Default The WR position

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.

Default Re: The WR position

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.)

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.

Default Re: The WR position

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.

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 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.
