Question about Crowell


Brave

Recommended Posts

Crowell would be right at the top of my wish list of available FAs, but I do have some questions.<br /><br />He is not a real burner is he? I don't know his 40 times, but my impression is that he has good but not great speed. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. If Westy leaves (and even if he doesn't)we are REALLY going to need some speed at WR. I don't know how comfortable I'd be with the only field-stretchers at the 3 and 4 spot.<br /><br />Any ideas what kind of contract he'll demand?

Crowell doesn't have blazing track speed, no. But, with Gardner and his pretty good deep speed -- witnessed by a better than 16 yards average per catch -- Crowell would be an accomplished guy we could use. I think, though, there is a lot of merit to people thinking Jacquez Green could come here. I also believe we will be looking seriously at Terry Glenn and Az Hakim now, though I don't want Hakim, and Glenn is a problem child.<br /><br />And don't forget the burner that is Mr. Skaggs <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" /> .

Az-Hakim is very good, probably worthy of a number one reciever. We haven't been able to see his skills because he's been sitting behind Bruce and Holt in St. Louis. <br /><br />Az-Hakim, Westbrook, and Gardner would be quite a trio. Possibly Tim Dwight as well.

I do NOT like Hakim because even if he can be a productive player, he's going to go for top dollar and I'm pretty certain we can get more bang for the buck elsewhere. Glenn, to me, is a much more accomplished player who will go for far less because he's a problem child. Hakim isn't the type of guy who will disturb me to get, but, I see bust written on him. He could be better. I just worry about a move like that. A high profile move for a less than high production player is not a combination that always works out for the team that makes it.

Why would we want Crowell? Remember two years ago when Darrell ran him down, come on do you realy want a WR who can let a 40 year old catch him? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /><br /> <br /> [ January 19, 2002: Message edited by: fuji869 ]

Art -<br /><br />Here's my 'rise to the occasion' Redskin nominee for next season. Kevin Lockett. <br /><br />I think he's going to surprise everyone - like Lang did - and be the Skins starting receiver in 2002 opposite Rod Gardner. And we'll come to learn Kevin Lockett is a very capable and competent #2 receiver.<br /><br />My gut tells me he's just the type of receiver who would excel in this offense. And I've my hunches have been pretty decent this year <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" />

Crowell- He has talent and showed it in Detroit, but his health worries me. This guy has never completed a whole season, and the injuries he sustained that put him out didn't look that devastating at all. I'd bring him in and give him a shot, but not for big money.<br /><br />Glenn- No. This guy is one big distraction. People forget even before the drama with Belichick and the Pats this season, the team already had issues with him. He doesn't keep himself in shape in the off-season, which leads to injuries and inconsistent play once the season starts. If not for his baggage, he would be a starter in D.C. But let's find someone who's more dependable.<br /><br />Hakim- He could be an explosive player and stretch the field enough to benefit our running game. Yet, has Hakim ever had a good game as a starter? He's the #3 reciever and St.Louis, and the teams they play don't gameplan to stop him. With Faulk, Warner, Bruce and Holt to worry about, I'd be surprised if Hakim didn't make some plays. He also has a little fumbling problem(i.e.last year's playoffs).<br /><br />Skaggs- Before I say this I want everyone to know I like Skaggs, I think he's a hard worker and guy who deserves a roster spot. But he is not a starter. Skaggs has speed, but he is too raw and untested to be effective for us anytime soon. Hopefully, we can keep him for a while and let him develop. I hope he does alot quicker than Derrius Thompson.<br /><br />Lockett- I agree with others who think Lockett can be successful in a Spurrier offense. He runs good routes, and has good hands. He'll have every opportunity to prove himself this year.<br /><br />I'll throw another name around for you guys, Donald Hayes. He's been a starter in Carolina for the past two seasons. His '00 season was very good when he filled in for the injured Patrick Jeffers. His numbers this season dropped because of the inconsistent play of Weinke. <br /><br />I've also heard Mushin Muhammed wants out of Carolina, and could be a possibility. Muhammed has unbelieveable hands, and always produces. Jeffers may be a possibility as well, if he's healthy.

Die Hard,<br /><br />I'm THRILLED with Lockett and his prospects in this offense, as he has good quickness and can make some things happen. He could well be a great fit as a true No. 2, but, with a Spurrier offense, we need a true No. 3 and No. 4 as well because I don't believe it's going to be two starting receivers getting much of the focus in all cases.<br /><br />Certainly if Spurrier's past is any indication, we may wind up carrying seven receivers this year just to have bodies to throw into the mix. I'm pleased with Lockett. But, we need some more people and of them, Crowell makes me smile the most.

Gamebreaker - I like Donald Hayes a lot. I'm surprised I haven't heard his name more often. Must be due to playing for the Panthers. The guy gets open and he can catch the ball. Good speed, too. I mentioned him in another thread last week.<br /><br />The Panthers have done well at WR in recent years. They have had to turn to their depth and those guys have performed well. Even Isaac Byrd has made some big plays for them. They just can't stay healthy.

Art -<br /><br />Hakim is presently the Rams #3 receiver. And he's certainly had a few spectacular plays the past couple of years as a receiver and punt returner.<br /><br />But he's not going to command a large contract. He's not going to get #1 money and there's nothing really to indicate he has the talent of a #1 receiver. <br /><br />Mulling over his stats... he's probably made a good case to be promoted to #2 on most teams. In that case... he'll cost anywhere in the neighbour of $1-2 million per season. That's not bad.<br /><br />We can revisit this issue of course in a few months <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="smile.gif" />

Die Hard, Hakim will be overbought based upon his "potential" and the fact that he's got flash on a winning team. You have to know this. Hakim will go for more than Thrash. I liken Hakim to Ricky Sanders, who was a pretty good player here, but, he wasn't that good a player when he signed a big contract and had to shoulder the load.<br /><br />If a team can sign Hakim and limit him to a complementary role at a contract that is not flashy and devoid of substance as Hakim is and has been, then I'd be happy to bring him. I just think he's going to go for big bucks and I hope if that's the case we aren't the team paying it.
