Give the guy a break, guys. Receiver isn't exactly the easiest position to play.


I've got nothing against AE. I think he could be a great NFL player. He just needs to be a throwing, not catching.

My angst is towards our dumb-ass Front Office for spending an expensive draft pick on a player to play a position he didn't play in college, with the expectation he could transition to WR, then give him a nice 4-year contract before he ever took a pro snap (should have been a 3-year tops).

Maybe he'll turn it around by the end of Pre-season. Doesn't look likely though. And if he can't, our Front Office is not only wasting a roster position, but fuging up AE's career too.

If it makes you feel better, we spent a 2nd rounder. We tend to suck with those. Be mad when we burn 1st and 3rds.

I've never seen Zod this distraught over a pre-season showing lol. But, I agree the WR position is a concern.

But, for hope - Look at Julian Edelman. The guy looked incredible last night and made the same transition last year that AE is making now. I remember people saying he looked lost last year and that they were trying to MAKE him into Wes Welker but he just didn't have the ability... Look at him now.

Lets be honest. That was the first preseason game


I have to agree with Woody here. Why would he be on the PS after the first pre-season game?

Lots of people avoiding the question here. Its real simple.

If cuts had to be made today, would AE make the squad if he was an UFA?


By last nights game alone? No, he wouldn't be cut.

However, if he doesn't dazzle everyone by the end of the 4th game, yes. I mostly base this on his decent performance in the punt returning (if he muffed one punt...)

Like I said, after the end of the pre-season if he was an UFA...

draft status is not pro performance. Equating the two is silly.


Splitting hairs, are we?

Huh? AE didn't fumble any punts but I don't consider that "catching on." I am glad he didn't fumble any- I figured he would. He did have one nice return, but in general he struggles with getting up the field. This is the NFL, not that HS-level football he has been playing in recent years.

Still, he might make it as a punt returner once he figures out how to run straight ahead. He is years away from being a contributor as a WR.


So when you say "in general" you mean based on one preseason game, correct? You make quite a few generalizations based on one game, and hence sound a little like a dumbass....

i dont care what you guys say..AE is gonna make the carolina wildcat a threat. We can actually put someone back there that you dont really know what hes gonna do!..i mean if we put stewart back there...duh....if we put smitty back there...well, ok maybe you have to guess, but you'll be able to cover it man to man...with AE back there..you better cover the pass, well. he can throw brother... but dont forget the run game either cuz well burn you.

i mean, really did anyone think that jake delhomme was gonna get passed the ball??? (from the wildcat) thats just a free guy they didnt have to cover...and a stupid play on our part.

ZOD is just stirring the Armanti pot .................to get more site traffic.....its simple.

I'm sure Josh Cribbs just absolutely dominated his first EVER day at WR and returner

So, I guess you decided that your Josh Cribbs point needed it's own thread now? lol

As I said earlier, I think AE is more comparable to Julian Edelman.

That man is impressive.

Can we just draft the next quarterback to come out of Kent State?

The way things look now, If AE was a UFA< would he make even the practice squad?


field goal kicker can't do kickoffs? Nope.


Fair statement and can't argue with it. I understand that AE has made some nice grabs in camp and OTA's but fewer with the pads on. It is tough that they gave up a next's years 2nd rounder for a project. He might come on strong, so far he doesn't come close to what the Patriots got out of Endleman last year.

If anyone got cut based on last nights game, Gross and Beason would be unemployed.

Beason needs to go back to MLB and let Norwood play WLB.

Enough with the 8 years of high school football crap. AE beat down the opponents that were in front of him. Wake won't play App anymore because ASU beats their ass everytime.. ECU beat them last year by 4 without AE even playing. Carolina has been asked to play App for the last 10 years and they decline every offer.(but of course they'll play the Citadel and Bill & Mary).

Would a hs team play Florida this year? Would a hs team open up at Virginia Tech next year? Would a hs team beat #5 Michigan team?
