Actually, WR's "running wide open during practice" scares me. Athough McNabb makes them better -- I just hope that doesn't mean our secondary is sucking it up...

Re: On the radar: Skins WR's

Kelly is a gamer and will excel, it is Thomas I am worried about. It has been a long time since a Spartan has really done well in the NFL. Last one that made any positive impact on his team was Lorenzo White. On top of that, Thomas was expected to be the one to make the big move last season. I know the line sucked and the play calling was suspect, but still you should be able to perform somewhat. I agree with everyone else, this is do or die for those two, but I am more apt to think Kelly is the more likely to succeed.

Thomas had some stellar plays, truly showed elite potential

I'd feel more comfortable betting on Thomas's future here. The reverse in the Giants game was an excellent display of what he can be. Let's hope McCardell coaches him up.

The pads will offer the best test.

Re: On the radar: Skins WR's

If you don't see DT or MK doing really well in camp coming up or even the first or second preseason games I wouldn't consider it an impossibility for Shanny to sign T.O. I mean if you can sign Galloway, come on. Everyone craps on T.O. but he put up almost 1000 receiving yard last year in a not so stellar Buffalo offense. I think if we are looking for another WR he could have an impact. Just depends of if they think his play will out way the possibility for an off the field head case.

Re: On the radar: Skins WR's

So if Patrick Crayton is asking for a release from the Cowboys, anyone think the Skins would be interested in giving him a look if the Cowboys actually cut him?

Re: On the radar: Skins WR's

I believe we should take a look at Crayton.

Don't know if we should sign him though. I think if we have some one go down or not picking up the playbook properly in training camp I think TO could get a look to.

Id pass on Crayton, we already have a bunch of number 3 receivers. We need our own guys to step it up at this point.

Re: On the radar: Skins WR's

I think with McNabb and the Shanahans, we're going to have a much better offense than last year. It's going to be so much better. Think of what McNabb did with the likes of Todd Pinkston, and Reggie Brown as top receivers year to year.
There was a report back in January about Kelly siting down with MS and going over middle of the field routes run by Andre Johnson, and that's how they want to use Kelly. This coaching staff is such an upgrade to last year, and I think it will show this season.
MS knows how to utilize talent and intangibles.

I completely love the optimism..... however......

Just to point out some obvious issue/issues:

1- If Thomas and Kelly were any good they would have shown some sort of spark by now.

2- Kelly is technically only in his 2nd yr since his first was an injury yr.

3- If Thomas and Kelly were the itshay that everyone thinks or hopes they will be why go out and pick up 2 vets, 1 drafted Rookie, and an undrafted free agent?

I too hope the 2 step up big and we all can rest knowing we have 2 excellent WR's, but I'm also the type who likes to prepare. I like to make contingencies in case the two don't. Which means if the 2 don't work out to be decent, the 2 vets suck, and only 1 of the Rookies works out we are still screwed. All we would have is Moss and a Rookie.
