I think you are taking a bit too much poo for this statement. I don't necessarily agree but it is an interesting point. If there is value to be had at 28 and or 60 I think Gettleman will go WR but he is not wringing his hands saying we need to get a guy pronto. There are still a few cards remaining that need to be played.
It's about his collective posts over the past month more than just a single post.
I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't draft a WR until round 3 or 4. I think we need one round 1, round 2 at the latest depending on what Tackle is there at 28. I just don't know how much they value the position with this 10 catches talk. People talk about how bad the position was last year, but Gettleman let that play out. Who's to say he isn't content to do the same here if the goal is to simply "replace" the production of the previous group.
Why wouldn't you be surprised after only one draft under gettleman. You have no idea and no one does. You CHOOSE to believe this.
This notion that Steve Smith was because some of the receivers we drafted didn't work out is ludicrous.
Considering players like Drew Carter, Keary Colbert, and Dwayne Jarrett pretty much fizzled out of the league entirely shortly there after that should tell you all that you need to know. But no, apparently that blame falls on another player, not those individuals themselves.
Either these guys want it or they don't, that's all there is to it.
Dude duh but acting like mentoring doesn't help isn't realistic. Smitty got help from proehl and moose. He's talked about it at great lengths
