Has anyone heard anything about Je'Ron Stokes? We have so many Wide Receivers so I could see why nothing has been heard about the Sophomore but I'm just wondering if he's even been making plays?
especially since three or four of the recievers you mentioned in your many are freshman.. and stokes can play outside too
They've shown some highlights of him on some of the countdown videos. I think he will get a lot of playing time this year when either Stonum or Hemingway need a breather.
I wonder why more haven't shifted to the defensive secondary a la Gordon?
they brought cam gordon in with all intentions of moving him to defense. that's not the case with the other receivers
Could he move to defense?
He could play at safety IMO, but our depth isn't that bad there anymore. Only way I'd move a WR over to defense is if he can play CB, but that's a tough transition to make becuase most WRs are just too big to play CB and don't have the hip flexibility
The secondary has plenty of depth. There's not much experience, but the depth is there. We have about 17 safeties and five corners. We really don't have a ton of wide receivers - Stonum, Hemingway, Stokes, Miller, Jackson, and Jerald Robinson are about it. One or two of those freshmen need to redshirt, so you can't move guys over to defense and run out of wideouts.
magnus, could you see some of those safeties shifting to cornerback? clearly we have an excess of safeties.
I don't really see any of them shifting to cornerback (other than Teric Jones). Most of them don't have the speed or hips for it to even be a possibility. Ray Vinopal would probably be the most likely, but I still don't think that would happen.
Not hearing a lot of about him could be an indication of very positive development - increasing depth. We know the roster is getting where it needs to be when there are quality players developing and waiting for their chance.
it's refreshing to hear about a highly rated kid coming in and actually having the patience to wait for his turn!
Before camp started he was considered the 3rd WR. I would think it's still his to lose.
We'll probably see Roundtree and Odoms outside more often this year, giving us more flexibility with those slot guys.
if the coaches are smart then they would get the ball to Stonum.
I clicked on this thinking something that possibly something bad happened to him, can you please be more informative with the title?
Don't be such a pessimist. There is nothing about the title that implies anything negative--the negativity is in your head. I read the title and thought, "Oh yeah...that is another potentially stud receiver we have who I haven't heard much about. Wonder how he's doing." ? does not equal bad. Perk up and think positive thoughts.
I agree. Titles like these drive me nuts. Being vague is bad in this case. It's like Coach Rod telling the offense to run up the middle, instead of giving them a play with everyone's assignments.
about something that must've taken about 10 seconds.
Although, in his defense, the thread title is not very informative.
the depth in the receiving corps and the youth starting with stokes on down, he is the leader of that pack where roundtree and odoms along with stonum and hemingway are the "vets"
No guys, if I wanted to inform you that something bad has happened to Je'Ron Stokes, I would say so in the title. Obvously the past two seasons has made many people even look at Forum Topic titles negatively. You should have been relieved once you saw nothing was wrong not criticising me for making you think that something was wrong.
Well, you're such a trusted and well known poster that I guess we should have known your posting habits. Dieseljr32 would never mislead us, guys!
Anyway, maybe you could just suck it up, make a more informative thread title next time, and not whine when someone correctly points out that your thread title lacks information. You don't see many newspaper articles titled "Kwame Kilpatrick", do you? No, you see newspaper articles titled "Former Detroit Mayor Kilpatrick Allegedly Killed Stripper, Cashed Child Support Checks."
This thread that I created was never intended to be for news. I was asking a question about if anyone has heard anything about Je'Ron Stokes. I wasn't reporting anything. Get off my back.
You could spare yourself further grief by simply editing your thread title.
Well, nobody had a problem with the thread that was titled "JB Fitzgerald PT?"
People had a problem with "Je'Ron Stokes?"
I wonder why...
Diesel you are fortunate these negs cost points. Last Saturday you would have been negged ruthlessly for your transgression. I like it, good job Brian!!!
Wow guys. Really?
people are actually arguing over thread titles.
Our Dear Leader has addressed this subject in the MGoBoard FAQ:
What should I title my threads?
Please make your thread titles as informative as possible: "Justin Feagin" is bad. "Justin Feagin leaving the team?" is good.
Best to admit defeat and live to post another day.
The last two threads with a players name for a title were Justin Turner and Richard Ash... I almost had a heart attack when i saw this.
I was worried too. When BiSB [Superblogger] with 24K is concerned, I'm concerned. Everyone is as fidgety as a whore in church. Gentlemen, we have a good season to look forward to. The M -Go- negathon is in play. Chill, please!!!
