I didn't anoint Thomson on anything, just that he has and can throw into tight windows and haven't seen that in Huntington since Pennington. He also isn't a turnover machine, 11 INTs in 2 years, 5 as a freshman and 6 as a Soph.

Pennington "Heave" a ball. Then you've not watched to much of him. Plus when Moss was way to fast to out run a double or triple team there was no use in heaving the ball, just put it on the money.

Pennington didn't have a gun for an arm like some, but he more than made up for it with precision short passes. Cato was the same way. Cato was the master of putting a pass as the exact point that only his receiver could get to the ball. If he had the WRs that we have now, I can't even imagine.

If Cato was at Marshall now he would be putting up Case Keenum college type numbers, he would probably have close to 20,000 passing yards. Truthfully Cato only had 2 WRs with break away speed. Aaron Dobson his freshman year and DeVonte Allen. He did have Devin "MooMoo" Smith one year. The rest of Cato's WR were just great route runners that could get open, especially Tommy Shuler.

Also Dobson was dealing with a quad strain most of his SR year so it wasn't like Cato was getting a 100% healthy WR with speed that year.
