    You know, Bennett was a FA, not exactly a first round pick. If we could get the same production or better out of people we did spend money for, it would go a long way to helping. Calico isn't even on the team anymore, and Givens can't stay on the field. Bennett has caught several TD passes this year, and in '04 had over 1200 yards receiving. It's really not his fault the ball isn't getting to him. I would call out a few others before getting on his case.

    McNair used to drive me nut throwing the ball so that the receiver usually had to go down in order to make the catch. Generally, the QBs who put up the most passing yards are those who are accurate and their receivers get more after the catch. McNair did this much better later in his career.

    Bennett can't catch and doesn't make much of an effort.

    I thought the WRs were having problems because McNair was not spending any practice time with them?

    Now, they have a QB that practices all week and same result. Anyone find it ironic?

    Yes, the WR need to make the catches; however, unless the WR were just running alot of really bad routes, VY also needs to become more accurate.

    Vince CERTAINLY needs to get more accurate. He has to in order to be a successful NFL quarterback. However, he can't get there overnight. It would help his learning curve if the WRs could catch at least 2/3 of the balls that hit them in the hands, and maybe make some extra effort to stretch out for the ones that aren't quite there. Good WRs make plays on the ball, ours rarely, rarely do.

    Well...

    Bennett can be very hot and cold. Is Givens ever gonna get back? He's more consistent.

    Vince Young CERTAINLY needs a lot of work on his accuracy. The thing about this is I've seen him make some tough throws so he's ABLE to do it...he just needs to do it more often.

    But the WR's, TE's and RB's really need to step up their game in both route running and catching the ball.

    Oh, and on one of VY's INT's (which was a bad pass) I noticed 2 recievers in close proximity...which shouldn't happen. Can't make those types of route running mistakes because that will lead to some more INT's that won't be VY's fault. Let's avoid giving him MORE chances to throw picks.
