    I guess you still haven't watched a single piece of film on him yet, have you? He was regarded as a speedy receiver before his combine 40 time, and improved his time afterwards at his pro day. That bad 40 time at the combine is the only reason he dropped to us. Calling him slow is just ignorant.

    Oh and it's "to" not "too". ;)

    We signed Amano before the 2011 season in a 5 year $26M deal.

    Myers signed a 4 year $25M deal with with the Texans.

    The guaranteed money is not that different.

    We should have dumped Amano and signed Myers.

    Now we take a significant cap hit for Amano and he won't even play.

    I feel sorry for Amano, but atleast we'll finally have a change at center. Maybe now we realize we shouldn't of lowballed Scott Wells.

    KW knew for months he would be running the 40 that day. His lack of professionalism is what caused him too fall too the Titans. No matter the reason the 4.7 is fact, the height & height:weight is fact.

    So, one bad 40 time and now he's slow. Makes complete sense. Just because you didn't like the pick doesn't make him slow and fat. Quit whining and just open your eyes and ears. Watch film and listen to what our coaches are saying about him. What you are saying is completely ignorant. You'll be singing a different tune after our preseason games.

    Coaches raved about EA too.

    quite drinking the koolaide. Titans reached for a short, fat and slow WR - but at least he was from the SWC so its all good

    Now I know you're just screwing with me. But, for real, just watch game film on the guy if you haven't already. It's not hard to see that he is very talented. If you don't see it, that's fine. Not everyone has a good eye for talent.

    I'm very happy Kendall had a bad 40 time, otherwise he's gone before 20. On film he looks like he runs 4.3's so I'm happy with him.
