    Re: Rookie receiver winning big fans

    McMullen is going to be the # 5 WR so I do not care if he busts out or not the WR's we need to have bust out years are K-Rob and T-Will.

    My point is that Baskett was not impressive enough for 32 teams to draft him over 7 rounds of the draft, so I am not going to worry because we traded him. There were 255 players chosen in the draft, and 33 were WR's and he was not one of them.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    That's a fine point. My point is I think we traded some talent away for some trash. I'm not proclaiming he will be the cats ass. All I was saying is we may be regretting this in the future.

    I think Baskett is going to shine in Philly.

    That's what I was thinking also BUT I was hoping we got the better end of the deal (of course). You know the old saying however "garbage in.... garbage out!"

    Re: Rookie receiver winning big fans

    I think some people are undervaluing McMullen's true asset...experience. Though he certainly doesn't appear to be the most talented reciever AND the case may be made that Baskett had more talent than he, coaching isn't about just having the most talent on the field. I think we know as fans that we've had A LOT of talent on the field and underachieved for a very long time. Therefore, IF getting this guy helps our top four recievers pick up the system faster (because peer-led learning is often easier than superior-led learning) then I think it was an outstanding leadership decision. Either way, it is way too early to start throwing anyone under the bus.

    most fans go by the saying "management is guilty until proven innocent"

    people, remember back when everyone was pissed we didnt take mike williams?

    yeah. last i heard he was fined 400000 bucks last year for not showing up on time and being overweight. and he might not even make the lions team.

    So we got McMullen to be a mentor? I don't buy it.

    1. MRob, KRob, and Taylor have more experience than him.
    2. We had underacheiving talent on the field because our coaches sucked, not because we had a lack of mentors.
    3. Good mentors are players who have had success in a long career and are ready to step out of the limelight. Cris Carter and Jerry Rice accepted mentoring roles. A player like McMullen has something to prove and wants to compete. He is not going to advise or lead, unless its by example, which he has never done in the past.
    4. Receiver is a position where someone with talent can make an immediate impact. Moss and TO both did that. Childress jumped all over the raw talent of Tarvaris, why not at least give Baskett a chance?

    Re: Rookie receiver winning big fans

    Good points V-Unit. All I'm saying is that McMullen has experience specific to the system that they are trying to implement here. I can imagine that having someone who can run a route when it is called without needing an explination (for demonstration purposes or whatever) can be a very useful pedagogical tool and even more effective when coming from a peer rather than a superior.

    Unless we were in every OTA, mini-camp and practice we would have no idea what McMullen's impact is on this team and I think it's a bit harsh to start criticizing the move already. Baskett may be a marginal special teamer (though certainly I think he will be more than that) and our reciving core could become one of the leagues most spectacular and Childress is going to look like a genius.

    Knowing the system is one thing, being able to play your position well in it, is another thing.
