I remember we drafted him and he was a solid player at FSU. So instead of letting him develop we keep a crap load of terrible receivers and cut him, and now he seems to be back to his old self on Indy. Our management is effin retarded.

Indeed. I'm still pissed that we let Sly Mo go too.

Because we didn't have Peyton Manning to throw to him.

Manning could make Samie Parker look good.

He has better hands than Webb and he's a better returner than Drummond.

Our management is effin retarded.Hindsight is a wonderful tool, isn't it? It's incredibally easy to say "If only we had _________ed, then we would have _________" AND it makes you look smart, too.

The problem is nobody has a ****ing time machine. When a player doesn't understand the play book, is injured all the time, can't catch, and has been a bum on the team for the past two seasons while other players have surpassed him, it's time to let him go. Let's see you be a coach in the NFL and display good judgement on all players.

Am I defending the shit we've had to put up with all these seasons? No, I'm not, and I'm fine with people being negative and critical. But blind criticism like this without thought just doesn't work, and that's when I have a problem with it.

So to summarize, you're an idiot.

The Cowboys cut Jimmy Smith

The Eagles cut Chris Carter

Nick Lowry was cut 11 times before he caught on with the Chiefs.


Point is, all teams make mistakes and some players need the change or a slap in the face to serve as a wake up call.

My point is he was a proven player in college. And he was like a 3rd or 4th round pick. So we wouldn't have had to pay him shit. Not like when we got a complete scrub in college, Ryan Sims, just because his fat ass did well at the combine. Who gives a flying **** about the combine, watch them play in college. Theres alot more to football than stats....

Thorpe was cut because he couldn't pick up the system.

This guy is behind Aaron Moorehead on the depth chart, who ****ing cares if we cut him. Indy has alot of money tied into their superstars, they don't have very good depth. The Colts receiving corp is three deep, they don't have shit behind Gonzalez.

Who gives a shit where he is on Indy's depth chart? Bowe would be #3 on theirs and any other WR on our team wouldn't even be on their roster. My point is our WR's outside of Bowe suck dog shit and we could have used this guy.

Jimmy Smith broke his leg and was never supposed to play football again.

Chris Carter had an undisclosed cocaine problem.

Nick Lowery had many other problems. Most of which have never been made public.



So now, whatcha got?

Like Marcus Nash? or Jerome Pathon?

There's been a ton of receivers that didn't "click" with Manning.

Cutting Thorpe may or may not have been a mistake. But to say that "anyone" would look "good" with Manning is uninformed nonsense.

Uh, while we are at it what about Leija on the OL. Wern't they saying last night that the Left side of the OL was dominating the SD line then there is a pic of Leija? Maybe we could have used his help on the OL this year? But nooooooooo King Carl has to play the arrogant GM who thinks he's smarter than everyone else and try to slip him by on the practice squad. :banghead:

Are we really saying that we want someone who's nickname should definitely be Crap be on the team. I literally started a Crap chant during the game when he was returning that punt.... it didn't really work and I would never want to have to do that again (but if it would bring a divison rival to a loss, i definitely would....)

Indy is about to start playing DBs at WR. Severely depleted by injury. Even Manning's brilliant play wasn't enough to make Thorpe look serviceable. I like Webb and Parker much more.

This is dumb . Thorpe didn't "come on" or anything. He was just a wr pressed into starting. The day Webb had to start, he looked more impressive than Thorpe.

Boy I can't believe we let go of Larry Parker. He had 6 receptions for 76 yards against the Colts in 2001 and 2 TD's. If we'd have kept him, surely we would have beat them in the playoffs last year.

Huh?

Mikhael Ricks was a first round draft choice of San Diego. They gave up a second and a first to get him (Bobby Beathard days). Once he was cut, he came to KC, where he had a few uneventful seasons.

He was never on the practice squad.
