Opinion is one thing but I HOPE the guy makes the team. I don't know if he will ever be wirth a damn but I AM PULLING for him!
I don't think any fans are _not_ pulling for him. It's just that how long
to you hold on to hope when a player has shown NOTHING after how
many years? Drafted in 2008. We are headed into 2011 and he hasn't done
a gad dang thing.

Players drafted after Sweed (who we could have grabbed)

54 Jason Jones Titans DE Eastern Michigan
24 55 Ray Rice Ravens RB Rutgers
3 1 64 Kevin Smith Lions RB Central Florida
6 69 Jacob Hester Chargers RB Louisiana State
10 73 Jamaal Charles Chiefs RB Texas
11 74 Dan Connor Panthers LB Penn State
18 81 Early Doucet Cardinals WR Louisiana State
20 83 Jeremy Zuttah Buccaneers G Rutgers
26 89 Steve Slaton Texans RB West Virginia
28 91 Jermichael Finley Packers TE Texas
29 92 Cliff Avril Lions DE Purdue
32 95 Mario Manningham Giants WR Michigan
34 97 Andre Caldwell

Oh, and after we drafted Sweed, they made the genius pick of Bruce
Davis. Brilliant.
