I guess this is better than when Stevie Johnson declared that he was going to start working out.

You continue to outperform your previous posts!

Ok so no more "little job" rants. Great.

Will you play football this year?




Imo


I want to know the answer to that too. Will you play football if you are medicall cleared to play football like last year or will you not play football.?

Given his draft status, his productivity needs to at least match those of the pro bowl receivers taken after him in the 2014 draft.

 

That in absolutely no way is how you define a bust.

Isn't that the standard of grading bills players?  If someone was drafted after a bills player that performs better means the bills pick is/was a bust.

Sammy didn't need a new mindset... I think he needed a pair of new cleats... Perhaps a new playbook... It's TT who's mind wasn't right...

Now if only his QB can mature into a true passer...

They were one of the best combos in the NFL the second half of 2015. Now if only Watkins can stay on the field this year....oh that's right. You stated on the BBMB that you could throw the ball to Watkins. See you in camp.

Love hearing about how he would be laying on the ground gasping for air after wind sprints... imagine if he actually put in the work

"the past couple months"?  Seems like a pretty small recent window?
 
In general thought this whole comment was very strange.  Never had heard of Sammy's maturity or character being held in question prior? 

That was my first thought too...

He got his maturity advice from MD 99.

His miserable snap-to-release time for starters...

 

I'd like to see TT put on big-boy pants and LEAD this offense... Take control of the tempo... I'd like to see TT be the reason we win 10+ games a season... If he does that, I'll give him all the praise that goes along with it.

Think not having his option not picked up has anything to do with this?


The pressure is on, the clock is ticking! Next deal sets you up for generations. Time to get very, very, serious. THAT is what declining the option does for you.

(Though I'm more of a 'wus, and probably would have given it to him.)

McD doesn't play that game :devil: I'm like you. I'm emotionally attached to Sammy and I think he's amazing. Im ok with their approach.

I have matured in my job over the years, too. This is expected.  That being said, I don't think Sammy's maturity ever limited him as much as his offensive coordinator, coach, QB, health and surrounding cast has. This is a fluff piece.

Pretty much my thought as well.

 

Sammy's maturity level and mindset are relatively meaningless when Tyrod fails to see him or deliver the ball accurately to him so consistently.

True, but wasn't his career derailed by injuries soon after that statement?  That would be sad if his body fell apart after he decided to start putting in the work.  Then again, it's more likely he was just talking ****.

But then again, if Tyrod threw him the ball while he was over on the bench, we'd all have EJ flashbacks wondering how the ball got THERE? :)

I think the way they played this will lead to a pretty good year for Sammy. No more sliding or looking for the sideline when he gets the ball. And I am a Sammy FAN.

I hope that this new found maturity does not mean he'll run for the sidelines even earlier.

His snap to release is because he can do it.....defenses are terrified of losing contain and breaking lose in their secondary.

 

We are moving into a new offense which might require him to have to get the ball out sooner in a WCO.......this year is gonna tell us a lot

Easy to act mature when there's no adversity. Let's see how Sammy's doing if/when there's a problem. That'll tell us where he is.
