Is it just me or does that article read like a 5th grader wrote it?  Not the analysis.  But the grammar and syntax.

 

I thought the same thing. Kinda caught me off guard.

LaFell is one of those receivers that can drop one pass and bring out the cries of, "we need a #2". Then when he continues to make clutch catches somehow he is not mentioned until he drops another one. But he has improved every year and is way above average.

 

Agreed. If he finishes solid we will have a conundrum about whether to try to spend and keep him.

How many drops does he have?

 

Exactly

I was more pissed about Ginn's drop than LaFell's. Ginn just had to watch the ball into his hands but he was already dreaming of the endzone. LaFell had to lay out for a line drive pass and it's harder than it looks to hang onto a ball that hits you in the chest before it rebounds out of your hands (the same thing happened to Smitty against the Rams.)

LaFell's drop vs AZ was atrocious.

Completely agree, but I was talking about the last game. And to be frank, Smitty's was even worse.

oh, what a coincidence. when we win the film and tape on guys like Newton suddenly looks better. I think Cosell; as good as he is, is full of it to a degree.

 

Yeah, cause wasn't Cam doing so much of what he's doing now the last half of 2012 as well (even though the team ultimately had a losing record)??

Smithy is the least sure handed of the three so far this season, right? Or at least has way more drops. He does draw the game planned coverage though.

Remember that preseason game not to long ago when Luke intercepted Flaco and got chased down and tackled.

 

Lol what?  No he didn't... Flacco was the only man in front of him and Luke had the option of trucking him or evading him.  He tried to put a move on him and slipped (or possibly went down intentionally, IDK).  But he didn't get ran down and tackled.

 

I'm sure he figured possibly injuring himself and/or Flacco for a meaningless preseason TD wasn't worth it.

Newton these last three games has been playing the best of his career, so obviously the tape is gonna look better

So you call a slip a tackle nowadays?

It's preseason brah. This is the guy who took a pick 6 back to the house while Kaepernick tried to run him down during that bowl game a couple years back.

 

 

I forgot to use my sarcasm font.
