    Todd Blythe like?

    That catch that Jennert had that was ruled out of bounds was Blythe like. I think he will be pretty good for us. Also the roster lists him at 6 foot 6 i walked by him in walmart and he looked a little more like 6'8 to me. And did anyone see #38 trenton Bledsoe... 5'5 146 and crazy quick.

    I play basketball at the rec with Trent once in a while and he wears you out by just running around in circles...

    not very good at basketball, but he sure is fast.

    Re: Todd Blythe like?

    I did not get to attend the spring game. Does Jennert block down field? Not blocking has to be a major factor in Blythe not playing in the NFL.

    Jennert seems quicker on the edges. Like he could make you miss, whereas Blythe couldn't ever do that.

    Re: Todd Blythe like?

    Jennert looked a little quicker to me than Blythe, but he has a little ways to go in terms of size and strength. He's a little skinnier, a little faster, but has that same excellent body control and vertical.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    He's not afraid of contact, whether he can sustain his blocks, I would have to watch more film. But, he definitely made the initial block, and kept going.

    I have been more excited about Jennert than Blanton because I think he is a different twist to WR that we don't already have.

    I agree. Blanton looks to be good, but very similar to Reynolds. Jennert is definitely a change of pace at the position. He looks like he's better equipped than any of the guys we have to go up for a jump ball, and be a force inside the 20, as opposed to a speedster who will take a regular pitch and catch a long ways. It's good to see a range of skills in our receiving corps.

    I would have liked to see some more deep balls and jump balls on saturday, just to see how well these guy can get after them.

    Yes, yes you are. You are 6'5", white, and from Indianola. You're much more Todd Blythe-like than I am and probably almost everyone who posts here.

    Not sure if I take being Todd Blythe-like as a good thing or not, but good to know.

    Well in this case as with most others, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We are what we are.

    I graduated a long time after 1986.
