Default Who's rising?

Megan Manfull on WR Harry Williams (who?)in Weds Chronicle sport page; "The 6'2" 186 lbs is catching almost everything thrown at him. 2nd year out of Tuskegee played for NFL Europa this season". "He really stood out" said Kubiac. "He's stepped up & made some plays. We'll see how he does on S.T. He will get playing time (Saturday) He's got a big body that when in a jump-ball situation, he usually makes the play." Sounds good for red zone plays but AJ & Walters can already fill that need. Probably just a pat on the back for a guy that will not make team.

I dunno...

When I went to last Saturday's practice my friend kept asking me about some reciever from Tuskeegee...Said he saw him do some nice things...I didn't notice the guy and had no clue who he was talking about...

It just now came together....

Has Williams got any practice squad eligibilty left??

He was a guy that I have heard positive noises about through camp but when you look at the depth we have he could the last cut that is made at WR.

Can we hold onto him via practice squad??

Yeah well, wasn't too long ago that the cowpokes didn't think Jimmy Smith was worth a rooster spot. Lance Z has got it all figured out. And I find that particularly good pronostacating, being that is my belief that even the HC doesn't know ...for sure ...at this point who will or will not make the team. I think three thourgh five are still up for grabs. Anyone tells you they know, they're full of rose fertilzer. Now if Lance wants to give me a clue as to where my crazy daddy buried all of that money, I'm all ears.

I don't know. The bigger question on Rick Smith's plate is who do you keep. The potential guys or the producing guys ? I see no irony that the two biggest guys who have the under acheivement banner all over thier respective Texan's carreers finally decided it was time to suddenly turn on the jets. So who do you keep there Kiwi: the guy who's teased you with potential the last two season's or the guy who is catching everything that's been thrown his way in camp ? Or the thritysomething year old who's only going to cotribute for a year or two ? Contenders would do one thing. Loosers do the other.WR cuts are going to tell you alot about where this club is heading.

Oops! BM(Bob McNair for those of you with your mind in the gutter) told me not to broadcast that I was being paid. Sorry BM. Anyway, the wide receiver positions bring lots of questions this season but also offer some interesting answers. Potential vs experience as someone mentioned above. This will be a hard one. Someone like Bethel Johnson or Andre Davis or McCardell could have a very good season. Do you bet on that & then what do you do next season? It is hard to cut a veteran coming off a solid year for a younger player with potential. Do you just lock in on AJ & Walters as your starters for the next 3-4 years and hope the young guys like Jacoby, Mathis, etc make you glad you selected them. It makes it easier if the young guns have a great pre-season. Yet that is not the real McCoy. I am looking forward to this season more than any other except the first one.

If it was my team I would be keeping AJ, Walters, Mathis, McCardell, Davis.

That is assuming we keep 5 WR's on the roster.

Andre, McCardell, Jacoby Jones, Mathis, and Bethel Johnson. I have never really bought into Walter as a great player. I don't like that he's been handed a job.

But you buy into Bethel Johnson being a better player?

I liked Bethel in New England. He can play KR2 if Mathis goes down, has pretty good hands, and has playoff and superbowl experience.

Walter plays on a lot of special team units. All Jones, Mathis, and Bethel do on special teams is return. How many returners do you need? Not to mention that Walter has better size, is a better blocker, and normally has better hands. No, Walter should stay.

I agree. didnt Kubiak say he made a mistake last season by not giving Walter more opportunities ie. more playing time. Walters sticks.

I would showcase Mathis in the preseason & try to get my 3rd pick back in return. Bethel is insurance, doesnt cost much & can't get nothing for him. Jacoby on the otherhand should be the rising star, he just needs time & reps to develop

I don't think Bethel Johnson will make the team provided that Mathis keeps improving as a WR and stays injury free. Walter should definately stay for all the reason Lucky mentioned above, and I think he'll be a good target for Schaub on 3rd down situations.

My five would be AJ, Walter, Jacoby Jones, Mathis, & McCardell. If for some reason we carry 6 WRs then I think Anderson sneaks in there.

I think McCardell should be cut.

AJ, Jacoby, Walter, Mathis, Anderson, Johnson

This would be my six. If they decide to carry 5 I'd drop Anderson.

Walter is the target on 3rd down? Not so sure. How about Daniels or even Breuner? How about Green catching and running for a first? How about AJ's ability to fight for the ball? I really like Walter's size and ability to catch. This is why it is going to be an interesting season.
