This is fresh off another post response of mine. But having just finished typing it up, I now have this insatiable curiosity about what the DN consensus is on Bobby Wade. Truly, I need to know if my WR scouting and player contribution assessment is on or off base. I realize veteran WR presence (not running the wrong routes, blocking, etc.) is crucial at certain points in the season, but at what overall cost??
After reading Sidney's Percy blog, I either don’t fully follow or flat out disagree with Sidney’s comment about having to compete for a slot with Percy. I hate to trash Bobby Wade here, but I will.. :) A Bears reject WR?? Who WOULDN’T!!!? Jesus.. Rice barely being on the field already has MORE career touchdowns! (8-7) Yes, career. I am eagerly awaiting, but won’t hold my breath, the release of Wade. I realize that Percy will definitely be running up hill, as far as trying to develop into an every-down starting WR in the NFL.
But does anyone agree with me in saying that I’d like to see BB, Percy in the slot, and Rice on the other end most downs in 3-wide? And to me, BB and Rice/Percy interchangeably for all 2-WR sets. Man, even Allison has more game than Wade.
I can't get my hopes up on a verdict.. I first hope for a trial. Hopefully that's what training camp is for.
