I wont comment on whether or not it makes sense. I trust the F.O.

I will, however, be watching the WRs very closely on Sunday. It will be interesting to see how often Weems and Fin are targeted, not just on the field, but thrown to. I think we are gonna see a healthy dose of Turner, Norwood, and Snelling, with Norwood also getting a few more screens than normal.

You know, your right. I hadn't thought of that, but they did say Turner would be more involved in the passing game. Maybe Norwood will stay healthy and we could see some 2 back formations in the passing game.

Look they are going to have to reduce the roster by 1 person next week after Babs finishes his suspension.

3 centers, I think you mean McClure, Hawley, Bruggeman. Hawley was hurt in the last preseason game and may not be ready for the steeler game> So it was go with McClure with NO backup or keep Bruggeman for one week.

We have 5 receivers on the roster. One of them is Finneran (old and crippled), and Jenkins is already hurt. Do you think, given our personnel, that it's wise to only have 5 receivers, and yet keep 3 centers? We couldn't find a back up guard or tackle that could play center too?

I agree, I would like to bring Bergeron back.

Five is enough.

Roddy - top 10 WR

Jenkins - 50 catches in last three seasons (ain't half as bad as many think)

HD - should be formidable in the slot

Fin - still capable and definitely not crippled

Weems - will be able to make some plays. STs demon

With those five guys, TonyG, Peele, Palmer, Turner, Wildwood, Smith, Mughelli and Snelling we will have thirteen passing options.

There will only be 65 offensive snaps per game. We will run the ball on at least 28 of them. Ryan will throw to the backs on 8 of them, throw to the TEs on 10 of them and either scramble or take a sack on 3 of them. Roddy will get 9 of those so that leaves 7 snaps for the other four WRs plus the beastly WR everybody is yearning for (VJ, TJ, TO). Good luck.

I don't see WR as a weakness like many here do. The Oline will have to provide protection and Ryan will have to go through his reads faster. I think that will happen and I believe the people obsessing on the WR position and on Mularkey will slowly fade away.

Cool, lets promote one and start them on Sunday.

Man, you just won't let it go will ya? It's like it is your mission in life lately to

Dude! I didn't start this thread. Or any of the other recent threads about this topic. Just contributing.
