Now that Moore has returned from his injuries that cost him most of training camp and pre-season he is back to regain his starting position in the line-up. After being drafted in the second round of the 2009 Draft Moore knew it was his position to lose. Decoud was easily awarded the position without any competition. Decoud has been given every opportunity to make a good impression and to hold off the 2nd round Moore but haven't capitalized on his chances. Decoud returns to special teams in which he made a name for hisself while playing for Cal.

ant, this "regaining his starting position" is not working. Moore's a rookie. Decoud is the starter.

Right now Moore is behind Coleman on the depth chart and DeCoud is still the starting FS soooo.....

Besides that, why would we start a rookie this early who, like you said, missed so much time?

After comparing the two Moore & Decoud, Moore is a better play maker. Although Decoud is a ST ace

The stats says it all. Moore is the better defender and Decoud is a special team stud

This right here is why Moore will be the starter in a few weeks over DeCoud.

well seeing him have 2 full practices the past 2 days, i bet ya he wont

heard he didnt do special teams practice...that either means he is starting or he is inactive. Given that he missed A LOT of time...there is no way in **** I see him starting over someone who has been there for everything. He is not a proven vet.

Anybody got any NFL footage of these two making plays? Didn't think so. DeCoud got a pop up pick last year. That about it.

With all the good TEs we face this year both could get lit up. If that happens you could see Williams at safety and Hill at LCB.

i have a feeling hill is gonna be really good, anybody know the length of his contract right now?

If Moore does play he would have a future Hall of Fame TE to learn from in practice. So the statement about him getting lit up is very unlikely. Not to say he would not get beat once in a while.

Wow after looking at them stats I can see why the coaches would be rushing to insert Moore into the line-up and putting Decoud back on special teams. Moore looks like he would make more plays on the ball and Decoud would make our special teams that much more scarier.

Wow, its really funny how a team's fans marginalize a guy just because he wasnt as heralded coming out of college...and yes that is exactly what is going on right now.

Moore wasnt healthy as a senior, and certainly hasnt remained healthy during his short tenure as a Falcon.

DeCoud has been healthy, and has played in every contest this season so far. He looked fine last week, and is contributing.

If Moore cant play in 2/3's of the games this season due to injury, will people call him injury prone like they do Laurent Robinson?

Agreed. I wasn't too impressed with Thomas in the preseason but he did his job well against Miami. Moore has to prove he can stay healthy for 10 minutes before he starts thinking about taking anybody's job.

DeCoud was beating out Moore before Moore got injured. I don't think you'll see Moore start before week 9 or so at least. The first thing he has to do is prove that he can stay healthy for two weeks in a row.

Why so late in the season? By that time the defense should be establish and clicking on all cylinders.

I actually don't think he is going to win the job at all this year. My point in saying at least week 9 is that he is way behind with learning the defenses and getting practice reps.
