Keary Colbert completes improbable comeback

K. Colbert AP

USC wide receivers have a knack for improbable comebacks.

One year after Mike Williams returned from a few years out of the league to star in Seattle, Keary Colbert has made the Chiefs 53-man roster.

Colbert hasn’t played in the NFL since 2008.  He was in the UFL in 2009 and was a coaching assistant under Lane Kiffin at USC in 2010.  That will make anyone want to return to the field.

When Colbert announced his decision to return, we noted that he had an uphill battle to make a roster.  He picked the right team in Kansas City and apparently had an impressive camp.

A former second round pick of the Panthers, Colbert’s best season came as a rookie in 2004 with 754 yards.  If Colbert follows Williams’ path, we’ll be hearing from him again.

    Just like Lienart, you’ll hear little noise from him during gameday.

    Colbert was always a good practice/preseason player, but when the real games start he’ll let you down…

    He was so unbelievably bad when he was with Seattle in 2008. Every pass to him *CLANK* off of his hands.

    The light goes on for people at different speeds. Todd Haley (for all his faults) is a pretty good evaluator of receivers. I’d rather have someone who had to work through adversity and appreciates the NFL do well then some of the other knuckleheads with their diva mentality

    Take it from a Panthers PSL holder, Colbert can’t ball. He can’t create separation from defenders on game day. Secondaries eat this guy’s lunch for him. The fact he’s being picked up gives you an idea of the dire shortage of decent wideouts in this league nowadays

    How bad must things be with Baldwin to threaten him with an assistant college coach?

    I guess it is true, mostly insecure people with anger issues because daddy did not give them enough hugs, really do like to root against happy endings.

    LMFAO I love that. We hate him in New York and couldn’t happen to a “BETTER” guy.

    He stinks, but hopefully he will turn it around.
