    According to some on here a true #1 produces while also demanding extra coverage.

    And how many yards did Smith have that year?  By most people's definition on here he wasn't a #1.

    And the top two receivers had worse then the top two this year.  Which furthers what i'm trying to explain in that we aren't going to have three 1,000 yard receivers on the team.  I'm not sure any team in the league does.
    2013:
    http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/stats/_/name/car/year/2013
    Olsen - 816
    Smith - 745
    LaFell - 627
    2014
    http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/stats/_/name/car
    Olsen - 1008
    KB - 1008
    Cotchery - 580
    Personally I believe our offensive passing problems go a little deeper then the statistical output of our WR2.  This Cotchery hate sounds a lot like the LaFell talk that was very prominent on this board before he left.  Somehow NE won a few games with him as a WR2.

    I'm not sure we are going to have a #2 receiver that does well statistically anytime soon.  With Olsen here our #2 receiver is in reality our #3 receiving option.  Also our offensive philosophy doesn't really seem conducive to having 3 receivers with high yardage totals.

  5. AU-panther added a post in a topic Fozzy   

    I've said for awhile that I thought Fozzy and Todman are fighting for the last RB spot on the team.
    In a lot of ways I think those two fill the same role on the team, that of the third down back.  I'm not sure the team views either as a potential every down feature back.
    Stewart is the starting every down back.
    CAP has the potential to be an every down back and we invested a draft pick in him.
    Tolbert is the change of pace big back that can also play fullback.
    That leaves Todman and Fozzy to fight for the last spot.

    Seems to me that Ginn might play a larger part in the offense then some originally thought.  
    To listen to some people Brown was going to be the #3 receiver and Ginn was just going to be a PR/KR.  If Ginn does see a considerable amount of snaps on offense I am guessing they are going to cut into Browns.

  7. AU-panther added a post in a topic Brown, Boykin, Byrd?   

    I tend to look at the receivers in groups.
    KB and Funchess are fighting for 2 spots (otherwise known as locks)
    Cotchery, Bersin, and Boykin are fighting for two spots.
    Ginn, Brown, and Byrd are fighting for 2 spots.
    A lot of this will be determined in the preseason games, and it won't necessarily be who makes the spectacular plays but the one who consistently does their job.
    The fans get exited over the 20yrd RAC but have no idea about the times a player runs the wrong route or misses a block on a running play.

  8. AU-panther added a post in a topic The INT's that led to the fight....   

    Sometimes when an interception is that bad it isn't an accuracy problem but a miscommunication between QB and receiver.  For those that were there is there any chance of that being the case?

    Why is it always the o-lines fault?  I haven't heard anything about pressure on that play.

    Did Cam go out of his way to get in Josh's way?  I assume yes since you said it was an out route.

    Quaterback accuracy and play design are just as important to YAC as the individual skill of the receivers.  Hopefully we will see an improvement out of everyone this year.

    I'll be somewhat surprised if we go into the season with 4 running backs and Tolbert on the 53 man roster.  There are just so many carries to go around.  Cam and Tolbert will probably have 8-12 carries between them.
    Personally I think Fozzy and Todman are fighting for a spot.  Also I expect Williams to grab one of the tight end spots.  I would think we would want 3 pass catching type of tight ends on the roster.  If we only have Olsen, Dickson, and Brockel what happens if Olsen or Dickson gets hurt.  Would we still be able to run 2 TE sets?  I think of Brockel as more of a h-back type of player.  How many catches has he had in the last 3 years?
    Here is the way i see it so far:
    RB - Stewart
    RB - CAP
    RB - Todman or Fozzy
    RB/FB - Tolbert
    FB/HB/ST - Ward or Brockel 
    TE - Olsen
    TE - Dickson
    TE - Williams

  14. AU-panther added a post in a topic Wilson: 60 million guaranteed over 4 years...   

    Like you said we don't really know what the final structure is.  The numbers I listed above are based on what little info I have found so far.
    My best guess on what I've seen so far:
    5 years for $89.1m which works out to an average of $17.8m.
    Cam's contract
    6 years for $118.46m which works out to an average of $19.74m.
    Could they back load Wilson's contract? Of course, but that still doesn't change the yearly average over the life of the contract.  
    Personally I am fine with paying Cam more, but this idea that Wilson's contract is going to be a bigger financial burden on the Seahawks than Cam's contract is on us just isn't factual based on the info we have as of now.

    If that is true for Seattle then that will be true for us also.  Cam's yearly cap hit will be just as much if not more than Wilsons.  Both teams are out of the window where they have a cheap quarterback.
