What scares me is Gruden taking another wide receiver in R1-3 instead of desperately needed defense. 

Its going to look to some people like a different play every time we use it, but pretty soon theyll be able to recognize it....by watching the official for the first-down signal.   -Vincent T. Lombardi

all the talk when we drafted stovall was the he played in a pro-style offence and was ready to go out the box , he looked good in pre-season but that does not mean much at game time, who know why he is not playing he shoudl be getting time on the field for sure

This is pretty simple.  As a rookie the only way you are going to earn playing time is on the "practice" field.  He has 3 veterans (4 if you count Warren) ahead of him on the depth chart and until he can outperform them on the practice field he is not going to see much playing time or even be active for games.  Most coaches won't let a player play unless they have practiced during the week.  And that is even moreso for a rookie.

Now that the season is definitely shot, his chances of getting playing time have increased since JG and Co will probably want to see what he looks like against professional competition in a real game situation versus preseason where the defenses are much less complicated and coverages are not disguised.

Truths:
1.  Never have an argument with an idiot.  They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with their experience.
2.  For some it would be better if they remained silent and be thought a fool than to speak and erase all doubt.

Agreed, but if he isn't outplaying Clayton we are in serious trouble.

What I don't understand is why he can't even get playing time in the garbage minutes in a second half of a Cowboys game where we are getting entirely blown out. Now that is Gruden's fault, and I am not happy about that.

lets say they put stovall in.. and he does GREAT.. better then expected before he is ready..

Then comes out next year.. Sucks... bad year..

what does that do to his confidence?

Think about that!

Yours truly..

Given a year of practicing and learning the playbook he may be the real deal.  With the year in the tank, maybe we will see more of the young guys the rest of the year.
