Yep, he's like James Thrash but better at receiver. He can do the returns and everything.. even played some DB

So, assuming that they are going to keep one of the many better vet receivers ahead of him as the third/fourth receiver, and are going to keep Terrence Austin as a 23 year old who can do the same things you have Furrey doing, is it Thomas or Kelly you want cut to open that roster spot?

I mean, aside from cutting more deserving players (and who knows), which "underachiever" are we cutting to make room for the scrawny, overacheiving, 'teams ace?

Your argument that he might make it on merit is admirable, but then, it causes you to identify and cut bait with someone less deserving.

Well, whether we keep six or keep five and go Moss/Kelly/Thomas/Furrey/Austin, Furrey doesn't fit anywhere in either case.

It can be argued that he can add value as a receiver, as well as a special teamer, but unless you can back that statement with a way that he can actually play on this team:

  • RBs Portis/Johnson/Parker/Westbrook?
  • FB Sellers
  • TEs Cooley/Davis
  • WRs Moss/Thomas/Kelly
That's 9-10 guys ahead of our "4th receiver" in the playing time pecking order, or basically, as many guys as who will catch more than 3 passes on the season.

It seems nonsensical to suggest that a guy can contribute as a WR, and then keep a bunch of guys ahead of him that haven't contributed, but even so, are expected to contribute more in the future than said guy. I maintain that unless you think a guy offers more present (and future) value to the offense than either Thomas or Kelly, he doesn't deserve his roster spot.

But if one thinks he can actually beat out someone for a spot on the real gameday offense, that's a much more substantial debate, IMO. Thinking that Furrey is better than Kelly or Thomas (and will be in the future) makes a statement about Furrey as a player. Saying that he could earn a spot on the team, over other more qualified players, without beating anyone out just seems to miss the point of competition.

Re: Sean and Furrey

The short version of the above: a 4th receiver, on this team, is useless. Either we find a 3rd receiver who outplays one of Moss/Kelly/Thomas, or our fourth receiver is really another special teamer: Banks/Armstrong/Hodge, or someone.
