Boy I swear fans have the least amount of patience than anybody on earth. The guy can return kicks and Punts (I think), while still developing as a receiver and has caught pretty much whatever he has got his hands on. He is probably one of the top 5 fastest players in the league and costs us almost nothing. And what do folks want to do? CUT HIM, HE IS A BUM.
Maybe if the offense could stay on the field for more than 3 downs at a time, he might have a had better chance of developing. Personally I would like to see what he can bring with some COACHING, and a better more accurate QB (Matt Flynn anyone?) or maybe Sanchez shocks the world and actually responds to Garcia, Lee and Marty and becomes the QB he is capable of being. (NOT holding my breath but stranger things have happened...)
Gates as our 4 or 5 receiver is the least of our problems..... Now he will have to compete for a job like everyone else, and if given a fair shot I think he will win a roster spot but that has yet to be seen. What I don't get is the rash to dump the guy; kind of reminds me of all the BILAL POWELL SUCKS posts of a year ago.
CAN WE PLEASE GIVE OUR YOUNG PLAYERS WITH TALENT A CHANCE TO PLAY AND DEVELOP?
