He has caught on us a long back-breaking TD pass in every game that we have played the Steelers with him

I listed him a couple of years ago as one of the tall, very fast(in the top seven at the combine) WRs in the draft that we could of had over Pat White AND Pat Williams.

I was told that with Ted Ginn Jr we already "had" our "fast WR" (I personally do not think you ever have too many fast WRs.

What this team does not have is real speed at WR (I play the Dolphins in three online Madden franchises and I hate not having anyone who can beat a defender deep) All three of our WRs(four counting Fasano) are showing that they can get open and catch the ball but it never hurts to have someone that scares the defense.

What they also do not have is the coaching will to throw the ball long This offense under Chad Henne throws deep about as often as Chad Pennington did (Chad Pennington and Brandon Marshall together? Pennington would throw to Marshall 15 times a game, completing 12 of them).

So far Chad Henne is throwing for a lower yard per pass attempt then Chad Pennington did in 2008. 7.7 compared to 7.0. And so far Henne is on a rate to barely match Pennington's 38 completions over 20 yards and 8 completions over 40 yards in 2008.

The truth about Marshall is his YAC has never been big and is close to what it is every year. I think that most of us expected more TDs or even attempted TDs.

I'd rather have a guy who can tackle on kick-off's. That would save us 100 yards per game. Our receiving core is pretty darn good if you ask me.

Hartline is a terrible #2 WR, plain and simple. The man does not stretch the field or make any big plays.

Hartline may not be setting the world on fire, but neither do a lot of #2's. Our WR's right now are better than they've been in 10, maybe 20 years. Marshall is probably the most talented we have ever had, and Bess is as good of a slot as you will find these days. My point is that the WR core is not where you need to look right now when lamenting a loss like yesterdays. Not even close!

Right, so when guys aren't making plays, it's okay because other #2's aren't doing much? What a crap argument. Other teams' #2's ARE making plays and aren't causing turnovers. Hartline is responsible for 2 in the last 3 weeks.

Stop accepting mediocrity and start demanding success.

When I first saw this thread, I thought you meant the guy in Seattle.

I was so pissed when the Lions drafted him before us. Now after successful years in Detroit he's flourishing in Seattle. Damn! Do some research.

Roberto Wallace is pretty fast. I would like to see us get him more involved in the passing game.

And you were there right when we got Brandon Marshall....saying what we really need is speed at WR.

I just gotta laugh sometimes.

I love "we should have drafted ____" threads. I especially love them when they don't even know who they're talking about. Mike Williams...

ugh, I didn't even read the whole post. Clearly I should have. This hit the triple whammy of fail:
1) Hindsight
2) Wrong player
3) Madden.

And I still haven't done more than skim it, so he may have hit the coveted Quadruple!

Isn't Marshall specifically known as a YAC reciever? Short passes followed by YAC.

we should've traded up for terry bradford and get sam bradshaw to help sparano celebrate field goals.

If you are talking about Mike Williams from TB i thought he was the second best WR in the NFL draft behind Dez Bryant (If you dont believe me go back and check my coments i have made on here) and for Mike Wallace most people say that crap after the players get in the NFL we could do that in every draft. instead of Jason allen we should have draft Nick Mangold, In 2007 instead of Ted Ginn we should have drafted Patrick Willis, and the list can go on and on and on through every draft

Sorry about the Mike Williams over Mike Wallace.

I was very tired and rushed while typing this, in fact it was only half done and I had to go. It was been a rough few days. I could not go to the game and then I could not GIVE AWAY my tickets.

The day of the draft a couple of years I did not understand why we passed up on the fast (and tall) WRs like Mike Wallace, Johnny Knox, Louis Murphy etc.

But my main point was that this season, Henne is averaging a lower yards per pass attempt then Pennington did in his full season.

P.S. Just for your Madden lovers :) One of my online franchises is a fantasy one so players are everywhere. A guy a couple of nights ago had Ted Ginn coming out of the slot position and he was freaking killing me! I told him on the head set that that Ginn never did anything like this for us and he replied that Drew Brees being your QB helps a lot.
Well, it's 3:33am so I will try to sleep again.............
