I don't know who your source is, but they are DEAD wrong on this one. How can anyone say he's not a team guy?? Not only does he go out there and play his heart out at receiver, knowing he probably won't see much of the ball (he's a long ball receiver and our playbook doesn't include that), but he stepped up to return punts and even blocked a punt last game. He wants to get the job done and contributes in any way he can to help us win.
Not surprised to hear this if it is in fact true. (And, I do take such rumours with a SPOONFULL of salt).
But, DJ is on my "target" list of people who would be shown the exit door. He is the same as Mr Yeast...'throw the ball directly to me and if there are no defenders who are going to hit me I will catch the ball. But I am not going to come back to the ball, jump, or take a hit'
I don't question the athleticism of DJ Flick. But, I do question his heart!
No way, He makes catches in traffic and takes hits. He has been our best all around receiver over the past 2 seasons and is NOTHING like Mr. Yeast.
Im shocked to read this opinion on him, he has taken a pounding and most TV commentators have commented on his toughness. He plays a position that doesnt see as many balls yet have you ever heard or seen him complain? Not once.
He's a professional receiver and they all want the football, but if you have ever met DJ he'll be the first to tell you that losing isnt much fun and he'd rather be winning.
I couldn't have said it better myself, Crash. I'm speechless. Taking hits has never been a concern with DJ IMO. Not only does he take the hit but he comes up with the ball when he does. He has been one of our go-to guys since he got here.IMO one of the reasons for our lack of success is that we're not using DJ enough.
I cant believe im reading this crap.D.J. is the only player who actually looks like he's trying out there.
It isn't his fault were using a highschool playbook.
Second of all nobody in this forum is in the dressing room wit these players,so how does anybody know realistically what goes on in there.
What about Jason Maas?everytime he throws a incomplete pass all he does is shake his head.I never see him on the sidelines trying to get the O.F. going like I seen him do in Edmonton.Where is heart.
I think D.J. is one of the best players we have.
Maybe instead of showing players the door we should show coaches the door.
I didnt say he wasnt trying , I said i dont see him, or any of our guys for that matter, fighting for deep balls when they are in the air .
Maybe it`s a case of thier size I dont know . But i did see Arland Bruce make Allen look good where as ours didnt do the same for Maas . Then after the game you hear that Maas doesnt go deep . He went deep as much as Allen did and wasnt rewarded the same, thus Allen looks like the hero and Maas the goat .
Ive seen one tremendous catch on a deep ball this season and that was Ralph in I think the first game in the first quarter if im not mistaken . That`s a long time in between great catches dont you think ???
Just because some posters have opinions about DJ's playing that's not in line with kissing his butt, they're 'supposed fans'??
Everyone is entitled to submit their views. Is that not the whole point to message boards?
And before I get jumped on because this is my first post and only registered today; I'm related to a user on this site and read the board regularly.
I think it's BS to call people non-fans because they have a view other than your own.
