I find it interesting how no one is laying the blame for any of this on AJ, yet everyone wants to point to one pass play, late in the game, where Gaffney didn't turn around. What about the slant (one of three called all game, evidently) EARLY in the game that AJ just dropped? That could have built some confidence and gotten things rolling. What about the passes that AJ dropped in the preseason? I'm not sure I've seen AJ drop so many passes in a 3-week period.

I'm not really cracking on AJ, and I agree with anyone who says he's our best player, but there's plenty of blame to go around. Stop trying to make Gaffney the scapegoat.

What's funny to me is that the ball was perfectly placed in Bradford's hands yet forget about the one of two db's covering him that pulled his other arm away from the ball. It's not like he caught it and just dropped it.

they didnt pull his arm away.. but they did get a hand between his.. and thats why the ball bounced out.

That play wasnt anyones fault... it was just good coverage.

It was good coverage but alot of guys in the NFL make that catch. I would love to see more Armstrong. This team needs playmakers.

How can you check up on your 2nd and 3rd receivers when you are running for your life?

Bradford was open backside, the whole game. But if the QBs eyes are glued on 80 all game, it will look like the other receivers are covered. Go back and watch the game again, and then reply to this board. Thanks.....

That's very bad if you are defensive minded, because only the defense is suppose to win games. Remember, you can't have your defense out shinned by the offense. THIS COACHING STAFF IS THE BIGGEST BUNCH OF BSers to walk down the lane in a long time and you guys buy it hook line and sinker.
Kasper and Starling caught passes during preseason, cause the qb that was in wasnt glued on one receiver. and they were playing against 3rd and 4th stringers. And Kasper fans, great catches in practice doesnt count. Lets see him do it against starting secondaries in the NFL. And if their so good, how come there still looking for a team to play with

Yeah!!! We need the Burger King dude and the Pepsi machine.

The Pepsi machine could run over the whole DL and then be our #2 receiver!

Guys, stop jumping on WRs that were catching passes during the preseason against the 3rd and 4th string. That doesnt count. And if those receivers that were cut were so much better than the ones we have now, why are those cut guys still not on a team. :brickwall

You could have gotten T.O. and R. Moss in the offseason. If the QB is stuck on 80 all the time, it would be the same problem Its not the WRs, lets put the ball in their hands first, before we start judging!!!!

That would be so nasty. Speed and hands? Works for me.
Honestly though... Like I said in another posts I would like them to start Mathis over Bradford and let Bradford and Gaffney fight for slot #3 & #4.
I can tell u are a practice squad player. Because u can run fast, doesnt make u a WR. Mathis and starling receiver skills are of no comparison to Bradford and Gaffney. You must have forgotten what Bradford did the first year with no help, and no line! And what Gaffney did his second year. That goes to show you, no balls no yards!!!!!!

I would love someone to make a catch like that when a Free safety is running thru his chest and the ball. He(the safety) beat the ball to the spot.

Well you can't catch everything, and you won't necessarily drop everything. You missed what I was trying to illustrate. Just like people think Dave Ragone may see something that David apparently doesn't and want to see if he learned anything over there in Europe. Also feeling like it's worth a try... I feel like just having Mathis on the opposite side may cause a slight change. Teams may not completely focus on Andre and leave something open like just one of our TE's. I mean look at the Falcons the other day with Vick only having Crumpler to go to. Unless we're going to get 4WR on the field more often?

Thoughts and opinions, that's all...
