I'll say I didn't know he was going to be covered by a rookie all night but that's no excuse. I doubted he'd be productive and he was highly productive.

Congrats!

Yeah I see alot of people refusing to eat a little crow. I for one would like everyone to know that I don't need anyone to call me out for being wrong. I'm happy to call myself out.

Didn't shut me up. I loved him in preseason and I believed he could have a good season if given the chance.

I'd really love to see Randle produce as well now.

I am here to eat my crow as well. I stumped for him to be released this year as a wasted project. I guess that's why I'm not the GM :-)

I dont know. He looks slow to me. I also think a lot of that is Eli and a little was a rookie corner. Is he a good enough guy for number 4? yeah. Also looked like the coverage was rolled to Cruz last night also

Me either. Barden was the one I voted for in the poll. Glad we have him to fall back on when needed.

He's not a very fast guy, although his flat out speed is much better than his acceleration.

I think going forward you'll see him used much the way we would use a TE in the pattern (lots of seam stuff and short curls).

If Barden is covered by rookie corners every week he's gonna set the league on fire.

He gets props because he was able to get open and he was able to go up and compete for the ball which are two things he hadn't shown in the past.

I definately think the guy will have his plays but seriously if a defense game plans to stop Barden and we dont have another threat, there gona get up on him and shut him right down. My opinion

I'm surprised that therapists don't prescribe crow as an anti-depressant... it's working GREAT for me today...

I disagree, I think he is our new #3 for now. DHixon can go back to being a beast returner. Barden does lack explosiveness and he will never be able to totallyseparate himself from the better defenders but he showed good to excellent hands at times and he even had a quick move for great YAC!!!

All hail the Pharaoh.......RAMSES!!!!

I thought on the fade, he could have done a way better job of getting in position to use his size and make a play for the ball and not lean back and wait for it like he did. This is the kind of thing Im not sure he has to turn the corner.

Not surprised at all because I never stopped believing. The program is set up to the point it is nearly impossible to fail. The organization shows incredible patience in development terms allowing the prospect time to mature not to mention gain confidence. Brown, Beatty, Boothe and Barden(all B's) are prime examples. Even though Prince pisses me off he will be no different.
