He fell off the map real quick.

I remember he was a big play guy for Washington not too long ago, what happened to him?

What was this guy's deal? When McNabb was at quarterback he lit it up and he hasn't done anything since.

EDIT: looks like I'm not the only one wondering.

Get physical with him and he can't get deep, negating one,if not his only, assets.

Armstrong got bumped by the acquisition of Jabar Gaffney who's probably going to be more reliable. Armstrong had a few chances and mostly dropped what went his way and was otherwise covered well.

We also have Marlon Moore who's a real solid Special Teamer for us who has had a couple big receptions for us lately, one for a TD at home and one this past weekend against the Jets.

I guess Armstrong just got too far down the list and the team decided to boot him, I guess.

We're also all waiting to see what develops with the rookie WR we kept (Reshard Matthews) who seemed to be a rather big guy who caught most everything thrown his way during pre-season. No one quite knows why we've seen neither hide nor hair of him since. He's on our Active Roster though so it looks like this for us:

1.) Brian Hartline
2.) Davone Bess
3.) Jabar Gaffney
4.) Marlon Moore
5.) Reshard Matthews

Story. Over. Laughing

I guess he's Mike Thomas's replacement. I guess you could do worse.

I like this move, ive seen plenty of washington games and when he was there he was making some big plays, but his hands are suspect

He has deep speed with suspect hands.

With Gabbert 6 for 17 for 197 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT...I question how much of an impact Anthony Armstrong will have. The majority of Gabbert's yardage comes from passes throws between 21-30 yards. Armstrong's true value is when you have a QB who is able to toss it 35+ yards with accuracy.

We're opening up the playbook and pushing the ball downfield more the past two weeks. In that sense, he fits. I don't expect much if any impact, but we'll see. He can't be much less valuabe than Mike Thomas was.
