In Topic: With these one year deals won't we be in the same situation we were this...

The Problem with a One-Year "Prove it deal" is that if they prove it, you have to pay them the big bucks.. we don't have big bucks due to cap situation and therefore when players perform to get that big payday someone other than us will give you that money, and most likely overpay (See M. Mitchell)


In Topic: Ron Rivera: Panthers may not need number 1 WR in 2014

The Giants had Nicks and Manningham when Cruz showed up. The Seahawks had Tate and Rice.

 

These teams drafted WRs in high rounds to build their team on when they lucked into these diamonds in the rough. They didn't bank their entire success as a team on UDFAs turning into Victor Cruz.

 

But all those 4 WRs you mentioned have been shipped off since then (Although Manningham now is back after flopping in SanFran), if a #1WR is so god damn important, why aren't they keeping those guys around since they drafted them to build around them? Maybe because they were decent WRs whose numbers could easily be replaced by cheaper options via late draft picks such as Kearse and Baldwin.

 

If you can get a true nr. 1 guy of course you take him, but if you're drafting to get Nicks or Sidney Rice or Golden Tate, i think you have almost as good a chance to get them in later rounds as you do in the first, leaving you to take the best player available in the first round at positions where you believe finding a star is possible, be that a Lineman, Defensive back or an entirely third position

Thank you for making my point. Now, name a WR on our roster as good as any of those guys.

 

Thats the point, who knows what we have? No one knew Victor Cruz would be that, no one knew Doug Baldwin would be that.. these guys were undrafted and expected to be at best Practice Squad fodder yet have more rings and more catches in super bowls than Calvin Johnson, Andre Johnson, Brandon Marshall or any of the #1WRs currently in the league that people are so obsessed that we can only get in the first round

 

I'm not expecting Marvin McNutt or Tavares King to be Calvin Johnson, but if Doug Baldwin, Victor Cruz or Hakeem Nicks is the goal, then they have a shot to be at that level

 You are not going to win the NFL without a semblance of a #1 WR. 

 

So who was a #1 WR on the Seahawks last year? Jermaine Kearse? 

Who was #1WR on the Ravens the year before? Anquan Boldin?

And #1WR on the Giants the year before that? Leading reciever was Hakeem Nicks?

 

In the past 5 years SuperBowls leading recievers (for the winning team) have been:

 

Doug Baldwin, Anquan Boldin, Hakeem Nicks, Jordy Nelson and Marques Colston

 

None of whom i would call top 10 surefire #1 WRs in the NFL
