I love the WRX. I had an STi five years ago. Can't beat the combination of power, handling, and cornering


The new ones are amazing. I have a Legacy almost paid off. Almost certain I'll get a STI companion for it.

After owning a Subaru I cannot imagine owning another car. The new STI's are dope as fug.

This thread, though about Boykin, is not just about Boykin. It's about trying to upgrade the team (with limited resources, as you should already know). But for argument's sake, my reply is going to focus on Boykin.

I don't necessarily think that Boykin was brought here to be one of our main guys, but let's say that for some very odd reason we don't draft any receivers or add any more receivers before the season starts---meaning that our receiving corps today is the one that we end up with during 2015---I can make an argument that Jarrett Boykin is the second best receiver on the squad right now. Granted, others might not be able to see it, but I can. That being said, let's get back to the real world.

In the real world, Boykin has the possibility to be a pretty significant upgrade from the WR3 spot on down, and anyone should consider that a good thing. As for another higher grade of weapon, we will have to rely on the draft and/or hope that Greg Jennings or some other FA (between now and September) with those credentials or upside is signed by the team.


If Greg Jennings signs with the Panthers, disregard anything I've said on the matter. I may have interpreted what Rivera said differently. I just want us to get a reliable (and CONSISTENT) threat. I believe we have the means and capacity to do that. Appreciate the response and your explanation of the quotes though.

You, very obviously, missed the entire point.


I don't think I did. This has been a familiar trend the last few seasons. Signing no names (I am aware Boykin is a good Special Teamer) and hoping they turn the corner into something else is not a good strategy. It's worked for a couple players but that is the minority.

I understand giving Boykin a chance at WR but he was brought in here for ST. Keep overlooking the glaring weakness that our offense is. It's time to give Cam legitimate weapons.
