Could Thrash Become #2 WR

Here is a good article which I was going to place in the news section but thought that this could be something that others may want to discuss. The article talks about how Trash has had extra playing time with JC in training camp due to others injuries and the two are really clicking. We never think of him as the #2 guy but if he is really clicking with JC as the article says and the coaches are saying then who knows. I myself have wondered why we do not use him more as it seeems that when he is called upon makes the play. So check out the article and lets hear what you think.
ARTICLE: At 32, Thrash is preparing for another breakout year (The Virginian-Pilot - HamptonRoads.com/PilotOnline.com)

The Va. Pilot is doing a daily player profile and interview which they seem to do a good job. So now that I have found them on line I will post them in the news section unless its something worth discussing.

Randel El looks good, and I'm telling you don't count out B Lloyd

No, because any legitimate #2 or #3 cornerback in this league is going to BLANKET him. Thrash is a great effort player. Solid on special teams and seem to be a "team-first" guy. That said, his talent level is nowhere near what you need to be a legitimate #2.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

Honestly, I'm not concerned who's listed at one, two, three or even four. Just like was mentioned in an article a while ago, the Skins run quite a few three WR sets. Basically as long as receiver ____________ is one, two or three we'll be seeing plenty of them.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

This would be fine by me, Thrash seems to be somewhat of a clutch reciever whenever he gets the ball. Recall the key fourth quarter receptions in last years dallas win and; the previous years dallas (in dallas) and philly (last game of regular season, late first half reception) win.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

Well, to tell u truth.. I wld be glad if he actually make it to #2 position because he is one of few who is true football players who always work hard no matter what.. He deserves it but at same time, there are some praises for RE and Lloyd during the off-season.. So, guess we gotta let it work out by itself..

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

Unless it's due to injury, I don't see Thrash moving up that far on the depth chart.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

great post, I love Thrash but I would guess that the coaches are looking to fit him into more packages, but I would be surprised if he started ahead of ARE.

Last year I remember JC hitting Thrash a couple times in traffic. I think Thrash clearly outplayed Loyd. Loyd can run the fly better than Thrash, but that's about it. Thrash is a great zone reciever too, knows how to find the seems.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

If he's our #2 WR then we are in for a LONG season. He doesn't have the ability to be anything more than a #4 WR at this point in his career. He's got decent speed, decent hands, decent route running but for a #2 all of those things need to be great..I think Llyod still has 3 weeks to prove he's worth of being the #2 or it'll be Randle El.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

To answer your question, only in theory.

If we allow him to be #2, we are in SERIOUS trouble.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

On a side note, I'm giving all the receivers a pass from last year. EVERYONE'S production was down. Brunell basically would force the ball to Moss and Cooley and didn't look anywhere else.

Campbell if anything, likes to spread the ball around and I think that if we have all four receivers on the field at once, we can count on any one of those guys.

I absolutely agree.
Like I've said before, I think we will all be pleasantly surprised with Lloyd's production this year.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

Have to agree with Matty, he isn' going to move up the depth chart at all, with the exception the other guys get serious injuries. Thrash was was at the top of his game his last year with us the first go around and his first season with the Eagles. IF he hasn't cracked a top 3 spot he never will at this point.

Re: Could Thrash Become #2 WR

He should be used more as our posession reciever. He seems to be able to make some great posession catches. We have a need for that in our offense.

If Corey Bradford makes the team he also might be used as such.
