Gibson Turning Heads at Practice

Rookie wide receiver Brandon Gibson has been fighting to get some playing time during the regular season, and certainly helped his cause with his performance at practice over the past few days. During reps today with quarterback Michael Vick, Gibson was able to make not one, but two fantastic one-handed grabs. When questioned after practice, Vick was quoted as saying:

"I've never seen that," Vick said. "Let's hope that once he gets out there in a game he can make those same types of catches and I think he will."

Although Gibson didn't receive any playing time during week one's matchup against the Carolina Panthers, the recent release of wideout Hank Baskett has narrowed the depth chart from seven receivers to six. Gibson plans to make the most of this opportunity, and has been continuing the lights-out performance he displayed during preseason, where he led the receiving corps with 12 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown.

"Obviously, I think they drafted me for a reason," Gibson said. "I think they expect a lot of things out of me. The only thing I can do is practice hard and do what they ask. I'm getting better each and every day...I'm just going to practice hard and do the best that I can, so it gives me the best opportunity to get on the field."

Hopefully, we'll be able to see some of Gibson's developing skills during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, as his terrific work ethic is bound to lead to a good on-the-field performance.
