Is anyone else worried about the WR corps we have on the team? I thought LeStar Jean would at least come close to Jacoby's production, but I saw him make one play today and little else.

I'm happy that Keshawn Martin stepped up today, the kinds of returns he made are what we've been missing this season and he's slowly gaining Schaub's trust and a place in this offense. However, he hasn't been the guy we've been wanting, a speedy receiver who could stretch the field and take pressure off AJ.

Also, I love AJ. 10th season and still a beast.

Well LeStar was hurt, and they limit his snaps from what I can tell.

Not to mention that Posey can't even get onto the field. I am wondering if we are going to get anything out of Jean. Martin shows some promise, but I was at the game and I saw him not get much separation on his corner. I'm hoping someone emerges from those 3. I'm giving them more of a leash since they have 2 good WRs ahead of them and a whole host of TEs who account for a large part of our offense.

After watching them go 5 wide and do what they wanted ..... Im not concerned with the WR spot at all.


Wouldnt mind drafting a guy early at the position to maybe take over for AJ in a year or two .... but Martin and Walter are solid enough behind AJ as #2 and #3 WR's.


The more I think about it , the more I believe the OL needs a premium pick than any other unit. (Tho a lot depends upon what they do with their own FA's.)

our WR's are doing a good job.... I mean you can't have All-Stars at EVERY position....

AJ = BEAST
Walters = gets it when we need him to
Martin = was very good today

PLUS

our TE's are like WR's.... in our offense anyway... so when you add
Daniels
Graham
Casey
to the list of receivers... we are doing pretty well....not to mention Adrian catching out of the backfield....

remember.. Schaub had a HUGE day. and Andre only caught 14 of those passes.....so SOMEONE is catching the others.... give the receivers a break!

I'm not worried. We spread the ball around a lot and use our TEs like receivers. There just isn't enough of the ball to go around for everyone.

KMart would have scored the winning TD if the CB didn't commit PI by holding him back. That was a nice route by Martin right there.

Yeah , he shook him outa his shoes .... Probably coulda called a facemask on the play too ....


Just nice to see that when they have to open it up , they have the ability to do so.

Yule Yule. Teams like the Pats aren't so hot in pass defense. If we need to we can go all day with them.

BTW, I noticed McCourty was moved to safety against the Colts.

I'd rather see send spend a high pick on an O lineman than a reciever.

I have a feeling that Posey will be a decent player yet, maybe towards the end of the year or next season, we have a lot of really young WR's and are learning the trade from one of the best. I would like to see the texans pick up a solid #2 yet

I would like to see jean get more snaps. I like what I see from him and think he has big play ability, would like to see him play an entire game with the #1s. I bet he would surprise a lot of people

I think he would as well if he can just get and stay healthy.

All I know is that a poster with SN said that when a team moves a first round CB to safety, that guy is a bust :)

I think a WR taken high in next years draft should be a priority. AJ is a beast but he's getting older, has become more of a possession receiver, and doesn't get alot of yards after the catch like he used to. Walter is a very good possession receiver, very good blocker, but not real athletic and also not much yac, and getting older. I really like Martin in the slot, he's learning, but I think he'll work out nicely and be just fine in the slot for years to come. Jean has potential but in 2 yrs. hasn't shown us anything consistent, can't stay healthy, and Posey just seems like a wasted pick. Some early round talent would be nice in next years draft to compete with Walter at #2 WR with potential to become a #1.

hmm i still think Jean and Posey need to step up for me to feel fine with the Wr corps

but right now everything seems to be "Fine"

has far has the draft goes i dont think they will draft a WR in the 1st round just because they have AJ and they have about a 2 year window with him in terms of not even having a open slot for a WR rookie

And besides i think the 1st round picks always go to the D now and a wade pick

TBH, I don't think WR is that big a deal in Kubiak's system.

Although I bet he was thankful he had AJ today.

I dont know where they would use a #1 right now .... I really believe need to see how FA plays out first because they may have to cut someone loose because of the cap .... They have quite a few FA's this coming offseason.

But looking at the defense as currently constructed , I dont see a lot of holes. An upgrade at NT , maybe.


Looking at the offense ..... I see the OL not getting it done in the run game , sure they are 8th in the NFL in total rushing yardage , but they are in the bottom third in terms of avg per rush. We've seen Foster tackled for a loss or a very limited gain far too many times this season ....

As much as they rely on the running game to set up everything they do .... they need to improve that avg per carry.


They might be able to get a value pick late in the round as OG's , even the top tiered dont tend to get picked until the end of the round (tho there are exceptions).


OG , RT , ILB , CB , NT ... in no particular order are what I'd be looking to solidify in the coming draft (again , this is without FA).

I hate that play. It never works. I don't know why we.... oh... oh my..

Andre just said, "Fugg it!! This game is ovah!!"

I am.

But honestly, like everyone else has said..... we've got TEs & RBs that catch the ball out of the backfield. As long as we can efficiently score, it's all good. If our Defense would have played like our defense, I don't think we'd be complaining about our offense.... sounds funny, but true.

I'm happy that Keshawn Martin stepped up today, the kinds of returns he made are what we've been missing this season and he's slowly gaining Schaub's trust and a place in this offense. However, he hasn't been the guy we've been wanting, a speedy receiver who could stretch the field and take pressure off AJ.

I don't think that was Keshawn stepping up. That's our special teams stepping up. I think that's Marciano responding to last weeks on-camera tongue lashing. If we had either Jacoby or Trindon, those would have been TDs........ no doubt in my mind.

Don't take it the wrong way, I'm not slamming KMart, I'm complimenting Marciano & the ST.
