It's easy to make the argument that this group can be slightly better than last years because outside of Smitty last years group was non existent.

However this group needs to be ALOT better than last years. It's games against the elite D's like Seattle and SF that it was painfully obviously how poor our recievers were outside of Smitty. I remember watching the playoff game and seeing how exhausted Cam looked in the second quarter.

However I assume we'll run lots of 2 tight end sets with Dickson and Olsen to make up for the lack of recieving. Cam thrived in his rookie season with Shockey and Olsen. Now add KB on the outside and we got some monsters on the field. Really have high hopes for Dickson this season.

This group, outside of KB, is all about moving the chains.

 

Hopefully KB and Olsen can help in the red zone, cause we are going to need it.

How often is WR 6 gonna be on the field? That's the big question. If one can return kicks or even play on kickoff then he will be more valuable. I would prefer Marcus so im not being biased. But if he isnt going to see the field more or as much as your kick returner, then why have him? The only reason i can think of is not wanting him ****** from PS.

I can see both sides of the argument. Adding 6'5 Lucas would be beneficial to Cam considering his overthrows. Adding Philly Brown as the 6th WR would give us a speedy WR and a punt/kick returner. I'm just in favor of adding Lucas.

Hate to say it but our offense will be worse than last year. Some people keep bringing up our 29th ranking but they forget the style of offense we ran.

 

It seems you have forgotten the offense we run.  This year will feature bigger receivers who are just as committed to blocking.  This crop has shown to have better hands and crisp route running, so I believe they will able to take advantage of the opportunities that will present themselves.  Avant will not drop a Cam lob on fourth and three or third and four like Lafell routinely did during his tenure here.  The WRs in Carolina will always need to make the easy plays when called upon the few times a game they are needed.  Our WRs let us down so many times last year and that is why it is not a big deal that they were let go or not re-signed.

Little disappointed in Underwood. Ironically, the way things are shaping up Ted Ginn might have been our biggest WR loss. Going to miss his speed and return abilities.

 

Ginn is losing out to John Brown in Cards camp so I wouldn't quite say that.  He brought important traits to the table no doubt.

Yeah from what I've read John Brown's having himself a camp

There have been reports all over praising Brown but Ginn is probably their #3 given the contract.  They're no slouch with Fitz-Floyd-Ginn-Brown.

Exactly, and people here are acting like we should have paid him 13 million to return punts and stretch the field occasionally.  I will miss that YAC burst and punt return burst, but like a lot teams do the Cardinals went out and overpaid.  Ginn wasn't even an afterthought for the 49ers the year before he came here.  They were letting un clutch drop a punt only when it matters Kyle Williams play over him.  He gets like 500 yards receiving here and he is worth that kind of money.  Its like Underwood said after practice on Monday.  I can see how working with Proehl can help a guy improve on yards and production.

Who will be the returner this year btw? Josh Cribss is sitting at home waiting for a phone call and could add depth at WR.

KB
Cotchery
Avant
Underwood
Pilares/Brown

I think special teams determines our last WR spot/s.

From what I saw the last 3 days of camp, Bersin is miles ahead of Underwood, Pilares and Brown. Brown will need to win the return job to make the roster. He's looked pretty bad in the receiving game and has even muffed some punts, so I think it's unlikely he'll be here come September.

I think we'll add another receiver not currently on the roster.

My givens:

 

WR1/2-Benjamin

WR1/2-Cotchery 

WR3-Avant

 

Bubble for the 4th and 5 guy to have on the active roster:

 

Underwood v. Bersin v. Lucas v. King v. Pilares ---very close.  If DG and Rivera continue their trend with UFAs on the offensive side, it's no crazy to think Bersin or Lucas end up at that 5th spot.  

 

By that first game, I think the guys that will see the field the most would be KB, Cotchery, Avant, Olsen, & Dickson so the bulk of our offense is kinda set even though we've got some great competition going on.

And this really is a possibility during the preseason and cuts.
