It seems people on this board tend to turn on a guy pretty quick.

If you remember he dropped a lot of balls his rookie year, and personally I thought he did a terrific job of turning that around last year. With the exception of a game or two he seemed to catch everything and bring a toughness to his game.

Although I do love McCants. He is a beast. You do have to chalk up his superior TD numbers to gim being matched up against scrub CB's and Spurrier devising those plays for him(seems obvious he's always the number 1 guy in the red zone). But as I said, I really love the guy.

If that's the case, since Coles is blanketed on the other side, shouldn't Rod be as open on the other side? He's supposed to be our #2 guy, and he hasn't been playing like it.

I'm thinking that we should all chip in and send Rod a big 'ol tub of Stick-um, aka "The Replacements." Because hitting him in the hands alone isn't working. Lately he couldn't catch vd if he was the only female on an aircraft carrier.

ROTFALMAO you just straight up PIMP SLAPPED rod g.... :lol:
as for rod being open...... he's not, he did better last year as a #1 being doubled..... go figure, when he is open(wide open) he gets so excited that, again, HE DROPS THE ROCK.......i bet if it were a crack rock you'd hold onto it now wouldn't you rod????

No, I think the performance enhancing item he needs is pine-tar.

I don't understand the idea that we are just turning on him. I actually defended him against the McCants fans earlier, but the constant drops, not just once in a while but well over 55% of the balls thrown to him, make me feel that he is not the man to be considered our possession receiver. I don't believe he needs to be the go to guy when Coles is tightly covered, as is obviously the scheme. He is either too tightly wrapped and over concentrating on the catch to the point he is screwing himself up (a la the WR that we let go who went to New Orleans... I can't remember his name - flashes of brilliance) or he is thinking of nothing but the hit coming or the run after he catches the ball.

I think P-Ram is overzinging the balls, but why is it that PJ, DM, LC, and TJ can make the catches that our POSSESSION receiver (definition of the possession WR - the guy who makes the catch to keep possession going - not the speed burner who is the flash in the pan) can't seem to make?

Yep - just saw the pics on the other thread and smacked myself in the forehead - but then again - maybe I was just blocking it out :)

BTW, I saw in the Post today that McCants has a knee injury! Any idea how serious it is?

"Wide receiver Darnerien McCants was on crutches yesterday and underwent an MRI exam on his knee, but Spurrier described the injury as a contusion."
Go Skins! For 10-6 or higher!

a contusion sounds promising that it's nothing serious
