Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

Ok if Kelly and Hankerson developed well they could be a dangerous duo of big bodied receivers. Kelly will only make it if he proves himself in the preseason. I think that is one of the reasons the redskins went after Hankerson to replace Kelly if proves to be a further disappointment.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

I agree with those who feel this year could be the last go round for Kelly if he's unable to stay healthy long enough to display the talent that earned him a 2nd round selection. By him not being released last year, Shanahan demonstrated he's not inclined to easily give up on a young player with talent.

Kelly may have been further along in his development now had they not had him on the 53 man roster his rookie year, giving him the time needed to fully recover from an injury he came to the team with. In the haste for him to play, his career has been set back.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

Malcom Kelly is the Greg Oden of the NFL.



Any sort of injury in training camp and consider his career over. (at least in Washington)

Defenses have been trying to take Tana out of the game plan for years.
Kyle was smart enough to move him around to make it harder for defenses to key in on him and the emergence of AAA helped also.

Moss snaps/targets were about 60% X,Z and 40% slot.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

Skins picked up 3 wr in the draft and one of them will surely make the team. Kelly is in deep shit unless he shows up big. His chance of making the team is 50/50 at best.

With a full year off this year, his body should of had an opportunity to mend. He does possess great hands and the ability to be a big play-maker. However, as we all know, he can't stay on the field...wait get on the field.

Do we think he is an internal solution to our problem or don't even consider it. Trying to be hopeful here as you can tell...
??? With a full year off???

Has he really done anything in the 3 yes he's been in the NFL? His first year he was injured, his second year I think he was injured and didn't see the field until like the last 2 or 3 games and even then I don't think they threw to him, and last year he was injured again.

My expectations are for the team to release him to make room for another vet who can come in along (hopefully) with Moss and the Rookies and turn this team around.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

I would agree with all that this could potentially be his last year with the redskins if he doesn't make the field. However, I am dead set that Shannanhan had to see something in him to place him on IR all year due to a hamstring injury. Let's just hope that this kid pans out to be a solid 2 or 3 receiver. With Moss, Kelly, Armstrong, and Hankerston we could have a decent WR corp...agreed unproven too. This guys have to play to their ability.

Doesn't make sense for Shanny to keep him around for a year on IR just to cut him in camp. I agree he's got plans for him in the rotation.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

^ The problem is no HC has been here long enough to make the decision to cut him.

Prediction: Kelly gets hurt yet again and gets cut.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

Kelly better show up in the best shape of his life. Then he needs to earn a spot on the roster with great play on the field, over and over again. NOt a great series or a great game. He needs to play well from the beginning of camp to the end of preseason.
Then maybe he might make the team.
He has more to prove then any other receiver because he has history in the NFL and it is pretty weak and mostly a failure. He has to prove he belongs. Not just because he is tall. Show some heart. Get his nose bloody and keep on rolling instead of running to the trainer. Toughness.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

I'm just saying my expectations are pretty low considering he has not shown he can stay healthy for even the first game. I'd be happy if he simply stayed healthy but I just don't think he can.

But.....I will say that my expectations are high for any player who's been here 3 seasons and starting their 4 and has yet to develope/ produce anything on the field. Others have been let go who have produced a lot more namely D.Thomas.

If he's not firing on all cylinders from the start through the season then I see him getting let go. And I just don't think he can.

He just lacks the physical ability to beat good corners on the outside. See: Aqib Talib's total domination of him in 2009.

Basically, I think he can replace and improve on 70% of what we would get by retaining Santana Moss. We would lose versatility there: we'd need to have someone else play on the outside, but as I've said before in other threads: if Leonard Hankerson sees a 30% increase in snaps as a rookie because Moss is not back, who could possibly be against such a thing?
FYI...He was doing that against SD's back up players. Whenever he played against the regulars he did nothing.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

There are no expectaions. He's only made it this far cause of his size. If he was 5'9 he would've been long gone. I hope a miracle happens and he proves everyone wrong.... but even when he was on the field healthy, he couldn't get open. Probbaly time to cut the cord.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

Another way to think about this question would be to ask, which of the wr's can contribute on special teams? We've always assumed Kelly wouldn't, so that means he's really got to crack the top 3 to be assured of a spot. If he's healthy I think he makes it, but that's assuming no vets are brought in.

Austin was mentioned earlier, that guy looked good in the giants game last year. He made some catches in traffic. He's gonna make it harder on Kelly. WR will definitely be a position to watch in preseason.

Re: Expectations of Malcom Kelly

I expect nothing out of Malcolm Kelly. Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas were wasted picks. Kelly has had health issues since college and it has not worked out. Lets move on!
