    • Yes...........Greg Olsen
    • Yes...........Either Stewart or Tolbert

I voted LaFell just because I love his play and starting as #2 all year will give him more chances.

But I'd be happy with spreading it around or running more. I'm not picky, just win!

I am willing to bet good money that Lafell won't go over 1000 yards

Love all our players but I have yet to see a 1000 yard season from Lafell. He can catch and is good at the goal line, but let's not kid ourselves with Gettis healthy he may be lucky to get many looks.

Sorry, I have no money, good or bad. :(

And I'm not a betting woman.

Based on Chud's (and Norv) systems....if Smitty stays healthy Olsen is the guy with the best shot.

I think Smitty can get around another 1300 or so.

I think LaFell and Gettis will combine for around 1400.

The RB-FB trio will combine for around 800.

Olsen and Barnidge will combine for around 800.

That puts Cam at like 4300 for the year, 270/game average, which I think is reasonable.

That averages out to around:

80 yards/game for Smitty

85 yards/ game divided between LaFell and Gettis

50 receiving yards/game for the RB's

50 yards/game for the TE's

I really think that with everyone having a year under this system, our offense will just go with whatever that days defense gives us. So there will be a strong ebb and flow throughout the season of Cam having a big yardage game against one opponent, and then Triple Trouble having a big game on the ground the next.

Should be a lot of fun to watch.

I'm a lot more interested in who our go-to red zone target will be. LaFell, Gettis and Olsen all are guys that have the right physical characteristics, but all have something to prove in that regard.

I sincerely doubt anyone else will have 1k yards. Olsen might. But I honestly believe the ball will be spread around way too much for anyone else other than smith to get that many hards.

I would be looking at who will get the attempts and not so much just the player. LaFell is in position for a break out year and I dont think he will be letting Gettis by him on the depth chart this year. He blocks better, catches better, and as of now he has a year of experience in the system over him. They will both get their touches but i think LaFell will get more this year at least.

I dont see a single TE drawing enough attempts in this system to put 1000 but I think Olsen is capable if they were to design it that way.

I'll take Gettis next year if he stays healthy this year. For now. . . Dat Deal

To date, LaFell has shown to be a more well rounded WR. Gettis is kinda a deep ball threat at the moment. LaFell was more impressive as a rookie using his body and other routes. He was targeted more as a rookie....so with LaFell also having more experience I don't see Gettis getting more reps. Gettis may have more big plays.
