IMO, the only reason Bradford is still in there is that there isn't a homerun threat opposit AJ without him. In todays offenses, it seems like you need a great #1 and the #2 needs to be close to a #1 to keep the defenses from shading over and shutting off the #1 and a solid TE is needed to move it up the middle. With that amount of threat in the basic 2 widout 1 TE set, the defense has to move back away from the line to be ready to cover and then that makes running the ball easier. The question that needs to be addressed in the off season is, can Gaff, Armstrong or Starling be a true #2 with deep threat skills? My suspision is that Starling is the only one with the speed to be able to do it, but may not have the skills (With experience???) If that is the case, we need to draft one or use FA to get one. An FA #2 with low milage will cost some fairly hefty $$$ and a draft guy will take about 2 years to develope. With the need to work on the defense, it looks like we may then be stuck with the ones we have, at least near term (2+years). IMO, we need to hope Starling works out for the #2.
