I appreciate the fact that we have a solid TE, but the point was that we have needed a quality threat at WR for more years than not while Smitty was on an island. Like I said before, the article mentions TEs and RBs as being productive in this offense in the past, but some of you talk like adding a legitimate downfield threat at WR opposite Smitty and having a pass catching TE that kinda fills the role of a WR1-2 is mutually exclusive. It's not.
IMO, just because Cam threw for x amount of yards, or the wide-out's or RBs caught this many passes, blah blah blah, doesn't mean that the offense was running on all cylinders or playing up to it's theoretical potential.
People bring up the Pats in this situation, but they are really exhibit one as to why a super talented team needs to finish the deal, and acquire that second threat at WR. The last good look they had at a ring was when they had Moss and Welker. Our division rivals (Falcons and Saints) are really exhibits B and C as to why that second threat at WR is necessary to achieve maximum offensive efficiency in today's NFL. Give me one team that has gone to the mountaintop with one threat at WR, only complemented by one good to great pass-catching TE. Give me just one.
Say what you want, but our passing game has been a broken-winged bird for years. That's just the way I see it.
