Ramses Barden looking for new start. Martellus Bennett resolved to his fate

66 posts in this topic

Um Brandon LaFell is one of the better two's in the league. Everyone compares our wide receiver situation to Atlanta because they are in our division when I would take our wide receiving corp over about 15 other teams. It would obviously be ideal to find Smitty's replacement ASAP but if it doesn't happen this year, then it will definitely happen next year.

I hope you aren't including Armanti in that core.

. . . you know Ramses Barden only has 29 career catches in 4 years, right?

how in the world do you only get 29 career catches in 4 years at 6'6?

Smith, LaFell, Murphy (as a four).

I don't know. And 9 of them came in the game against us where every other receiver on their team was hurt.

Dude is talented and has upside, and might be good depth, but acting like he's a proven 1, 2, or 3 is dumb and wrong.

By being a bad Wide Receiver.

And as someone already mentioned, 9 of those 24 came against us last season.

"No on both."

Yeah lets hold onto a bunch of WR's that haven't done jack poo in, oh I dunno, forever.

I hope your not delusional. Steve Smith is the ONLY WR WORTH A DAMN ON OUR ROSTERRRRRR

I'd rather take a shot on that Lamont Jordan cat we got on the practice squad. He's 6'6" and supposedly a great athlete with good hands.

To date, Armanti Edwards has 273 less receiving yards than Ramses Barden. And that's without taking return yards and physical differences into equation. Or the fact that Barden has been in the league a year longer.

We need to upgrade at WR, and this guy is a physical freak, but not sure he'd do much to actually improve the team.

I wonder if he's as good as that 6'5 dude named Lamont Bryant thats on the practice squad?

Just messing with you.

I like Ramses Barden and David Nelson as cheap additions to be #3/4

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
