I think Bradford should be moved to a position on the line.

The Unemployment line, that is.

What are some of the things this scheme is going to require? which players on this team are likely to stay or fit into this scheme? and finally what attractice FA's out there would fit into his scheme???

I think we should make an effort to keep bradford once our key re-signings and FA signings are done. He would be good depth for us.

I think Bradford is a track guy trying to play football .... Sure he's fast but that does no good if you cant find a seam in the zone or catch the ball ..... he has possibly the worst hands Ive ever seen for a WR .... I like the un-employment line for him .

Youre right, but which other player should catch the ball, a 4th round rookie?? or should we get an fa receiver?? I think Corey stays for 1 year more...

If that 4th round rookie is a better reciever then yes , he should see the field instead ....I really think that they MUST upgrade the #2 WR position before this offense can be productive .

Remember that Bradford was a FA last season and NO TEAM offered him a contract . To me that says he isnt good enough to ride the pine for many a team in the league .... If thats the case why should he be the #2 here ? Because he's fast ? .... Fast doesnt matter if you cant utilize it .

I was at one time a Bradford supporter ..... I just dont think he's worth the roster spot now considering his contributions . The contract money and roster spot would be better served on a project with potential than what he can give .

Right, but I donīt think there would be a rookie to put him on the #2, and Mathis is not a #2, just a returner... that means thereīs only 2 receivers... Andre Johnson and the RB Domanick Davis... So we had to trade in my opinion... Trade Carr and letīs get a receiver for the #2 and a pick for next year..

I guarantee you that Mathis is at least a better #2 than Bradford. Bradford is the worst receiver on this team and we've cut rookies that were better receivers than him. Mathis, Armstrong, Gaffney--they're all better than him to varying degrees. I say we cut him because replacing him as our last resort receiver should be really easy.

LeCharles has been a productive and steadily improving pro, but he is quite a bit bigger than Denvers average O-linemen, who need to be nimble enough to get to the second level on those stretch plays. I haven't seen the Saints much, but I think they utilize more man blocking than zone. The guy Kubiak would want at center is still in college at Minnesota, name is Eslinger, looks to be like another Kevin Mawae...

Reggie Wayne or Moulds as our number 2 would be great. I know people will say we can't afford either one, but it would be great if we could find a way.

Look for Reggie Wayne to wind up in Philly and Eric Moulds I have no clue due to his age. They would both be nice additions, but they will also cost a good deal. Moulds obviously would be cheaper, but he has been productive most of his career. I think Mathis and Gaff can man the #2 and 3 receiver spot and a rookie or Armstrong would be a solid 4. The rookie I would like to see would be a fast guy not as fast as mathis, but close to Johnson with decent hands. Only place we are going to find him though is at a small school.

I heard them mention on 610 am that Bradford's nickname when he was with the Packers was "50/50". Those were the odds that he would catch a given pass thrown his direction.

Favre always said it was like throwing to the Keystone Cops when Bradford was on the field. Never knew where he would be or if he might catch it or not.
