As noted before, my niche when it comes to football is the receiver position. I know it pretty well. I know what qualities make a good player at the position. This guy – Donnie Avery – as those qualities. So when I heard he was participating in practice today, I was glad; this dude can finally showcase what he is all about!
There have been many people – who are not really qualified, by the way – that have written Avery off. That is downright ridiculous! In his two seasons played (he was on IR last year), Avery averaged over 12 yards per catch ( 12.7 & 12.5). Those are pretty good numbers considering the fact that:
A) He was the 3rd receiver his rookie year
B) He had abominable QB play in his 2nd year
I’m a huge Donnie Avery supporter and I am glad he is now healthy enough to participate in team activities and display his assets. Plus, the knee injury has not affected his sub 4.3 40- speed!
