So its not an excuse because he said it and it was true. I'm not even mentioning what his doctor said which by the way, he's a doctor... I advise you re-read my statements and tell me when I mentioned Hopkins or even said that I don't want Hopkins... You're arguing with yourself. Fans like you are quick to dismiss key pieces of information just to be "right".
Just so you don't spew crap and try to put things in my mouth. I want Allen, Hopkins, Hunter. Either one of them is fine with me.
Also saying that Hopkins is better only because Most people say Allen had a crap QB is asenine. Allen had Clausen 2.0 throwing him the ball. Guess what? He produced with that crap QB play. Making him more skillful.
You have reading comprehension issues. Where did I say Hopkins is better than Allen? Please point that out to me. I would really like to see where I made such a statement. I've repeatedly said there's no true stud in this draft and that prospects like Allen, Hopkins, Rogers and Bailey are basically cut from the same cloth.
It's not about being 'right', Einstein. Fans like yourself have been blabbing about how special Allen is as a WR but I don't see it. He's on par with Hopkins (good hands, good routes). So I'm asking what the hell makes Allen superior to Hopkins? In my opinion, nothing. They're virtually identical (only Allen is an inch bigger and a tad more athletic).
Again, the QB excuse only goes so far. If Allen has issues getting separation at the next level, then it doesn't matter if Keenan had a crappy QB. Rogers had Bray throwing the ball to him and still led the SEC in receptions and yards.
Dr. Andrews said his knee was 100% healed and at 85% full capacity. He was fine. 85% wouldn't affect his speed that significantly. I don't care beyond that point. Supporters have been making excuses all day. The fact is Allen has always possessed average speed. His strengths have never revolved around speed anyways. Keenan is a Michael Crabtree -- a possession WR who can break tackles at times.
