He apparently doesnt want to do much more than return kicks....apparently is not prompt to meetings and stuff like that...Also Im sure that Mike Shanahan didnt have good things to say about Mathis to Kubiak when he was at the probowl and was late to a function there as well...
Basically he does not seem to want to improve on his WR skills and seems happy to be a dynamic KR....Id like to see him work hard on his routes and his hands because I think he'd be a bigtime threat....his rookie year he had a couple really big plays...But until he shows that he wants it as bad as Kevin Walter/Jacoby Jones...then he wont start..
he was drafted to be an impact WR, and kubiak would want him to be more from the simple standpoint that it's better to have one player that can perform multiple tasks than specialists...
If he doesn't perform in practice then he can't play WR in games. No one will argue with you that it is a good thing to have versatile players but you can't make them better if they don't work at it.
From the pro-bowl incident to what I've heard about him he's lazy and will probably be nothing more than a KR,... until he does bad and gets released which happens when you are a one dimensional player.
