 4 games by less than a TD, 1 game by a TD and 1 game was a tie. I think if they had better utilized him, especially his downfield explosiveness, they could have won a few of those close games.
