Also don't underestimate the fact that now that the QB position has been stabilized and the offensive philosophy has changed to a more pass-oriented style, the WRs we bring in are going to be more productive. Don't count out LaFell breaking 1000 this season
Even for a homer like me, this is a little far fetched. Lafell should be in the 5-7 hundred area. He catches everything, so all he needs are the targets. So if Brandon can get 60-70 catches, his numbers should improve dramatically. I just can't see him getting enough catches for a 1k season.
Not sure where the misconception started. We can throw the ball, and we can run the ball. But, we are not a passing team. At least going on recent history. We had a what? 52-48 pass to run ratio last year? I expect that ratio to remain rather steady. So there are only so many yards to go around. I expect about 4k passing yards with Smitty getting 1500. That's leaves 25k to go around. Why not Lafell?
We have an eclectic group of WRs at the moment. Seems I am not the only one wondering how this is all going to play out.
