These posts are eerily similar to those written about Torrey Smith at this time last year!
Last year, the Ravens didn't have a speedy receiver they could trust so the pressure was applied to Smith - a high draft pick. This year, they Ravens have a speedy receiver (Smith) so Streeter - a low round draft pick - should be able to learn and grow without the crap laid on him by the fans.
The point is that many of our fellow fans are so eager to get exercise, they spend their time jumping...to conclusions!
They should wait until TC and the preseason.
It's way to early to pass judgement on this guy. Last year Torrey Smith looked horrible in preseason. He cut off routes, dropped balls and just looked confused in general. I remember people here saying the Ravens should just cut him, admit a mistake, and move on. I stopped short of that, but thought he was a very raw project who would need a couple of years before he would ever develop. By midseason, all of us were wrong. There used to be a time when wide receivers took a couple of years to adjust to the NFL game. The relaxed rules in the secondary have erased that. Streeter may or may not be a bust, but there is no reason to assume that before any preseason games, or as Torrey Smith showed, maybe not even after them.
Only media members were admitted to those workouts. You say you were among them. I say B-S. That's when you were asked for you name and affiliation. You refused, and tried to "play it off."
