I dont remember Pinkston getting 1100 yards last season? Yes, Lelie's routes up to this point in his career has been somewhat limited, but unlike Pinkston, there is a difference between being able to come through on those routes just a few times and coming through on those routes a whole bunch of times. In addition, Lelie has outperformed Porter in terms of total production (yards) even when you take into account Porter has had success at a more diverse variety of routes. Plus, Porter has had an extra year of experience. In terms of catches and PIs, Lelie got his team 1300 yards this year. Thats pretty good id say for a 3rd year pro even if his routes were somewhat limited. He outproduced your boy by a couple hundred yards. Im not sure what you want me to tell you, Bill.
