I really wanted Kelly to work out for us. Shame he didn't have the heart.

Hard to trust this when his source is JReid...
Seems like Snyder has always given the "football" people some level of freedom, the thing is VC had his head so far up his a** and wanted to please DS so much that if Danny said he really liked MK I could see that becoming THE OWNER SAID in VCs mind...

Some interesting tweets by J. Reid.

They flew to Kelly's private workout and Snyder fell in love with him.

That's not what they predicted. Coaches were informed that because of knee, Malcolm would have problems practicing. Some MORE

teams assigned Malcolm a medical-reject grade, essentially saying he should not be drafted because of knee concerns. Clear?

Apparently, you're unfamiliar with the way this operation worked. The Haynesworth signing was all the owner as well.
I'm not the biggest J. Reid fan, but I firmly believe that Dan Snyder has been behind a bunch of the bungled trades/contracts and draft picks. Why? Because that's what the average moronic fan would do that had no experience in NFL personnel.

How do you question the guys heart? This isn't Haynesworth. He's not able to play due to injury. Being injury prone doesn't mean you don't have heart.

I echoed that sentiment Kelly's rookie season and mentioned it in an earlier post. His career may have taken a different turn had he not been rushed into playing.

Big difference between hurt and injuries. He didn't play through anything. In my opinion that's no heart.

Did you not read anything above? It's obvious you didn't. You act like he sat himself out because he had a hangnail. Some of you guys are rediculious. In fact, stories are coming out now that he was pressured to play when he probably shouldn't have.

Why don't you give us the medical diagnosis, Dr. Recchi?

Taylor Jacobs' problems started when an opposing player landed on him as a play was ending. Not saying he didn't get hurt, but my god, he hardly saw any playing time when he was here! I mean, what, he played maybe 3-4 downs during his 4 year stint with us? Kelly wasn't a putz that sat out for a hangnail or stubbed toe, but geez, the guy couldn't stay in shape even when he wasn't on the field? When I played in HS I played with twisted ankles, jammed fingers, etc, and I stayed in because I wanted to play. I am sure Malcolm was banged up, but you need to suck it up if you want to make it in the NFL. With some of the above posts, it looks like he shouldn't have been drafted though.

Kelly played all 16 games just two years ago. And probably would have played some games last year if NFL IR rules didn't force him to miss the entire season.

I am referring to Taylor Jacobs as playing only a handful of downs for us. Kelly did show some promise at one point, but can't stay healthy. Maybe the intensity of playing Big 12 football wore him out, but damn, that is awfully young to be injury prone. I hope he actually received a real degree from Oklahoma, because he is going to need it soon.

I read all of the posts, one guy agrees with me and there are some quotes that say we shouldn't have drafted him. I can't speak to if we should have drafted him or not, I was excited about the pick at the time. I can speak to the fact that he hasn't played much and seems to have an attitude that it doesn't matter. It could be a defense mechanism, however it comes across to me as having no heart.

I think he will be ok. Some of his quotes which seem to indicate to some folks that he has no desire actually indicate, from a different point of view, that he is a level-headed, intelligent adult who realizes that he needs a backup plan because he won't play football forever even in the best-case scenario.

If it didn't matter to MK, he wouldn't have been the first one in and last one out day after day during last season even knowing he couldn't suit up. He wouldn't have requested the coaches stay with him for extra film sessions, or worked early mornings and late nights practicing running routes with our veteran receivers giving pointers.
