I dreamed about this last offseason and it never happen. Maybe it never will.

Most of the Huddle has given up on Gettis. I haven't.

I was really hoping we would see him on the field this year since he suited up... Don't know if he was still injured or if he's in Rivera's doghouse.

If he can come back healthy I really look forward to what he can do next season!

i'm done assuming gettis will ever be anything other than a paper star, and it appears the coaching staff concurs.

Dude maybe I'm just being overly sentimental for something I thought would be a unstoppable combination. But I just wanted to see 1 game where Lafell and Gettis line up on the outside and Steve in the slot. With Olsen at TE and Cam at QB. Just 1 game to see how that would look.

If true then maybe it won't happen but I still wanted to see at least 1 time if that would work.

LaFell's number is 11
Gettis' number is 12

I thought we really had something in Gettis his rookie season. I'm not sure if that torn ACL ruined him or he just got fat and happy cashing NFL checks for nothing. Either way, seems like Gettis is done. I think LaFell can be a decent #2, but we need a successor to Smitty. We most certainly do not have that guy on our roster currently.

Most huddlers laugh at his rookie production. But for a 6th round pick to have those numbers with Jimmy Clausen/Matt Moore/Brian St. Pierre throwing you the ball. I find that down right impressive. That's just me though.

i don't really dream about gettis on the field with cam

dreams are for thinking about things of which the chances of happening in real life are improbable or nearly impossible, like wanting to see calvin johnson on the field with cam

I don't know about that... People thought TD was done and needed to retire and the coaching staff gave him another shot and he made a HUGE impact

Where as on the other hand we had Brandon Hogan who the coaching staff saw no progress and cut him. So I think if they didn't see anything with Gettis they would've done the same

Let's hope he'll be able to impress in training camp.

It makes me sick for you people to sit at home on your couch and have the audacity to question another man's heart. How many training camps did you attend this past season? If you would have been in attendance you would have noticed a young man named David Gettis working out on that sideline everyday with a trainer trying to get back.

time to move on from that dream and start looking at more serious solutions to improving a weak WR unit focused on a middle aged player in the last couple years of his career and whom should be expected to miss time.

Maybe Gettis is done but how would we know? I don't trust Rivera's doghouse judgment yet.

you'd think that more people would be excited about finally having a GM with a great eye for talent and who knows how important it is to build your WR corps.

we don't have to sit around and dream about which long shot late pick WR is going to rise up anymore.

Yeah, that's the word on the street, but I won't actually believe it until I see it. So many years of disappointments...A fan's gotta do something to keep his sanity.

We need #1 and #2 to be sure playmakers. Can someone else step up: great.

I think if Gettis does something at this point it's a good surprise, not something you count on. Like with T Davis this year. Great that it happened but we had guys in place if it didn't. If we take a WR high and then Gettis starts blowing up then that's a good thing. I'm tired of us being like Houston. Since they have Andre Johnson and a strong running game they think that's enough and it's not. We have made that same mistake for almost a decade. Steve, another legit #1 WR, Lafell and BIG IF Gettis. Then when Steve quits you still have 3 quality WR's.. Who knows if he's healthy and producing Gettis might overtake Lafell. Or we cut him in training camp and we still have Steve, high pick, and Lafell. Either way problem is addressed. It's like taking Kuechly even though we all love Beason, it was still the right move. And Gettis is much more of a question mark

every year I have a conversation with my father about how promising the next year looks. Until I see results, the new shiny toy shouldn't get rewarded with praise until he earns it.
