The mindset that anyone's position is guaranteed should be flawed in my opinion. Every single player on this team should have to earn their spot week in and week out. In baseball, if your pitcher is giving up homers and has an ERA of 7.34, you wouldn't keep him in rotation with a guy who has a 1.14 ERA in the bullpen, would you? In soccer, only the best 11 start, with people who produce in practice and scrimmage on the bench chomping at the bit to take their spot.

 

Why is it that for some, some players are guaranteed anything? They should be earning it every single time they step out on the field - including Cam, Smitty, DLo, Gross... everyone. If they aren't, they aren't hungry, and I don't want guys who aren't hungry representing our team. You don't make the playoffs that way. You get consolation "well, we finished the season strong" trophies from the band boosters that way.

Gettis>>>>Armanti

Gettis is A LOT faster, and he's actually caught a TD pass before.

I'm hurtin' over here. lololololol

 

We have some fraud potential going on this preseason. The dust will settle and Mr.Edwards will be better than he was but worse than the top 4 options. Nevertheless as a WR/and actually catching the return, he's been more productive than Pilares and Adams. I say cut Pilares and Adams and we should be set at WR/ST

Has yet to catch a pass from Cam Newton hmmmm with Cam being the starter that might be important. Ill say it again I like Gettis but if you think he's challenging Lafell your crazy. He isn't even playing against starters yet.

 

That fact sort of gets lost with everybody slobbering all over themselves. I put zero stock in what Jaw Person writes but I'm glad Gettis is stepping up.

I don't understand why people need to number the receivers given that they frequently put more than two in. You will know how they rank at the end of the season.

 

that's the bottom line. the only people that find any significance in trying to rank these players are huddle geeks and fanboys like us.

 

It just doesn't get any better than the old      WR(insert name)>>>>>>>WR(insert name)  does it?

At the rate Gettis is going he will take Lafells spot sooner than later, if it wasnt for him getting hurt it would have been his all along. Thats a fact.

But he has played against starters and played better than lafell in the past.

It's not like Gettis is a rookie.

By the past you mean 3 years ago....when he showed he could go vertical better than LaFell and LaFell showed he was better at everything else?

LaFell isn't a sexy WR....his ceiling isn't as high as some guys. But oh we mayne...people be drinking da haterade when it comes to him. He is solid

Dam I agree with you again.

 

People think WR only job is to catch passes. They don't see the downfield blocking Lafell does to spring big runs. Or the route running he does as a decoy to get other people open.

 

 

I would also liked to point out. That Lafell compared to other number 2 WR get very little targets. 

He gets 77 targets and Julio Jones gets 145. 

 

My main Problem with Cam is he needs to trust and give more shots to the other WR not name Smith and Olsen. Even when it seem like they are Covered. 

 

Bolden never gets separation and is never completely open but he still gets targeted. Cam has to learn to trust that his other WR can make a plays for him to.

 

Now I think Gettis has earned a shot at the 3rd Wr competition but Lafell has locked down the 2 spot for this year and has atleast earned a little trust from Cam.

 

How long would it take Gettis to get to that point with Cam??

I will be pissed if Gettis doesn't get the #3 spot...forget about it if he gets cut, I'll be uber pissed.  Gettis was better than Lafell before his injury, and given time with the starters I think he could very well end up being better than Lafell this year.

If healthy, Gettis is better than Lafell. It is what is it.

Until you can prove that in some quantitative manner you are spouting unfounded opitions.

 

 

If Gettis can 1)Stay Health, 2) get comparable minutes, 3) Produce better mins, and finally contribute to the offense other than going vertical then you can make some kind of arguement.

 

Lafell ranked roughly middle of the pack for #2 WRs and contributes nicely to the run game down field.

He is a very nice #2 WR and for people to say other wise makes them look football dumb.

 

gettis had 3-4 really nice games his rookie year and since has had the easiest job in football, being on IR and going to rehab for his injuries all the while adding absolutly nothing to the team other than being some negative cap space.

At least we should have a competitive group of WR's. Gettis is going to get the best out of Tedd Ginn and LaFell knows he'll need to step up big time if he doesn't want to be demoted. Not that we are at that point but if Gettis keeps striving I could see it happen.

^See smart thinking here.

 

Instead of ragging on Lafell because he what he isn't why cant we be happy that Gettis a nice surprise and helps the unit as a whole get better.
