That USC receiver just needs more time. Give him one more season, he'll turn it on any day now...

I'm still iffy on Jarrett.

Smith indicted him for not being a hard worker, and it's been said that he's thrown more parties than he's caught passes. He's definitely got talent, but talent without work ethic isn't enough at the pro level. Plus he killed us with the illegal shift penalties against the Pats.

With that said, he certainly looked like a keeper in the last game when Moore had hit his stride. Delhomme rarely threw to guys he didn't trust, and I think it's safe to say Jarrett wasn't on that list (Smith, Moose, King, Rosario, Williams, maybe Barnidge, but no Jarrett).

Moore has had no such issues, so who knows whether he and Jarrett might have chemistry?

My biggest concern with Jarrett isn't his ability to run routes or catch passes. It's his ability to block in the running game. Moose was/is one of the best blocking WR in the NFL and was a part of the success of the running game. With the way this team is build, that is actually more important than catching the ball.

all these things he can improve.

I think the BIGGEST problem with Jarrett has been maturity (like Fiz). He can be great, and I think now with age he is starting to realize what it will take to reach his full potential in the NFL.

If he bombs this season he will be done, but I think fans will be screaming his name more than they think!

Blaming Jarrett's crappiness on Jake. That's is a riot! Yeah, he sure did kick some ass with Matty as QB. He had what, 2000 yds and 54 TDs when Moore threw him the ball? What were we thinking letting Jarrett and Jake work together. Man!

There's a bunch of negative to look at with the guy but you got to agree he does well when we actually throw him the ball.

I agree, I definitely think Jarrett deserves a shot in 2010. It will be interesting to see if Moore can develop some chemistry with him which in turn would help to open Smitty back up as well.

There's some validity to it (the trust thing) but it's definitely not the whole story.

If he doesn't learn to up his effort it'll never happen.

I just don't get why he's one of the few players people keep giving a break to. We've had countless players who've given it a go and failed here, and the fans have turned on them quickly (hi, Carr!). But Jarrett? "Oh, he'll be good THIS year, just wait.". This is his FOURTH season in the NFL. And the mere fact that some of you think you know more than Fox ("if they'd only throw him the ball, he'd be great, etc), makes it all even worse. Jarrett is inactive a lot for a good reason. Crap, didn't Charlie Martin and Kenny Moore play more than him this year? And of course he can catch a ball, he's in the damn NFL. The sun even shined on Colbert's and Drew Carter's asses from time to time but they were given the boot eventually. We may as well keep him, due to the money factors, but it's time some of you just realize he's a bust. He broke records at USC...well so did Mike Williams and Colbert and where are they now?

I like your positive outlook on things! :thumbsup:

He is a big guy and should start to dominate the WR position. He kind of reminds me of Calvin Johnson, but sure doesn't play like him.

Sometimes it takes a few years for a young WR to come out of his shell, and with the new WR coach, hopefully something different will happen next year. Wishful thinking I guess.
