    Anyone still want to complain about the salas and pettis picks?

    Salas had 8 or 9 catches today, including a nice run after catch and a couple of really tough grabs in traffic. Nice punt return for pettis, who has also shown flashes. Both of these guys were badly hurt by the lack of OTA and other offseason activities. Both will do fine over time in my view. Our need for a #1 is so blatant its ridiculous. DX makes a nice catch here and there and then a HUGE drop. I dont think very much of Gibson. Marginal guy, nice for depth but i dont see it as a starter and certainly not as a #1.

    I would have to say Salas redeemed himself nicely this afternoon. And I like that someone taught Pettis the fair catch signal too.

    if they continue on this path then I would say sure they were good picks and they are a bright spot today,hopefully they continue to improve because Sam really needs go to guys.

    I agree. They both showed me a lot today. Salas shook off the drops and getting benched, Pettis shook off the punt return fears. No easy task for either. Now they need to do it on a consistent basis.

    I always knew these were high value picks, and today it showed. I thought it was common knowledge that it's rare for young rookies to come into the NFL without making dumb mistakes.

    Unless you're a Marshall Faulk of course.

    These guys have played well, and certainly earned their spot on the roster. But that need for a number 1 is evident. If this doesn't get sorted next year, or a proper effort isn't made, Devaney is going to have some kind of fan led coup attempt to deal with!
