Funny how Dallas Baker went from whipping boy to key part of the receiver rotation in one off season.

Anyway....speed is vastly overrated. Jerry Rice wasn't fast, he was smart and ran great routes. If you have good hands and can run good routes, you can play receiver at any level.

Nice find on the article. Good read.

As for Dallas Baker.....I always thought he was the new Walter Young.

Why?

The guy can play. Look at his college stats.

Unless it's because he's white and that's a really bad joke.

You're right!

Jerry's specialty was separation/breakaway speed. DB's had no problem covering Jerry, until the ball was in the air. When the ball touched Jerry's hands he was 2 - 3 yards clear, simply amazing to watch.

Now if only we can find another player like Rice, yeah right.

It's about burst and quickness. Always has been and always will be.

TO isn't especially fast. Hines Ward isn't especially fast.

Pure speed is a plus on special teams, but other than that you want smart disciplined players. That's why Wes Welker is so freaking good.

Hey - more power to Grisham for wanting to work hard to try to make the team. He knows up front that he's a longshot but he's going to keep on keepin' on. Good for him.
