Tron is extremely overrated, at least. He is right about something.


Let me guess, AJ Green is better than Calvin?


While I'd take Megatron over AJ Green no questions asked, at least Green is the second best wide receiver in the game. Titus Young isn't even on the map.


Calvin cant change direction. Too robotic. Green is so much quicker...it isnt close. Calvin in the red zone is useless if it isn't a jumpball. Green brings more to the table because he is far more fluid/less robotic (megatron?).

God no. He's an athletic WR w/ potential but he is a grade A loser. He sabotaged his own offense for not getting the ball.

I suggested this a few weeks ago. If you totally ignore his off-field BS. He is a perfect Pats receiver, quick, agile, versatile, can go deep, good YAC receiver. It's a no-brainer. I think he could have success here BUT when you start looking at his off field stuff, then you have an issue. But didn't Haynesworth, Johnson and Talib have issues?

I can see us bringing him in, seeing what he can do, whether he's stopped being a Grade A [inappropriate/removed] and go from there. Talent wise, he's perfect in terms of value/production but the gamble is all in the other stuff.

Johnson and Haynesworth had issues. They came here and sucked. We aren't the sports rehabilitation center for dbags anymore. We don't need to waste time on a guy who isn't even very good.

Young is a 2nd year (soon to be 3rd) player who has barely tapped his potential (for whatever reason) I think he could develop in the right circumstances, unlike Haynesworth and Ocho who had already hit their ceilings.

Their ceilings aren't relevant to their attitudes.

It doesn't matter, the guy intentionally tried to help the opposing teams. I'd be furious if the Pats signed him. What happens if he doesn't get the ball here as much as he wants? He wouldn't. It's not like this was any wake up call. He was freaking out on twitter just a week and a half ago.

Johnson's issue was he was a show boater obsessed w/ image and sick of losing. Haynesworth didnt care. Haynesworth is a loser whereas Chad just wasn't good fit/smart enough.

I dont think he can. Ocho wasn't a problem in lockerroom or off the field he just wasn't good. Young sabotaged the offense for not getting enough targets. His ego is massive and completely undeserved. He only cares about himself and he's just not worth trying to get his head straight.

For every Johnson and Haynesworth there's a Dillon, Moss, Talib, etc. It's a crapshoot, but you're able to take that chance when you've got an ironclad locker room led by the best coach and best QB in the business. When they work out, they work out really well. When they don't, it's never at any significant detriment to the organization. I see no reason, should Belichick and co. see something they like from Young on the field (which I think could very well be the case), why they wouldn't give him a chance.

Which one? The one he did today or the one he's done twice a year every year since 2010?

If we're getting guys w/ issues why don't we get guys that actually want to change for the better. Titus Young hasn't shown he wants to. He still goes on twitter and saying how he's better WR than Johnson and cursing out fans. Also Moss was an issue after awhile its why we traded him and why he isn't coming back here.

No, he should be black listed. No player is bigger than the team.

Well that's all part of the evaluation process. If he cools off and BB thinks he can help the team, I'd have no problem with it. Can't rule anything out at this stage either way.

Rams claimed him. Not sure what they're thinking, but there you go.

Only team who placed a claim on him.
