i will quote someone else here in a thread you might have missed.  watkins was never resigning.  
that came from someone who doesn't miss.  and i have good reason to believe them.
 
disagree with me if you want.  won't change nada.


Whatever, I'm not impressed. You make it sound as if it was Sammy and not the FO. Unless you or whomever heard it from SW or his agent personally , its meaningless drivel.

We didn't "have" to go to rookie for a crucial catch. He was wide open.

To say you know Sammy would have been that open or that he'd catch that ball is myopic at best.

When you have Taylor as your qb it doesn't matter who's out there.

Run, run, throw. You're severely handicapping any receivers when the D knows you have to throw on third down.

Either Taylor is that bad and they don't trust him or we have a terrible offensive scheme. Either one sucks and I'm so bummed this is what we have to look forward to all year.

I thought we were done with this style of play, I thought we were "unleashing" Taylor.

All smoke and mirrors. Can't even get excited about the Broncos game now.

 

No offense, you either do not understand passing or you did not watch any part of the play other than the part where the ball went off Zay's hands.  

 

The film 100% shows ZJ stumble slightly on his cut just enough to throw him slightly off his route causing him to turn and spot the ball late.  That is the ONLY reason it was a tough catch, not because it was a bad pass.  Had Zay NOT had the sloppy cut he would have been hit right in the hands for an easy walk in TD rather than try an akward stretch.

 

Sammy is an exceptional route runner.  ZJ had an unforced sloppy cut.  Its MORE than safe to say had Sammy been running that route he would have caught the ball in stride walking into the end zone because he would have ran a precise route.  Furthermore, even if Sammy had the same stumble, that is very much in Sammys catch radius and would have likely still made the catch in the first place.  But that point is mute, I have no doubt the route would have been crisp and it would have been an easy catch and walk in.

 

You and a few others keep making it about the long stretch to catch the ball while completely ignoring that was SELF INFLICTED by ZJ with his poor cut and late turn for the ball, all of which happened when the ball was already in the air going to the spot where he should have been for an easy score.

To have a full picture of who won the trade, I agree.

But when you lose a game because you score 3 points and have to go to a rookie wr for a crucial catch, then it's ok to wonder if Sammy makes a difference.

We have a high school passing attack.

 

how did he do yesterday against washington? was it two catches for 30 yds?

 

woods had one catch for 8 yrds.

 

not trying to knock him but since goffs go to guy yesterday was everett and gurley, watkins was no real factor. as for whether the zay play would of come out differently had watkins been there. you would like to believe it would of but then again I couldn't say with certainty watkins makes that catch either.

 

 

time to move on from sammy watkins.

Sammy was last seen holding Josh Norman's pocket walking around the Redskins locker room.

I like The Rams new helmet design. A stripe of yellow to outline the white horns would be cooler though.

Just wanted to mention that. Sammy Who?

They're gonna get him killed on the routes they have him on


So far SW off to a quiet start. Only 2 targets yesterday for 30. 28 on 1 catch. Looks like he's still being underutilized just like in Buffalo.

I don't see the point in wanting to know who "won" the trade. NFL trades are not made to try to fleece the other side, they are made to try to be mutually beneficial to both sides. One because everyone knows everyone in league personnel offices and information is rarely withheld when doing a deal. If a team feels they got fleeced, they won't want to do business with that team in the future.

If a player is in the drug program they don't have to share that but they do. If they have long term health concerns , locker room issues, etc. they don't have to share that but they do. Teams want as many options as possible to be able to make trades - and agents are involved as well. The goal is for everyone to feel happy with what they got in the deal, not for one side to feel they got a bad deal. Ideally both teams will feel they got value in return, with the openness to do more deals in the future. It doesn't always work out that way but that's the goal.

I mean.....that sounds good......but no.

 

Nobody swung more deals than Jimmy Johnson and he made no bones about the fact that he was trying to lopsidedly win trades.

 

Something tells me Bill Belichick felt no remorse giving the Raiders peanuts for Randy Moss or taking a first rounder from the Bills for Bledsoe when he felt Bledsoe was washed up.

 

You have some good takes.......then you have some of these. :thumbsup:

Okay that explains his/her hair.

 

 

Still would have benn nice to at least get laid at Homecoming instead of sitting home jerking around though  :nana:

 

The girl just wanted you to pay for the limo, tux, tickets, etc but was planning on going home with someone else who would promise week on beach in south seas isle.

enjoy your WRs Sammy haters!!


Don't hate him. But I dont think his 2 catches for 30 yards this week would have made a difference is this game. TT was terrible.

I do too.......so long as he doesn't get those Josh Reed-yips.

 

Zay had a surreal catch radius in college.......he normally catches both balls that went off his hands yesterday.

 

Without those magic hands he's nothing special.

 

The big issue right now is that McDermott has assembled a VERY old roster for a reason.........to avoid on-field mistakes.........and then the game comes down to a rookie making a play........that's kinda' on the coach.

He's catching 100% of his targets? I dunno, maybe it's me, but 100% sounds kinda good. Like a trend. You might wanna try that idea a little more.

Yea.

Sammy wants the ball. And if he doesn't get it I'd be surprised to see him back in LA next year.
