However, something tells me this story will win out, especially with Rod lined up across from him and being such a full-on team leader.
He had the sack to call Deltha ONeal out, so whipping a talented young WR into shape shouldn’t be too hard.
Dont listen to that absolute crap from a lelie hater about him doggin' it. My brother was at the first three morning and afternoon practices and he watched lelie closely and said he looked fine and very consistent. He also remarked that Ash has noticably bigger guns this year which you can see in one of the OF1 camp photos where he is on one knee in between Maurice and another Bronco yucking it up. Ash's triceps are WAY bigger than last year.
If he stays healthy, which he's been very good at doing the first three years, he's going to have an all world season.
I keep harping on what June Jones said when we drafted Lelie, Jones said: After
three years in the league he'll make everyone forget about all the other 2002 WR class.
He's about to do just that and more!
