Players that are screwed now

Plus his teammates say he's got the fastest wheels on the team. I think we should see what he can do based on his size and speed alone.

They said that about Carter too.

Umm, no offense CRA, but LaFell struggled his rookie year and had a pretty high % of drops.

Didn't say he didn't have his struggles.

He showed a more diverse game than Gettis. Gettis ran the deep vertical better than LaFell and slightly better hands.

The rest? LaFell looked better IMO. That's a lot of different routes, more athletic, better with the ball after the catch, more physical, blocking and used his body better.

Oh, and no offense taken. Board is only interesting when people respectfully disagree on issues we care about

they're all safe.

why change? rome wasn't built in a day, right?

Rome's success wasn't built in a day.

Charlotte's disappointment took only 18 years.

Rivera might have taken a new liking to DWill after that Saints** game performance. it very well might have saved Rivera's job.

Right. Rivera's job was saved by winning meaningless games late in the season after any post-season hopes were crushed.

Why can't DeAngelo Williams keep his job after tearing it up in a meaningless game at the end of the season after any post-season hopes were crushed?

Rivera essentially demoted him 2 consecutive years. He demoted him this year after his first nice showing against the worst D in NFL history

Unfortunately, it really doesn't matter. We are going to have to move one of our RB's, and Stewart's contract makes it pretty much impossible to move him.

I recall a bunch of Huddlers clamoring for Rivera to put Adams back on the field. Rivera should give the guy another chance, how can Rivera keep Adams inactive and activate Edwards, etc. Rivera finally put Adams back on the field and we all know what happened. Maybe, just maybe, the guys that aren't playing, aren't ready to play...

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
