i think lafell will end up being about as good as muhammad.
not to nit pick or just be argumentative but if you are strictly going by wide receivers I'd give every single one of those guys not named Smith for Muhammad circa 93/94 .... Proehl would just be the icing on the cake
i think there is a lot of talent in these guys and i'm really not worried about the future of the position either. lafell has done a lot to prove himself as a very solid receiver and downfield blocker. he's as tough as you would want a WR to be. we all saw what gettis was capable of with a much less talented QB throwing to him and most of us have also seen what murphy is capable of in oakland and getting a taste of what it could be with cam. add to that the potential threat in a guy like adams and then throw olsen in there and you have a very deep and talented WR corps that should be able to stand up to any secondary and pass defense. the system and QB we have here will also help make them, as a group, be more productive than any WR corps we have ever had.
yeah, it would be great to have muhammad in his prime with smith in his and proehl in his, but that ain't happening.

i take it you haven't been following what has been happening at TC.
Surprised everybody is this high on Murphy. I don't see him getting anywhere near the #2, and wouldn't be shocked if he doesn't make the team. He doesn't contribute on special teams, isn't a fluid route runner, and isn't consistent catching the ball. Not that he's terrible, just don't know that he brings a lot that we don't already have. Smitty doesn't play ST anymore, and LaFell, who Rivera said today had "a strong hold" on the #2 spot, doesn't play special teams either. That makes it tough for a guy that doesn't return or cover kicks. Even if they keep another guy just for WR, Murphy would have to beat out Gettis and Tutu, who Rivera is familiar with from SD.

It was a conern with Dat Deal too when he came in, same with Gettis, same with Pilares, and now same with Adams and Murphy. Still, it just hasnt been an issue under Graves. They all look the ball in and track pretty damn well or improve in those areas over their time here. If he does happen to be weak in the dropsy area, I feel comfortable in saying that at least it may not take long for him to get better.

thats why he's playing wr in the NFL and you're here typing about it.
he has the abilities to make cuts like that. you have abilities to type about it
Actually he's playing in the NFL because he wants to and I don't. You speak as if it's an either/or kind of think...that EVERYONE has tried to make it to the NFL, and some succeeded and all others failed.
I don't give a crap about why he's there, nor do I care what you think about what I think about it.
The guy's legs are RETARDED, and PAINFULLY SO, and no, I do not use that word liberally.

Everybody's knees have a certain level of lateral flexibility. It's not his fault that you are a stiff legged motherfuger.
No, my legs are just normal. Tone enough to turn women on...been told as much.
This guy's legs bend this way (^) and this way (<) at the knee. That is the DUMBEST thing I have ever seen. I guarantee you it's going to break one day.
