  1. Good point Eric I guess I was expecting more out of CD after hearing all the hype leading up to the season! I know he is a talent and had a decent rookie season! I remember twice last year that on forth down we went for it and CD ran the route a couple yards short failing to get the first down. Now I realize that he was a rookie but to be a special player you make those types of plays ! But hey here comes a new season and like I stated before I hope he exceeds all expectations this year because if he does good the boys will do good!

  2. Look around the league and see how many rookies did or came close to what Ceedee did.
    Not to mention he had 4 different QBs, can you imagine what if he had D4k the entire season! I hope you wasn’t looking for Randy Moss year 1.

  3. Sure hope ole CD breaks out and has the season and career that everybody is projecting that he will have! I thought last year he did a fair job but nothing like I was expecting after all the accolades leading up to the start of the season! I guess I’m of the opinion that : Let’s go ball then we can brag about our accomplishments!
