Just for some perspective - not using this to make an argument either way:

 

LaFell was the 52nd ranked wide receiver in yards/game and 60th in total receptions in 2012.

He's the 41st ranked wide receiver in yards/game and receptions this year.

The average #2 receiver would rank 48th.

LaFell should get at least 25% credit for that TD. That was an awesome block.

 

Lafell 25% for great blocking

D-Will 40% for great speed and field visions

Tolbert 5% for great fake

Cam Newton 10% for selling first fake and making good pass

Travelle Wharton 20% for having a great block.

Like others have said, the biggest issue for Lafell is consistency at this point - but I think he's continuing to develop and become less inconsistent. None of that means we should hold the # 2 WR spot open for him if someone better comes along, but he does have the ability to be an excellent # 2 receiver in our offense.

Stats are for losers...................most WRs are stars and stat chasers.............

 

As a head coach of a team I want a WR that is certainly capable of the catch and yards after gained...........but more importantly I want a WR who is totally committed to the team for winning a game.........even if it means they spend most of the time of the field in blocking schemes and running decoy routes.

 

This is not a game of the individual..........

 

If Lafell is that kind of team WR as I've defined above then in this role then we have a winner......as you can continue to fine tune his skill set much easier than change the attitude of a WR star of stats who sees the team in competition with that star.

Donald LaFell....18.3 yard per carry average.

despite earning 0% credit...

 

that clip also shows the effort Kalil puts in to getting downfield.  Looked like he blew a wheel but his effort on those is awesome.

Yes, I know.  As an Offensive line coach, I would applaud his effort and laugh at his results.

People are way too hard on LaFell. He's not likely ever going to be a #1 wideout but you could do much worse at #2 and would have to be fortunate to do better. Hell, people were ready to throw money at Nicks last year and he'd be happy to have LaFell's production this season.

 

You could do much better, too. You're #2, like you're #1, needs to do one thing above everything else, and that's catch the ball when it's thrown in your direction. I don't care if you're #1 is your home run threat and your burner, even if you're not the dynamic receiver on the squad you still have to be counted on to make a play. And no one with a drop rate like LaFell can be a quality #2 or even a mediocre #1. Until he proves he's got the ability to go up and fight for a ball, and (this one drives me nuts) catch the easy ones, I'd hesitate to look at him as a viable #2.

 

As of right now, he's good, but easily replaceable, and I certainly wouldn't pass up a quality WR in the hopes that LaFell would develop into that role.

I think his blocking is underrated.  That isn't easy to find in WRs.

 

I think based on our current O....he is a solid 2.  Our current O isn't as pass oriented as others

Exactly.  I'm not trying to say where he should be on the depth chart rather just that he's a good asset to have.  I'm all for keeping him but it shouldn't restrict us from finding at least 2 guys to have ahead of him.

Lafell's blocking has won us games.  His blocking has sprung big plays, yesterday was not the first time he has done that. Lafell is the guy on a basketball that hustles, deflects balls, and sets great screens. None of that will come up on a stat sheet, but it's vital to a teams success. Should he be our #1 guy...no. I doubt he ask for a big contract and his play warrants him staying.
