Re: J. Campbell: The Kid Receivers Are Ready

DT really started to mature at the end of last season. I'm expecting big things from him. As for MK, he just needs to stay healthy. FD needs to learn the playbook.

Would you rather them not be at camp or dropping passes left and right during practice?

every team in the nfl has people on their teams that have great off seasons. i'm glad these guys are learning how to be professionals but i remember hearing the same things about taylor jacobs. he was all world during the off season, couldn't get open to save his life on game day.

Re: J. Campbell: The Kid Receivers Are Ready

I'm glad there are ton of insightful posts like, "Show it on the field."

What would you like us to do? Hide under a rock until the season starts. This is a pretty good article that could spark some discussion instead a lot of people respond with, "screw talk, show up and do it." I'd like to know how that adds to discussion. Saying "bring it on gameday" is a point worth making, but it could have been made once, maybe twice, or maybe you could provide reasoning behind your lack of faith in the players. (because that's clearly what the post indicates)

i'm not trying to come off negative. i'm just tired of all the off season hype talk. especially from the guys that play offense. we hear it every year and when it comes to gameday we struggle to score 14 points. i actually have faith in davis cause i saw him really play well at usc. i think he can be better than cooley if he continues to apply himself. we'll see about the other two.

I tend to agree, the canned responses are a bit mind numbing at times.

Yes, but DT and MK were not even on the field at training camp last year. I understand if they had been in camp last year playing at full speed how this could get tiring, but some of us are glad to see them practicing and learning.

Re: J. Campbell: The Kid Receivers Are Ready

I agree that what DT and FD do in practice is largely meaningless, but considering Kelly's issues with health, if he gets it going in camp, nothings going to stop him come the season.

i hope you're right. but i'm not expecting much from him this year. he really hasn't been on the playing field since his senior year at oklahoma. big step up from big 12 defenses to nfl/nfc east defenses.

I don't put it all on them. The staff has to prove they can coach players up and get them on the field. Some teams seem to have a knack for doing so (see Desean Jackson last year). Only 1 out of 10 draft picks produced (Chris Horton), and he wouldn't have seen the field either if it weren't for an injury to Doughty. I can't blame it all on the players until the Zorn regime proves they can develop players. That said, I don't blame the coaching staff entirely either. It lies somewhere in the middle.

I believe we'll see good things from Kelly, Thomas AND Kelly. Player development will come around as well (Orakpo will have a good rookie campaign).

Re: J. Campbell: The Kid Receivers Are Ready

The first reports out of training camp include references to several big plays by Devin Thomas. Granted, it is just the start of camp, but as far as he can "show it in the field" in 2009, it seems he has. Keep it up, Devin! I have dreams of your dancing in the end zone in Cowboys Stadium!
