Philly is a paid professional WR.....and he drops wide open balls. He struggled often making ugly catches last season too.... this is ain't college. NFL players deserve the heat when they earn it. Also, the Gettlemen "knows" talent and is "all knowing" type hype that is building is a tad much. He put Bell and Chandler at tackle last year and was cool with it...dude has his flaws. Not doing something soon at WR IMO will be a mistake. Division is weak enough we should be focused on a playoff run
Brown is a 2nd year undrafted kid whose catches last year looked painful.... and Ron is trying to make him a NFL starter.... just like he he tried to make Bersin a NFL returner. Some things obviously don't work....those seem to be the toughest for Ron
well, I can...Philly basically stole the reps from guys who deserved a chance to get them. Philly is likely the 2nd fasted player on the team. Speed simply means you run fast. Not sure anyone can legitimately state he is a better WR than anyone else trying to make the team. That is why those other guys deserved their reps. But Ron had his mind made long ago outside of likely 2-3 spots who would make this roster and his depth chart.
no one feels bad for Rodgers b/c he still has plenty of actual WRs to throw to. He went from having maybe the best WR corps in the NFL to an above average one. We are trying to make a #1 WR out of what GB still would consider a 3 or 4
Harper. We have the slowest S in the NFL. Kinda wish Brady didn't miss that wide open throw on him where he got burned for a TD. At least Ron would have been forced to at least answer a question or two about his lack of ability to keep up with WRs. We we have enough run support
why would we only be open to a band-aid? We don't have tons of talent. We have a Funchess who we know nothing of really. We have KB who will take a year off with a knee injury....never know, that could derail his career. Maybe a year off of football will be bad news for him in 2017 (he has a history of getting out of shape when he only has an offseason and has played all year.....now he had a full year of not playing). WR is one of the few spots taking on talent and a contract would be reasonable for actual talent IMO
Philly is a great example of Ron's unique/odd stubbornness. He was likely set the moment KB went down that Philly would be the "guy". Then last night he let a garbage WR steal reps from other WRs we should of been looking at. Even last year, it was evident he doesn't catch the ball well at all....yet Ron will convince himself this is a new temporary issue
Ron and company are so desperate right now... heck, how many reps did Philly steal last night from guys like Boykin. Keep in mind guys like Boykin likely are better WRs (groomed in GB) simply he has speed.
except for Harper. That will be a liability all year. Slowest S in the NFL. Watching him flail his body about trying to catch up every getting beat like a drum was a preview of what to expect this year. QBs will attack him all year and force match ups.
we know we can run the ball? We haven't done it all preseason with the 1s. Cam still is Cam. Money for chunks, then the odd ball If Cotchery and Ginn are your 1 and 2 all season it will be a long year (and I like Ginn but he should be a 3-4 at best
