    According to Garrett they have needed to hold him back because he does too much. So it's possible if he's taking it easy that he's doing it to try and stay healthy.

    He's a great player. I'm just talking about the position he gets on the ball. Sometimes he's in a position where he's open, but where the defender still has a good shot at intercepting the ball. This is due to his size. I've repeated myself, but I'm just clarifying what I was saying.

    These anti-Miles posts are hilarious. I could put Miles efficiency stats from last year side by side with a lot of NFL highly heralded players, and I bet a lot of people would be shocked. Percy Harvin is going to take the Seahawks to the Superbowl, while Miles Austin is a huge disappointment who parties too much to care because he got paid. It's amazing how much perception and hype overrules facts.

    Player A in 2012
    119 Targets, 64 Receptions, 836 Yards, 7.02 ypa, 33 first downs, 9 catches of 20+ yards, 8 TDs.

    Player B in 2012
    110 Targets, 49 Recpetions, 855 Yards, 7.77 ypa, 38 first downs, 16 catches of 20+ yards, 8 TDs.

    Player C in 2012
    118 Targets, 66 Receptions, 943 Yards, 7.99 ypa, 48 first downs, 13 catches of 20+ yards, 6 TDs.

    One of these players just signed a gigantic contract on open market as the premiere wide receiver in free agency, one of them is regarded as maybe the most electrifying young big play WR in the league , and another is a fat has-been loser who parties too much because he got paid.

    Amazing how perception and q factor overrules raw facts.

    Player A is Mike Wallace.

    I'm guessing player B is Percy Harvin

    Player C is Miles Austin.

    The big problem with Holmes was that for a big guy he just didn't have good hands to make contested catches and couldn't generate the separation to make uncontested catches. Thus in the end he was a pretty limited player.

    From what i'm seeing in media wise to me he might make the team as the 5th of 6....Beasley as the 6th, but its still to early....he has to have consistant practices and do something during pre-season...

    We need Miles this season. But he is likely gone after. Any decent two behind Dez should be able to put up similar stats to Austin without the constant owies. If Williams pans out this year he will be the 2 next year with youngsters Harris Beasley Rogers and or Coale behind him. Plus with our solid TE corps we don't need Austin's big salary after this year
