antonio bryant is a good WR, he's just crazy.
Oh, pretty easy IMO. He's got way more play-making ability, and is more suited as a #1 that can draw attention better than Keyshawn would.
i like our core as it is, even if we only win 4 games this season, give us a couple of years and i see us having one of the best recieving cores in the NFL, we are young, and we are winning, nothing wrong with that, and we dont need 34 year old ball hogs to come in and dissrupt our chemistry
Wait, you're saying that Reche Caldwell, who has 1 season with more than 400 yards receiving, who has never really been a #1 WR (other than last year, where he almost got beaten out by a TE), is more suited as a #1 and to draw attention than Keyshawn Johnson? Johnson has NEVER had a season with less than 600 yards receiving, and the only season in which he had less than 800 yards was when he only played 10 games. I understand that he's old, but COME ON. Who do you think runs better routes? Who do you think is a better blocker? Caldwell probably has more in the tank at this point, but from a skills standpoint, how can you justify that Caldwell would make a bigger difference on our team than Johnson? That really is like saying that Calico would be a big upgrade to McCardell, and Johnson should have more left than McCardell does.
Keyshawn isn't a #1 WR either anymore. Keyshawn is also near the end of his career which means we could have the privledge of having him here the year he lays an egg and proves he is washed up.
Look at Moulds, a guy who like Keyshawn had decent stats year before last and laid an egg last year. Figure Johnson might have been good for 500 yards and 50 catches (thats right his YPC would be a whopping 10.0). Is that really all that much to be excited about? Pay the guy 4 mil a year and then we can beach all year because he didn't magically fix our passing game?
Keyshawn is no more suited to be a #1 than a guy like Caldwell and I'm not suggesting Caldwell is all that good.
I know, I know, both Moulds and Keyshawn have gotten old, and aren't what they once were. But I have a lot more faith in either of them still having a few tricks left than trusting Reche Caldwell when we need a go-to guy.
I don't think any one person would come in and "save our passing game". It doesn't matter who you could bring in, it's a silly idea and I won't defend it. I also don't think we should pay any of these people 4 million a year. We offered Johnson 3. But when you say, who would improve our passing game the most, I'd take moulds or johnson over caldwell. (as long as we're talking about just this next season). Since we have so many young WR, we can assume that one or two of them will be able to step up at some point and we only need some filler while they mature.
lmao at 'laying his egg'..
but seriously.. i sure as hell still wouldnt have minded if he would have layed his egg here...
