I don't know why people think LaFell is such a horrible #2 wide receiver. He blocks, he catches the ball mostly, and he runs good routes. Smitty-Moose WR tandems don't fall out of the sky like gringos, and they aren't very commonplace in the NFL. If your #2 is the superstar y'all want him to be, he'll only be your #2 until his first contract opportunity, then he'll bolt to go somewhere else, which is exactly what Moose did here, and a slew of others have done over the history of the league. Greg Olsen is actually our #2 receiving option even though he's a TE, which makes LaFell #3, and Ginn #4. We could be doing a lot worse as far as receiving options go. Add in Tolbert who is a fuging bowling ball that catches really, really well out if the backfield, and you'll see Cam has a decent arsenal at his disposal.
he's not. mouth breathers that don't know anything about football but post loudly think roddy white/julio jones-type combos are the norm rather than the exception. lafell is squarely middle-of-the-pack as far as #2WRs in the NFL go. of course it'd be nice to see him separate with more consistency but it's not like he's the useless shitbird some make him out to be either
