I know this is only one game but this isnt very impressive. Jim Wexell was talking about going to the tape and you will see that Poe actually sucks. After watching this I am beginning to think he may be right. Yes he has freakish potential but on the field I see him get handled one on one by running backs, playing too high, his head down too often, a real lack of effort at times, and just a lot of plays that make you say, "what is he doing?" But dont take my word for it. Look for yourself. This is 22 minutes and I could only get through about half of it and was done.
Here are some specifics.
