To be fair, Seattle is not a great example to prove a point about WRs or a passing offense in general. Theirs was one of the worst. They won games with great defense and running the ball.

LOL...... worst defense ever. You seriously went on Seattle's page to look at their receviers. Other than Sidney Rice, how many of those guys actually contributed for Seattle last year? Nada. Who the hell is Phil Bates, Jermaine Kearse, Charly Martin (former Panthers), Walters, and Steven Williams? lol


I am sorry I actually back up the things I say with a little research. How do you approach the "well thought out" posts you make? I assume you base them off of your extensive knowledge of the NFL that you ascertain from sitting on your couch watching sportscenter?

I am sorry our methods for understanding how things work differ. When I want to know something, I go look at statistics and don't base my decisions off my gut feeling.

For example, if you can find one statistic that would explain why height is not an important factor for recievers I would love to hear it. I have already told you how a reciever under 6' did not catch more than 8 TDs last year, your response?? The tall people have good QBs! Seriously man? That is your argument? Then you decide the Seahawks are your next arguing point and well over half the recievers on their roster are over 6'.

So, lets look at the Seahawks recieving yards and TDs last year

6'4'' Sidney Rice 748 yards, 7TDs
5'10" Golden Tate 688 yards, 7 TDs
6'5" Zach Miller 396 yards, 3 TDs
5'10" Doug Baldwin 366 yards, 3 TDs
6'5" Anthony McCoy 291 yards, 3 TDs
6'3" Braylon Edwards 74 yards, 1TD
6'4" Ben Obamanu 58 yards
6'1" Charly Martin 42 yards
6'2" Jermaine Kearse 31 yards
6'6" Evan Moore 6 yards

So, out of 2,700 yards, 1646 were to recievers over 6' or 61%
Not to mention out of 24 TDs, 14 were to recievers over 6' or 58%

So for the 'shortest' team in the league, according to you, over half the recieving stats were still put up by people over 6'.

I think we have enough offensive weapons now. I'll take a dominant OT or DT in the first and the best available OG/DT/CB/S in the second

steelers last yr had Wallace, Sanders and Brown doing a good job for them, all are barely 6ft and under.


I think it is interesting that teams with obvious lack of WR height tend to make up for it with impressive TE play.

Looking at the Steelers, Mike Wallace only 6' had 800+ yards and 8TDs but Heath Miller 6'5" also had 800+ yards and 8 TDs. These of course were Pittsburgs 2 leaders in receiving statistics. They were followed by 5'10" Antonio Brown with 700+ and 5TDs.

It may also be important to note that the Steelers were 8-8 this year after going 12-4 for two seasons in a row, and if we look back to possible changes in the wide reciever core for an answer to why, the only significant personel difference is the loss of Hines Ward 6'0". Of course, not all the fault would go to the short WRs

Did I mention that Carolina just signed another WR? and he is 6'2"? So clearly the front office believed height might have been an issue as well?

Funny how you left out Golden Tate. He's "1" td away from your "8".

I think it's very immature to say you don't want to draft a very good receiver bc his height.

I think it is ignorant to pretend height is not an important physical characteristic for a receiver. With the addition of Hixon, the probability of drafting a WR in the first is slim to none, so I guess we can end this conversation. It just boggles the mind that you refuse to see how having 6 WRs under 5'10" could be a detriment to our team.

Ideally Star...

If he is gone I would hope there is a team that really wants someone that could allow us to move down and gain a pick to about 20ish and snag Hopkins or Cyprien.

Hixon has no impact on what we do with our draft

I was unaware that adding free agents wouldn't affect our team needs and therefor HAVE A DIRECT FUKKIN IMPACT on our draft...... I swear sometimes, you people.......

We've signed two FA WRs. I believe our targets for #14 will be Defense. I would love to see Star but since he has been cleared 100% I don't see him around at 14.

Vaccaro @ 14
Hankins @ 44

Again, Hixon has no impact and influence in what we do in the first round.

I mean seriously?
