By the numbers:

4 receptions. 6 targets. 13 yards. Longest reception 12 yards.

You do the math.


At what point this season do we replace Lafell as the WR2?

Or is part of the blame on Newton for not finding him?

Lafell sucks. He has basically vanished from this offense in a matter of a year.

Lol at Smitty's comments prior to the season.

I guess Lafell was right, Armanti really is right on his heels for #2. Smh.


Oh wee mayne

I prefer to watch an end zone tape to see how often he has been open.  While he could be the problem, he does not target himself.

It's hard to watch the game and pick up on individual players like this...

 

 

I had the Buffalo game DVR'd to watch it again but I deleted it in disgust.

Brandon LaFell is on the Vince McMahon "You're Fired" List

He's not good enough. He's a #4

Not trying to be a Cam homer or apologist...but Jesus last time I checked he gave us the lead in all of these close heart breaking losses. Last time I checked he isn't on the field when the other teams drive down at will and score on our soft ass defense / secondary

A lot of his routes are longer developing routes, which Cam does not have time for (or he overthrows), and week 1 he was blanketed by Sherman.

 

For fug's sake. Stop overreacting to everything.

Kenny Britt is unhappy in Tennessee, might be worth a 4th.

While I understand he cannot throw the ball to himself, there is no possible way this guy is even been slightly open for the majority of either game.

Sure, Sherman was on him week 1....what about week 2?

Lafell is a flat out #4 in this league and that will not change. He has no upside, other than his blocking abilities.

He is a big body receiver trying to play a finesse game. He should play like Anquan Boldin but he is afraid to attack the ball.

Naw he ain't open. Part of Cam's problems is actually Lafell being on the field. I believe Cam really likes Lafell and looks for him on the field to try to get him the ball. I believe that was in the case on Cam's interception against the bills. Seemed like he just wanted to get Lafell the ball and made a poor decision.

Steve Smith made a cooment that when Lafell first got there he didn't see him as guy that would step up.

Lafell's biggest problem is that he can't get separation. Neither can Anquan Boldin but Boldin is more physical and attacks the ball.

I like Lafell but him being our #2 WR is a joke.

I love it when somebody posts my exact thoughts.

I find it harder to believe he has progessed, at all. He has hit his ceiling as a receiver in this league.
