    Re: Troy Williamson's first year

    We all were spoiled with Moss's rookie stats, randy is one of a kind.

    I thought the same thing. TT and Burley aren't much better at that in the air adjustment. M-Rob is probably the best adjustment WR we have. I haven't seen K-Rob on his adjustments. Seems like we have a lot of route runners. That is fine, but we need to use them as such, hit them in stride and let them run.

    I saw Glenn in Dallas play a few times this year and that guy is a Vet. He uses everything on the field to his advantage. He runs a route slow with the DB on his hip and then burst for the ball.

    It can be taught and practiced.

    Judgement reserved.
    I think that sums it up pretty well - our offense has been pretty lackluster all year long - you can't expect a rookie WR to put up amazing stats when the offense isn't doing anything.

    I do see him having trouble adjusting to balls - I hope that is something he learns with practice.

    Agree totally, this has happened on more than one occasion where he is nowhere near the ball and the defender has a better chance to get it. all in good time though and yes, this isn't the same offense we had during randy'd rookie year. i haven't and won't give up on him. we were spoiled by randy moss and we shouldn't be expecting a first rounder to put up numbers like he did, hell has rookie put up numbers like moss his rookie year and kept up the production??? i can't of anyone.

    Why would Burleson be on the practice squad?

    we were all spoiled with moss. it is hard to expect the same of any other receiver, no matter how long they have been in the league. compared to other rookie receivers in both numbers and skills, i think troy is very comparable.

    Re: Troy Williamson's first year

    Troy's doing okay, but I think he's gonna be more of a threat on short crossing routes and slants than on deep passes. He just looks a lot more comfortable running short routes, and should be open on them quite a bit because with his speed, CBs are gonna give him a cushion. I think he could be pretty good after the catch too. On the downside, for a guy who is 6'1 and 1/4, he plays really, really small. He looks more like he's about 5'10 out there. And also, as many people have said, he is AWFUL at adjusting to the deep ball in flight. I really think that'll limit his ability to be a deep threat, but hey, the deep ball is way over-rated anyways.

    I would be fine if we never had a deep ball again. Go to the short game with smash mouth running. We need an every down RB desperately.

    Siaha Burley... I think we cut him with the last cut during preseason.
