When will the rookie WR's make an impact?

Just a question...anybody hear if kelly was supposed to play? Are we prepping Thomas for punt returns? Any info at all on these two "prize" aquisitions

Re: When will the rookie WR's make an impact?

They're not going to be making many contributions in the near future. Kelly is still hampered by an injury and is, at best, our #4 WR. Thomas is very raw and, when Kelly is healthy, probably our #5 WR. Davis is the #3 TE and I don't see him producing a lot, especially since #2 TE Yoder has yet to make significant contributions. All three picks seem promising, but they are not going to produce the stats in 2008 that people thought they would (barring injury to the super-productive duo of Moss and Cooley).

They all look promising, and it is a BLESSING to not have to play, and put our francise on them until ready.
Nice to Yoder get some action

I think if they are in the game and getting a lot of balls, then that is bad news for us. Meaning Moss and ARE are either hurt or playing bad.

Sure they will get more at them towards the end of the season, but to me it's a non-issue. As long as we are winning, and our starters are not getting shutdown, no need to put rookies in an extremely tough situation. Best to let them get a few plays, and learn.

i still think it would be nice to have the ability to run a 5 wr set if needed and have the flexibility. I love our WRs..moss are and thrash are all awesome...but i would love to see the new guys size become a factor in the red zone

I'm not sure where Kelly would be on the depth chart if he were healthy. Not to get too technical, but I said he is "at best" the #4 WR and he would probably beat Thomas for that spot. I say that simply because Kelly is much better at running routes than Thomas. Supposedly, Thomas is developing nicely as a deep threat, but you don't go deep a dozen times per game in the WCO and even if you do, Moss is going to get 90% of those receptions.

Re: When will the rookie WR's make an impact?

I think it's also a good thing to not have to relay on them bringing anythign this first year. And if we continue to have secuss its just gonna make them want to work harder and really take some equity in our team.

One thing I like about Thomas is that when he is on the field (kickoff coverage) he is looking like he is having some real fun. He has definitly been humbled a little bit and I think now he really wants it and wants to prove himself.

Re: When will the rookie WR's make an impact?

My prediction is this weekend. The Eagles will try to contain our primary receivers, which will open the door for Zorn to throw them a curve ball with eiither or both of our rookie WR's.

Give them some time. There's no big rush considering the way Moss and ARE are playing.

Moss, ARE, Cooley, Thrash, and Portis are all going to have more receptions than Thomas. So I'd be surprised if Thomas had 300 yards this season, unless someone is injured or JC throws for 6,000 yards.

Re: When will the rookie WR's make an impact?

Does anyone know whether Kelly practiced yesterday? That would be a big first step to getting back on the field. Let's also not forget about Fred Davis. I'd love to see him in with Cooley at the same time - then you cannot double Cooley underneath. This offense could get downright scary when we get all of the young weapons healthy and up to speed.

The kid from Philly, Jackson, is a play maker. Where was he on the draft board? Why didn't the Skins consider him rather than the two pokes we got?
