Green Bay has shown us that you can never have too many receiving threats.

I think I will wait until at least the end of preseason to see what happens. If Gettis continues to be slow in his rehab the likelihood is that Murphy will get plenty of work in the preseason. Almost a month to see what he has. I hope he is everything we want him to be and more. But he has had trouble staying healthy and his lower body isn't very stout.

I'd like to see LaFell as that 'larger' slot WR matched up vs the smaller DB's personally. I think he and Olsen could really work the shallow/intermeiate routes while Murphy and Smith keep the safeties occupied high and outside.

That's what I was thinking. Lafell is good at catching in traffic, and having him running crossing routes up the middle is where I think he would shine. Probably wouldn't get the biggest stats for his career in this role (since he doesn't have much acceleration after the catch), but I think he'd be the most effective. When Smitty is ready to hang up the cleats, Gettis might be even able to slide into his role opposite Murphy (or vice versa, whoever doesn't get the role this year).

I'm looking forward to seeing Murphy on the field but I think that LaFell will get his shot at #2 WR. Murphy with his speed, I think would fit better in the slot.

I'm glad Murphy came along, I'm not feeling great about Gettis' chances - though I would love to be wrong.

I like Panther receivers who play with chips on their shoulders.

See #89

This is going to upset some people, but I believe murphy's talent may spell the end of Gettis

Gettis's knee might spell the end of Gettis.

As much as I like most of our WRs I temper my enthusiasm with the reality that WRs usually look good in training camp.Its when the hitting starts that the cream will rise to the top.One thing in Murphy s favor he did have a good year in Oakland.Lets see what he looks like in preseason.

I'm glad Murphy's doing well at camp, I hope to see the same thing next week in the first preseason game.

Its been a very, very, very long time since I've felt this good about our WR corps. I don't really care who's #2-4 as long as the competition,brings out the best. I could see #2-4 being on an almost equal talent level. Smith,LaFell,Murphy and Gettis....wow.
