i think i'd rather have Kurt Warner than Kerry Collins
im liking some of the new smilies.
OK, Gunny's keen insight as promted me to ask this question. For all you "don't let the door hit you in the rear Bennett" posters why don't some of you offer post Bennett options? Say we let Bennett walk, who is going to be our "#1" stud next year? And I don't want to hear the B. Jones answer because Jones is already a starting WR on this team. I want to know who is going to take Bennett's place.
Answers such as "go out and get a stud FA" or "draft a big play WR" don't count either without stating names and reasons. These simpleton one liners can get pretty stale.
the easy answer is Brandon Jones
he's entering his 3rd year and is the incumbent
even if we get a Stallworth or a Jarrett, I don't think either of those guys would come in and take the #1 position away from Jones
I love Bennett as a fan favorite, but he just didn't seem to make any chemistry with Vince. VY is our fanchise QB, why would we keep Bennett if he isn't putting up good numbers with Vince? I see him going, although I believe it will be a mistake for some odd reason. If we can't find anything in the FA, we'll match the offers and then some. Givens isn't ready, Jones isn't a #1, and our WR core isn't fit enough to help Vince develope. From what I understand we are building around VY, and losing someone that can potentially be a great reciever isn't this teams best option right now. Remember, we have a little money and I'm sure Mike isn't going to be afraid to spend it.
Ok im a Bennett homer, you can obviously see that, but come on lets get serious, i dont care about the stats here, i care about what theyre bringing to the game
Jarrett is pure possession reciever, a great rookie athlete with a nose for teh endzone as a reciever
Stallworth is a great deep ball threat, Bennett is/was considered our deep ball threat, but he doesnt haev the deep ball guy spped, Stallworth does
As for Jones, I like him alot, but idk what to call him, hes just a upcoming reciever right now trying to gell with the defense
And saying that they wouldnt beat him out for the #1 position, youre crazy
BJ is the man...
Jones will be #1. As for who starts opposite him, I'd say we'll have an open competition for it. I'd bring back Wade, draft a WR in the 2nd-4th rounds, and add to that Roby, Williams, and Orr.
Yes, there will probably be a dropoff at WR if Bennett leaves. But we shouldn't dramatically overpay him like I expect he'll be looking for.
Isn't it about time we started getting value out of the draft picks instead of letting them sit and wait for an injury?
There is no point in drafting 3 WRs, one plays the other two do nothing. Throw em into the fire and see what happens.
You jealous the same message gets across in one line?
