Further, this notion that a player isn't getting a chance or seeing playing time, etc. as if there isn't a reason is mind boggling to me.

Reps, postions, "chances" are earned in practice. If you are playing well, you see the field.

This notion that a player should play 'just because' is something else.

See, this would be fine logic but it really doesn't apply to last year. Do you not recall that Reece had to wait for McFadden and Goodson getting hurt before he got a role on offense? Myers was actually producing so if its no broke, why fix it? I already said Ausberry's niche is as a receiver and STer, With Myers playing well as a receiver and Gordon's blocking ability I don't see what's so hard to understand. There wasn't room for him last year other than to force him in 'just because'. Which I agree, would be idiotic.

I don't know who is so enamored with Ausberry, but if you don't see whats to like about him then: LOL.

But he's not even a good ST player? Gordon is, but Ausberry? What's he done on STs?

I can see why some find potential in him as a converted WR, but he's certainly shown very little and again the fact the staff drafted 2 TEs whatever they are seeing in practice must not be enough either.

Ausberry makes tackles on ST too. Its splitting hairs at that point. All I know is that I'd be more willing to give Ausberry a chance because of his receiving potential than Gordon because blocking TEs are a dime a dozen.

Donald Penn watched practice tape of Mack getting inches from ground & beating him for sack, then looked at Tice. Tice: Ive got nothing.
