    Does anyone know if this guy has made any progress? Has he been active in any games? I'd sure like to see some production out of this guy. We spent a 3 on him. Let's go dude!!!

    Apparently he was always going to need work, I was prepared to wait a season for Tannehill so I suppose I can wait a few weeks to give Egnew a chance, no point throwing him in before he is ready.

    I wouldn't expect any contribution from him this year. If a 3rd round wasn't spent on him this year he wouldn't be on the team.

    No need to ask about Egnew or Legadu - nothing's happening with either one of these guys.

    I love how his career has been written off after a few seconds of hard knocks.

    I guess you didn't watch the preseason games? When the OC tells him if it were up to him his *** would be cut I would say that is based on a little more than a few seconds. Becasue Miami spent a 3rd rounder on him is the "ONLY" reason he is on the roster.

    If a guy isnt ready to start why would bad preseason performances bother me? He was a third round pick for a reason he has the talent give him time.

    Spoken like a GM that made a piss-poor pick. As a fan, I am much more interested in a player that "EARNED" his way onto the roster and, at a minimum, showed some potential in training camp/preseason.

    wow. not everybody gets off to a hot start. a rookie getting told he would get cut by a coach isn't a rarity, i would read exactly nothing into that other than the kid blew an assignment or three in his first training camp.

    And as a fan I want to see our coaches get the best out of talented players, if that means keeping this guy on the bench for a while then so be it.

    As a 3rd rounder he should be contributing to the team...

    A bad pick.

    the guy we should be talking about to step up in this game is Charles Clay. If I remember right he gave the Jets defense fits last year and could do it again.

    Clay hasn't shown much in the last 2 weeks so he could be due for a breakout game, and we KNOW he has some real skills (unlike Egnew who we know nothing about that's positive)

    You don't draft a TE that high if he's not ready to play.

    All ive heard for the last year is that you shouldn't draft Ryan Tannehill in the round he was taken in either. Didn't stop them.

    Spoken like someone with absolutely no familiarity with the NFL. A 'Fan' with not even a failing grade but an incomplete grade in NFL History. :d-day: :chuckle:

    Do you know who drafted Brett Farve?

    It wasn't the Packers. The reason they have a draft is to add new players and DEVELOPE them. Those stories about Brett and Kurt Warner when they were rookies are hilarious.

    There are PLENTY of probowl players that took more than one or even two years to develope.

    That said, he does seem like a tremendous p*ssy. I would let the coaches do their job though and do everything possible to develope the player. I was really hoping we would finally get someone like Keith jackson again.

    I really hope he pans out. I hate watching all these other teams with their athletic TEs. We need one to help stretch the field .

    :lol: I had to read that twice...you really did compare Egnew with Brett Favre! Thanks for the good laugh. And "yes" I knew exactly who drafted Brett Favre.

    Talk about no familiarity with pro football. There are many, many, many, many, many more players who showed absolutely nothing in their rookie year and NEVER developed to be starters let alone pro bowlers. Why don't you create a list of players who looked as clueless as Egnew that turned out to be pro bowlers? Bet you can't come up with more than a couple, it that.

    Particularly when they show to be as clueless as Egnew looked. Do you seriously think Favre ever displayed the lack of guts that Egnew displayed? Please...

    Egnew has too much talent to be written off so early. The kid will play when he's ready

    I expect him to start getting it, I think he has been a little overwhelmed which happens when you come to the NFL. The defenses in the NFL are a lot better. We do work him in so we have hope. You can't expect all the new players to start playing soon, often coaches will add them in to the team's gameplan as they come along.

    It has been ..uh....two games.

    Give it time guys. Michael Floyd has 0 catches, Justin Blackmon only has 3. Rookies don't all shine from day one, some take time to tell what you have or don't have. The NFL is full of guys who didn't look great as a rookie but got better in time. Wes Welker was picked up by Miami after San Diego cut him.

    A little harsh don't you think. The guy has a head injury because he's too small to begin with and because of that he's a waste of life.

    Agree with this, society is so impatient these days including letting players develop. TE is quite a challenge of a position to learn afaik, lets let the coaches do their thing.

    I like and still like the Engnew pick.

    If he doesn't start making plays next season, I'll start changing my tune, but he has physical gifts that you can't coach into someone. He's worth developing.

    As usual, a player like Egnew becomes a lightning rod for those who feel negative and hopeless about the team in general.

    son, many of us hated the Egnew pick the moment it happened. I wouldn't be so annoyed if it was in the 5th or 6th round. But a 3rd rounder........ we could have grabbed a player who is starting for us right now.

    Jermichael Finley started his career the same way. Inactive at first, with a very small number of catches his first year.

    Anybody professing to know what's going to happen with this guy must have a crystal ball.

    Developmental picks are for late rounders.

    The third round? Not so much.

    You might want to check up on that perception with some objective research.
