Default ESPN: Our Receiving Core

Didn't see this on the board so I thought I'd post it...


ESPN rated the top receiving core's today and we were #16. They said that they liked that we essentially had two #1 receivers in Johnson and Moulds, and a great TE acquisition in Putzier. Lastly, they said that we COULD have been ranked higher in this category, but we have to prove ourselves first.

I'm surprised ESPN (Eastern Sport Propaganda Network) rated us that high!

That seems pretty fair. If I was writing an article like that, I'd have a hard time giving a team with as many questions as ours has too high of a ranking. Even though we have pretty good answers for those questions on paper.

That's pretty high considering we were the worst team last year....anything done now is speculative, and i dont assume that the ESPN guys will risk their "expertise" respect by ranking us any higher than that.

QB-25
RB-22
WR-16

Makes me wonder. Also, I believe this is a fan-based ranking. I was able to go in and rank teams as I saw fit. The rankings on the link are an average(I think). I thought our rushing attack would be ranked higher and QB and recievers lower until we prove ourselves on the field. Can't WAIT to see how low the defense gets ranked. Hard to justify higher rankings on rookes and offseason moves.

I saw this on Sportscenter today...... felt pretty good they even knew who we were...

I didn't see the 22 @ RB though..... I've definitely got a few things to say about that.

Look one inch above these words and you will see the core of our receiving corps.

The rankings were done on the entire core at the positions and includes the assesment of the backups. That's why you see some of the other areas lower (higher?) ranked as the depth isn't there like it is a WR.

I'm curious. They said that we would've been higher at RB if we had Reggie but we must really like DD because we chose to stay with him.

I see that New Orleans was only at #13 in WR. Where did they put N.O. at RB?

Default ESPN got it wrong

Even in their discreption of the rankings, they stated it was the teams ranking at the position, but then they talk about Pitt and they only talk about ONE guy !? If you win you get good press, if your the Texans you get bad. Right now, on paper at least, out team ( meaning the Texans ) have a very good team. The defense, offence, line everything has been rebuilt.

Kubiak is the man

Like the cd said you have to prove yourself to the media and everyone especially when you had the worst record.
