    To all the ignoramuses, Mays injured his hammy at the end of the preseason. That's why you haven't seen much of him.
    Whoa there.... no need for the attacks.

    We haven't seen much of Mays and were able to acquire Mays for next to nothing because he simply isn't all that good.

    Nice pulling out the win. I wasn't terribly impressed with the play on the lines, but they made big plays when they needed them. Having Green back was big.

    The announcers kept harping on the drops by the Cleveland receivers, but McCoy isn't exactly laying in easy to catch balls. He has to share some of the blame from what I saw.

    Mays has been playing ST. Pretty well, IIRC. He's just not playing safety because he's not the better player.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Good win, nice to have AJ Green back as he athleticism can do pretty wonderful things for a young QB. The defense does seem to miss Leon Hall and Dunlap though. Andre Smith was brutal today from the reports I read.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    On some of them, absolutely. But take Clevelands last drive for example, that drop by Little was 100% on him. McCoy put the ball right there on the numbers and he flat out dropped it.

    Absolutely the receivers aren't good, but on the second down play (I think) on the final drive Colt throws the ball right at the guy's shoes along the sidelines. From what I've seen from Colt he sure isn't going to be part of the solution.

    Exactly and how people don't get that being well below average in lateral quickness results in the inability to cover in the open field especially in the NFL where a foot is alot of space to give up is beyond me. Taylor Mays might eventually become a nice 2 down LB for someone but I hardly doubt he ever is a legit decent safety and by decent I mean Chris Crocker not Troy Polamalu.

    Nelson OTOH is an excellent talent and has gotten to be a pretty solid pick up for us, just a shade undisciplined at times. If he cleans that up he'll be a difference maker in the secondary for us. Crocker is replaceable but has done an admirable job because he is crafty and not especially quick or fast.

    Hopefully CB and Safety are 2 positions given alot of consideration with one of those 2 1st rounders next draft.

    Yell bust all you want about Mays, but the guy has freakish size and speed for his position. I'm excited about his future, whether it be at safety, linebacker, whatever.

    I'm aware of that. He's still learning Zimmer's defense.

    Awesome job by Benson today, BTW. Hopefully he plays at that level the rest of the way.

    You don't make it to the NFL without being a freak. I remember when they drafted Andre Caldwell some said you just can't pass up that size speed ratio in the 3rd round. A guy like Jermaine Gresham is a feak with his size and speed. Those guys so far have been nice players, hardly world beaters. Taylor Mays has great athletic ability but stuff like the ability to cut and come in and out of breaks means more than freakish speed.

    Even if Mays is nothing but a quality special teams player it was well worth a late draft pick. You build quality teams by having quality guys all over the roster. I am hopeful that Mays can turn into a good NFL S, but I think the jury is still out on that one. If anything you won't see much out of him until 2012, as a starter that is.

    Receivers are a dime a dozen.

    I'm done arguing about Mays. Until he actually starts, don't bother telling me what he can and cannot do.
