ALRIGHT! Bloom is a good player, if he can stay healthy and makes it to camp he will beat out Reid next year, no doubt in my mind

What a coincidence....Willie Reid looks terrible and we bring in a return specialist.

Bloom had some decent returns this preseason. He is intruiging.

at least he has heart and a good work ethic. Reid has not shown me one thing this year. nothing, nil, zero. There has got to be a better return man somewhere. I certainly don't think Bloom will be a Josh Cribbs or a Hester but he could atleast improve our below average special teams. Effort is half the battle in special teams and i guarantee Bloom will put forth the effort. Is that enough. I don't know, but worth a gamble.

I give Rossum a C+ grade, the plus only because he hasn't turned the ball over much. But he is better than anyone we have had since Randle El left so I cant really say it was too bad of a pick up for a 6th rounder. We do need improvement though.
