Sammy Watkins: New Teams, Same Bad Attitude

Recommended Posts

The fanboys also need to realize he had two catches in that game. One coming when the Chiefs already had a big lead. He’s not terrible, but his production isn’t at the level of where he was drafted, and thought of as a generational talent. He’s benefited from being on the Chiefs. His numbers are far from impressive there, they’d be very pedestrian on a typical offense. The dude was supposed to be dominant. 

It’s telling to our situation that he would be a #1 in Buffalo when he is like the 4th best option in the passing game for KC.

I agree, but still believe John Brown was just as productive as Sammy could have been last season. Watkins isn’t DeAndre Hopkins or Michael Thomas. Brown had a good season, but people will always assume Watkins is better because he was drafted higher, and came into the league with more hoopla. John Brown isn’t dominant, but neither is Sammy Watkins.

Yeah, this is really a poor attempt to thrown shade at Sammy.  Everybody on that sideline and every fan of the Chiefs had poor body language at 24-0.  It's human nature.  Stop saying he is not mature, that's foolish

Sammy touched the ball 3 times yesterday for 90 yards. If used properly he can still produce. Kelce & Hill are getting 95% of the touches I'm not saying we should ever bring him back but when healthy he can still produce.

I’ve never seen Sammy catch that pass Duke dropped in the end zone. His inability to make contested catches was one of my biggest criticisms of him. Sammy is average with Mahomes, he’d no more productive than Brown was this season. Plus he’s hurt half the season. 

I watched the condensed replay today. Watkins was targeted twice and had two catches for 76 yards.  Interestingly enough, the Texans jumped offside twice in that game.  Both times, Mahomes threw it deep to him.  When Pat had a free play, Watkins was his guy to target.

I don't see anything that he should be criticized for.  They were losing, he was depressed, a teammate told saw this and told him to buck up and he did.

 

Whats wrong with that?

 

And then he made some plays for his team on the field to help them win.

Decoy Sammy actually had a couple nice plays yesterday.  

 

Decoy Sammy is poised for a big game this week, if Vrabel is smart and rolls coverage to Kelce.

The problem with Sammy is not his attitude.  It his ability to stay on the field.  If he were able to stay healthy, his career would have been much, much different.

I agree with this

I agree, I don’t want us to pursue Watkins, just calling it like I see it.

Exactly, the hate is strong on here with former players.  There are a lot of former players I wish we would kept.

Sammy would be a luxury for the Bills.     There will always be questions about his availability.  I'm curious if he gets yet another big payday.  I also wonder if we will ever see that huge year from him.    Sure looks like the crazy explosiveness is still there

He still has Whaley's stink all over him. Poor guy never had a chance.

Sammy is an interesting case. I never had a problem with him when he was here, and I was genuinely shocked when he was traded away. I didn't really speak out because I believed in giving the brand-new regime a chance. Since then, I have noticed some of the names of the posters who continue to miss & defend him the most, and now I am very, very happy his punk ass is gone. :)

Forgot that one play. He does have games where he looks elite, but he also disappears and is injured far too often. I’m not saying he’s bad, just saying that he’s not worth the price.

This tells me differently.

 

 

Sammy was a stud and we should have kept him

Something mentally wrong with Sammy Watkins. A. Great physical talent but a waste when it comes to Football with a weak mind.

I don’t have anything against the guy. The problem with Watkins is the fact he’s not elite. As the forth overall pick, the cost to sign the guy has always outweighed his oft injured production. He’s simply not worth what it takes to sign as far as value is concerned. I’m convinced that John Brown gave us just as much or more than Sammy would have. Brown had really good numbers this season, and they were better than Watkins (who plays with Mahomes).

Four straight years of under 700 yards receiving. Only 3 TD's in two straight years.

 

He's a backup caliber WR. Plain and simple. He'll never be a #1.

I have no relationship to Sammy but it's not his fault dumbass Whaley traded up to draft him.  He had elite talent but caught the injury bug.  For all those bashing him he's more than likely going to play in a superbowl.  Whaley was also the genius  who passed on Mahomes so bash him instead.  Allen might turn out to be good but  there isn't a football fan alive who wouldn't trade Allen for Mahomes.  Scoreboard.
