    And Another thing about Rashod Bateman Believers!

    Why is it that if you go on twitter, you just see the same three highlights regurgitated ad nauseam: The deep pass against the Jets. The slant against the Dolphins and the catch from last year against the Cardinals? In three years, that's it! Like, seriously, that's all we can come up with? And if you say he can't do something 'consistently enough', like clockwork, somebody posts one of those three clips. It never fails. In three years. Sad. That's just sad. Lol. This is our #2 WR ladies and gentleman. But don't worry, he's gonna add a fourth one this year. It'll be like John Cena's five moves a doom. We'll get one highlight for 2024 and one for 2025. Lol.

    I feel like Charles Barkley on Inside the NBA right now. THREE?! The same three, every time.

    Limited sample size, due to injuries and coming back clearly not 100%, and then falling down the pecking order.

    Cena made a 16 year career, or so, off those 5 moves.

    That said, I think if Bateman stays healthy all season (and that's a big IF), you'll become a believer

    Bateman played 16 games last year. 32 catches in 16 games! So if he plays in all 17 it changes?

    He also had the screws in his foot from the lisfranc. Most players in that situation have said they were never quite right and felt much, much, better the year after when the screws were removed. Bateman should be screw free this year

    So what you are saying is he was screwed all last year?

    Pretty much.

    For the record, I'm not saying Bateman's going to come out and compete with Tyreek Hill for best WR in the league. But he'll play well enough where people will not have an issue with him being on the team

    Which is odd coming from Ex because he was the one tempering everyone's expectations of Bateman going into last season coming off the liscfranc injury

    Thank you!.

    Deep pass against the Steelers, misjudges it in the air and ultimately drops it
    Deep pass versus the Rams, quits on the route for what should have been a big play: Incomplete
    Deep pass versus the Dolphins, misjudges it, then lunges for it, and drops it
    Playoff game. He runs a crosser, Lamar rolls to his right, looks RIGHT AT HIM and signals to him to cut his route upfield where there's tons of space. He stays on the crosser, the DB squeezes it, Lamar has nowhere to go with the ball.

    I could literally name more plays, off the top of my head, from last year alone, where he didn't step up, then I can actual noteworthy highlights for his entire career.

    If the situation is that there is a WR whom consistently gives the QB good looks to being wide tf open.. I think some context is required.

    So if the problem was the quarterback and it's the same quarterback in 2024 why would things be any better?

    Lamar managed to pass the ball to Flowers, Agholor, Beckham and Andrews for more receptions, touchdowns and yards than Bateman but somehow it's Lamar's fault that Bateman stunk?
