i'll just leave this here:
and i'll quote Mr. Newton:
Avant has one catch for 25 yards, but he's been targeted only twice. Cotchery has been targeted only three times.
cant make plays if the QB wont target you. and from what i hear, they were catching pretty much everything Cam threw their way in training camp. people need to do the research and not react so quickly. Cotchery and Avant, while they've normally not been flashy, have always been amazing possession receivers. we certainly have our flash with Smoo (hell he may even be a feature receiver because it seems like he has speed too, and we already know he catches everything in sight). but we need strong, tall possession receivers to back up Smoo. Cotchery and Avant will keep the double teams off KB with their play. they dont need to be flashy. that's KB's job.
