Thank you captain obvious.  I cannot believe at one time people thought he was not the best Steve Smith in the league.  Where is that other guy now?

Loathe the Bucs. Never disliked Ronde. Classy guy who played the game the right way. And after reading this it's obvious he lives by the term "real recognize real."

Ha, I forgot about that.

I really hope Gettleman can find some WR's who overachieve here and do diddly poo elsewhere like in NY.

How is Ronde such a stand up guy but his twin is a POS? Wish we could have had a 10 year DB in our secondary.

How witty with your snide remarks.

 

One of the best CBs in NFL history is retiring and gives respect to Smitty as he does and you all act glib. Sad really.

 

right!

It's remarks like his that give me further hope that when it is time, Steve will get the nod for a bust in Canton.

    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
