OMG,OMG, another great WR goes to the Patriots!
Which team has a better passing attack? The Dolphins or the Patriots?
Which teams has better WRs? The Dolphins or the Patriots?
We clearly have the best WR corp (not counting TEs) yet they will have a better passing game. In fact, the patriots did not need the "magical' number one WR last season, they had a slot WR and two TEs.
The reason is so simple that some people can't get it. It is not about the WRs, it is about the QB. Put 3 All Pro WRs on a team with a crappy QB and you are going to get a poor passing game. Put a All Pro QB with 3 crappy WRs and you will get at least a decent passing attack.
Give Tom Brady our WR corp of Wallace, Hartline and Gibson and they take the super Bowl.
Except the Fins do this all the time. They call a guy and say they are picking them and then donít. Just like they did with Jordan Reed, telling him they would pick him then trading the pick.
Most likely they knew the Pats were listening and suckered them into picking him. Just like they did with Mallett.
''We probably have guys that make it happen, We have some that watch it happen. And we have some that don't know what the hell's happening. They all fit in one of those three categories.''
Can this "whoever the WR is at the moment" be a gunner on kick offs and punts? Can he play special teams? Because if he is not a special teams star, and he cannot beat out Wallace, Hartline or Gibson, then what use is he? We only dress 4 WRs for a game, we can only dress 45 players for a game. I know Americans are not great at math but this is simple stuff.
I agree, and anyone that can play one down in the NFL has those minimal skills. But what would a P Manning do with 3 minimum level WRs? He would get a good passing game out of them. Compare that (and the money spent) on putting WRs C Johnston, B Marshall and V Jackson with QB John Beck.
Which group do you see doing better?
happens all the time in the draft.
