    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?



    It will be interesting to see if they carry six or seven WRs.

    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?

    Definitely hoping Deonte Thompson's injury isn't too serious. I agree that "stashing" him on IR would hinder his development. But if Deonte could get a lot of reps in this year, the coaches would have a better idea of how to proceed going forward. Does he have No. 2 potential? Or is his role more likely to be as Jacoby's replacement in 2014 (note: I don't view Jacoby as a true No. 2)? Or would Thompson show that he's no better than our other also-rans if playing on a regular basis? I'm hoping the latter doesn't turn out to be the case, but there's only one way to find out, and IR stashing ain't it.

    Would you rather have Doss, who is currently healthy, make the roster with Thompson on IR or Thompson, who may miss some games, make the roster with Doss released?

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I was really rooting for Doss, but I've never seen a young guy come back from a down streak like this. I think it's time to let him go. Thompson needs his shot, and I think this is the perfect year for it.

    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?

    Anything new on Deonte? I can't find anything anywhere. Now that he's made the 53 (for the moment, I guess... since moves remain to be made) what is his timetable? Has he been practicing?

    Deonte returned to practice on a limited basis today.

    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?

    What do we realistically expect him to bring to the team when he returns? And that's not meant to be a rhetorical type of diss at him but actually just a legitimate question.

    I expect him to be faster than Stokely. Maybe he can get open and present a better target for Joe. I don't expect him to catch as well as Stokely. Who knows... but, it is what it is. If he is the future, then better to get the reps now than starting next year.

    I share the same questions. Any player who gets their own thread must be highly thought of. Other than a good preseason performance (last year) I'm not seeing the potential here. Guess time will tell.

    It'd be nice he turned out to be pur Victor Cruz...that super fast slot receiver who runs excellent routes and has the speed to line up outside as well in 3 wide sets

    Bisciotti was talking Deonte up on Sirius in the preseason. When the owner is excited for a player who hasn't really done anything in the NFL it tells you something. The guys Steve trusts are high on Deonte which is good enough for me.

    Okay I didn't know that. I was out of the country during the entire preseason so that would explain

    Re: Any news about Deonte's injury?

    Over the summer they were talking about him being the #2 WR going into the season. "They" being the coaches, etc.

    Now of course, there have been many rave reviews of the work of Tandon Doss in the past as well..,.

    But they were saying Deonte's hands and route running had really improved and of course with his crazy speed they were thinking they might have a playmaker on their hands. That was, as best I can remember, the basis for the excitement. Yet to be seen of course, but they were planning on /hoping for him being a significant part of the offense.
