Any Faith In Willie

Just wondering if anyone here has any real faith in Snead making a 'comeback' this year and helping out on 3rd down...like he used to.

I like the dude - I want him to be the guy. Am I just in the wind?

Re: Any Faith In Willie

I feel the same way. I think he had to of realized his mistakes from last off season. It's the reason he didn't get a decent contract. He lost focus. I think he can make a difference this year like he's done in the past.

Re: Any Faith In Willie

I don't know what all went on with Willie last year, and neither do any of you. Any assumptions as to why he had a crappy year are purely speculative. He had 1,879 yards in two seasons as not the primary receiver, nor really even the second guy. You can't throw the money truck at him right now, but I wouldn't just flush him either.

Re: Any Faith In Willie

I do.

Snead gained a few pounds & it appears he was a tad out of shape during his 3 game suspension. Then he aggravated his hamstring which somewhat delayed getting back in "game shape". I didn't see the burst on his routes that we were accustomed to in previous years.

2017 was a bad year (on and off the field) for Slick Willie but I have confidence he'll return to form this season.

Re: Any Faith In Willie

Snead just had a forgettable year with lot of pressure to break out and things just kept falling away from him...

Look at his stats like this:
 
Year Gm GS Tgt Rec ReYd
2015 15 09 101 69 984
2016 15 04 104 72 895
2017 11 07 016 08 092

So who's the really Willie Snead IV? Looking at the numbers, a 26yo player, with a Brees-led offense, he'll bounce back just fine...

Snead has more talent than Lance Moore, he'll use the offseason to get right and get back to that 3rd down defensive back breaker for us...

Don't spend money in FA unless someone like a J. Matthews tier is interested in a one year min deal to pad states with Brees for a better deal next season...

Someone like that could come in, push Snead and Ginn; I would target a WR on Day 3 of the draft to develop behind them to start for 2019...

If Drew doesn't have faith in him, why should I?

Re: Any Faith In Willie

On one hand he showed even with his extremely limited play due to his own screw up he and Brees are still on the same page. Other hand so what. Many many other Wr's out there that are bigger, faster and not going to screw over the team. No. He is gone.
