Secondly, from what I have read they are looking at Terrell to specifically to be the number three receiver. It seems to me Lelie's job is not in jeopardy.
    Actually he would suppliment Lelie, because Lelie's the burner in our offese. The question is can he run routes down to the tee. He'd become the possesion replacing Rod in the future, in essence becoming the #2 WR as Lelie moved into the #1 slot.

    What? You don't think 4.42 speed is good enough to stretch defenses?

    And if you know Shanny like I know Shanny, you understand that he qualifies the player for the position.

    If DT is good enough for #2, he will be #2. If not . . .

    I donno, man, Terrell is our biggest receiver on the roster at 6'3" 212 lbs. Sounds like he'd be pretty good at getting in peoples' way.

    ya, watts showed he can get open against nfl defenses. and he showed in college that he can catch the ball. and remeber his first training camp, when he was making all those circus catches? i think not holding on to the ball was more of a mental thing. hopefully he works hard and comes into camp with his confidence up.

    terrell doesnt have to live up to his #8 draft choice to be a big plus for us. if he can come in and make some 3rd down catches underneath and be presence in the redzone, he could be huge. he has good size and good hands. i think its pretty hard to really give a fair evaluation of his abilities from his days in chicago. they are a pretty predictable offense at the best of time, but going through 9 qb's in 4 years, or whatever it was, does nothing to help that.

    if watts can run routes like he did as a rookie but become more consistant holding on to the ball, and if terrell can show he is an nfl talent, we would have a pretty decent top 4 recievers. im not saying they would be the best in the league or anything, but the potential is there to have a pretty dynamic recieving corp. then adams or devoe can battle it out for the 5th spot with a late round rookie.

    its really going to be interesting to see how much of an impact dinger will have on watts, terrells and lelies games.
    I am delighted by Terrell's attitude. I remain concerned that he couldn't move up the depth chart last year, but his size makes him an intriguing fit as the #3 WR...... and I've long been a Michigan fan, so I'm definitely pulling for him. Adding 1 more veteran WR (to compete for the #3 spot) would eliminate our need for drafting a WR before the 4th rd., IMO. As it stands, I would rank DT and TE our top 2 need positions......followed by WR and DE. 2 DL and a TE with the 1st 3 picks would be my preference. I'd like to see Watts get another shot, but it will take more than a quote or 2 from Shanahan to convince me he hasn't already been written off. That being said, I hope Watts has a HUGE training camp/pre-season to force his way into the #4 spot.

    At least I know that Shanny still knows Darius Watts exists lol. I'd like to keep up to date with him because I like Darius Watts as a WR if he could become consistent.

    I thought this thread was about David Terell. I think he will do fine, if he wants it bad enough. Apparently he is already at Dove Valley, working on his skills, and preparing for the upcoming season. Perhaps he got a slow start with all of the QB changes in Chicago, and maybe he is a late bloomer. However, I like the drive and determination he is presently showing. Hey, he was a number 8 in the draft. Maybe he didn't catch on with all of the problems and turn over in QB personel, SO I reserve judgement until I see what he can or can't do. Apparently the coaches are pleased with his progress, and maybe we might get lucky.

    As for A.L., he is doing fine. If Rod Smith is happy with him, so am I.

    It doesn't matter if the other guy did or didn't point it out, I am pointing it out.

    Now if you notice are 3rd recievers yards dropped off greatly after Lelie, Lelie is fine, we just need a #3 to stretch the field for him.
    Well you forgot the CONSISTENT part. He gets his like 40 yards per catch. He is just not consistent enough. Im not saying he is bad, I like him, he just aint consistent enough.
