CJ Davis totally outplayed him in the preseason anyway.

Any word on who we signed in his stead? Hopefully a LB who can cover haha. But probably another OL

I agree. I was shocked Blake even made the team. Perhaps Elway and Fox were worried he wouldn't clear waivers? Anyone who watched him in camp or the preseason, rather than simply looked at where he was drafted, wouldn't want him on their team.

I hate to write off someone so early but it looks like Elway and Fox missed on Blake.

Blake always was a bit of a project to start. We'll see how he's doing next season and if he's not improved then he's just another Seth Olsen.

Geez the way some folks write off players so quickly is just perplexing. He is a 4th rounder who needs some polish to his game. It would have been nice for him to come in right away and challenge for a starting spot. He didnt.
Lets at least give him a couple seasons to see what he might evolve in to before we kick him to the curb. I guarantee you if he were cut he would never have made it through waivers. I remember quite a few folks who wanted to tab Trevor Pryce a bust because he looked awful early in his career. Not to say Blake is the equivalent of Pryce but I think you get my point.

I only saw him one time and he looked really heavy footed. Like he was playing in ankle deep mud.

With a lot of work that can be corrected. (like running in place w/ high knees for an hour a day for a year) Wink
