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.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
