name the players, dude. you can't play this game every year like you did with OT's. there is only so much talent to go around. talent doesn't grow on trees. thats why when someone like KB goes down our fanbase literally wanted to commit suicide. Same with other teams around the league. talent is rare
buffalo bills: sammy watkins and percy harvin go down they have marcus thigpen, robert woods and marcus easley miami dolphins: kenny stills and jarvis landry go down they have greg jennings and a rookie devante parker New England Patriots: brandon lafell and amendola go down they have Julian "snapchat" edleman and reggie wayne (to this point) New York Jets: Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker go down they have a rookie devon smith and i don't even know any of those other players Baltimore Ravens: Steve Smith and Breshad perriman (a rookie) go down and they have a bunch of no names Cincinatti Bengals: this maybe one of the very very few teams (including the Colts) that could survive if their top 2 AJ green and Sanu went down with brandon tate, greg little and marvin jones that still very iffy. Do i need to continue? Look around the league there are scrubs after the first two with some players who need more development a la Funchess. We had KB and greg olsen who is for all intensive purposes another WR for Cam with his 1k season and 6 TDs much like Gronk is for the Patriots. Look at depth charts of other teams after their first two talents. Its a bunch of has been veterans and JAG's and rookies who need more development. We have Cotchery, Tedd Ginn and some UDFA's. This is very much like other teams depth charts. If say for instance Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd went down for the cardinals. Do you think John Brown could fill that #1 receiver role? Look at the rest of their depth chart. Do you think any of those guys could fill in those #1 and #2's roles? The only 2 teams i can see that could maybe survive are the Colts and Cinci and that's still iffy. We were very solid with KB and Olsen and Funch developing over the season with complimentary players like Ginn and Cotchery. You can't ask those complimentary players to be more than they are and if you look across the league at other depth charts you would be looking at the same thing.
Also saying something like Ginn is a #6 on any other team is taking things out of context as well as being disingenuous. I want the best for Cam and i feel terrible for him. But you are making poo up.
most teams that lose their top two talents at WR would be fuged.
i don't get this. We had complimentary players for KB and a very talented 2nd round pick working his way up. You take complimentary players, like every team has, and force thrown into roles they are not built for and obviously this is what happens. Please name me one team this wouldn't happen to. I'll wait.
there isn't going to be anything out there and I doubt DG will take over 10+ million a season contract. The only name if be interested in is Michael Floyd. Especially when KB and Funch get healthy. That trio would be deadly.
there is definitely no precedent for him trading but we are in an entirely different cap/financial situation then last year when we went with two UDFA tackles to start the year. We have some flexibility. you're right though it would have to be a trade with our waiver position.
if you take the top two talented WR off any team you would be looking at people who cannot do the job that those WR do. They will be considered scrubs if they aren't in there natural positions just like ours are now. That said we need something. Don't know what DG is going to do but i hope we get someone. Otherwise Cam is going to tuck and run more which will open him up to more injuries. This is definitely panic mode.
