the coaches any confidence that he is worth having on the field and
throwing balls his way. You act as if Johnson got the opportunity
and Sweed did not. That is total horse shit. True, Sweed got hurt
last year and hence had zero opportunity. But he sure had the chances
before that, and he dropped the ball nearly every time he was given a
chance to make a play. Johnson had a horrid drop (thank God) and
lost the game for the Bills, but he put up over 1,000 yards and 10 TDs
last year. Sweed has never put up jack shit. Johnson is an upcoming
star in this league. Sweed will likely not even be in the league by kick
off this season.
If you think johnson didn't have a better opportunity of getting more balls thrown his way after T.O left than maybe you should try and remember that we had 2 SB MVP's ahead of sweed as well as our new #1 wallace competing with him. Sweed did get his opportunity when ward got hurt in the AFCG (see my OP) and he dropped the ball. He should look to johnson for comfort (my original point which you somehow managed to argue into something else) as johnson is also a very talented receiver who made a huge drop and will likely bounce back. (which you agree)
do we really need to do this again?
