The way he played his rookie season, with crappy QBs, is the reason people got very excited about him. He is big runs a 4.3, has incredible hands, a great vertical, catches the ball in traffic. He was a lot better than LaFell. He also got high praise from Steve Smith. Smith called him the team's best deep ball threat. I think fans just want to see him play and see what he can provide us. I hate to see his skills just rotting away on the sideline and instead we have Armanti Edwards in the game. Just give him a shot and throw the ball to him a few times and let's see what he can do.
No way....LaFell was more well rounded as a rookie. Like in baseball, chicks dig the deep ball. That was all Gettis displayed really. He poorly used his big body as a rookie when given the chance....and isn't as athletic overall as LaFell.
And Gettis didn't do diddly poo with Clausen. He caught one big ball from BSP....that isn't doing lots of work with bad QBs.
