Kelvin Benjamin is NOT a Number 1 WR

Recommended Posts

Dude was loafing it on a few plays, and you could see lack of effort on a few plays

Benjamin was a slow WR when he entered the league and he's had multiple leg injuries since. When he's out there, he looks like he's in slow motion. He generates zero separation and all he can do at this point is try to use his body to shield the defender on jump balls. 

 

This guy needs to be sent packing once his contract is up. We need some wide receivers with real athletic ability.

depends on what you are expecting. Benjamin is not a burner. he is not a route runner exraordinaire. he is not a one handed grabbing highlight reel guy. but, he is a large man with one hell of a wingspan. he has a size advantage on every db in the game and should be able to shake loose of most lb's on the field. elite, no. good, yes. great? well...that remains to be seen but depends on many, many circumstances.

.......that can’t catch

Benjamin had a terrible game.

 

He looked disinterested. He dropped the TD and a couple others. He gave up on a couple passes. The interference penalty called on the Ravens was really a penalty on him (although I supposed you could argue that was a nice play, ha). 

 

He's really slow but we already knew that. I don't see an reason why every throw to him should not be short or back shoulder and just let him jump up.

Said it before Jordan Mathews actually had more yards and catches than KB.  That tells you all you need to know.  He's a poor mans  Mike Evans.

we've seen him catch. we've seen him drop balls. the truth is probably that he is a decent receiver that is capable of great moments and slumps.

This guy looks slow, does not make plays for his QB, has compete, and focus issues.

 

No way I sign him to a big deal. 

 

Nope.  No way, no how...

Agree .. he was very poor today, even before the dropped TD.  He did not compete for the ball when he went up to get one in the first quarter.  He did not compete on the 2nd Peterman INT. 

 

I would not pay him a lot of money either.

Dude ran his mouth about Cam, Cam punked him out openly on video. Done deal.

He was atrocious today.   Drops, lazy routes, no effort.  He didnt seem to care very much at all. 

 

Thought for sure he would have a turn around year if he stayed healthy because the talent is there but the heart is in question for sure.

I truely believe bills management is terrible at picking talent especially free agent pick up

slow body catcher  Whats the use of the huge body and catch radius when you jump to use your body to catch the football  He wont be here next year  You want a physical jump ball wr I'd rather have 48 year old Brandon Marshall

Defense is a different story, questionable contracts? Sure. But they have brought in successful players (Hyde, White, Poyer, Milano Edmunds)

Other than his dust up with Can Newton and torching Carolina in the preseason,  it seems he care less about anything other than collecting his game check

Been a huge disappointment. I was excited to sign him, but man he is playing like he doesn't care anymore. That dropped TD was pathetic.

Said this when they picked him up.

He plays small.

He doesn’t stay dialed in the whole game.

Im not defending NP, cut him tomorrow, but the first pick was on KB.

He came out of his break and slowed down, saw the ball, tried to speed back up and watched it go by. 

NP’s trying to make something happen and hoping his receiver’s going to bail him out.

I watched KB in person today. His body language, his lack of compete, his drops... he doesn’t even try to lay out and catch a non-perfectly thrown pass. He’s so lackadaisical. Huge disappointment.

The only big extension he's getting are the ones hanging out of his helmet.

I know it wasn’t this year but any time a WR  rolls into camp at 280 lbs (and not always THAT heavy but often overweight), you have to question his commitment to excellence. Of the guys to take risks on I was surprised he was the dude.
