Wright had career highs in catches (8 ) and yards (132), outgaining not only his teammates Cordarrelle Patterson and Greg Jennings, but Falcons wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White. Its Wrights first career game with 100 receiving yards and the only receiver to eclipse the century mark.

Wright: I thought about that myself; I was like, You know it took me three years to get this game. It came for me, and Im just going to keep building on it. Teddy knew where to put the ball. In a couple throws, Teddy knew exactly where to put the ball to me, and he knew exactly where I was going to be. I kind of knew where to expect the ball. Our reps together definitely paid off for us. A lot of trust."

were being backups together the key for Wright's breakthrough?

It seems like that would be some of the case. However, he has had solid games in the past. In his rookie year he had some pretty good games towards the end of the year. Last year was disappointing to see that he didn't step it up, but this year, I'd like to see that step made.

Lot of people around here have said that it can take 3 years to develop a good WR. They could be Wright on this one as well.

I remember how good I thought he was coming out in 2012. I see no reason why he can't be as good or better than TY Hilton, a very comparable receiver in that draft.

Its moreso that there is a QB back there who deliver the ball on time when he gets open... additional playing time doesnt hurt as well.

Wright was the reason why I felt good moving Harvin. It's nice to see wright developing into a boundary receiver and overall threat. Cutting Simpson was the right move.

I think it had a lot to with Teddy being at the helm. Bridgewater sees the field better than most QBs, he gets into his dropback quickly and scans the field faster than the average guy. Combined with his ability to throw with anticipation, he's able to find the open guy wherever (a la Aaron Rodgers) or conversely, throw a guy open (the Greg Jennings 30+ yard play).

Jarius is no slouch in his own Wright. As a prospect, his biggest plus was his ability to find the soft spot in the defense. He's a great route runner who knows where to sit down and find the QB. He had 13 for 280 against Texas A&M his senior year in large part to that ability. He had a beautiful route down the sideline yesterday where Teddy missed him deep. That's what Wright brings to the table. Not a burner or even a contested catch guy but he will get open. Nice to have him and Jennings while Patterson continues to develop as a traditional receiver.

Simpson is and always was trash.. the post made the day we signed him will verify that. He only got a contract because he flipped over a defender nothing else. He's just like every other non descript 5th or 6th WR who latches on and fades away into obscurity..

Wright, Thielen and Smith are way better choices to keep on the roster I am glad they got it right finally

breakdown of Wright's 52 yard catch and run early in the ATL game:

savagely effective team blocking.

I always pictured this type of play from Wright, but it was going to take him not being a focal point, and a competent QB.


I don't think he will put these kind of numbers up week in and week out, but, 70, 80, 90 yards every other week. I can definitely see that.

That's broken down beautifully.

I thought it was interesting that he was the recipient of all the bubble screen passes, while Patterson was on the other side of the formation. I know that we were probably using Patterson as a decoy, but I wonder if it could possibly be used to set up another play for him later in the season.

He would've had a lot more yards and another TD if Teddy wouldn't have missed him deep. He needs to fix his deep ball accuracy.

Maybe Jarius needs to run faster?
