1 - Smith LaFell Hixon
2 - LaFell Hixon Gettis
3 - Hixon Gettis Ginn Adams
I feel like when im looking at my weapons, that is how I will attack. Smitty and LaFell will stand out the most as the most complete players who Cam is already very comfortable with. The talk of LaFell not getting separation is nonsense to anyone that has seen how shifty he is. LaFell is also generally a "safe" player to throw the ball to in that he is very agile in the air, has great hands, he's big, he fights to take the ball down and shields well. He's a decent runner with the ball too btw which gets him some of that sweet sweet yac. He may not have huge gaps of separation and he may not get a lot of yac but he gets enough.
Hixon will get the job done, but he's going to have to learn the offense with a new QB that has to learn him. I think Gettis could be the better talent and would think he would be useful as a gunner on ST's as well if not anyways. We're going to find out about him this year. The next highest odds for me goes to Armanti. Substitute his name in for Gettis if #12 plays scared. There's really no reason I can see why he cant succeed at this level. He's just not my favorite option when looking at what Ive seen so far. Pilares is right there with him. There could be something there but certain areas have to improve for both of them before they can be relied on in this offense.
If Ginn turns out to be what we've been seeing all along then he's here for only ST's and I will bump Adams up that list of slot guys. I think he's been unlucky in games so far and he was trying to do too much. It's too early to cut him I think but if he doesnt do well do you go ahead and drop him in the PS. Not sure, but I think its going to be someone that can do something on ST's that wins that last spot. Of the remaining bunch who could win the 6th spot if we keep 6 I think. . Adams is the best pure runner fumbling aside, Pilares is the fastest at top speed and is the most secure runner, and Armanti is the most natural receiver.
Bryant or Moss or anyone of those other guys could come in and show something special and that could throw the whole board off. The guys that have been around and know the offense have much better odds at securing a spot as opposed to just showing up big. If you fug up on game day, youre useless.
oh yah and . . . 89, bottom line
