Hmmm...
Stallworth - C+ (stayed healthy, showed flashes, get him the ball deep... damn it)
Gandy - C+ (toward the downside of his career)
Jacox - C (serviceable)
Bentley - B (started off slow at the new position)
Holland - C+ (pretty athletic for a big boy, still young)
Riley - D- (snap count buddy, snap count)
Williams - C (concentrate on the ball!)
Horn - A- (played hurt, played strong, ... played!)
Brooks - C+ (up, down, up, down, up, down, up...)
McAllister - B (hurt, line sucked, etc.)
Karney - A- (beast, not enough playing time)

no way will i give McCalister a B. He lost a step running in the hole. He lack the vision for finding the cut back lanes in some games. The outside speed for hit the corner was gone. He never was a elusive back cuz of injury lack of power to break alot of tackles. The guy wasn\'t himself last year but I do expect him play to form like the year after his rookie year cuz this a contract year. The question is how do you keep him motivated after this year?

hurt...that is his fault cuz of his conditioning in the offseason


line sucked...I\'ll give you that. They didn\'t get a great push on DL most of the time but their were a couple of cut back lanes and bounces to the outside he could\'ve ran if he was in better condition


coaches told him to get fat....that is a assumption people made on here. Nowhere could I find truth to that when it 1st pop up on here. I have read alot where the coaches wanted him play at the weight of 220 - 225, that was the main reason they brought in differ conditioning coaches. This year they brought in differ RB coach. The guy need to stay motivated and the only way i see that possible is to put a incentive package in his contract that will have him :dance:
