If a sure-fire WR1 is not available after our first 2 picks, should we wait? Presuming we go Line with 1 and 2

It doesn't help that we didn't have first round draft picks in 2009 and 2010. Thanks, Hurney.

My dream WR at the moment is a speedy guy, deep threat, between 6'1" & 6'3", who has a chip on his shoulder because he realizes that when people question his route running they are right to. A guy who is hungry to learn and shut people up... Then Smitty takes him under his wing. I don't care if its 2nd, 4th, or 5th. ( We don't have a third atm.)



That guy is already on the team. But was not used at all last season even after he came off of the PUP list. Gettis is over 6' and is (or at least was the fastest player on the team.


Not directed at you, but this is getting really old how people keep screaming for a WR in the draft. We have and have had other needs that have to be addressed long before a WR is even thought of. CB is one of them, we are most likely going to lose Gamble because of his salary cap. That leaves us with no true CB1. We still need a big strong DT and have needed one since Jenkins left. Not to mention I love gross but hes getting up there in age. I would find his replacement long before SS.

Football is won in the trenches not by the hands or speed of WR. Cant throw the ball to him if Cams on his ass all the time.

Yea, I think Hurney started to ignore the receiver position once Jarrett busted out of the league. He didnt want to touch another high receiver prospect higher than the 3rd round. He got scare and took chances on lower rd receivers to try and develop, and depended on veterans (Moose/Murphy/Naanee).

Well, we have a new face at GM and I think he had made it known that he want the guys who can "score tds". Im looking forward to Gettleman taking a WR in the first two rounds.

Just look at it this way. Smitty can still ball, but hes aging and we need youths with talents who can score tds every so often. Let just swap AJ Green's TDs with Smitty's (11-4). 11 touchdowns for Smith and we'd be in the Playoffs while AJ Green is watching the Wild Card rounds from the couch.

i was complaining about fox/hurney ignoring WR even before then. aside from that one hit wonder colbert he really hadn't done anything at WR to show he took it seriously.

i mean i guess there was keyshawn, but even then he was essentially a has been with very little left in the tank.

looking at who our WR coach was back then, it's not surprising that we didn't do any developing of WRs at all. i mean we had a guy as WR coach that was old enough to be smitty's great grandfather.

this team doesn't have a history of taking WRs seriously, esp. since the early 2000's. the only time we really paid attention to it was fox's powerless year.

I completely agree!
I hope Gettleman will change this culture.
Being a NYG staff, it seems like they know the the skill players like receivers are important. Drafting/finding guys like Nicks, Cruz, Jernigan, Randle, Manningham, Steve Smith and Barden.

I disagree with this. Furney drafted 7 wr (Colbert, Jarret, Carter, Robinson, and many more) then they brought in FA wr (Hackett, Keyshawn, Washington, and brought back Moose) . So they tried to fix this it just hasn't worked out.

barden is only good against us, but still the point is clear. they built the team riding the wave of the increasingly pass heavy NFL.

fox/hurney fought against it. i blame fox as much as hurney for this team's lack of progress in the passing game. that's why it should have been that both were released at the same time. instead hurney became "mr. yessir" and was able to keep the job.

there is so much about the culture that needs to be changed and i hope/believe that gettleman is the guy to do it.

I honestly (at least from what I've seen right now) do not see a "sure fire number one WR" and I wouldn't take one in the first round (that could change from here to April though).... As for Smitty having "one more beastly year" I think he has 3-4 more solid years he might not be able to put up prime Smitty numbers but he will not digress as fast as you think.

I'd love to get Amari Cooper (Alabama) in two years


I said I believe Smitty has at least one more beastly year. I am not one of these Smitty-is-falling-off-a-cliff people, though we have to be realistic in this situation. 89 is not gonna last forever. Do I think he can still be an integral part of any NFL offense for a few more years? I won't be the one betting against him.

I like to ask some Question to you WR people.

1. Do you really think there is a Wr in this draft that we can get at 14 or in the 2nd round that day 1 can replace Smith? If not it's a wasted pick.

Unless you're getting a Megatron, AJ Green, A Johnson, Dez Bryant, or Julio Jones. It's not worth drafting a Wr for this team in the 1st round. When we have bigger needs at DT, Oline, and CB.

My bad I misunderstood you...

I'd love to get this guy as a future number one when ever he's draft eligible

We need all those positions equally..there are a few Wrs in this draft who I think can be number ones or 1-A..where a Lafell is like a 2-B..

Allen, Williams(depending on combine) can be number 1s.. Austin, Hopkins, Patterson, can be no 2's and who ever thought Smitty would be anything more than a slot guy? I did not even mention the Tenn guys or Louisiana Tech guy..not a draft that we can afford not come away with a choice WR that fits the system perfectly.

I think we can get one who we can groom into our future no.1. Not one who can come out and give 1k his rookie season but one who can give probably around 500-800yds and 4-5 tds.

I can see Keenan, Hunter, Twill, Hopkins and Rogers hitting a 500yd season in this offense with Cam, Smitty and Olsen. That's just what I think
