He certainly isn't making an impact.  Hilliard is the better "sure" thing on 3rd down.  Despite the needs on D, there is definitely a need for a solid second receiver.

Which we hopefully filled in the 3rd round this year

Ya even the nfl crew made note on the TD pass to Stovall that its unusual to use a rookie in that spot. You'd have expected Clayton to be the target.

I'm still hoping he re-emerges before the end of the year. If not, bring on Stovall, he's got more size and he's a ball catching machine unlike Claytons case of dropsies (Which hasn't been as bad as last year, but still...).

Too early to tell.  When he was slumping last year JG re-tooled and made Galloway the "go to" WR.  This year that has continued.  JG has continued to talked up Clayton and say he is having a good year.  With Grads no the starter, I think Claytons routes will be more of an impact.

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.

Clayton pulled a Shaun King on us.   It seems he got lazy after his rookie year.    From what I hear, he spends alot of time partying.   I don't think the same was ever said about Jerry Rice.

I have said this so many times....something in that PewterReport article on Clayton last year before the 2005 season rubbed me the wrong way. I came out and stated I though Clayton had Fat Cat Syndrome. I can't put my finger on it, but I just did not like that interview.

I think that over the next 12 games you may see Clayton's numbers improve. Clayton is very often NOT the first option. To be honest with you, I don't think the starting QB he was playing for (Simms) did him any favors. If you look at Clayton's numbers from last year:

32 receptions, 372 yards, you have to balance that with this: during the first six games of the season with Griese at QB, Clayton had 19 catches for 223 yards. Under Simms, he had just 13 catches for 149 yards. The Griese numbers projected out to 51 catches for 600 yards. Not spectacular, but considering he was nursing an injury and the fact that Galloway had a career year, those would have been much more respectable numbers.

Clayton was a partier last year, this year, his only problem is that he's now the number 2... Galloway has 14 catches, Hilliard has 11, and Clayton has 10.

The 3rd down plays are designed for Hilliard. Most of the other passing plays are designed for Galloway.

Both of the QBs we've had in have thrown to either their #1 target or their outlet receiver. (Or the other team). Or they have gotten sacked.

No, Clayton is NOT producing the way we'd expect, but it's not just him. If, by the end of week 9 (our 8th game) Clayton isn't within 10 catches of Galloway, AND 2nd on the team in receptions, then I will believe he is a bust.
