Keep drinking the kool-aid buddy.

Plain and simple he will never amount to anything in the NFL.

FO made a mistake. Life goes on.

Next week's Power Ball numbers, please, Nostradamus?

You pick up developmental and project players at the bottom of the draft, or in undrafted free agency.

See.

You don't draft players in the NFL because they are nice guys.

No one on here wants AE to be a bust, I would assume that everyone wants him to be the next SS. What we are pissed about is that we gave up a 2nd rounder for a project/developmental pick, and we are a bad team, in need of some true NFL talent.

Not 100% true, if a guy is an amazing athlete and showed in college that he had the FB IQ to make a switch and perhaps backup at his spot....you take risk in the draft...2,3 and 4th round... the draft itself is a risk for teams.

It's not really were a player should be picked, its does your team want the player, does he fit the team....Is he worth the risk? If so you make the move and draft him....

In the 2010 draft in the 2 and 3rd rounds that I can think of.

Developmental players taken...

Jared Veldheer - Raiders

Jason Worilds - Steelers

Daniel Te'o-Nesheim - Eagles

Moeaki, Tony - Chiefs

Donald Butler - Chargers

Edwards, Armanti - Panthers

And the list could be bigger and if you want to get techincal about it the Giants first rounder JPP, is a developmental player...He played the in Sub division for one and only played there 1 season on defense....Sounds like a pretty big reach....hmmmmm

Garbage. At this pace of development he will not play much at all this year even with the worst/youngest WR corps in the league. Any other team with decent WRS he would likely be released

Nothing wrong with drafting a prospect to develop.

But you don't give up a 2nd round pick. The FO did not intend to have him develop for a year or two.

Just admit he is not what we thought he was.

Actually, I didn't think he would do much this year, specifically early on...If he didn't get the PR downs he wasn't going to play and considering that it was the first time he'd ever done it....

Now get off you high horse and let the player develope like all wr's get to develop. the reason they took him when they did is because other teams were planning on doing the same thing, he had an amazing practice session with teams catching the ball and fielding Punts before the draft....He wasn't going to make it to the 5th round much less the 6th or 7th and theres a good chance he didn't make it out of the late 3rd/early 4th range.

They were talking about it on NFLN during the draft right before carolina moved up to get him and after the pick. That NE was in talks with a few teams to move up for him as well as the team picking behind them....

    • Shula let cam be the offence, put him in places to make the plays
    • I think the problem is that what folks think are easy adjustments to make in game really aren't. For example if Cam is getting pummeled on 5 step drops going to screen passes isn't going to magically change anything. And going to quick timing passes sounds good if you are running a WCO but are not what a Coryell vertical system is built on. If it is a simple adjustment you can pretty much figure the coach who develops a good pregame plan would also actually have planned certain adjustments if the defense changes up based on the likelihood that they have seen other teams make similar adjustments. This is a copy cat league.  The issue is actually more complex and is usually more about constant adjustments from play to play, teams disguising what they do, and players winning individual matchups as they progress through the game. A DE setting up one move for 3 plays by doing something else and then on 3rd down go to that move. Playcalling gets too much credit or blame while execution and physical talent are actually much more important and are often overlooked or minimized.
    • The offensive coached have been working since the end of last season to revamp this offense.  They worked to learn about other systems they could apply and that along with the new toys (and an upgraded Oline) think we will be please with the results. There is also a new consultant in the mix. Willingness to learn and change are very good traits in an NFL coach.  I too think the Shula bashing should stop.  Let's wait and see the results.
