    No hate at all for the guy. I like him but the preseason hype was pretty big on him, many reports saying he's the guy, new #1, great target for MM8, etc. He looked every bit of the hype in preseason games and was getting majority of the targets but then the real season started. I admit, I was expecting more out of him and he never emerged as the "guy." Rishard did what I thought Taj would become. Rishard established himself as the top WR and was impressive.

    Taj is a young guy and I think will develop but the issue is something he cannot develop and that's pure speed. I am not saying he won't ever be good which he definitely can because of his route running, good hands and work ethic. He won't ever be an AJ Greene but I think if he bulks up he can be a Anquan Boldin type.

    Get out, Boldin?!

    Tajae at best is a Harry Douglas Jr.

    If we look back, rookie Jerry Rice played with a HOF QB who was a few years into the league already throwing for 3500 yards in a season. Even then he still only had 8 more catches and 1 TD his rookie year (quite a few more yards though ~400).

    I'm not on the hype train but I think it's silly to think he had a "bad" year. He's right about where Kenny Britt was before he started getting injured all the time, and people were pretty high on him in the early years.

    I mean Boldin is probably the last guy Id ever think to compare Sharpe to, Boldin would beat a grandmother down for a football, Sharpe not so much.

    Plus Boldin is like 220, Sharpe is barley 190lbs soaking wet after he eats dinner.

    I figured he needs a couple NFL training programs to bulk up. Maybe Boldin is too high of a ceiling, step it down to Doug Baldwin

    Same reason I said it'd happen. This board builds rookies up WAY too much. It becomes trend to praise a guy... which then makes that player unable to live up to the fabricated hype.

    So when they are just a decent player and playing within the realm of their potential- the board turns. Happens every time.

    Basically: Childish fans.

    Love the kid. He's a baller. Just way too over-hyped in the beginning. It puts a lot of pressure on a 5th rd rookie. He's got his head on straight so he'll only get better.
