Good thing you didn't have anything to do with Barber who took 3 years - Kelly that took 3 years and many others. Why so quick to dismiss?

http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/12199 - Ronde Barber's Statistical Page (Per NFL.com)

http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/12488 - Brian Kelly's Statistical Page (Per NFL.com)

You want to tell me again how long those two took before they were solid pro's on a top 10 Defense?? The answer is NOT 3 years, as Barber took 1 year of awful play to become a full-timer, then another year before he bacame very good. Kelly played right away and had a pretty successfull 2nd season that followed....Clayton is entering his 4th year in this league.

Another thing is that those two guys got BETTER as the years went on, not far worse.

Clayton needs to worry less about his "Physical Style of Play" and actually get some SEPERATION, then once he can do that, catch the ball...once he completes those two tasks he'll be an AVERAGE player in this league again.

they weren't making 1st round $$$$. There was time for them to develop.

Well maybe he should stop sucking. That'd be something to change for sure.

Great answer...  Theres a huge difference on how 1st rounders and all the others are viewed.  Unless your a QB, 1st rounders should be able to hit the ground running and contribute to a team or they are seen as busts.

Kid had a great rookie season, was hurt one year, and had no qb to get him the ball last year.  The jury will make their ruling this year.

Exactly. Two, three years normally is enough time to evaluate, but considering the circumstances here with Michael Clayton, I think it's too early to write him off yet. There's no doubt that he has the talent. I think we should all give him a chance with Garcia (assuming he wins the job) to see if he can get it back together. I'll be with you guys if he stays healthy and still struggles next season.

8 games. I will give Michael Clayton 8 more games before officially stamping him a bust.

Clayton needs to lose weight but still can be physical.

I do belive that Garcia will help him. He just has to consistently catch the ball.

Coulda, shoulda, woulda, might, still, will.  Who cares if he doesn't catch the ball.  It's a very clear thing with WRs.  When you start dropping balls, you are not long for the roster.
