He showed enough to wind up starting. Even though he stank it up, he showed flashes. I think he'll turn out to be a solid backup player and occasional starter due to injury some day. Definitely not a lost cause.

As I said last fall, I don't know if he WILL step up, or not... but I do know that last season was a set-up for him. I think he has the skills to start... but needs proper seasoning. Asking him to step in and start from game one was totally unfair to the kid.

Fortunately, I think he has the mind-set to bounce back, as he demonstrated with his play at the end of the season. With a name like Rambo, dude's gotta be ballin'...

He was a 6th round draft pick. You end up being a 6th round pick because you're either not very talented, or you need to develop. In either case, you shouldn't be a day 1 starter in the NFL. The fact that he was starting day 1 was an indictment on the talent level of our defense, and absolutely should not have been a referendum on him and his future in the NFL.

True, though he dropped purportedly for off field issues, which is probably why he's judged more harshly. Still as you say, he was a sixth round pick. I didn't think he has that bad for a rookie, but he certainly needs to show progress this year.
