    it is the toughest position for a rookie. its so funny to me, 3 preseason games and already compared to fred gibson.

    Well, Gibson went bye-bye after his fourth pre-season game. No shot of that with big Limas, though. In time, that kid is going to be a good one. Look forward to him contributing to the red zone package right off the bat.

    Perhaps we can let Sweed play out his rookie season before we throw him out with the trash. We have folks overlooking/making excuses for Nate Washington dropping passes for over three years and some want to crucify a rookie.

    Sometimes you guys are unbelieveable.
    1. Charles Harris-OLB, Missouri
    2. Rasul Douglas-CB, West Virginia
    3. Chris Godwin-WR, Penn State
    4. John Johnson-S, Boston College
    5. James Conner-RB, Pitt
    6. Nazair Jones-DT, North Carolina
    7. Garrett Sickels, DE/OLB, Penn State

    I think part of the problem might lie with the QB. As I recall Lefty had problems at Jax with receivers dropping the ball on him. It looks like he throws a 'hard' ball ... much harder than Ben or Batch and it might be a problem with the receivers adjusting to that. He also seems to get rid of the ball much quicker than Ben so it gets on the receivers faster. Not that any of that is an excuse. If you hope to be an NFL receiver you better be able to catch.

    You may be onto something there. Analysts have hypothesized that he does so to offset for the incredibly slow wind up. One thing you have to say about Lefty, he's in the best shape of his entire NFL career, which is a huge plus for us.
