If Gettis could produce in his rookie season playing with Moore, Clausen and Brian St. Pierre, I don't see any reason why he wouldn't produce with Cam. Not really hyping him up, I'm basing my opinion on watching the guy play. He was probably the most exciting player on offense that season. I don't care much for Bryant though, until he shows me otherwise.


Well he can't produce with Cam or any other QB if he can't get on the field like the past 2 seasons..

Like I've said before, this is his all in year. He better turn it up, and I hope he does.

With all the WRs on the roster and a possible draftee, most everyone of them will need to step their games up significantly. 3-4 positions are up for grab. If they don't give 100% they'll likely be looking for a job.

Well obviously. I just don't understand why people on here act like he can't play or something. It's like they completely forgot about the 2010 season. I think if he didn't get hurt and actually played these last 2 years, so many people would feel differently about him right now. Hell, LaFell had a decent rookie year too, putting up about the same stats as Gettis did, and you see how that worked out for LaFell, he's the #2 guy. Gettis could easily be right there in that discussion. I know, it's a what if situation but that's how I feel.

Unfortunately though, injuries are a part of the game and the injury bug hit Gettis at the worst possible time. I think he could have played in some games last year but they held him out as a precaution. I don't think he was ever in any doghouse. So by the time TC gets here, he will have had 2 full years for his ACL to fully recover. If it stays strong, I do believe he will make the roster.

Meh. Gettleman made his hay in pro personnel. He looked at the guys we had on the roster and then went out looking very hard for a new receiver. Tells me all I need to know.


Yeah that we need better return specialists. Both Hixon and Ginn are that. They aren't known for their wide receiver prowess...

Hixon wasn't signed to play special teams.

Also, we spent a large majority of our pre-draft workouts on wide receivers, most in the 1st to 3rd round range. That's a lot of return specialists.

Well this is a simple answer. That was 2010, and we are in 2013. It's a what have you done for me lately league.

Oh and before it is brought up, yes I think it is bullshit that Armanti Edwards has gotten so many chances.

I like Lamont Bryant.

I like David Gettis.

I don't like either of them enough to pass on using a high pick on a receiver.

Exactly. If we take a WR at 14, chances are he comes into camp as our 3rd best WR. Hellz, whatever position our pick plays. Chances are he upgrades the position. I am all for whatever makes us better.

We've interviewed ten receivers while preparing for the draft. That makes me think he wants to add one badly.
