Excellent point and my feelings exactly

Bingo.....at least the part about Morey. Thats the reason Quinc got cut. there was just too much competition there and they wanted the special teams help.....Otherwise I think the Staley decision is insane. I would have have even kept Frazier at linebacker or Quincy or even Omar...

Hope Duce will prove us all wrong....

Morgan is definately a good returner, but the coaches might have thought that Holmes and/or Reid can be even better returners. We can't hardly use a roster spot for a backup returner.

I liked Q, but he did not have the best hands. I still see him against the pats last year, right before halftime, Ben hits him in full stride, right between the 1`s on his jersey, and he drops the ball. This catch was the difference we would have alot better chance of winning that game

I agree BUT, I did like his straight forward returning, not much east and west just straight up field and hope the hole developed

just think! the next time Q-bert plays the steelers... if he scores a touchdown... you have the opportunity to watch him act like a fool as he dances around pointing his finger at the symbol on his helmet!

And I believe you will from Mr. Reid. Even though he was referring to Willie Parker at the time.........in the words of Max Starks...."That boy is extra fast!".

His acceleration is just as impressing as his speed.
