Default Whats going on with Fred Gibson

Last I heard he was slipping off of the map. Any news on this kid. I like his potential especially with Wilson dropping down.

You know I hope he is just a late bloomer. He wasn`t the Number 1 reciever on his college team. He is really skinny it seems. This one may be a little iffy.

The Steelers knew he'd be a project so they're prepared to work w/ him. They also knew he wouldnt last past the 4th round so we grabbed him..

He'll make the team. They cut Cobb and Young to make room for him. He's skinny, but he can bulk up. The block he threw in the Eagles game is enough reason to keep him.

It's all upside here...

This has totally nothing to do with his ability... but stick a number in the 80s on him... this whole WRs with 11, 14, 18, 19s... I'm not feeling it.

Tough choice: Rasby (Best Blocker), Tuman, Kranchick (Best receiver).

I think Jerame Tuman might be the odd man out here. Rasby is a little older, though, so who knows?

I was just making a bit of fun about this growing trend... Randy Moss, Jerry Rice, etc. No need to break the roster out on me. Since you did, here are the numbers off that list that I think should be available... if I was Cowher mind you. 81, 84, 87, and possibly 89.
