  • What receiver is the best at the spectacular catches?

    Personally, I like Baldwin. I feel like all of our receivers make these catches quite regularly.

  • Tie between Tate and Baldwin, IMO. Percy is absolutely magic after the catch, but I can't recall seeing a whole lot of highlight reel catches by him.

  • Sid has the toe tapping sideline catches down. He does amazing things.

  • I know Rice sometimes makes really, really difficult passes, but time after time it's Baldwin.

  • Pure acrobatics it's Tate.

    Staying inbounds style it's Baldwin or Rice.

    Hasn't Baldwin had just as many, if not more, of those; on top of more critical 3rd down conversions?

  • Probably Doug, we're lucky we have such reliable hands though. Even our TE's. Remember Evan Moore?

    I'd have said Golden last year though. And on this year's form, Doug would have caught that TD in Arizona.

  • Tate's combination of ball skills, high-pointing ability and hand strength is second to none.

    This.... Sidney has had some extremely difficult catches last season especially in the playoffs. He's already had a couple this year as well, however Doug has had the best so far this year. But i voted for Sidney if we're talking pure catching, and not run/moves after catch.

  • I voted for Baldwin even though he bobbles routine passes sometimes. That toe tapper he had against (Carolina?) was the most incredible sideline catch I've ever seen.

    Tate deserves votes as well. The best catch of the season in 2012 might have been the bomb that Tate caught against Miami inside the 5 yard line, where he had to basically crawl over the defender.

    Rice and Miller made fantastic catches look routine.

    Kearse is outstanding at high pointing, attacking the football, and laying out for catches. Even the drop-prone Kearse at UW was known for making incredible catches.

  • Sidney Rice doesn't jump much. Some of his sideline catches would look very different if another receiver was the target - any of our other receivers would simply jump and meet the ball before it's several feet out of bounds horizontally. That's also the play style that makes him easier to get interceptions against.

  • Baldwin makes the ones that just seem improbable. Tate makes the ones that make you step back and go "Did you see that"?

  • Rice gets his when he's practically uncovered; Baldwin gets his when he's got a dude draped all over him and usually on third down.

  • Baldwin & Tate are most clutch, and of recently Baldwin has been making some crazy sideline catches, but I think Rice's catches are the "prettiest".

    At Sark's first open practice in '09 I had the opportunity to stand on the sideline during some WR drills. He can catch those outside/back-shoulder passes as he's falling to the ground pretty constently.

    It's insane how every single one of our receivers has a knack for making amazing catches. Hell, even Sherman had that sideline pick last year in Arizona.

  • Zach Millers TD catch against the cards last Thursday night was pretty damn spectacular, especially for a dude with his body type and size.

  • Of all the crazy difficult catches our receivers make (something they're very good at IMHO), Sidney Rice probably makes more than half of them.

  • Sideline catch? Baldwin.

    Run after catch? Tate (soon to be Harvin.)

    Catch expecting a hit? Miller.

    Catch in traffic? Rice.

  • Baldwin for the "holy crap..how did he even know where to be" type..

    Tate for "holy crap.. he held on??"

    Sidney for "holy crap..havent seen that much toe position awareness and control since a certain guy wore #80"

    Kearse for "holy crap.. what a knack for the dramatic catch!"

    A plethora of riches.. do you remember when you just hoped Derrick Mayes or DJack would actually CATCH the ball? And I liked both..but you held your breath a bit when the ball was heading towards them

  • I think Rice may the best toe-tapper in the NFL. The catch against the Redskins in the playoffs? That was insane. The one-knee catch against SF last Christmas? Unbelievable.

    Doug has had some really great ones this year. Vote goes to Sidney, though.

  • Baldwin always amazes me with his incredible catches when the team needs them the most. However, Rice makes some insane catches an inch from the side line when he doesn't even look at where his feet are.

  • The receiver with the best hands is Sidney Rice. Bar none. As spectacular catches - Tate, Baldwin, and Rice have made their share of them. I remember Tate from GB game last year, Rice's game winning TD against the Pats last year, and then Baldwin's big plays (clutch) this year. One common denominator in all three is the QB throwing those passes - Russell Wilson. As much as it's a spectacular catch, the throw is spectacular too and sometimes its why the catches are spectacular.

  • I went with Baldwin because Baldwin knows toes...but so does Rice.

    Tate had a chance against the Cards and blew it as far as toe tappin the side line on a beautiful pass and catch (can't remember which qtr)

  • My favorite catch of the last couple years was Golden Tate against the Jets last year, where he jumped up and did a 180 in the air to bring down the ball.

    This isn't the best angle of the play but its all I could find. At the 2:01 mark of this video:

  • Baldwin IMO. Tate is definitely the most electric (until Harvin finally hits the field).

  • I think it's fabulous that this is so debatable. Not many teams wonder who their best pass catcher is.

    Harvin, IMO, doesn't deserve to be on this list (as of yet) but what we have in Seattle is a bunch of sure handed receivers that have great field awareness and are willing to sell out to make the catch.

    It's crazy Kearse's name is deservedly mentioned in such a thread. He's come a long way since making life hell for Locker and Price.

    Every time I get irritated with our group's seemingly inability to get separation, I remind myself of how sure handed and blue collar they are as a group. Money aside, we don't have a WR I look forward to parting ways with.

  • I dont know how this is debatable? With all the massive clutch circus third down game winning chains moving catches that Baldwin has made, it just has to be him.
