Sorenson Wants Wr, Blackmon

Recommended Posts

Now we come to the real reason. The talking heads say so. Same people who said it would take 2 years for cam to be a nfl ready qb. But yes they must be right about lafell. I have a question that nobody has anwsered is demarius thomas of denver a number 1 wr.

We are all talking heads, but that doesn't explain what and/why the coaches think what they do. That doesn't explain the moves by our FO.

Apparently Denver and a whole lot of others thinks that he is a WR1. I don't know, but I do believe that Thomas and Decker will give Manning ample talent on the edges.

...the fact that LaFell is still a question at all should tell you something.

Seriously? Year 1: Lame Duck year with Fox/Pickles. Year 2: Brand new offense with no offseason and abbreviated TC.

I think, given his circumstances, he's answered a lot of critics.

Like I said, I like LaFell, but knowing what I know now, and seeing what I see, I would bet that Blackmon will be the more impactful NFL WR after it's all said and done. The FO is gonna have to believe that LaFell is going to step up in a big way this year to not even consider Blackmon (esp. if he is there for the taking).

Lafell has better numbers then thomas and they got drafted the same year.

Dude. Seriously. Thomas was hurt, and then when he came back he had to play with The Golden Calf of Bristol. Let's get real. Tell me now, right now, that notwithstanding injury, that you believe LaFell is gonna have overall better stats---or even a greater impact---than Thomas this coming season. If you believe that, I got some waterfront property to sell you (sight unseen, of course) in Florida.

So you make excuses for thomas but lafell playing on a lame duck team his 1st year.and being the 4th or 5th option his next year still. Having better numbers doesn t work for you.

Actually, Thomas has better numbers......if going off when they play in games. He has more yards and TDs per game. More TDs even ignoring the fact he has played in less games.

In my estimation, it doesn't warrant me saying that LaFell > Thomas now, or in the future. But who knows? I don't really care about Thomas and don't really see how he is relevant to the conversation. Your logic here is nebulous at best because comparing the two situations is akin to comparing apples to oranges. For like the 4th time, I think LaFell has potential. How much, I don't know. But at this point his play---regardless of consequences---doesn't warrant leaving Blackmon on the table.

I feel like the elite players in this draft not already spoken for (Griffin, Luck) are Kalil, Blackmon, Claiborne, and Richardson. If we land one at 9 or trade up, I'll be happy about the pick (I will be kind of confused if we get Richardson though). They are just better than the rest of the draft.
