    1 drop in the Eagles game

    6 drops total in THREE games.

    He might be a TALL target....but the question is, can he actually catch?

    I mean you know its bad when Nate Washington, corporate sponsor is Butterfinger, looks better and more consistent than you......and so does Willie Reid.

    Oh and btw...what happened to Dallas Baker? He forget how to catch too?

    Benny - I agree with what you have to say much of the time but I hope you're wrong here, I'll stick with the idea that the rooks are going to be ok.

    I think we can trace Sweed and Gibson's difference through college (If I'm not mistaken Gibson wanted to play in the NBA?).

    The question wasn't rhetorical Ruthless... I really couldn't remember. Thank you for your constructive input.
    Sometimes, as a defense mechanism, we push memories that are that terrible deep into our subconscious.


    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.

    Isn't WR one of the hardest positions to become accustom to from the College to NFL level? Everyone struggles the first year to two years. Unless your a freak like Randy Moss. Remember Holmes two years ago couldn't beat out Ced. He came on later in the year once he had been in the system for an extended amount of time. This time next year he will be fine.
