*Correction: He played in the very last preseason game and had 2 catches.

2013-He had a good camp last year, good enough to make the team.

2014-He's having a great camp so far (it hasn't even been two weeks yet)

So he's had one good camp so far and has not had "tons of opportunity".
He's had plenty of opportunity. If there are still questions about him after this preseason then there are no excuses. Three healthy training camps and actual game tape on him and Stills is ahead of him and hell, even Joe Morgan may be ahead of him on the depth chart. Not good.

Again with the 3 healthy training camps? I give up.

And Stills was in contention for rookie of the year. Not sure how thats relevant to the discussion. That sounds like deflection.

How many healthy training camps does it take?! Stills was drafted a round later than him and in your words "was in in contention for rookie of the year." Now Toon's battling for a roster spot with guys like Morgan and Coleman... What's his excuse?

Re: Brandon Coleman, An Intriguing Conundrum

I've got high hopes for Nick Toon to turn it around. I was ready to cut him after the Jets game my damn self, but that good size and decent speed that made me like him when we drafted him is starting to show itself again. Health issues and confidence are his only problems. He's got the tools. He just needs the reps. Unfortunately for him though, I think we see the Meachem from our Super Bowl run, another leap in progression by Kenny Stills, and a lot of balls thrown to Brandin Cooks. Not to mention the Colston/Graham combo. Bu we're good for a couple injuries at WR every year anyway.

You're all over the place. Focus on the topic and quit deflecting.

Toon is having a great camp
Toon did not have 3 healthy training camps
Toon did not "tons of opportunities"
No one is claiming he's better than Stills
Everyone knows he's battling for a roster spot
No one is making any excuses for him
Right now he's probably ahead of Morgan and Coleman

Why the hate, did he sleep with your BFF?

Wow... "Did he sleep with your BFF?" That's some incredibly mature smack talk. I'm sure your family will be proud of that.

He could possibly make the squad........if we have one injury at WR his opportunity is there.

Re: Brandon Coleman, An Intriguing Conundrum

Interesting similarities between Coleman and Colston. No way to know if Coleman possesses Colstons toughness, hands or ability to grab balls with DBs draped all over him. I watched Coleman's highlights and I saw poor body control and not much aggressiveness. If he had a nasty attitude like Keyshawn Johnson or Michael Irving maybe, but I'm guessing PS at best.

Re: Brandon Coleman, An Intriguing Conundrum

Just want to see Coleman get the opportunities; drops don't cut it, but now that he's in a passing system with coaches with extensive technique knowledge, I'd like to see that size, catch radius in action...
