I agree about the best player, which is why I said that if he makes the team it's because he's the best player in the eyes of the coaching staff. Unfortunately, the fact of the matter is, as you and I both know, if he does make the team there will be tons of people on this board who will never accept that as a fact due to a previously adopted bias that they've created for themselves.

i don't think people have it out the way that AE fans think they do. all the supposed haters see is a guy who was drafted (trading up for the guy) and kept a spot because the big dog (as in jerry richardson) wanted him there.

most just see him as a guy who has done nothing. then there are the AE fans who just think he deserves to be on the team because of what he did at App St.

i think he's got potential. so did dwayne jarrett. i'm just tired of waiting to see it realized. i don't want him to have a roster spot because of someone up top being a fan of his. if he's going to have a roster spot i want it to be because he earned it. most of us just doubt that he can based on what we have seen, not on what we have hoped. right now he sounds like the TC super stars of old like jason carter and taye biddle biddle.

the only real bias that appears to exist with AE is from those who are on his bandwagon. the haters that he may have had coming into the league have only seen from him what they expected all along...that he's overrated and he has done nothing to prove that he isn't.

if he can prove to be anything close to respectable then you will see those "haters" quit hating. the best way for people top quit doubting is for him to give a reason for it, and just making the team doesn't qualify.

I'm going to stop shitting up the twitter thread with AE argument though. I just wanted to point out that the butthurt will be strong when he makes the team, and based on the anti AE brigade coming out in force, this observation is right on point.

Ive never understood so called fans hoping some of our guys dont do well. Personally Id like the coaches to have to agonize over picking 53 guys to make the team out of 90 training camp bodies cause theyre all poo hot at their positions.

Please explain to me how AE will make the roster. With a healthy Gettis the WR corps will be Smith, LaFell, Gettis, Murphy, Adams, and Pilares. Even without Gettis, Tutu has been taking top 3-4 WR snaps and also plays special teams. When you get past the 4th WR spot, the number 5 and 6 guys have to do something on special teams. How is AE going to contribute if he is the 6th guy but isn't going to be returning anything since Pilares and Adams have those jobs locked up?

Will you idiots stop filling up the damn twitter threads with your petty arguments? Some of us are trying to stay up to date on the practices.

Jonathan Jones@jjones9

Andre Neblett blows up an attempted Stewart rush in the backfield. Neblett was just taking a breather under the tent

Just great, and Neblett just HAS to be suspended the first four games. Maybe he can take a lawsuit out on Goodell so he can get scared and cut him a deal.

I am a huge Armanti fan .. but sorry Armanti is not making this team. He does not play ST except returning punts, If Adams handles his business they dont need Armanti, who has shown he can only average 5.5 yd per return and a season long of 17 yds.

Smith -- starter

Lafell -- starter

Murphy -- with his intangibles he will be given a spot and a chance.

Gettis -- has showed he can play in the league with a terrible QB .. if healthy he is on the team.

Pilares -- Kick returner ... returned for TD on a terrible ST last year

Adams -- punt return skill and was drafted to upgrade the returns

so how does Armanti fit in, if everyone is healthy?

Apparently I was beat to the punch with my arguement.

Even Munnerlyn had a 10 yard average on punt returns when he did them. So even if Adams gets hurt, AE still isn't even the best choice.

again, i don't think people are hoping for him to fail people already consider him to have failed and are ready for the team to move on just in the same way that most of us did with jarrett and other guys like eric shelton.

or send him thousands of packs of gum in the mail, since that seems to be an effective tactic

right Saints* fans?

Armanti - wide receiver and 3rd qb after JC gets traded next year

Sherod martin makes a nice pick on deep ball. He's battling for that starting FS spot with Haruki Nakamura.
