    Default B.J. Cunningham Update

    Looks like a bunch of nothing, but figured I would post it here anyway:

    WR B.J. Cunningham reportedly "performed at a high level the rest of the way" in offseason practices.

    Hmmm, goes against everything that our locals were reporting ya know, I'm hoping this kid just had to go thru some adjustment phases, dropping balls was not part of his repertoire in college, it shouldn't be in the pros..

    The locals didn't really say much about BJ Cunningham other than the first few practices

    Yep, Not buying it. Only thing I read was that he was dropping passes. Never much more than that.

    The report that he was dropping passes or that he played better?

    A report from Russ Lande updating the public about one of 'his' guys, which acknowledges reports that we've all heard (Cunningham struggling) and then brings out something nobody has heard (that he performed at a "high level" the rest of the way). Let me put it this way, he was going to find a way to write something positive about B.J. Cunningham.

    He could have performed high in another way.

    Don't shoot the messenger... I just saw this and thought I would pass it along. It sounds like Rotoworld took it out of context in the grand scheme of things then.

    No, not your fault, and not rotoworld's fault either. I don't think they took anything out of context. But I know for a fact Russ Lande wasn't at any of those practices so immediately I have to question where he got his info from that B.J. Cunningham "performed at a high level" after his initial couple of days of failure. That is not something we've seen even hinted at elsewhere and I wonder if one of the reporters didn't just tell Lande that Cunningham struggled at first but then leveled out, and Lande took a bit of artistic license with that and said "performed at a high level".

    No worries, those who don't like his game will disregard the report, those who do will take it as a positive.

    When the pads come on OTA darlings tend to disappear and real players step up.

    Couldn't agree more. Best part is we have Hard Knocks to see bits and pieces for ourselves.

    I am so freaking happy that we get to see the team during Hard Knocks!!! I think it is exactly what I need to be awoken once again as a fan. I have been a die hard since I was born, but these last couple years have been tough. I went for feeling absolutely crushed and upset after every loss to just feeling like "eh it happens. At least we will get a better draft pick." I am so tired of that damn mentality. I want to expect to win each game again and while that might not happen for a year or two; I think this show will carry me over until then.

    I don't really see Cunningham making the final roster. Assuming the Dolphins keep five receivers on the final roster, it would appear at this time that the three receivers who are most likely to be on the finale roster are Hartline, Bess, and Naanee. That leaves Cunningham battling Ochocinco, Gates, Fuller, Hogan, Matthews, Moore, Pruitt, and Wallace for the two remaining spots on the roster.

    I don't expect Ochocinco to make the final roster since I think he has lost more then one step and he just isn't the receiver he was a few years ago. I also would be surprised to see Gates make the roster this season. I think the final two spot will come down to Moore, Pruitt, or Wallace. Cunningham might be offered a position on the practice squad if he shows some promise in the preseason, but if he continues to drop passes, I expect him to be cut well before the final roster is set.

    I don't ever remember thinking Orande Gadsden would make the roster either. Let us all wait and see when the pads go on and training camp begins full force.

    To be fair I don't care how guys "perform" in camp. Even rookies. I care that they are starting to understand the system and where they should be on the field, so forth. He will get at least a couple preseason games to show what he can do on the field.
    The species: Boshosaurus rex (rex meaning "king" in Latin). The B. rex lived throughout what is now western North America, which then was an island continent named Laramidia. In the year 1984 scientists were able to use the DNA of the B.Rex to create a human dinosaur hybrid. He would be named Christopher Wesson Bosh. .

    Just makes me want to watch Hard Knocks even more. When does it air? Channel; NFL? Need to think about setting the DVR so I don't miss any.
