Thank you! Your'e one of the few that seem to grasp what,s going on....
It tells me Jeff Ireland misjudged the talent we have on this roster. Yet again, Ireland vastly overrates the receivers we have and, yet again, passes on an opportunity to improve this roster in a deep receiving class.
This receiving core didnt have enough weapons when we had Brandon Marshall, Brian Hartline, and Davone Bess. We dont have enough weapons with Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson. Not even close. Even if we kept Bess(a roleplayer) we needed a weapon.
This will reappear during the season. We wont be scoring the amount people expect(at least not from our receivers).
Swope was given a 2nd round grade on this board and he went in the 6th round.... That should tell you what fans know
I knew if we went into the draft with Bess we wouldn't take a receiver. We ended up trading him and STILL didn't take one lol. I got a lot of flack for saying that, but I was right
Maybe we take one in the 7th, but I doubt it.
