RE: Cut Henderson......

i think we all have the same sentiment.... especially when we have guys that may not be as fast but can catch everything thrown their way... might be a different story if we had nobody better... we'd have to endure his consistent inconsistency....

RE: Cut Henderson......

He may be okay as a PR or KR as I said in another thread, but not WR. Receivers have to be able to catch the ball while in motion. As for the speed thing.....you've got a guy that's 6'4"-230 lbs., runs a 4.45 forty & doesn't drop anything. Play Colston in the #2 spot, Hass in the #3, trade Stallworth for a DT or a CB that can actually play, & move Henderson to PR or KR.

RE: Cut Henderson......

it may be a little premature to lobby for colston at #2.... let's have him go against a 1st team defense first.... don't get hung up on his physical size and speed.... he's good... but that jump you are talking about is a little premature.... good ideas though if in fact he can play the #2... hass is definitely our #3.... the guy is the second coming of ricky proehl, wayne chrebet, and steve largent.... alright it's nascar time so i'll see you guys later...

He did. He was wide open for six last night had Brees not been under pressure & threw it about 10 feet over his head. That was against the Titans 1st team defense. Sorry.... I've been pulling for this guy since before the draft & I really think he'll be a good one.

Colston actually that fast? Sounds like a slightly bigger Owens...

He may actually be faster.

Colston, a late-round pick at best after catching 70 passes for 975 yards and five touchdowns for Hofstra last fall, ran a 4.43 40-yard dash at the combine. Combine that speed with a 37-inch vertical jump, a 10-3 broad jump and a long shuttle time of 11.27 seconds, and Colston's secret is out.

He isn't considered a late-round pick anymore.

"I think I surprised a lot of NFL people with my time in the 40," said Colston, back in Harrisburg after spending last Thursday through Sunday in Indianapolis.

"I really don't think I was expected to run that fast, not at my size. I think most people were probably thinking I'd run around 4.6.

The worst time I've seen on him so for in the forty is 4.55.

As for the T.O. comparison.....didn't he come out of nowhere from a small school as well?

RE: Re: RE: Re: RE: Cut Henderson......

whoa now.... we are comparing our late round pick of 2006 to a guy that average 1200yds, 80 catches, and 12 td's a year... that's lofty.... especially since TO does that against the best defensive backs in the league and colston has played in a preseason game vs. the titans... in time grasshopper, in time.... let's not induct colston into the hall of fame just based on his size and speed.... we'll see how good he is when he goes up against ronde barber, ken lucas, deangelo hall, etc....

Man calm down, the only thing I compared was size and speed. Nobody talked about production or anything such.
