So if a player doesn't succeed in his first year he is a flop?
So Damien Harris was a flop? And then whey they succeed you unflop them and they are a success? The sensible position i believe is perhaps more nuanced than flop or not and each player should be looked at on their own merits and context. They might believe that Asiasi might need more time to develop or that he might have potential to be a decent squad player but maybe not a pro bowler. For me flop or not after 1 year is far too premature and black and white.
You are becoming the equivalent of Buzzfeed with just posting unmitigated crappy threads every day. And this might be the dumbest yet.
Maybe slow it down for a for a few weeks and think a bit more before abusing that create thread button.
Quality over quantity and all that jazz.
I wont even get into the TE debate because it has been had dozens of times and nothing has changed. Just keep in mind you are talking abo
Mr Potato Head...Mr Potahto Head...
The potential of two 3rd rounders went form potential starters to potential #3 TE's in the space of a year, based on the judgement of coaches and staff.
Good point although BB himself pointed out that TEs have more to absorb in their rookie years than most positions and it can often mean they won't contribute much in their rookie years. Add in no preseason, disrupted practices and both having to deal with injuries and it's easy to see why they perhaps didn't contribute much in their rookie years. The fact that BB went out and bought he two best players at the position only suggest that he believes that Keene and Alasi aren't at that level at the moment which would be surprising if they were tbh. But to call two third rounders flops because of it is a bit harsh. At this stage both players could go on to have half decent NFL careers without ever reaching the level of Jonnu or Henry and that wouldn't necessarily mean they are flops.Sometimes he is, sometimes he's not.
You're now trying to argue what was essentially a redshirt season behind a sufficient depth chart versus a wasted season despite a horrendous depth chart. Huge difference.
But what exactly has ANY of those 2020 TEs done?? Even the ones (Trautman, Bryant, Kmet etc) considered better than Asiasi...nothing at all. Can’t effectively call any of them better at this point, so this is all still a moot point.
