Agree. Might already be the 3rd and 4th best players on the team. If Hooker forces turnovers, it's him.
Hopefully they just play better as a unit, and I think they will. How could they not? Can't get any worse.
Check him out in the receiving game, Krunk. Return game looks good, too.
While watching his receiving skills, I remembered all the balls bouncing off Frank's chest over the past two years. I think he could help.
Ballard gave up on a 3rd rounder before his rookie season. When it comes to Green, he re-signed Butler, and drafted Hooker. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about our 2nd rounder from last season, I don't know what would.
I realize you were a Grigson supporter, but some friendly advice - cut your losses. Move on.
One area, one draft at a time.
Ballard said, had Hooker not fallen, he was looking at offensive players. Lamp, I'm sure.
I can't imagine he loves Castanzo or this O-line, but only so many picks. Give it a few years.
The guy who made that questionable decision is out of the league. Ballard has nothing invested in Green, and expecting Ballard to show years of patience with a Grigson project player, given everything I think I know about Ballard, seems like pure fantasy to me.
Asked what he wants from draftees/prospects, Ballard said a unique skill set - a player who brings something the team doesn't have. That explains Crossan and the big WRs. Based on the film and the need for such a skill set, I would think Crossan has an excellent chance, especially if he shows something in the return game.
