No Weems is worthless and we should show him the door. A waste of roster space.
While Weems has not been a contributor on the offensive side of the ball, he is an excellent gunner on special teams that helped us be the best defensive punt return team in the league with an average of only 4.8 yards per return. If that's not enough for you, take a look back at the press conference a couple of week's ago that Blank, TD, and Smith held in which Smitty noted that Weems was the special teams MVP for us this season.
In addition to his contributions as a gunner, Weems provides us with some versatility in the return game as we know he can handle both the kick and punt return responsibilities.
Lastly, I would like to say that as talented as Harry Douglas is, even he - as the #3 wideout on the team - failed to make much of an impact at the WR position this past season under Mularkey.
Let's give Weems a chance with Koetter calling the plays to see if he can be a more valuable offensive player. And, even if he isn't, his special teams play will keep him on this team.

However, we need someone more dynamic as the PR and KR. Douglas or Franks can handle the PR duties. They are more dynamic and have a playmaking ability that Weems doesn't.

This has been my issue with Weems as well. Being backed up inside your 5, with a terrible OL can kill any offense.
The only thing I got really excited about with him this season was poor field position as he watched balls bounce inside the ten... but thats just me...

Those cutbacks of his were deadly.
Hail yeah he could be a good receiver. Buddy could probably play corner. Would have been a top 10 returner again if Antone hadn't racked up penalties on his big returns

i've seen him truckstick linebackers...
I don't think so he's too small.

Pretty impressive but his kick and punt returning this season was abysmal at the best.
I agree...what happened?
Posted 29 January 2012 - 03:43 PM
2010 6 receptions for 61 yards
2009 6 reception for 50 yards 2TD (1 30 yards)
2008 1 reception for 4 yards
Does not look impressive BUT his % reception ratio is very high --ie very few drops
in 09 or 10 -- one year he had a 100% completion rate
HE CAN CATCH THE BALL --just does not get many chances
That's 1 TD every 12 catches that's fairly good

The question would be could he sustain it for a whole year being 3rd WR, gunner, PR and KR. That's a lot?
