3rd Reciever Spot

37 posts in this topic

One thing we have to keep in mind is that there needs to be someone who can play the Y reciever spot - someone to backup LaFell as the possession reciever. I HOPE that Murphy can do that, or Gettis if he gets healthy. What I don't want to see is Tutu getting a job just because he, on paper, can play that spot.

Smith

LaFell

Murphy

Pilares

Adams

Gettis

Murphy definitely seems to have the edge for now.

Regarding Gettis, I didn't think he would be at 100 or even 90 percent at this point anyway.

Adams will be listed as a receiver but I doubt he sees much time on the field lined up at receiver. I see him more in the backfield in cute little packages chud comes up with. It will be Smith, then LaFell, then a mixture of Pilares/Murphy/Gettis in no particular order.

Me either. Everybody wants him back so quickly, but he is young a really talented. There is no reason to rush him back until he is 100% healthy. He has a good future ahead of him.

Murphy, and it's no contest.

Gettis has a LONG way to go to get back in prime game shape once he gets back on the field.

Did the announcer say to expect Gettis to be in action next week? I think I heard that.

Yeah. They said he might play. He'll be rusty, but you have to start somewhere.

Gettis really has to get back into this race, he has all the talent in the world and could even be our #2.

Murphy has looked good for now and even Pilares in the slot works well.

If Gettis gets back by next week the roster will be,

1. Smith

2. LaFell

3. Gettis

4. Murphy

5. Pilares

but if not,

1. Smith

2. LaFell

3. Murphy

4. Pilares

5. Gettis

Murphy has looked good and I like his speed. I'd say he's in the lead for the #3 WR spot followed by Pilares.
