    Reid can catch

    As I've been saying put the unrealistic returner expectation aside and Reoid can be on heck of a WR.

    Reid>Washington>Baker

    Reid should be on this team. He makes tough catches whenever he get the chance.

    Yeah the fact that we're advocating for Reid to be on the team over Washington and Baker is a huge step...

    I mean Baker cant hold onto the ball for his life and actually looks worse than the TE Sherrod.

    Washington is consistently inconsistent

    And Limas Sweed is behind Washington easily...that should tell you how consistent he's been. But he is tall.

    Props brother O...you certainly called it. It appears he is ready for a break out.

    Willie showed that he deserves a spot on the Steelers roster last night. The guy has alwyas shown good hands when he was on the field as a WR, just don't put him back to return kicks!

    As Floridians we have had a better vantage point on Reid's upside, having watch him in college. I was a big advocate of Reid, even back at the Trib, but truthfully had my doubts... about not his ability but more so the durability factor. He hasn't been healthy enough to actually show what he can do.... until now. The thing that's scary about this situation is that Reid hasn't showcased his biggest asset as WR and PR... his lateral movement in the open field. The guy has some real quickness and can elude tacklers like a beast.

    Hopefully the fact that Drummond was out their for returns late in the game means that we won't waste a roster spot on a marginal return guy who would never contribute as a WR. The depth chart right now looks like:

    1. Santonio H.
    2. Hines W.
    3. Nate W.
    4. Limas S.
    5. Willie R.
    Practice Squad Again: Dallas B.

    IO hope those are the 5. I also think that if Reid gets comfortable and isn't worried about making the roster we may see a little bit better on the return side. IMO--if he is returning punts early next week then he is the guy.

    Call me crazy, but I would rather see Reid back there than Santonio. Both of those guys have a history of dropsies back there on returns, so why do they assume that Santonio's are cured while Reid's are still there? Holmes is too valuable as a WR to put back there in my opinion. I would use Mewelde as my first option as the punt returner, but I would give Reid some reps at PR as the fall-back option in the final pre-season game, since I think we should dump Drummond outright.

    Re: Reid can catch

    Willie Reid is SanAntonio Holmes Jr. Probably wont ever be as good as Santonio, but
    I see a lot of similarities between the two. He's quick and he has some burst. Bye bye
    Baker.

    That would be my prediction and hope as well.
