Twitter reactions to Steelers signing Lance Moore Friday

There's a nostalgic sentiment coming out of New Orleans for the loss of a truly loved player. The Steelers aren't gaining Jerry Rice, but he could be an effective player.

One thing Moore has is production. One thing that needs to come with that is the jacked offense the team has had throughout his career. Which is it, the loaded receivers corps the team has had in his tenure there, the Hall of Fame quarterback or the aggressive vertical offense?

Then we simply need to remember they signed a slot receiver, not Jerry Rice. He's not being brought in with the expectations he'll break records.

Or, something like this.

To whatever extent Cotchery will be deemed in priority (rarely, if ever, as the primary target on a play), the production Moore will get, much like in New Orleans, will be the product of those around him. And that's not an insult. The Steelers have an excellent primary target in Antonio Brown, and with solid intermediate-to-short-range options in Le'Veon Bell and Heath Miller, Moore can benefit by working within the system.

Then, of course, there's always This Guy.

Saints fans generally wish him well, very similarly to how Steelers fans wished Jerricho Cotchery the best.

Fans love the slot receiver. They love the Little Guy Who Could. It was true in Pittsburgh with Cotchery (in New York, too) and it will be true in Carolina. It was true in New Orleans. Apparently, Moore was the over-exuberant first-down pointer.

If nothing else, Moore knows how to say the right things.
