Default If Lelie is traded, do you consider him a bust?

Just curious here, but if Ashley Lelie is traded to wherever, do we call him a bust or not?

I personally think he is fine, he just needs to be more consistant in the short game.

Busts don't have thousand yard seasons.

Well, the fact is YPC doesn't convert third and short, and that is what keeps drives alive. Rod Smith keeps drives alive...TD kept drives alive...MA keeps drives alive...even the Putz. It's nice to see the occasional first down bomb to Lelie, but whatever.

All I know is he's going into his final year and unless we get him redone, I think he's on the block. I simply haven't heard many ringing endorsements, but a new deal is possible....the plot thickens...

stats don't mean ****, and neither have a Pro Bowl appearance. so to Bob they are basically the same receiver.

Master of deflection!

Anyway, like Kennison, 3 years is way too soon to call any WR a bust, especially when that WR had over 1,000 yards and 7 TDs in his third year.

Maybe Ashley will be a late bloomer like Eddie.

Lelie just needs an f-ing qB who has long ball accuracy - the guy is a streak and one hell of a WR.

I'm not deflecting anything, wad gobbler. Just pointing out that you don't have much room to call anyone's receivers a bust when you've got a guy on your squad who's played for half the teams in the league and took 9 years to get a 1000 yard season after being a 1st round pick.

Seeing as he's already led the league in YPC twice and had a 1000 yard season in just 3 years in the league, I don't see how anyone can possibly call him a bust.

I didn't call him a bust. I think you guys should hold onto Lelie, because even if you get T.O. you're going to have some old-ass WRs without Lelie.

He's not a bust, but he also didn't fit this system. He also had a QB who under threw him a dozen times.
