    Re: Welcome to Baltimore Miles Boykin

    It was an overreaction to crown him a boom last week.

    It is an overreaction to crown him a bust this week.

    On-air, Billick and Sandusky criticized Boykin for not coming back to Lamar on that play. But they also both said exactly what you did, that it was a fairly typical rookie learning point.
    I am still high on Boykin and don't believe that Thursday night showed us anything but where the learning curve is.

    He needs to be pissed off for greatness.

    Taking him out of the game early (if one or two of his patterns were not quite right) can only help this.

    Only if he's put back in later. He still needs the reps.

    I watched him again these last 2 games this past weekend and you can see the raw talent, but he has a ways to go before he's an impact guy IMHO.

    You normally see WR's really blossom their second years (unless you are freaks like Beckham/Green/Julio/Moss) and I think we are seeing why. You can see him thinking and hesitating sometimes on certain routes and that will be a big barrier until he really gets comfortable.

    IMHO this year, we are really going to have to rely on the TE's in a relatively short passing game because Brown is going to be playing catchup all season and Boykin continues to need the reps/confidence to make things second nature.
    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.

    Going back to that 4th year player thing, I think it's going to be a huge prove it year for Moore.

    If he can actually produce in the regular season it will be great.

    I think we'll see a lot of Moore and Roberts on the outside with Boykin and Brown being worked in.

    I agree with your assessment completely.

    Riw, what you post is very possibly what may happen to this rookie WR. His talent does seem to be the material that will create success if he's open to coaching. Yes, the 2nd year (after an NFL regular season plus an off-season of training) may show him blooming into an impact player. I am optimistic about his, and this offense's, future... Bc

    I think he going to get a lot of run in the games this year. By week 4-5 I think things will start to come together for him.

    His work ethic, intelligence, and drive to be great are off the charts. He will make something of himself in due time. He just needs to get past the rookie jitters.

    Re: Welcome to Baltimore Miles Boykin

    Sounds like Boykin had the play of the day in 7-on-7.

    But he also had the only incomplete on a successful 3/4 in the RZ (all 3 TDs). The incomplete was a drop he should have had.

    Expect an up and down year with a lot of learning. He just needs ot make mroe plays than he doesnt make and he should continue to develop.

    I just hope he produces enough to get significant snaps this year. As we've seen with guys like Moore, Tim Williams and Tyrus Bowser you need to do enough to crack the lineup. Once you do that you'll get some time to stick around as with Matt Judon and Orlando Brown Jr. It's doing enough in practice to get on the field in the first place that seems to be tough for these rookies not taken in the 1st round.
