good thoughts as always buck. i am just thinking when our combined catches for wideouts in three games , excluding boldin and vernon, amounts to something like 10 or so,, we would have nothing to lose by putting jon in. as you said, maybe he is dogging it and has not deserved the chance to start. jenkins sucks to and what is frightening, if your theory is true,, the chiefs could have gotten the best part of that deal
But, I never said anything about Baldwin dogging it. We do not know how he has been doing. The media reports, what few of them we have seen, have been positive.
My theory, if I have a theory, is only that the team could be taking a slow cautious approach with Baldwin--making sure that the head problems have been left behind.
This approach does not mean that Baldwin will not turn out to be a good receiver for the team.
We are only in the fourth week of the season. We can not make any rational judgments about Baldwin at this point.
The problem seems to be that a slow cautious approach, which may the correct way of dealing with Baldwin, does little to alleviate the immediate need the team has for more production from wide receivers. Smile
