You mean we can really expect the team's 1st and 2nd rounders to actually PLAY? Holy s**t.
I think what a lot of people are disappointed about is that you don't draft a 1st round pick and not play him and then make up a bunch of phony nonsense about amazing depth that a team doesn't have. I was more than disconcerted when Jenkins wasn't able to beat out Williams and an aging Moss. Other teams have their rookie WR's contributing and making plays, its shouldn't have taken this long for Jenkins to play.
You don't draft 1st rounders to sit on the bench and NOT play. In this day and age of parity, nobody is deep enough to simply let a non-QB 1st rounder sit on ice for a whole season unless that 1st rounder simply isn't all that good to begin with.
