Armanti Edwards

I don't know why this is even being discussed. He won't be on the roster next season. Move on.

You don't? Just take a look. There are a dozen dumber threads here every day.

I'll never understand they blind love for Armanti. Is it because he went to App St? Is it because he was a stud in college? Surely not the latter because so was Eric Shelton and we ragged on him pretty quickly. Is it because he's a Panther? Surely not, because the hate for Clausen is epic... yet most people here gave Jarrett way too many chances.

So what is it? Why do some of you blame everything in the world but Armanti?

What is there to "blame" on Armanti? He didn't choose his draft spot, didn't choose to have his position changed to PR and WR, he's just doing what the coaching staff wants him to do. Would Cam be to blame if we had converted him into a TE and he was mediocre at it?

Two kinds of football fans.

Those who look at what happens, and those who look at the reasons for why things happen.

You've made it pretty clear which category you fall in with your input in this thread, but the other category is the group you are referring to in your post.

That's why I love black/white threads like this. It gives you a chance to see what posters really pay attention, which ones have credibility, whose opinion you can trust going forward.

Perhaps, but then again Steve Smith is probably still the best PR on the team, but he hasn't done it in years.

Starters are almost never return specialists.

You can blame him for not showing enough to get on the field yet as a WR, or make his own path as a returner as the better returners do. How much more time will you give the kid before you finally see he doesn't have "it". Will yo give him all of next year too?

I want to see Armanti succeed, but the Colts have lousy ST, so let's not get carried away just yet... I need to see him do it more then once.

Ok then. Bump this when he puts up good stats as a WR. And if we ever get "good blocking" (Pilares likes our blocking, btw), bump this when he gets multiple nice returns. I'll eat crow.

That won't happen though. So stick to your project excuse, coach excuse, and poor blocking excuse.

Kick return blocking and punt return blocking isn't remotely the same thing.

For one thing you can't try to block a kickoff, it seems like our punt return team try to block the kick every time, never even get close, and leave Edwards with 5 guys unblocked coming right at him.

Armanti WILL be on the team next year, doesnt matter what his play this year was like. His first year was basically a red shirt year. If he doesnt improve in 2012 it will be his last. No way they give up on him after 2 seasons. Not Hurneys MO.

are you really surprised that a 4 year college quarterback is not a starting caliber WR on a TE reliant team? Hell why isn't Jimmy starting WR either? Armanti has been put in a crappy situation (that said, its probably the only situation possible that would give him even a chance to stick in the league). But theres nothing to blame HIM for. Except for being an undersized QB tryna make it in the league. Its not like he doesnt work his ass off

:lol: What a cop out response.

Pilares has had just two decent returns this year, btw, in a completely different element d our special teams.
