Didn't see this one up, yet. Shocked that it wasn't posted 5sec after it was announced:

I just feel like we are not at full strength on the offense without this guy. LaFell is decent, but he is not a true number 2.

LaFell looked more like a #2 than Gettis as a rookie. Gettis had speed....LaFell did everything but the vertical route better back then.

The legend of Gettis will likely continue to grow....

I would agree that LaFell has slightly better hands, but its not that big of a difference. I prefer Gettis' speed over LaFell's hands.

Feel bad for him but honestly we're in good shape to score a ton of points this year whether Gettis is healthy or not.

God speed David

500 yards and 3 touchdowns 1 year with Jimmy Clausen, Matt Moore, & Brian St. Pierre makes you a potential 3rd receiving option for the Panthers /huddle logic

I just don't feel that number 2 vibe coming from LaFell. He just doesn't have that spark. I keep waiting for him to have that moment, that one catch that says "Here I am!", but instead his play just says "blah". I see his potential as being a little better than Proehl, and that doesn't cut it for me. (I see LaFell as a #3)

Gettis had that swagger late in his rookie season. He saw an opening, and he made the plays that said "Here I am!" How many signature youtube plays does LaFell have from his rookie season? I can think of at least two from Gettis.

With who was throwing to him, it was impressive. He had some big time plays you fail to remember. God it is like nobody watch the games that season because we were so bad. Dude just has to catch it and he has breakaway speed. Also he is bigger than Lafell at 6'3 220ish. He is very strong and a great weapon to have on offense. How quickly people forget, but oh how quickly people will remember and suddenly love the guy.

Soooo where have you been all last season and this preseason? I must have missed something here. You were looking at #11, right?

I didn't see anything spectacular. Did he make good plays? Yes. Did he make plays that said he should be a starter? No, not really. LaFell would definitely be a number three receiver on a lot of teams around the league.
