Catching the ball in tight coverage. Anytime he has to fight for the ball because a DB is right on him he loses. If its a quick throw and he has room, he looks decent.

The problem here is he is not especially fast and doesn't run overly impressive routes. When playing against first string DBs, he may not be open much.

I would rather give his snaps to Joe Adams who may turn out to be a legitimate threat at WR.

Agreed. We have some unpolished gems that need some playing time. If Gettis comes back, suddenly we have a pretty big wr core. Nicely done FO/RR

Hard to argue with any of that.

I'd rather see Adams, Green and Bryant get an opportunity.

He certainly needs to be more agressive-- can't be a nice guy on the field. With that said, there was at least one play (throw to him in the endzone) where he had no chance because he had a Steeler completely wrapped around him-- a blown call.

Is he in the top 6 receivers out of this bunch? Honestly its hard to tell with the limited throws spread out among so many guys. I guess we'll just have to trust that Rivera/Hurney make the right call. Of course, those 5/6 guys won't been seen much anyway, so it might not matter.

During the 2010 and 2011 seasons the team only carried 6 WRs, PR and KR included. So I'm not sure how you bend the numbers to keep Edwards when you're starting:
Smith & LaFell (1&2)
Murphy & Gettis (3&4)
Adams PR
Pilares KR
And if you need to go 5-wide, use Pilares, who is already a better receiver than AE.

That's 6 WRs on the roster....

wouldnt surprise me if he gained his old job back some time this year. As great as Adams is at picking up yards hes gonna cancel it out at best this year with those fumbles. would anyone really feel confident in him during a big game high pressure situation? at least armanti can catch the ball.

This came up in one the other threads last night. Its 100% true he can not fight for the contested catch. Tutu is even worse because he can't catch wide open passes half the time. I'm ok with cutting them both, we already have our top receivers that are reliable and hopefully 5 when Gettis comes back. I'd honestly rather use the spot on Bryant just to keep him safely on the team. That deep ball he caught was a thing of beauty that could not be done by anyone outside of our top 3 (4 with Gettis)receivers.
