    I'm sure someone will think I'm a Stooler fan now or something like that becuase I don't blindly follow everything Ozzie does. Oh well - go ahead and flame me now.
    Dude, I don't post around here all that much, but this comes off as a whiny load of crap. Get over yourself, it's a discussion board, other people won't always agree with what you say, especially when it's opinion not based on facts (and premature, IMO).

    And I've seen people question Newsome on this board. I've done it myself. The thing is, there often isn't a whole lot to question. Now put your big boy pants on and get over it....

    this is a discussion board. If you can't present a logical argument to back up your "opinions", expect to get bitch-slapped.

    If you are basing your opinion on watching torrey in college and deciding then that you didn't think he was going to be any good in the nfl and disagreed with ozzie for drafting him, that is cool.

    But if you are basing your opinion on a few preseason games, you are kinda jumping the gun and over reacting a little bit.

    I wouldn't worry about it. We don't need him this year. He has the luxury of sitting back and learning from boldin and evans for the next couple years. Give it a little patience, bro.

    I don't think that any of the WRs after Bolding and Evans have shown a thing. Laquan maybe, but he's had what, 5 catches and not against prime time defenders?

    There's a ton of potential with Dickson & Pitta and a 2 TE offense, so I'm not worried. Someone will step up. Also, there's gonna be what, almost a thousand players released. There will be a WR in there that's worth a steamer somewhere.

    I don't see them adding another WR. By the end of the year I think we see Doss in the number 3 spot, either him or Reed.

    Dickson, Pitta, and Doss have all made big plays at various points this preseason. We don't need any of them to be studs right now as long as they can platoon for good production.

    After Boldin, Evans, and Rice all take their bites there aren't going to be a lot of balls left to spread around. Those three should easily pull in about 175-200 catches and Joe averages about 290 completions a year. If any of them catches 40 balls on his own it would mean he's having a dynamite year in terms of his catch per target rate or one of the big three went down.

    You're free to have an opinion, but if you're going to put one out there for everyone to judge, don't cry when people actually do.

    I have no problems with Oz taking Torrey Smith, because so many experts (and "experts") evaluated him as a 1st or 2nd round choice. Oz did not reach for T Smith. He made what appeared to be a very good choice, especially given the team's needs at that point. Way too soon to call T Smith a bust.

    Re: Ain't the Kool-Aid Cold Today

    I am not willing to call Torrey Smith a bust yet, but I also thought that Kyle Boller would turn into a decent QB and Joe Flacco was not ready to QB an NFL team in his rookie year. I used to think that Ozzie was out of his skull couple of times over the past 15 years, only to find out that he knows a lot more than I do about evaluating talent. I am not giving him a free pass (Travis Taylor, Mark Clayton, etc), but he has done things right quite a few times (Ray Lewis, Ray Rice).

    Basically like the other poster noted, Jerry Rice didn't start out lighting up the scoreboard, lets not put the cart before the horse. Give the kid a chance.

    Oh my God, you are such a little baby. *waaa waaa waaa* Before I make my point I'd like to preface it by saying if everyone thinks I'm an idiot, regardless of of the relative merits or idiocy of my comments, that it is obviously the board's fault. And if you do think my opinion is idiotic, I'll pretend that validates my conviction that the problem is the board and not my opinion. WA!
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.

    It's pretty interesting how all those Kruger jokes stopped after the first preseason game.

    Dear forums poster Ravenfan_11,

    I'm sorry you feel you get "blasted" for an opinion because people disagreed with you. It is COMPLETELY irrational for these harsh people to disagree with such a well thought out thread about a player who's had limited time in four preseason games. I mean, there's no way he recovers from this, right? Pretty much a death sentence at this point. A player who came out as a junior and has no concept of NFL offense at this point..man, there's just no way out. I am truly sorry for this obvious waste of a draft pick.

    Best,

    Sephy
