    Nice 1,000th post.

    I really liked Butler, and I hope he develops. I would have given this team more credit if they'd drafted Butler over Metcalf and it didn't work out. It was just poor roster management at the time.

    I'm gonna pick out Darren Sproles as an example, but you don't draft two more undersized scatbacks if you have him, unless you really have a plan to get them on the field. We drafted Isabella to play a role on our team that was already filled x2.

    My complaint is as it always will be and has been.

    Why the undersized, small school guy over a larger player who plays against grade A talent?

    Isabella may prove us all wrong, and I hope he does.

    Still it is a glaring and consistent error this GM and organization commits year after year.

    Yup... If Isabela turns into a good WR moving forward this thread won’t age well.

    We have to remember there was no way they were going to start Kyler with rookie wr’s. All the receivers mentioned above were playing with a veteran qb and receiving corp.

    We had Fitz, Kirk who was a second year receiver coming off injury and also learning a new system.

    Let’s see who if anybody steps up next year before we write everybody off.

    Well the Patriots took Harry when they could of had Metcalf. They are bums too.

    Hoping one or multiple guys steps up is just fine... it doesn't make me any less unhappy that we're going to talk about drafting a #1 receiver for the next few months to do exactly what multiple guys behind Isabella have already proven to be pretty capable of.

    DK Metcalf reminds me of David Boston, not sure if that's the case, but something doesn't look quite right when you look at the dudes size...Good player tho..

    If he ends up having a better career than Metcalf you are right, this take won’t age well.

    So far after a full season and a playoff game (for D.K. of course), Metcalf is off to one hell of a head start in that race!

    The FO needs to keep their eye on Quartney Davis. Like McLaurin, I think he’s going in the 3rd round & is going to be a star.

    I just want to be clear....

    I'm rooting like heck for Andy and Butler (KJ as well)

    I truly hope they become really good. It just hurts that I'm in the "hope" stage. Them playing a full year making plays/mistakes I would have been ok with. In fact probably likely wouldn't get too up about what other rookies are doing cause at least ours were learning on the job.

    Lets hope they can take the nexts to improve next year.

    Only hope is that one of the three WRs makes a step up. I think Butler has the best chance based on size and physicality, but he needs to be healthy. Isabella looks like a one-trick pony with his go routes. KeeSean likely hit his ceiling in training camp.
