I've been able to go back and watch a few of his games this year.....he's really good...and the fact that almost must have play went in his direction...speak volumes about the confidence they had in him...

Also, every time he made a play it seemed as if everyone would surround him and tap his helmet and show th i s guy love. Definitely a loved teammate. Very excited about him and I agree he was very difficult to press.

I was sceptical of Idzik during free agency, but now I'm beginning to see the big picture, he's not building a team to win now, he's building a team to dominate later, and dominate for a long time.  Hopefully Geno's our franchise QB so it wouldn't have to be much later, but if Geno is our guy this team will finally get it done in 2 to 3 years time, if Geno's not, then hopefully we can find that guy soon, obviously that's not the scenerio I want, because this would mean starting over again, Geno's got the tools, hopefully during his offseason he worked on the issues he had last year.

very excited about this guy, if he can catch the ball consistently and run good routes, he can scare defenses silly with his speed

Idzik is just too cautious.  He should have signed all of this rookie class yesterday.

@Pablo Bruno Geno will have better talent to work with, Vick should only replace Geno if he wins the starting job outright, if it's close Geno should start to see if he's the franchise QB, Taj on the other hand could be Russell Wilson in disguise, you never know, let them play and see who sticks

yeah...Saunders is gonna be really exciting.......


He's an ultra fast slot WR with ball skills who can also play on the outside and contribute as a punt returner


Guys don't realize on this blog that Saunders is not an easy guy to press at the line of scrimmage.  It isn't as easy as some might suggest to take him out of a play. He is Desean jackson like and Jackson isn't easy to press either. The reason this is so is because Saunders makes incredibly quick cuts and has a very quick first step. There is also not much of him to grab on to (especially when he gets off the line so quickly). Saunders will surprise some people on this blog...The guy is very very elusive......not so easy for a bigger DB to grab on to
