    I really don't doubt that Reid will suprise in camp. Actually, hasn't he had a few very good camps?... It's the whole injury thing with me. Man, if I didn't know better, I'd think he went to the Duce Staley school of regular season participation practices.
    Think about it. We got rid of Vrabel and kept Haggens. What a great deal that was.
    Now that's not fair to compare Vrabel and Haggens being that Clark didn't have
    any "extra help" that Vrabel probably benefited from in New England.

    Didn't Carlos Emmons start over Vrabel, not Haggans???

    I'll take your word for it, but the point is that if Haggans was in New England he'd
    be a pro bowler if given the same video advantages as Vrabel.

    ..."Take one".......Yea, you're probably right.

    ..."Take two"......I'd probably be just as upset.
    ...(get the "take" theme?.... Film... Cameras....Awww.... Forget it...)

    Re: Reid, Baker Battling For One Spot.

    the fifth WR will likely be active on game days as ariens will want to run five receiver sets. in these sets that fifth wide receiver will likely be a slot guy and be expected to contribute on special teams. While reid may not be ideal, neither of these roles suits Baker very well at all.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    I'd take Reid as a slot receiver because of his ability as a former RB to get yards after the catch. Baker is a lot like Washington as far as getting dropped quickly after the catch--except Baker can consistently catch the ball.
