Could someone help me out by explaining why King and McNutt, who couldn't see action on a team that boosted the 28th ranked passing attack, is supposed to be better than the WRs they could not beat out?

 

They didn't have training camp with us, probably didn't get a ton of reps with Cam at all, and were new to the NFL (McNutt was in his 2nd season, King a rookie).  It takes receivers time.  So they could be better than Lafell, Ginn, Hixon... We didn't get a ton of chance to see.

 

I don't expect them to be #1s, but you never know, they could be valuable this year.

This should be enough for 60% of the posters on here to STFU every time we don't sign some bum ass FA.

1. It takes WRs a bit of time to adjust to the NFL

2. They weren't born knowing the play book.

3. When you are winning, you do not change the lineup

Both of them have potential, but IMO I think their ceiling is a #2 WR

Based on their inability to get reps so far my guess is they are complimentary depth players at best. Hope is not a strategy. Wish these guys the best but I don't think the answer is currently on our roster.

Pretty sure with a name like McNutt, he will always be a punchline.

I actually like Mcnutt and King and think they both can be more than serviceable. Only thing I am worried about is Shula and the oline.
