Sorenson says Gettis "Perpetually" Open in Tuesday's Camp.

Recommended Posts

Seriously guys, who here would be really that concerned if we let pilares and joe adams walk. Also consider that drafting a top tier WR will be a priority next year.

 

The way the roster is looking we are in the now, what can you do for me now not later. Pilares has been here too long with no real impact, like AE, but AE is now on the rise with no honorable mentions going to pilares. Adams has fallen off the radar as well Yes we just drafted him, but teams can't keep everyone they draft for 2-3 years before the cut.

 

Smitty, Lafell, Ginn, Hixon, AE, and Gettis. Your 6 WR's.

 

I would agree with this. For various reasons, I believe these are your 6 Wide Receivers going into the first game. 

 

And (Shriek), I could easily see the team getting rid of Armati before Adams (due to his potential, only one season vs Armati's 3), though I know it won't happen, after his great training camp and exciting the fan base.

By this logic, we shouldn't have kept TD on the roster last year, cause at that point he hadn't done anything in a while.

Yeah, when able to get on the field....Davis has proven that he may be the best LB on the field. No debate about what TD is when healthy and on a field.

Not sure how that compares to a guy who became a legend on 3 catches.....who defenses probably weren't that concerned with.

I could see us keeping 7 if Ginn keeps being Ginn. Gettis has yet to play against the ones so I'm not ready to jump on that boat yet.

Could Hixon go on the PUP so we can stash him for the first 6 games without having to cut him? That way if there is any injury, we have a backup ready to come in.

I would not be surprised to see Adams either traded (Goodson to Raiders, for example) or put on IR.

 

Hixon could be cut, but Gettlemen brought him in because Gettis was not getting it done.  Gettis has to overcome that.

True, but you must also consider that Cam is the best QB on the roster to take advantage of Gettis' speed. Hopefully we'll see something tonight.

That's a bit ridiculous. Goodson got more than one season to prove himself, or not prove himself as it ended up being of course. With all the time Armanti and even Gettis have gotten, Joe deserves one more season.

Doesn't matter who 1 and 2 are....

If your most legit competition in a decade is who your 3 or 4 WR is....that is weak. Smitty should be a 2 at this stage but we have neglected WR

oh yes...the great "neglected wr" opinion.

Tell me where and when we had the opportunity to add a receiver better than steve smith.

You people are crazy for wanting to cut Hixon. He made tons of plays and some really nice catches last year when given PT. I could see him easily par with Lafell if healthy (which he is projected to be this year correct me if im wrong)

Gettis is just to physically gifted and produced when given pt and healthy. Cant cut him.

I need to see Edwards do something in a real game more than once to anoint him.

Right now my WR depth chart would look like this.

Smith

Lafell

Hixon

Gettis

Edwards

Ginn

Adams

Pilares

We need to give Pilares the boot and keep 7. However I could live with Adams being let go as well.

hixon. The player that is new to our offense, and hasn't been practicing?

He is a vet, but I don't feel he has any advantage over edwards and gettis at this point. Not in our system.

That may change, but not before regular season begins.

Um, we have had plenty of opportunities over the last DECADE to of had a better #2 WR on the field than we did from 2004-2013. 

 

Your question of flawed....in this offense Mike Wallace for example would be a better #1 WR.  Smitty would be the better overall WR who in addition could capitalize on a WR young enough to legitimately take the top off a D.

 

Are you honestly suggesting over the last decade.....we couldn't of done a better job and actually had legit competition w/ better players for the #1 and #2 spots?

Hixon has the advantage over those two because he's proven to produce during the regular season for years, something neither of those guys can say.

its funny how training camp is....one minute its dead quite and you are in danger of being cut...one good game and a few practice later and you are the hottest name in camp and a lock to make the team.

Hixon also has proven to have the injury bug in his DNA....even Gettlemen has commented about those type players.

Not sure were going to cut Adams just after one season, remember how many years we kept Edwards?  

Hixon was brought in incase of Gettis.  Hixon Has produced in the past but has also had some injuries in the past as well.  Hixon hasn't done much in camp and has been hurt.  Gettis shows up and Adams doesn't just implode, Hixon gets cut imo.

 

6 WR's- Smith, Lafell, Edwards, Gettis, Ginn, Adams.
