    People are comparing him to Wes Welker and like Welker didn't get much of a shot at WR but spoke volumes about his return game speed. This is absolutely rubbish. Bloom doesn't have Welker's skill set. Welker is significantly thicker and has proven that he has the hands to help teams out in the receiving end. If by some miracle Bloom emerges as one that can be effective in the slot then why not keep the guy. I don't see this happening. I do however see the viability of keeping six WR this year, if by chance Reid emerges as the main return man. He at least has in game experience as a WR.... he just needs to stay healthy otherwise he'll have no job in the NFL.
    Agree that Bloom can't ever be Welker, but I do think Reid could be a similar type of player.
    Hey! Don't you know that there is a rule that you can never compare a black player to a white player? You have to compare Bloom to Welker and Reid to, say, Az Hakim. Reid cannot be compared directly to Welker. That's the rule...I don't write 'em.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    The only similarity between Bloom and Welker is that they are short white guys.

    Word. Why don't short asian guys get any love in the NFL. Wasn't their a cowgirl LB that was asian. Unless we're doing some martial arts film, my folk just don't get any love from the media.

    He's the only reason that I know that you are supposed to pronounce that name "Win."

    As in: the Cowboys are still looking for their first Playoff Nguyen in over a decade.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Geesh, the one Asian guy that makes it in the league and you can't remember his name. How's he supposed to get love from the media when he can't even get any from his own "folk"?

    Only reason I knew how it was pronounced was due to my love for NL Texas Holdem. Scotty "win" was one of the first poker players I learned to recognize.
