Genius!

So by ignoring it does he mean the 3 WR's we drafted in 2010?

When was the last time the sacred Pittsburgh Steelers brought in a big-name FA WR to compliment Hines Ward?

Carolina is a running team.....

....and still has better recieving options than many teams out there.

I'm FAR more concerned about the CB position right now.


I am too ,coupled with LaFell and gettis have a year under their belts.I think it was pretty telling when we drafted a wr because to add one now you have to cut one.

CB and DT are spots that are troubling me.

Personally I think WR is pretty set right now. It is going to hard for everyone to get a ton of catches right now. If Smitty gets 30%, the TEs get 20%, and the running backs get 20%, that leaves 30% for everyone else on the team. If we throw 35 times a game that leaves 10 attempts total for all the WRs not named Steve Smith.

when it talks about this being trouble for john fox's career here, that could give a clue.

just a little educated(?) guessing going on here, but here's some thoughts on how the passing offense could look this year...esp. if newton starts from day 1.

i could see us throwing the ball between 450-500 times this year. that seems like a pretty reasonable amount considering we will be using a rookie QB. bulk of the offense early on will be running the ball. call it 475 passing attempts.
cam will likely have a completion % around 55%. pretty fair, imo. actually i think that number is pretty low, but i'll use it anyway.
that means somewhere around 260 completions. we'll say about 30 passes a game and 17 receptions.

i can see the break down going like this:
smitty- 5/game
olsen/shockey/barney- 6/game
other WRs- 3/game
RBs- 3/game

for the moment it is pretty crowded. i figure inmost passing situations we'll have at least 3 and most likely 4 targets out there. don't think there will be enough balls going around to warrant or justify going out and picking up another WR. at any rate, i actually think we can do pretty well with the receiving options we have.
