why would we pick up this guy and not keep calico or bring back calico, whats the difference?
Because we cut Calico for a reason...
calico had injury problems
Just what we need another WR who drops too many balls...sounds a lot like someone we just lost to FA.
Negatives: Lacks top foot speed, lateral agility and burst to escape the press … Does not have the long acceleration to be considered game-breaking material, as he does not separate quickly … Needs to concentrate on tracking the ball in better (too many drops)
I cant believe how many ppl hate on Grossman, I mean really, thatwas his 1st season ever as a starter, and they went to the SB, you cant even blame the SB loss on him, I mean think about it, the D wasnt great and they would pass on 2nd and 1, think about it, bad play calling
On his season overall, he wasnt that bad, he was inconsistent, yes, but for all the bad games he had, he had a good game too
the D wasnt doing well because every 4 and out they had to get back on the field, grossman doesnt know how to manage a game or even get a first down and let his Defense rest a little.
He has catch problems too. He dropped at least 3 TDs that I can recall.
just doing some reading up on NFL.com on Mr.Gage....I like some things i saw,but then i noticed a huge dropoff when "sexy rexy" became the starting QB...Less catches,TDs,YPC,1st downs,etc....
I like what I saw out of him his rookie through 3rd year i believe.I think he had a 20 yard average his rookie year with about 14 1st downs,and he only had 17 catches but he still managed 350 yards....which he also had 7 catches of 20-40 yard receptions and one that went for more than 40...pulled in 2 TD's that season....and in his 3rd season he was "back at it again" going for 2 td's about 350 yards with 4 recps of 20-40 yrads...
To me this guy has good potential and could really "breakout" and he is very tall and big,but also has good speed...VY will really like throwing to a big WR who actually tries instead of Bennett....
Plus i saw some vids on Gage,and he has good run blocking skills and hangs on to tough balls and has good concentration.....unlike you named it...Mr.Drew Bennett.....I think this is a good signing with alot of potential....more upside than downside...and its not like we hurt ourselves with this signing....I mean he wont break our bank or our team if he doesnt work...and a added plus...he's a good ST player.
