Durham is taller and his 40 was faster
I'm glad we have a lot of bodies at WR that are talented. We have depth.
I definitely wouldn't count WR as a strength though. We're average at best at that position IMO.
Rice-Needs to be healthy
BMW- Fat and gone
Butler- Below Average
Lockette- Talented but unproven.
Baldwin- One good season doesn't mean he'll be good this one too. Although he's smart so I doubt he'll fall off.
Durham- Talented, but unproven
That's a **** load of ???? I think. We need a veteran IMO.
Makes me wonder if the FO didn't think he was going to stay healthy or be able to start and WR is our deepest position.
Weight could be the issue though i did see a video on the Real Rob Report where he didn't look like he was in real good shape but i would like to see something more official before jumping to that conclusion.
I don't know anything about Phill Bates and Tunei. They're undrafted free agents, and I don't think there's even a guarantee they'll make the team. I don't want to grade them before I see them play in the NFL.
Actually, weird that you say consistency is a problem with Tate.
He didn't drop one ball deemed "catchable" the whole entire season in '11. Only WR in the league to do it. It is a smaller sample size (35), but Obomanu had 45 catchable balls and he dropped 8. Devin Hester had LESS (30), and dropped 4.
This wasn’t exactly the biggest surprise in the world as Tate has only dropped one ball (Week 13 versus Carolina in 2010) since entering the league. His perfect Drop Rate score just adds to our feeling (he scored a +5.2 for his receiving) that Tate’s playing time in 2012 needs to replicate the end to his 2011, and not the beginning.
I think Tate is on the brink of a major breakout season.
He's fat, lazy, old, and injured. Pete Carroll got through to him and got him to give a **** for one season. After that, Mike went back to the laziness that has followed him throughout his career. With an injury making staying in shape more difficult, you just knew he wasn't going to put in the extra effort it was going to take. We've got a bunch of guys who don't need to be babied and pushed every step of the way. Mike knew it was coming, he knew he'd gained weight and played poorly last season. In Pete Carroll's locker room either you're in or you're not.
He'll be back, just not at the same salary on his contract. They pulled this for cap insurance, because why? Why the hell not? If you aren't pulling your weight, you don't get to hold any in turn...Survival of the fittest, it's a beautiful universal truth.
Good call, Pete, you crafty bastard!
