Titus Young May Not Be Worthless After All

Through 4 preseason games and one week of the regular season we had seen almost nothing out of the 2nd round draft pick Titus Young. In fact today he had not just his first pro catch, but he had some big ones. Mainly a first down grab that was all him stretching out on a 3rd and 24.

In Detroit's 48-3 pummeling of the Kansas City Chiefs, Young hauled in five passes for 89 yards, including a 43-yard bomb on a 3rd-and-24, despite being blanketed by Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis.

"I leaned in after he made that catch and said, 'That's the catch of the game in my eyes,'" fellow wide receiver Nate Burleson said. "It really opened up the door. We were on the way to making it a convincing game, but that play right there, digging us out of that third-down hole, was huge."

"When that happens, your other guys have to make plays, and Titus did that today," Schwartz said. "Third-down-and-long and (he makes) a huge, huge play going over the middle and out-jumping a defender. That was a big-time play."
