No no. We're stuck with them now. It's like having TWO of Taylor Jacobs. If I'm wrong, I'll be the happiest man in America, but I'm hardly ever wrong, as you all know.

I'm just gettting a bad feeling about this guy. He only had one good season, the season before that he barely caught any balls, he had no production at all. Now he's all of a sudden thrown into an NFL training camp and he's just not ready for the NFL game. This looks like Taylor Jacobs. I hope like hell I'm wrong.

C'mon now, don't lose faith so quickly. You were pretty high on him back in March/April.

We need Kelly to get on the field. He was going to play more of a role this season. He's going to be opposite of Moss putting El in the slot. We need him to get on the field. Thomas is more of a work in progress and he mainly is going to play as Moss's backup.

No kidding. We had 2 banged up rookies. They are behind. It sucks. Are they busts? Hardly. History dictates anyways that if one of the two are any good then we'll be in good shape. WRs are hit and miss big time.

I don't think its fair to expect that he is going to contribute significantly in his first year. You can't call him a bust when you haven't seen him in a real game situation. Wait it out

I must, once again, defend the distinction between "Devin Thomas was a bad selection" and "Devin Thomas is a bust."

The first statement is something I made less than 5 seconds following his selection. The second is something that I (and skinsfan69 and everyone else who has any patience) would not even consider saying until sometime into the 2009 season.

We'll wait it out as fans, because there's no other real option. But I think there is something to be said when your decision maker chooses the worst prospect out of all the players being considered with his first selection. We'll live, as long as this doesn't become a trend. Bad selections are made all the time in the NFL, and apparently, the Redskins are not above that.

He was a top WR prospect expected to go in the first round, how is that a bad selection?

Not really, I don't have man crushes. Plus we were talking about D. Thomas

Re: Campbell to NFC Beast: Don't sweat the preseason

I think it says a lot that his teammates voted him a captain and he is showing that he is by taking in the young guys. I bet he wishes he had Mix, McMullen or even Matty running routes instead of the rookies, but he is a true leader and won't say it out loud. JC is a smart and very passionate (not rah rah or arrogant) qb who I think will still have an up and down season but more ups than downs.

Re: Campbell to NFC Beast: Don't sweat the preseason

said it a thousand times before, and I'll say it again...PRESEASON MEANS NOTHING! We are about to embark on a brand new season. I'm excited.
