Should be? Not really.

Could be? If he doesn't work himself back near the top of the rotation, possibly.

I'm not sold on Clowney being more than this year's "camp flash" myself, but if the team is, who knows.

We'll know more once we see actual game action.

This is his first day back from about a week and Naane was brought here to make an impact. Coming into the season Gettis was #2 and Lafell #3, seeing Naane came here when Getty and Lafell were hurt, he is inserted as the #2 for the time being. Lafell will have to work to see playing time, no doubt.

Hey Naanee has looked pretty decent against the scrub 2nd and 3rd stringers. Maybe we should let him run a bit with the 1's and see how he does against those guys?

Sounds good but uh, you don't think people are gonna jump to any crazy conclusions like LaFell is going to get cut?

Naaaaaaaaaahhhhhh

Speaking of high draft picks being outplayed by other guys...

Coach Ron Rivera said he views DE Eric Norwood as ahead of DE Everette Brown on the depth chart.

LaFell with Clausen -

24 Years Old

38 catches

468 yards

1 td

Nanee with Rivers -

27 years old

Most catches in a season - 24

most yards in a season - 371

most tds in a season - 2

I like LaFell as a WR more than I like Nanee. He is a good special teams player though.

His SD production is not that relevant. That system does not give value to the #3 receiver because Gates acts as the #1 receiver. The only year Legedu got time as a 1 or 2 was last year... 4 starts in he pulled a hammy and wasn't the same the rest of the season. He had 11 catches in his 4 starts for 177 and 1 TD.

This... you can't compare a guy who is asked to be the #3, #4 option to a guy who had to start mose games due to pure lack of talent on the field.

If you switch there roles we'll be talking about how awesome Legedu was in Carolina last year because he forced into a starting position and racked up yards playing from behind as 1 of the only catching options on the team.

Put LaFell in SD the previous years when they had talent at the position and he would have put up numbers like most #3 and #4 WR's do!

Funny how people are trying to compare a 2nd year wide out that had a rookie QB throwing to him last year v. a back-up WR at San Diego with stats.
