I like the math of one player drawing the attention of 3 players over three players drawing the attention of three players any day. You think Cam would have all that room when he runs without the attention SMiths brings?

I just don't know that people truly grasp what Smith does for this offense. It's monumental.

no....i think this year smith is vital to newton's success.

as newton grows in his ability and decision making he will rely on smith less, imo.

i don't see any scenario in the next couple years short of smith getting hurt where we'd have to see an offense without smith taking the heat from multiple defenders so i'm not sure why it's an issue or why it was brought up.

Because the day WILL come when we will have to make a move to put an elite player at that position.

i hope we do.

i just don't think it's something we need to address right away nor is it something that is vital depending on the playcalling and the other receivers available. it would be a sweet luxury but i think the offense is high powered enough that it could do well with just reliable and respectable receivers. elite would just put them over the top.

one guy i like a lot is that mohammed sanu from rutgers. some talk about him possibly coming out this year but if he stuck around another year we could draft him then.

dude reminds me a lot of lafell as far as being physical only more versatile. if we had him and lafell along with gettis and an elite TE i think that would be enough to get the job done.

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

I kinda saw this coming after seeing Naanee play after it was reported that Lafell would start over him due to injury. RR don't want to come outright and say that he was wrong. But he had to continue to play Naanee to get to this point and remove any and all uncertainty.

Great. Now we can't stop talking about this. I swear we had a 'LaFell should be WR2" every week.

Why is it hard to understand that the situation has changed a dozen weeks into the season?

Rivera said that Naanee was needed to help the offense run smoothly on the field until the other players were able to do it on their own. Considering the number of new players to the system, not to mention the youth at certain key positions, it's no surprise that we went with Naanee early.

Simple. Naanee is what he is vs. LaFell young with potential.

We've reached that point where we are basically just toying with line ups to evaluate players for next year while still trying to be competitive.

Really hope LaFell continues to play well, but obviously a move that probably could've been made long ago.
