It's still WAY TOO EARLY TO JUDGE THE DRAFT, any one who passes such absolute judgement on the draft now is an idiot. Period.

NO ONE can say that any other player they may have selected would be contributing any more than these guys are now.

One can certainly complain that maybe the coaches aren't getting enough out of the rookies now, but that's about all that is reasonable.

Fred Davis has great hands. Send him on 4-5 fly patterns a game vs. LB's even if he doesn't know the rest of the O. Is Brooks Bernard available?

For every one hating on me using the word for hating on the draft - It's alright.

All I am saying is, you can't lump the whole draft class together.

Rinehart and Tryon are work in progresses ment to help us in later years.

Cork - You mentioned the WR in philly. He only helps one or 2 plays a game. That's not a big contribution (Thomas contributes on the same amount of plays a game). Denver's is legit. Avery who caught the ball on Torrence is a rookie, and that was his 1st catch of the game......

Again, Davis won't get major playing time until he can block better than Yoder. Everyone dosen't automatically supplant veteren players.

Kelly is trying his best to get on the field, but he's injured and that's holding him back learning the offense. Thomas had some flashes, just not yesterday.

Brooks, I can't defend, but I wouldn't get rid of him just yet.

Anyway. All I saying is, it's only been 6 games. Looking at the 1st 6 games and this is a veteren team. How can you expect these rookies to hit the ground running and be on the same level of these vetetrens who played under Gibbs 2.0 for some years?

Give them some time people!

And stay medium does not stay mediocre..........

Jason Taylor cost us two draft picks and with all these injuries does anybody think he doesn't retire after this year? Giving Vinny credit for blowing a 2nd rounder on an old finesse DE to play in the NFC EAST when he could have drafted a young power one instead of three young pass catchers that can't stay healthy, can't run routes, can't understand the playbook, and can't have a play come near them without getting a penalty isn't a very good argument FOR Vinny.

what rookie power end is producing now for there team? Also, this rush to judement about the draft is a bit early. Take for instance the Gints, most of there rookies didn't come on until the latter end of the season. Still a lot of time to judge this draft.

What old defensive end is producing for us? My point is we wasted two picks on a old guy who is on the downside of his career to that we hope plays two years to replace another old guy who was injury prone and shouldn't have been a starter because we continue to draft young lineman when we could have drafted a guy that might play for us for 5 to 6 years.

My point is that JT will (if he's healthy) have more of an impact this year. At the point the skins got JT, the draft was over and the skins needed to address a need. If the skins drafted a DE, whose to say they don't make that more for JT anyway. Most DE's drafted this year in the 2nd round aren't making an impact. Lawrence Jackson has 15 tackles and 2 sacks. Groves 8 tackles, 1.5 sacks. Merling 12 tackles, 1 sack. Calais Campbell 11 tackles. To make a judgement about the WR the skins got at this point is too early.

As bad as Brooks has been, I still think he has good potential. Any thoughts on taking a chance and putting him on the practice squad? Has a punter ever been on a practice squad before?

Romo is out 4 weeks. They have 3 games and a bye before playing in DC. So he should be back for us. I doubt a broken pinkie will keep him out of that game.
