    And to be fair I didn't even know we called up Darius Jennings to the active roster as WR5 today, so this is in fact a very good and relevant subject to talk about!

    Who the F is Darius Jennings? And how many more catches did he have than McBride in camp?

    Idk who that is

    But it's irrelevant

    We don't need 5 WRs in this offense anyways. No point in wasting time on Mcbride when Davis is week to week.

    That's how they're spinning it

    Not every hammy is a 4 week ordeal

    I think he's likely out 2-3 weeks, but I can't just go with that based on nothing

    McBride somehow chit the bed with Mularkey. He flashed in pre-season and was a decent PS player for us. I think there was some shenanigans with keeping Douglas over McBride and then quickly putting Sharpe and Douglass on IR only to have to go out and sign scrub WR's Paschal only to then cut him and sign Darius Jennings.

    There is something valuable about having familiarity with our system in case depth is needed. With Decker's injury history and Davis with his hammy problems, there is no doubt McBride would be more valuable to us now as depth and/or active 4th WR than Darius Jennings. McBride can take the top off of a D.

    I suspect that they couldn't get McBride to commit to blocking effectively or something as stupid as that he failed to read that motivational book Mularkey put in everybody's locker and couldn't quote it back to Mularkey when he was testing all the players individually.

    IMO- they wanted to "sneak" McBride back on the PS but CHI kicked the tires on him. I personally think he is decent WR depth and would be an upgrade over Darius Jennings. I'd have a conversation with him and if his attitude checked out, I'd use the waiver claim on him. We are going to continue to have WR injury issues.

    This. FO spin team is not going to break the hard news to the fan base about how they spent the #5 pick and have 1 game from him. Hammy's take months to heal from and many require a small surgery if there is a bad tear. And whammy's affect a player mentally as well. Doubt we see anything close to #5 worthy performance out of Davis this year.

    How quickly do people forget the WR situation last year that we still didn't use McBride.

    KW 11 games
    Sharpe and Matthews 16 games
    AJ retired after 8 games
    Douglas 11 games

    Even with that thin of a WR corp for the entire year, Lewan had more WR action than McBride.
    Mariani was the Weems of last year and never saw the field as a WR.
    McBride was lower on the WR totem pole than them in back to back years.

    The reason the #5 WR doesn't matter is because he won't see the field.

    Still have decker, Taylor and Matthews and from what it looks like, both walker and smith can hold down any other WR needs.

    McBride would never see the field just like pascal and Weems don't now.
