Newsflash.. Players take time to develop




When considering our young wide receiver corps, I think we should consult our good friend ... Historical Perspective.

Lets take a gander at Steve Smith's first 2 years in the league

2001  10 catches 154 yards 0 TDs

2002 54 catches 872 yards 3 TDs

Ram chop would have cut him. Lets look at Miles Austins first 3.

2006 All blanks

2007 5 catches 76 yards 0 TDs

2008 13 cathces 278 yards 3 TDs

Another scrub.  Not even cut out for CFL.  How about Hall of Famer Michael Irvin:

32 654 5

26 378 2

20 413 5

The point is that in this day of internet flame wars, we have lost perspective of player development.  Our guys can actually be something great someday.  It may just take some time.  Same goes for Chris Long.  He is way ahead of where Mike Strahan was at this time.
