[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Titus Adams over Ron Brace = Ron Brace is BUST : but he did play,and got a a fair evaluation of his true failures.if brady didnt trust him then he must not had been good enough.to just come out and say a player is a bust just several months in the NFL with out playing a full game is not a well educated guess.

I never said Brace was a Bust and I said the guy was off in calling Brace a Bust at this point. I myself said it is open for wondering what is going on with Brace though, that is perfectly normal to wonder or question. A few people said he's been injured even though I have yet to see him on the "official" injury report that I can recall but I certainly trust what others have posted about it.
MY point about the comment the other gentleman made was about Jackson that he came back at you with after you tried to crucify him by explaining that Brace hasn't had an opportunity to play much yet and could not be called a bust. I agree with that/you.
BUT Jackson only started ONE game as receiver. He played VERY sparingly a few times in a couple other games as a "receiver". Jackson was designated to primarily special teams only that year. The game he started was against the Jets I believe, the 2nd game of the year. He had 2 receptions for 40 + yards with a long of 24 and 1 TD. They never really used him much after that performance. He obviously didn't do what they wanted or make the correct sight adjustments they wanted. That was 2006 when Reche Caldwell caught almost 70 passes and could have used Jackson. His point was that the Team and , in my opinion Brady, made up their minds on him prior to any real extensive game time experience. ...and by the way I think that is perfectly logical. If you have ever coached any sport at any level you know you make your player evaluations in practices. Games will often reaffirm or cause you to revaluate but most often a guy is what or who he is in on the practice field, in the film room, in the weight room, etc because that's where you see him perform day in and day out.
Again, while i think the guy is off about jumping to the bust conclusion. I think it is safe to say that IF Brace is healthy that he simply is not showing himself to the coaches in practice to be better than pryor, Titus Adams, Green, Wright, wilfork, OR warren to this point.
If that were the case that would be disappointing and worrisome to some extent , based on his draft position, but not make him a bust by any means.
