We drafted 5 wr's in the previous 3 drafts, but yeah we totally should have taken a late round flyer on some guy in the middle of our draft board.

 

If Jarrett, Robinson, or any of those five worked out we would not even be talking about this.  Jarrett would still be under thirty.  He had just as much if not more production than all of these fools in the draft this year.  He was a bum in the league though.  I am glad someone sees that we have not completely negated the position.  I am overjoyed that we are not the Lions.  I trust the talent evaluators who saw something that said do not take a flyer on these recievers. I cannot believe people thought we should have wasted picks on guys in the late rounds either.  Bringing in competition is not good enough for our defensive backfield, but it is exactly what we should have done by drafting mid-rounders for WR.  Huddle logic makes my head hurt.

they steadily add talent.

the point is they made the effort to get weapons around their QB. Steve smith stats with the giants where better then what you put down. also you called Hakeem a #2 WR,if so what is LaFell? Randle began to take playing time from Hixon last year who the panthers are using as a #3.

Waaaah... I want it all, now! Jesus. We aren't 1 WR away from winning it all this year. Let Gettleman build up/sort out the damn roster. You people are caricatures.

 

You never know...no one would have thought we were a couple players away in 2003....Jake, Davis, Prohel didn't appear to be pieces to put us over the top.

 

Seattle didn't think Russell Wilson was the answer to a deep postseason run last year

Our WR position doesn't seem to be a position of strength. We are rolling the dice on an aging legend, glorified smurfs, projects, and---to be nice---WR2-3 hybrids.  That's the way it is for now---the cold hard truth.  Let's hope Lady Luck is working in our favor this year.

Exactly. The point is that effort was made a look they have two superbowls to show for it.

People always dismiss criticism from "experts" but the honest truth is that we have never had back to back winning seasons we deserve every bit of it.
