What i remember is Jerry and Idiot Fat Dork drafting Anthony Spencer within weeks of Carpenter being the best Defensive Player on the field in the Seattle Playoff loss. I also remember fans here celebrating. I remember the celebration of Roy Williams (both of them).
But my opinion is, and always has been, Carp was a 4-3 SOLB. That has not changed. I judge based on the field, not based on how sexy they look in spandex shorts running wind sprints or the occasional big play which masks the 15 other horrid plays.
So Dez is a talent, no doubt, but not a football player of any note IMHO. Produce, every quarter of every game. Then talk.
Not a football player of any note? You serious?
He's not having as great of a year as we all expected, but he's not a scrub at all. That's just being unfair. You're being too extreme in your criticism. Way too extreme.
Even Jerry Rice didn't produce every quarter of every game. That's ridiculous.
Whoa... talk about overreaction here. LOL. I guess LL and I will stay in the minority that Dez is a special player. I'll remember this. Especially with Metsox and Bob.
I love Dez's potential. The entire Dez is a capable #1 right now or that he renders Miles excess and trade-bait was the only points I was attacking. He's without a doubt going to be a special player but aside from a dynamic threat with the ball he needs work. As he should he's young. Give him 5 years and he will be double the player Miles is. Just pointing out that the entire love-fest had gotten out of hand when it turned from his massive potential to anointing him the best WR on the team. Hopefully next year he'll take over being the 2nd best WR on the team from Laurent. :)
There is definitely some overreaction of calling him a bust, mediocre, etc. That flat out isn't true. He's young and needs work but he's got pro-bowl written all over him.
As for the Cards... STOP THE RUN. If you stop the run we will have a lot of shots at turnovers. Rob Ryan PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE double Fitz on every play. Do not leave our corners on an island with him.

I have no clue what Bortles is all about. Has a funny name though. Sounds like a Pokemon.
Making sure that Skelton doesn't have enough time to lob one up to Fitz. I don't care who you are, Fitzgerald could catch anything on anybody. Skelton may suck, but that doesn't matter when he could pull a Madden style lame duck to a guy that'll catch anything.
On offense they just have to keep doing what they're doing. Let Murray be a factor while Romo spreads it out and moves them down the field. I don't think they need Dez on punt returns. Just let him do work against Peterson.
