#3283279 What's wrong with this?

It looks to me like teams that have less talented QBs have to make up for that by over paying for more talented WRs.

I've always felt like a good QB can make a average WR look way more talented than he really is. Just look at the Pats, Packers, Steelers, Colts with Manning, Broncos with Manning, Saints and Seahawks. These are the teams that build their WR corp via the draft. When they do trade for a player or sign a FA it's usually not the big names the get signed by the Bills and Texans and Jags. Then then get cut when they no longer have Rogers at el throwing to them.

I'm all for signing a good #2 option. And there are some options out there that I wish DG was targeting. But if your point is that DG NEEDS to get Cam better WRs then I don't want Cam as my QB for the long haul.

However I don't think Cam is that type of QB. Based on what I've seen he does make WR look good. And he doesn't NEED to surrounded by a bunch of high profile, high prices FAs. Give him better field position (Ginn) and more time in and out of the pocket (Oher) and he will be turning Brown into the next overpaid NYJ WR.

Hurney's claim to fame was his ability to work the cap and hitting on 1st round picks. Notice I said work the cap not manage it. This ultimately lead to his downfall. To much pushing money around and lead it blew up in his face.

While his track record after the 1st round was close to horrible, I can't think of another GM is recent time that was able to get it right that often and for that long in the 1st. Of course DG has added 2 more years to that streak which makes me wonder how much of that was Hurney and how much was it the scouts.

I agree with most of the comments above. Overall the team as a whole has improved and IMO the WR Corp, Interior OLine and Secondary are all better units than last year. Especially the secondary.

Decoud, Harper, Godfrey, White and Cason together as a unit will work far better together. The problem I felt a lot last season was that Captain and Mitchell seemed to free lance too much. Every now and then they would make a big play but more often they were out of position. I could be wrong but this new unit I see working much more like one unit rather than 5 individuals.

I also see the same (sort of) with the WR corp. probably less big play potential but much more consistent and Cam might not have to get every 3rd down conversion with his legs.

#2522054 Time to game plan for Taints big TE and WR....what's our strategy?

TD needs to spy Graham. He's one of the few LBers in the NFL that is big enough and fast enough and has the coverage skills to cover him. You take away Graham and that offense becomes much more ordinary.
