Whatever makes you feel better.

I'll bump this thread after the bum is cut.


Maybe the search button will be fixed 10 years from now. :D

He got his clean slate. He still stinks.


then you have to say goodson and peloha stink too because none of them have played any better yet. they are all at the bottom of the return game.

coincidence? does that seem like the problem might be elsewhere? saaaaay blocking? hmmm.

Goodson also fumbles a lot which is generally bad for a return guy. However he may still be our best return guy.

Pilares is our current return guy, isn't he?

So basically you aren't digging Armanti, huh?

I'm glad somebody is picking up on this.

I tried to be subtle.

He needs one more year to see if he can improve and if not then cut him. As many have said, we tried to take a QB and make not only a WR out of him but a PR, something that usually takes years to learn to do. He dropped punts and gave Fox just what he wanted, a reason to bench him. What did AE do? He worked his butt off in the off season learning to catch punts and to run routes. Problem is, how do you catch a punt? You let it come into your body. How do you catch passes? With your hands. His routes improved because he was open many times in the pre season but he was having problems catching passes. Why? He was letting the ball get to his body, just like he worked on to catch punts. He needs to spend time now learning to catch passes with his hands and to learn to outwork a defender when they both have their hands on the ball. Will he learn to do that during the season? No one knows. He might need another off season to work on his routes and catching passes.

As far as his speed, what most of you don’t seem to get is he is still running like an option QB. At App, even on a called QB draw, he took time to pick his lanes and then started to run. It looks very slow when he does that but I’ve seen him from ground level and he does have speed when he kicks in his other gears. He does have them he just doesn't use them properly. He just has to learn to start running at full speed instead of trying to pick a lane first. Instinct for him is to still run like a QB and not a receiver or returner. He has to get over that or he will never be a proper returner. Give him one more off season and then if he doesn’t we should cut our losses and let him go to the CFL and win a few Grey Cups as a QB.

Doubt Armanti all you want as a WR, but the fact remains that Devin Hester would have the same PR avg if he played on these special teams..

I will bet anyone on here that Edwards will not play next year either. He very well may not get cut cause Hurney hates to admit he screwed up but AE will not improve because he is just not a WR. He was a project that should have been picked up in the 6th not the 3rd.

Its hard to get many yards if there's 4 defenders on you before you can field a punt. I'm not a fan of Armanti Edwards and I think it was a waste of a pick but he has to be given a fair opportunity

BS Like Panthro says

Armanti freezes when he catches the ball. If you watch any games, most of the time he looks like he runs around in circles for 3 seconds and falls down. And he looks spindly.

But keep putting more lipstick on the pig.
