That's what preseason and TC are for! I know he wasnt used to running cuz he was a qb, but you are still are a professional athlete; their just isnt an excuse. Well hopefully he does better with this chance.

I still don't get this "no legs" thing... I can understand not being in "running" shape, but how do your legs leave you?

i'd love to see a handful of grabs for 50ish yards and a TD just to shut up all the idiots who never even gave him a chance

It's a Hurney-speak for him saying: "He doesn't look like he can play the position we drafted him for, but rather than having egg on our face, we're going to say he doesn't have his legs under him yet."

I took "he doesn't have his legs" to mean, "he has no idea how to run routes".

i think it means he hasn't played WR since high school so he was getting winded early and often so he wasn't as fast and explosive as he was in college. dude was learning a new position. christ.
