    the fact that they rate rookies after 5 professional games is asinine imo. It takes more than 5 dam games to really see what a rookie has got. This guy looses credibility here with that fact and with the fact that he hasn't see how justin hunter has played when he is in. I can see rating rookies after 10 games or after the season but not after 5, not enough to judge imo

    These types of things are fun to look at but mean nothing at all.

    Rookies stay rookies in my eyes til around the midseason mark, after that, the ones who still arent contributing can then begin being labeled as something, but even then youre still a good year or two from really knowing if a player can be any good.

    It took both Verner and McCourty 2 good years to figure it out, Ryan Mouton (a higher pick) never figured things out, so its still much too soon to know what Hunter is or isn't. Just how everyone last year call Jake a bust, calling Hunter anything at this stage is premature.

    Hunter helped us win a few football games.

    It's almost midseason. This is week 6 two games away from mid season.

    I wanted him really bad. We could have played him on the outside and moved verner inside. Our Secondary would have been unstoppable.

    Yep... Justin Hunter has fallen short. :rolleyes: Two big time TD catches in limited playing time. Retards. He dropped a couple in the KC game, but both were pretty tough catches to make, and he was either well covered or interfered with on the one that went to the endzone.

    I wanted him in the 3rd... and of course he went one pick before us - not that we would've taken him anyways though.

    Always seems like a player I want gets taken right before we pick (mainly Nicks and Honey Badger). I was torn between Morgan and JPP, so I couldn't really make up my mind with that one. Initially it seemed like JPP was going to be a Hall of Fame caliber player, but he has really fallen off the map and Morgan has gotten a lot better.

    Hmmm. He drops a few catches and we make excuses and says it's ok, but when Britt drops a single pass he gets boo'd. Double standard? I think so!

    You're comparing apples to diesel engines.

    Justin Hunter is a rookie who is still developing where as Britt is a 5th year player who has never lived up to his potential. It's not a double standard to expect more from Britt while being more forgiving with Hunter as they are at completely different stages of their careers.
