Agreed, both accounts.

Go watch some college highlights of the guy. It's laughable. He looks crazy uncoordinated whenever he has to go up for a ball.
He had a 33 inch vertical jump and a 10'6" broad jump...not spectacular but he can get up, certainly enough to dunk the ball or go get a 10 foot high football.

You ever tried just stretching a pulled hamstring???? It flippin' hurts, and I am sure making cuts at full speed and taking hits over the middle would not improve his or the Redskins' stock.

Nope I exercised and or played sports almost everyday from the time I was 10 until I was 28. I have never had a pulled hammy. I've had spraind ankles and knees a torn MCL and a dislocated knee. I have even had quite a few pulled groins but I cannot sympathize with a pulled hammy. The rest of that stuff hurt too and I had to suck it up.

To some extent this injury occurs due to poor flexibilty training and poor warm up practices. To some extent this is a preventable injury, especially if you have a history of this injury, you should be prepared.
Regardless how 'Great his hands are' and all of his other 'awesome' strengths (which I have not seen), if his body fails him this much at his young age, maybe being a professional athlete is not in his future.
It is not in our best interest to have a WR on our roster that has this chronic problem.
To some extent this is lack of preparation.
well we really don't know how kelly prepares for the season. we're not at redskin park everyday. i remember gary clark always had hamstring problems yet he was always there on sunday.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

I watched the game again and I came to realize that both our CBs were abused by Lee Evens but it didn't show cause Anderson sucks. I wish Evens was on our team.

Well we know both Kelly and Thomas both failed their rookie year training camp fitness test. For WR's or any skill position player to fail a fitness test is very unusual and telling.
There is a pattern here o flack preparation and their inability to become starters should not be a huge surprise. It seems at times in the past they were lacking in fight and desire.
They came in thinking they were already stars. Their own web sights, music videos, ego issues.
I have to give Thomas some credit though, during the long punt return for TD by mity mite, Thomas made a key block. He was physical and it was the first time he ever really impressed me.
The TD Thomas had later in the game was against Bills scrubs, I guess all Bills are scrubs to a certain extent, but it was against 2nd or 3rd team dbs.

Devin was having trouble beating third-stringers in training camp.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

No reason at all to give up on Thomas. At least he's on the field and he had that nice TD last week. Kelly on the other hand just needs to get out there.

I think that his performance in that game was overshadowed by the fact that we lost because we didn't have a kicker.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Plus: the skins looked like a professional football tema with seemingly every player playing hard.

Minus: watching rex, i can see where all his ints come from. im not sure how comfortable i am having him be our next in command. i want a back up who can take care of the ball who doesnt have to win the game, he just has to not lose it.

really enjoyed the game.

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

C'mon guys. This was the best game of his career. What about the other 30 some? I like DT and I really like that he plays hard and plays teams. W/out question he's on the roster. But he needs to start being more consistent game in game out. There is no reason that 58 year old Joey Galloway should be ahead of him on the depth chart.
