Rivera says having Newton as a running threat has really helped the team's passing game.

interesting read yesterday from an inferior site...

No need to find a #2 WR, there's already one on the roster

Much has been made this year over the need to find a true #2 WR this offseason whether it be through the draft or free agency, with names such as Justin Blackmon, Alshon Jeffery, Dwayne Bowe, and Vincent Jackson thrown out there as targets to complement, and eventually replace Steve Smith. However after doing some research on AdvancedNFLStats.com (a fine site that you should bookmark if you haven't already) I have deduced that not only do we already have a fine #2 WR on the roster, we have someone that may be able to take the reigns from Smith as a #1 option in the near future. That man is Brandon LaFell.

.

SR: 60.5%, 8th in the NFL. Jordy Nelson, Colston, Lance Moore Welker, Mike Wallace, Avant, and Kevin Walter are the only WR that rank higher than LaFell.

YPT: 10.6, 7th in the NFL. He's been one of the best deep threats in the game this year. Smith ranked 5th with a 10.8 YPT for comparison's sake.

CR: 70.3%, 10th in the NFL. I believe that speaks for itself. While incompletions are subject to many factors, LaFell has been pulling balls down when they come near him.

SR=success rate (The proportion of plays in which a player was directly involved that would typically be considered successful)

YPT = yards per target

CR = catch rate

sure, he's benefiting from smitty on the other side, but to be fair naanee had smitty on the other side and well....

his CR is what is getting my attention.

that was the huge knock on him coming out of LSU and in his rookie year.

I hope he pans out as our #2.

Now a #1 he is not.

I still think Gettis will be #2 but this is LaFells chance to prove he's not just a blocking WR.

That catch where he came back for the ball was pretty sick.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
