THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!!!!!
- Leave things to the pros kid. You obviously don't realize big picture or as they say..."see the forrest for the trees. Navarro Bowman, didn't make it his first year, Dashon Goldson didn't make it their first year, John Taylor didn't make it their first year, Kaep didn't it make it his first year, Gore didn't make it his first year, Ray McDonald didn't make it his first year, Tarrel Brown didn't make his first year, etc etc etc.
The point is...some need time to make it to the starting lineup or to contribute, some will make a contribution or start in their first year, but one thing is for certain, if their is an opportunity your chances will increase. Some of the names I mentioned didn't have anyone blocking their way when they came in , we were dismal, yet they needed time. Last year the lineup was set, we were inn the championship.
Will Jenkins and the rest of the draft class succeed? Only time will tell. They need time to develope. EVERY GM has been biten in the a$$, even guys like Walsh and Polian. Look at how many people on the zone were on Kaep's butt about him not having it last year prior to him leading us to the SB, the Tolzein should be in front of him, that he sucked. I hear people who are making the same comments about Jenkins, when they mentioned how come JH makes glowing remarks about Lockett and not Jenkins when the two were working out with Kaep. Jenkins must suck.
(you do know that JH was not there at the workouts right?) Maybe it could be to keep Jenkins hungry while also throwing Lockette a bone. Look at how many bones JH has thrown to others who are no longer with the team...
If you look at our last years roster and how long it took for some of them to get on the field, it is the old cliche, you need to give them 3 years before you can judge how the draft class of a team went.
