    Re: Keenan Burton

    We'll see. He shows flashes, that's for sure.

    Avery's certainly been disappointing. I'd like him to show us why he was the first WR picked in last year's draft.

    As for Gibson, he was a nonfactor, which is discouraging, mainly because of Spoon showing how good he can be with the Eagles on Monday Night. I listened to most of the game and the broadcast never really mentioned him even being in the line up. I think he was thrown to once, couldn't see the play so I don't know if it was Bulger's throw or him dropping it. Anyways, I'm interested to see how many plays he was in on.

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and maybe he needs more time adjusting to the new (although similar) system.

    It was bulgers throw, it was far and away behind him and he had to leap back to try to catch it. They pulled him after that throw.

    Heck yeah!

    He did make some awesome catches out there today! I'm a huge fan of Burton and he's been improving all season. Regardless it was the Lions D but still he did look good on those catches!

    And your right, no way he'll be getting cut. I'm sick of the haters saying that he's not "NFL Material", thats a load of garbage. Keenan is great and has the potential to be even better, can't wait to see this kid grow here through his career.

    I personally didn't see him in the game untill the 4th qtr. I think he may have been in on 2, maybe 3 plays that I saw him.

    Re: Keenan Burton

    I agree. The kid needs to get a touchdown. Once he gets one this year, he's going to get a ton of confidence back.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    Re: Keenan Burton

    Not to take anything away from him because he was big part of this win.Number 1 receiver? That's pushing it. He played well in the first half, but he kind of tailed off. He has been playing at this level the past couple games. In this current group with Avery not playing well he has stepped up

    my post was a bit tongue in cheek(just a bit mind you).. it was more a response to the thread last week that he would be cut...

    he was cut alright..

    cut and pasted into the #1 receiver spot sunday... if only for a day.. but there will be more... imho..

    I think that's the key. The kid has good hands, is a possession type receiver and has the confidence of the QB. How can anyone discount his production? He is a chain mover, that's what the Rams need.

    Re: Keenan Burton

    Burton has certainly been a more reliable target for Bulger/Boller than Avery has. Burton has been targeted just as much as Avery, but has fewer drops, a higher catch percentage, and a higher percentage of his receptions go for first downs.

    But #1 receiver? Let me just say this - if Keenan Burton is now this team's #1 receiver, it only highlights the very significant issues this team has at wide receiver, and their enormous need for a TRUE top guy.

    In an ideal scenario, I think Burton would be this team's #4 receiver, behind an as-yet-to-be-acquired #1, Robinson as the #2, and Avery as the #3 (unless he starts showing more consistency and becomes more reliable).

    I think he meant number 1 receiver at the moment, which, with Avery's inconsistency, Burton definitely could be. However i agree with you assessment that Burton should really be no more than the number three possibly the number 4. I do see him as a Ricky Proehl type in thr future.

    Gah, for the millionth time, Burton is NOT a "possession type" receiver. He would likely been a late 1st rounder/2nd round pick had he not had an injury riddled senior season at Kentucky. Go look at his films on youtube. Burton has tremendous talent, just needs to put more time in the filmroom to master the WCO ...

    See the first catch he made against the Lions with the spin out for big YAC. Not the type of play a "possession" receiver makes ...

    He's made that exact play three times this year ...

    He's in the poor man's Isaac Bruce mold. He will be a good player here. On pace for 50-60 grabs ....
