Has a coach ever been quoted as saying "yeah he's garbage" in one of these fluff pieces?
OK why would Proehl be different?

AE is pretty damn quick. He doesn't have elite speed but he isn't the slow bum everyone on the forum tries to make him out to be. I think he has legit NFL talent he just lacks tenacity and confidence and the reps to build on that vice versa.
It was mentioned here a while back by a fellow huddler that AE ability as a threat was reduced when he came to the NFL. Not because he changed but because the competition got better. I would also agree with that and with that I don't think AE would ever be a dangerous QB in the NFL. WR is actually a good position for him to learn because he has the quickness to be good at it. He is also intelligent and if he can become the craftsmen that a WR needs to be then he just may turn out okay.
Steve Smith once had 4.3 speed but it was never his speed that made him the best. Not saying AE is Smith at all but I get tired of the notion that speed makes a player. Joe Adams is fuggin fast and his agility is legit nasty. But the arm chair WR's on the huddle like to believe they can outrun these guys just because they see a punter have a good angle on a guy.
Though I say without any professional scouting or coaching experience like everyone else on the huddle. lol

If he makes it, it will be because he beat Gettis out. I think Gettis is as fast and as scary. Gettis is 6'2"? or 3"
What would be cool is to keep AE and only keep 2 QBs. Place the rookie on the P.S. squad, say goodbye to Clausen and then AE could be emergency QB in case Cam and Anderson gets hurt in the same game.

He was a QB converted to WR... you HAVE to give him 3 years to prove himself.
Who knows!? But I would love to see him come around and produce for us next season..
GO Armanti Go

Didn't take randle el 3 years, because he was actually nfl caliber talent

No, Joe Adams should make the team over AE.

he's certainly done well enough when he actually got on the field, particularly last year. He blocked well, caught passes that were thrown to him. When they've asked him to throw he's done it. He just hasn't gotten a lot of run. And it doesn't make sense since he clearly dominates in practice.
Joe Adams sucks in practice AND on the field.

Randel El also played WR and returned punts in college. So he had more experience than AE. Also, Randel El wasn't really your typical QB. He ran a version of the read option-wildcat, and threw very few passes.
