I do think Resse is a great GM and he drafted the guy and wanted him. Wasn't there something about how they almost drafted him in the 1st round?
    I give him more than this week to "prove" everyone wrong. And who is everyone BTW???
    A rookie deserves more than 5 games to show what he has or doesnt have.....no????

    Actually, Eli hinted at it as well.

    He will likely get his entire rookie contract to show he belongs.

I just think that this type of approach (going public with criticism) can get out of control easily and not help the team one bit. I don't disagree one iota with what Cruz is saying.
    On a positive note we should see fewer WTF is Randle threads.

If he's trying to motivate Randle he should learn diplomacy like Eli. Sorry but you don't run off to reporters criticizing your own team mates.
    Cruz and Eli said the same thing in different ways. Bessides they were asked. The didnt bring it up.
    Cruz had to work hard to get where he is at and he only wants the same for Randle.

    Yeah, shark bait for the circling bored reporters. What's funny about this thread is it starts with what the reporters quote (or misquote/misconstrue) as gospel, then goes from questionable assumptions.

    Learning this offense vs. learning a simpler offense is the difference between a receiver coming on strong early in the season vs. late in the season.

    The fact that Randle may be forced into the lineup before he is ready isn't reason to a) trash him, b) give up on him or c) take credit for if/when he has a good game on Sunday.

    It continues to amaze at how gullible people are when it comes to reading the likes of the Post or Daily News controversy stirring reporting manure...or listening to more genius out of Cris Collinsworth, with his drive by analysis.

    I'm not thrilled about it being out in public either. My point, though, is there are always things going on behind the scene we either don't know or don't understand.

    Wait RF...Im confused......don't the fans know every aspect of what goes on both in the locker room and in the coaches/front office's heads?
