:fire: I agree. I remembered those two picks like it was yesterday and those two plays still have me steamed. I said his hands are another story and that's something he has to improve immediatly. CC was the man last year and will be for years to come. I expect CC to get a lot of attention from teams this season and it will be McKnight's time to step up to the plate and shine. This is a make or break year for him. If he doesn't step it up this year, then I would expect for him to be released or his contract to be restructured dramatically to relieve some cap room for us.Originally posted by dolfan87
Fiedler to McKnight, bobbled pass, picked off...TD. Fiedler to McKnoght deep in the playoff game, hits James' shoulder pad, picked off.
James, needs to work on his concentration. I agree he has wheels, and can make some decent catches, but that kid had better step up this year, cause CC flat outplayed him last year.
Ward's contract extension was to help create more cap room. It made his cap # smaller for this year. I like Ward, he's a good possesson receiver. I like the fact that he will be around for a few more years.Originally posted by dolphan39
I'm telling you Ward will get more time this year, i.e. contract extension. Ward has been pretty consistent and has not fumbled or bobbled or dropped nearly as many passes.
Don't bust on Gadsden. The guy has the toes of an old man, and still plays his heart out. I have seen him make plays that I could only shake my head and wonder, how the heck did he do that.Originally posted by VanDolPhan
You guys want to point out the 2 times he coughed it up for interceptions but how about the times where he would come up with 30-40 yard grabs because his speed broke him open or the 5-6 times he broke it in the slot only to have Fielder totally miss him.
In a spot he was totally unsuited for he still grabbed 55 passes for 684 yards and a 12.4 yards per avg catch as a slot reciever. This guy even got his face busted up to the point of plastic surgery during this misuse. Did you hear him complain even once about it or the fact that he was being misused?
Sure his hands aren't the greatest but I don't see you guys flipping out on Orende because his speed sucks worse then McKnight's hands.
We have a really good recieving core and you guys should be happy about that. Or need I remind you our WR situation 2 years ago.
