they should have him catch 500 passes a day.

WOW, that would mean throwing him about 2,500 balls a day.....that is a lot of work.

C'mon DTG.......the blame rests solely on the shoulders of Carnell. Pitt and Graham seem to do ok.

Yeah, why even have a position coach, eh?


According to your logic, we should blame Rod Marinelli for Booger being a miserable failure.

You've gotta come better than that DTG.

Not really, bc I know you noticed the improvement in last year's defensive backfield.  Phillips did not get  hit in the head by the football fairy's wand - Raheem took the same players and made them better.  It does happen.

And given Valero's diatribe on the way to St. Louis, it would not surprise me if his coaching ability matches well with his business acumen and overall class.

Dave, i'm not saying coaching doesn't impact play on the field but to blame Valero for Carnell's ineptitude is unfounded IMO... especially when an undrafted Graham can come off the bench and be productive.

As for Raheem's impact on Flip, is it possible that the drafting of TWO safeties could've contributed to lighting a fire under his backside?

I think you need to re-read what I wrote. Hate, I know that you're intelligent and can understand what I wrote a lot better than the above indicates.

Don't discount the impact that Morris has had on the secondary and, in fact, on the defensive unit as a whole. The guy has been huge for them.

Seriously, how hard can it be to catch? I'm sure we can all catch a football thrown our way, particularly when its thrown by a QB standing no more than about 20 yards away.

Why do you think CB's exist?

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.
