    None of those highlights are really that impressive. Filani's highlights blew those away.

    But I wouldn't mind seeing Ealy given a shot, although I'd rather see Paul Williams first. If Mike Williams needs some time to get in shape, fine. That gives us time to try and work his *** off and to see how committed he is.

    Would Fish have the nuts to pull Moulds for one of the youngsters? I kinda doubt it, but he has been the least impressive WR imo. I thought, or hoped, that he's at least be a sure handed possession receiver. Hasn't even been that.

    I don't disagree with you at all but you can make a case for anyone using specific highlights. It doesn't show if they are capable enough to be consistent.

    Is Ealy on the active roster or PS?

    I'd like to see Ealy get a shot, just based on his production with limited opportunities in preseason... but preseason is another animal. I'd be willing to bet he's got the skills to make an impact, but needs to refine some technique and to learn the system better. So I would be surprised if he just exploded if we stuck him in, but I'd still like to just see. What would it really hurt at this point?

    Or if he was that good and isnt playing, the coaching staff wouldn't be that dumb.....or would they?

    I didnt mean for those videos to be impressive. Just showing the guy in action.
    I think people/coaches put far too much emphasis on route running and learning the playbook. Sure, players need to know blocking assignments, but sometimes, telling a guy to go out and get open and telling your qb to find him is your best bet. Playmakers are playmakers. They don't need dotted lines telling them what to do.

    not really, i think our coaching staff believes in seniority a little too much.
