This is pure and simple straight up SULLIVAN. The man kept Lelie off the field in favor of Gilmore because Gilmore was "a better player in practice" nevermind that they only ran plays in practice one time success or failure. How can ANYONE trust what that man says anymore. If someone held a gun to my head and told me that I only get one choice as to which to let go and it was between Foerster or Sully and that if I chose wrong I would get capped? I would gladly be capped and choose Sully.
Sully has ridden the hell out of his success in Arizona. And personally I think that it was more the talent of the Players and the scheme they ran, rather than the WR coach. But hey what do I know, they're still somewhat successful and he's not. We need to send that guy a pair of cement shoes and a free bungee jump off the Gate before he screws up with Tree. I've NEVER seen a kid with solid hands be so bad at the next level. In college Tree caught most everything around him. He gets here and has drop after drop after drop. That is COACHING not the Player.
I'm so disgusted right now.
Yeah, the drops are perplexing, but not unprecidented. Remember, Jerry dropped a bunch his rookie year too. Now if Crabtree turns into half the receiver Rice was............
As for Hill, this is a small thing but served as a real "tease" for next year. Now, I know his track speed doesn't fully translate to the football field, but one catch this last game intrigued me if only because he turned and accelerated faster than I ever recall seeing him go before. Just for that split second, I got a taste of what he might be capable of should he ever get a ball at full or near full speed and actually have the opportunity to keep on running. Like it or not, our receivers just don't get that ball in full stride too often. That glimpse of a burst by Hill suggests possibilities. I sure hope he gets a fair shake next year. Same goes for Jones. I just have the feeling they can match or better Morgan's very average performance this year, plus they're faster. (It's a scary thing when Raye describes Morgan as "fast". Makes you question his eyesight, if not his judgement)
