In Topic: Number One Receiver vs Two Tight End Sets

13 April 2014 - 10:25 AM

What we need to remember, particularly as a fanbase, is that RARELY does a rookie come in (regardless of where they are selected or how high their expectation) and step in as a #1 receiver...  The absolute worst thing we as a fanbase can do is to set unrealistic expectations on a kid coming in, and pressure him to be Smith's replacement...  It's unlikely to happen in the first year, and if we collectively add unneeded pressure, the results on that kid's psyche could very well be more than he's able to overcome in the long run...  We have to remember to keep our expectations grounded, and give the kid time to grow into the NFL...  Let the kid drop a pass here and there...  Let the kid go 2 or 3 games with no catches while he adjusts...  Just let the kid be a rookie...  And, IMHO, THAT is why we brought in mentors and released Smith (who we know from experience is not a great mentor)...

No tight ends?
 

 

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE double TE sets...  I just think that unless Ebron falls, which ain't happening, we're gonna go into the season with what we have at TE, and could sincerely see us waiting a while to address WR...  Not saying I agree with it (really would just have to wait and see how the pieces fall on draft weekend), but drafting where we do, it's plausible to see us waiting to hit the WR position in the early-middle rounds...

Don't be shocked when (if) the Panthers draft looks like 1-CB, 2-OT, 3-WR, 4-LB, 5-OL, 6-WR, 7-DB

In Topic: DeSean Jackson agrees to terms with Redskins

02 April 2014 - 08:29 AM

Adam Schefter is now tweeting that Jackson, after 8 long hours as a Redskin, is unhappy with his current contract and is demanding to renegotiate...  Jackson intends to hold out of camp if a new agreement is not reached...  The Skins have not ruled out cutting their new receiver, and eating the remaining $16M left from Jackson's signing bonus, which would then leave him free to sign with any team...  Reports are that Philadelphia is interested in bringing him in for a visit if he is cut at the June 1 deadline...

 

Stay tuned...
