It sounds like he is telling fans we will not be bringing in a big time option at WR. Says if we are going to run the ball our receivers as a group only 10 catches a game citing last years numbers.

 

I hope he does not truly believe that last years WR results are OK. He also left open the possibility of drafting  multiple WRs

in before smokescreen.

 

 

but I said this in another thread, they want a clock killing offense, not a 40 point a game offense.

To me, the truth is our offense was anemic and was just bad at times. More of the same will not win us more games no matter how good our defense is. Cam running for life is not a running game

I was very disappointed that he does not acknowledge that having your qb run every time you need a yard  is not an offensive philosophy but rather weakness that we need to address,

Because Cam is the entire run game, sadly.

You could read the tea leaves when the offseason started... Gettleman and Rivera think they can buck the trend and ride one of the worst offenses in the NFL (due to philosophy, mostly) to another successful year. WRONG. You are not going to win the NFL without a semblance of a #1 WR. And you are definitely not going to win as a run team with little ability to threaten the opponent in the pass game.

Smh... I just dont understand what it is with our franchise... everytime we get a revolutionary, game changing player, we stubbornly refuse to build around that strength and take advantage of their abilities, and in turn, waste their potential and talent when we could be winning championships with it instead...

Idiots.

If we don't get Cam the weaponz, he'll take his talents to Souff Beach!!!

You would think after watching us go 6-10 with 'the most retarded show on turf' offense that scored a lot, and then watching the Seahawks demolish a high scoring team in the Super Bowl that you guys would warm up to a run first offense.

Do you really think Rivera doesn't notice the problems on offense? If we draft well in OL and WR and the O looks just like last years, then I'll bitch.

Well we can't run the ball considering we don't need an OL either

The Seahawks have a legitimate run game, we don't. Their offense also capitalizes when their defense puts them in position to make plays.
