Yes, and since our ST have been mediocre for so long......................
I'm happy with an average return and.......... possession
PS.........if he ever gets it back together, I would gladly welcome him back. (not a hater)
This is how I feel as well. When he gets back he may just be ready to do the job without the mistakes. He is exciting in both a positive and negative way.
Another Hurney mistake. Sure its only his first season... BUT usually when a team drafts a guy to at least start as a return specialist they usually ending up doing that, and well before transitioning to full time WR or CB or whatever other position he also did in college.
Wasn't a mistake. It was a gamble. So far that gamble has not worked out.
Why did they draft him if they weren't going to play him no matter what? You can fix those mechanical problems like looking the ball in your hands, but as things stand right now, he's wasting away on the bench. What a waste! We could have just drafted Alexander in the fourth with our regular pick, instead of trading away another 3rd for this up coming draft.
I hope the next GM knows not to trade away draft picks.
They drafted him because he is an exciting return man. Something every team, almost, looks for.
He is wasting away because he cannot hang on to the ball. No one to blame but himself. He was worth the gamble as a 4th rounder. We are not paying him much so him not playing is not costing us much.
He was exciting. So the pick was worth a 4th. Alexander has played well, so he would be worth the 3rd. Quit crying over such small details. Every GM tries to hit a homerun in the later rounds. We are not the only team that gambles.
