We have to keep Bess. He would be in NE so fast if he were relesed. Bess would be a pro bowler in NE!
Can't believe an NFL coach would run Bess out on the perimeter. The guy has what, 4.7 speed. Our offense is horrible right now.
As for him playing outside... when you are in a 2 WR set... with one on each side... the fact that Bess is right now one of our top 2 WR's on the roster, he, by default... will play the outside.
Uh oh, that could be a painful experience. I did that with my son a couple years, when the Pats blew us off the field. The Pats fans were laughing in our faces. However, I consoled myself as we left Gillette Stadium that at least that game meant that Sparano and Ireland were gone. And it wasn't to be.
Bess is the measuring stick for this team. A total progress stopper and nothing special, he's the definition of mediocrity.
Don't get me wrong, I love the guy, but he caps our potential. Great teams look for ways to improve on Bess, our team, full of holes, let's Ireland joyfully pencil Bess in as a 5 year starter.
We need dynamic players that can create touchdowns out of nothing.
Also I was talking about in a 3 receiver set he was on the outside not in the slot, which I stated in my post. Matthews was in the slot instead of Bess. Watch the play again. This is stupid. Bess is a very limited player on the outside. In the 2 WR sets we are forced to play him out there which shows how bad our receiving core is currently. He shoudl see the field except in 3 receiver sets and then he would be outstanding. But when we have Matthews or Gaffney in Bess should always kick inside which he did not on more than one occasion which instantly puts us at a disadvantage schematically.
Let's go Miami!!!!
Bess is fine. He's going to be a staple of our offense for years to come.
Matthews? i was kinda high on him at the beginning of the season. But now, not so much.
If the guy can't get on the field on a regular basis, I don't see him factoring into much this year, or in the future. If the guy was good, he'd be playing and making plays.
One catch means nothing.
