You may consider blocking being over rated but is well known to be a requirement of Kubiak's to get on the field.

Also, just as a note about my thinking, I have constantly mocked WR in first round for 2013.

Ridicule Gary's loyalty but it ranks behind McNair's. Not saying it is not an issue but remains something to deal with.
How can you come to that conclusion based on a very small sampling of work? That's a bit premature to assume they are failures when they are barely given opportunities. I'm not so quick to judge based on their handful of plays that they got combined towards the end of the season. I need a bit more before deeming basically a majority of the wr corp busts because Kubiaks man love for a run blocking specialist runs so deep that he foolishly kept marching the run blocker out there week in & week out instead of giving other wr's a true opportunity to get on the field & make plays. Sure their performances at practices may have dictated whether or not they earned those opportunities, but most of us can attest to the fact that kubiak is loyal to a fault & not necessarily to the best options. For that reasoning alone we can't say it was the wr's actions or the stubbornness of the overly loyal HC. I think I will hold out for a bigger sampling from our young wr's before I deem them failures. That only seems fair. Production can only happen w/ opportunity, which the latter is something that they didn't get much of.
