Yea, Naanee has made some mistakes this season, but the hate for him on this board is rediculous, seriously.

Why aren't we talking about this.
We have actually managed to develop a promising young receiver. Whose name isn't Steve Smith.
I'm not saying he is going to be a world beater, but IT CAN BE DONE. Let's just draft all our WRs from LSU!

Also, who are the "elite" TEs in the league? How close/far is Olsen from being considered for that group?

Rivera said that these 6 games were more about finding out who was going to be on the team next year and who they could count on, versus who was better or could help them win. How much does the shift from Nannee to LaFell represent an oppportunity for LaFell to prove that he can be a number 2 receiver versus giving it to him because he is clearly better than Nannee. Maybe Rivera knows what he has in Nannee so he is playing LaFell to see if he is going to be here next year versus playing him because he is better. This could be a test that LaFell has to pass. Or maybe they know that Nannee was only a stop gap and will be gone and are playing LaFell to see if he can take that spot or will be gone as well.
Exactly. The coaching staff is probably looking at this as an audition to see whether or not they need to add that solid WR through the draft or FA next year. Hopefully LaFell steps up.
