    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.

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    KMart would have scored the winning TD if the CB didn't commit PI by holding him back. That was a nice route by Martin right there.

    Yeah , he shook him outa his shoes .... Probably coulda called a facemask on the play too ....


    Just nice to see that when they have to open it up , they have the ability to do so.

    Yule Yule. Teams like the Pats aren't so hot in pass defense. If we need to we can go all day with them.

    BTW, I noticed McCourty was moved to safety against the Colts.

    I'd rather see send spend a high pick on an O lineman than a reciever.

    I have a feeling that Posey will be a decent player yet, maybe towards the end of the year or next season, we have a lot of really young WR's and are learning the trade from one of the best. I would like to see the texans pick up a solid #2 yet

    I would like to see jean get more snaps. I like what I see from him and think he has big play ability, would like to see him play an entire game with the #1s. I bet he would surprise a lot of people

    All I know is that a poster with SN said that when a team moves a first round CB to safety, that guy is a bust :)

    I think a WR taken high in next years draft should be a priority. AJ is a beast but he's getting older, has become more of a possession receiver, and doesn't get alot of yards after the catch like he used to. Walter is a very good possession receiver, very good blocker, but not real athletic and also not much yac, and getting older. I really like Martin in the slot, he's learning, but I think he'll work out nicely and be just fine in the slot for years to come. Jean has potential but in 2 yrs. hasn't shown us anything consistent, can't stay healthy, and Posey just seems like a wasted pick. Some early round talent would be nice in next years draft to compete with Walter at #2 WR with potential to become a #1.
