He needs to get healthy. The guy can't stay on the field. If he does get healthy Kubes wants him to compete as a WR and not just a KR.

I think he is a real problem, he has so much potential but wont grow up. Its sad really.

It IS very sad, considering the raw talent and potential that he has. But I just might be confusing that with raw speed. Looking back, I'm beginning to think that making the Pro Bowl in his rookie year was the worst thing that could have happened to him. I think it speaks volumes when Kubiak says they are in need of a another receiver to go with AJ, talks about Walter, and never once mention's Mathis' name.

Yeah, IMO, Jerome's a gone gander.

Yet he is the only Texan to get voted an All-Pro.

No Mathis is the only Texan to be named All-Pro. Pro Bowler and All-Pro are different. There is only one All-Pro per position per year.

Like I mentioned earlier, it was probably the worst thing that could have happened to him. In his mind, he doesn't feel like he needs to learn anything.

Add to the above mentioned, he's a pick from the old regime. Something that the new regime seems hell bent on purging.

He is a playmaker and isnt that something Kubiak said we needed? Its true that he has some issues that he needs to get together...but everytime I watched Devin Hester (who is a back up DB on the Bears) highlights last year , I was like that is the same kind of weapon Mathis has been and still could be...He's probably never going to be a #2 receiver but I'm sure he could garner a roster spot as a #4 and being a special team specialist.

I dont understand why everyone thinks he is so immature, not a team player, and all that. I have never heard any of that in the media. Just because he got in a motorcyle accident doesnt make him a bad person.

Played against Mathis in college, so I've pretty much witnessed his ability first hand, in your face action...

Hopefully the new regime hasn't soured on him because it's fairly obvious he adds a lot to the return game and can make game breaking returns...

We would've lost to the Raiders if he didn't return kicks for us that day.

That was a clutch run. I think I recall him making a mistake earlier in that game then stepped up when it mattered most.

Just because he got in a motorcyle accident doesnt make him a bad person.This was covered pretty well in Houston Chronicle. He did get into a fight with another Texan and was late to meetings as I recall. The talk shows talked about his immaturity and ego. My understanding was he thought he had done well in college and did not need anyone to teach him anything.

He should have a shot. That speed is rare. He is cheap, at the very least he can contribute on special teams.

The media doesn't report everything - the Texans have an excellent PR staff.

Sure - if he plays more than half the games in a season.

Devin Hester also plays CB in Nickel Coverage. He's a solid 3rd CB who they hope could develop into a starter down the road.You don't draft just a kick return specialist in the 2nd round.

and wow. With Mike Brown coming back from Injury...that is a stacked Secondary. I wonder what it would take for the Bears to part with Mike....

"At Hampton, speedster Jerome Mathis returned 6 of his 62 career kickoff returns for a touchdown. The 6 scoring returns is an NCAA record."

It would be nice to get this guy back in full form.......:victory:

Hester plays mostly in Dime formations...Ricky Manning comes in first in Nickel situations.
