What's worrying about this?  I fail to see it.

You mean he's not a Hall of Famer right out of the box?  Shocking...

Fluff to fill space.

That could be said about almost any player drafted high on the totem pole.

Saw similar article on Thomas of the Browns.

They should cut him now and make room on the roster for a player with some talent at the position.

It is called a progress report update. I think they do this bit on every rookie (or at least every first rounder) in every town. The problem isn't that they are doing it, it is that people don't like what they are saying.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Reading and listening to the local media talk about the bucs is almost as bad as listening to Nancy Grace talk about professional wrestling and steroids (or anything else).  

Histrionics, melodrama and misinformation.

Gaines Adams has been compared to Leonard Little. Leaving the DUI killing aside, you can use that comparison however you like.

I don't get it.  What's there that people "don't like"?  It's about what's to be expected.  If someone "doesn't like" what they're saying I'd think it has more to do with the listener than what's being said...

The problem is this discussion has been done over so many times, so recently, that it doesn't do much more than state the obvious. Not to mention this is basically a carbon copy of the thread warren made only 5 days ago: http://www.pewterreport.com/forum/index.php?topic=11898.0

Shouldn't this go in the Deja Vu thread?

Actually this time last year, people were praising Grads for learning the offense so quickly, passing an injured Luke McCown, and outplaying Rattay in the pre-season. Looking back on it, not so impressive. :o

Its not an issue of Gaines talent...its an issue of the fact that Jammal Anderson and Adam Carriker seem to be better prospects

and

FO may have needed to do their homework
