Gonzo is WR #3 and I don't think has a shot. As for Ginn, I think he's going to start slow, but maybe by the end of the year if he plays enough?

Same with Calvin J. Though he better start and getting plenty of catches, I have him in FF.

If Jacoby continues as he has played, I think he actually has a shot.
I thought the Rams signed Pittman off of waivers. I know the Bengals were trying to get him but St. Louis had priority.

Yeah.

And then we can all scream... "He is who we thought he was. HE IS WHO WE THOUGHT HE WAS!" in our best Dennis Green impersonations.

It will probable be another over rated QB that can't hit his WRs or throw more TDs than INTs, but can run.

I dont care if he is OROY or not...I just want him to be able to create some mis-matches for AJ. Something Moulds could not do.

A dark horse might be RB Brandon Jackson for GB with the injuries they have at RB he is going to be forced into acton early and often.

Jacoby would be a surprise, point blank but I care more about his long term prospects & bringing him along in a way that doesnt stunt his developement. I pray Jacoby keeps his work ethic & continues to strive, improving his craft & not getting too many pre-mature acolades.

that being said Greg Olsen has impressed the hell out of me so far, the speed of the NFL has not been a problem it looks like hes been playing in the league for years already. I would expect him to have a big season for da bears

I agree whole heartedly. Jacoby has certainly looked like he has been a diamond in the rough. If we establish our running game and develope Jacoby into a hands down #2 receiver, we could go into 08 knowing we could possibly have one of the best 1 and 2 combinations in the league. His route running will tell the story. We know he has quick feet, an excellent burst, and good hands. If he can run routes then he will definately be a 3rd round phenom. Lets just hope he isn't just another punt return specialist, we have enough one trick ponies.

That's right NO. Pittman was claimed off of waivers by St. Louis and signed to their active 53 man roster.

Cinci may well have wanted him and hinted at such leading up to cut day. We held a couple of joint practices with the Bengals in preseason and we all pretty much figured they would go after whichever running back we cut since we're deep there and they're pretty thin after losing Irons. They ended up signing fifth round draft pick CB David Jones off of waivers after we undoubtedly tried to sneak him onto the practice squad. That dissapointed me moreso than Pittman.

Cool, thanks. I know Cincy definitely put in a claim for him put lost out because of the priority issue. Anyway, good luck tonight--it should be a great game. Thank goodness football season has returned.

Normally I would agree, but people all over the country are saying the same thing about us right now. They could pull off a decent team this year. Definitely not the Texans though!

JJ......he'll shine, but not that bright. We would have to have a 10-6 season at the least for him to get this, and he would need to be responsible for at least 3 wins. Then they would say something like "JJ pulled the Texans over the 8-8 mark for the first time ever"...you know how they are about Houston.

Jones has a realistic shot, in my opinion. If he does well as a reciever, I am thinking 800 yards and 5 TD's, and adds 3 or 4 more TD's off of returns, maybe 1 on a reverse, he could win it.

Heh, pretty much. I doubt he sees the field at all this year, mostly inactive. I don't think Pittman is a bad back, but I don't think he has the body for the type of running style he uses (about the same size, weight as Reggie). He runs like a power back - very upright - but doesn't get a lot of push and tends to go down on first contact. He has ok speed but didn't show much shake and didn't hit the hole very hard as well as having an absolutely horrid time adjusting to the blitz pickups nearly getting one of our backup QBs killed. He also didn't play (or at least play well) on special teams, so that didn't do him any favors.

UFA Pierre Thomas from Illinois clearly outplayed Pittman in pretty much every facet of the game in preseason and forced our hand into keeping him, which is a good thing.

Enjoy that extra draft pick we gave up to get Pittman in the fourth though. Oh well, at least it shows we aren't afraid to cut ties with an underperformer just because of draft status. That's for sure something Haslett was known for.
