    Does anyone think that Bam could come up next season and fill the Stallworth type role?? Not the WR2 (obviously) and I know he is not as tall, but he and Donte have a similar style (both being able to make good moves in space and pick up good YAC).

    I could see Gaffney and Jackson battling for the WR2, with WWW staying in the slot where he is most dangerous.

    Bam has had a few years now to learn the system, and could be ready to contribute with the big club next season. He strikes me as a BB type of player. A "C" calibre guy, who Bill and brady can make produce like a B+.

    If Bam couldn't step it up last year, I doubt he's got much a role in this offense.

    Some young guys take a few years to mature. Especially in this system. Theres allot to learn. It was only his second season.

    no, and he wont have to...

    Moss(assuming he stays) is number 1,

    WW is obviously slot

    then Jabar and Chad take up number 2 spot....and the other comes in on 4 wide sets...

    either way, both jabar and chad i think well be able to take over for stallworth....easily too

    Stallworth is a first round pick, and has been in the league for six seasons... Childress was undrafted and has only played 3 games with the big club.

    That's not a fair comparison.

    I know. It's an insult to Stallworth to suggest that some scrub is going to come in and match his production.

    If you are looking for a guy on the team to take Donte's spot next year, look no further than......


    Mr. Chad Jackson.

    They don't even play the same position. Childress is an inside slot guy like Welker and Brown. He isn't particularly fast for an NFL receiver.

    Stallworth is an outside flanker with sprinters speed and great size. He stretches the field.

    Sorry, but really dumb question.

    Bam is a poor man's Welker/TBrown, not a Stallworth type, this is a role you would look to see Chad Jackson fill.

    I never said split out. I said Stallworth's "role". As in how they have used him in open space where he can make those nice moves ATC.

    I could count on one hand the number of times Stallworth has been used as a "burner" this season. That is not where his value has been.

    He's also made it through waivers multiple times, which speaks volumes of how he is perceived league wide. I love watching the guy in pre season, but I grasp that has little to do with performance capacity in the regular season where vanilla defenses are replaced by schemes to take weapons away. Teams have to respect Stallworth both because of his track record and the flashes of YAC we've seen in spurts this season.

    How do you think teams would play us if Randy were out for a couple of games and <insert player name here> was the #1...'cause that's what you all need to consider before you climb aboard the who needs Stallworth bandwaggon.

    Gaffney is a great 4th WR and a decent #2 in a pinch - but he's not signed for 2008. Hopefully they will resign him, perhaps at Washington's expense. And Mr. Chad Jackson had a hard time making good ball handling decisions on the PR/KR team as a fill in last week. If he intends to continue the rest the regulars down the stretch, I wouldn't be surprised to see old reliable activated this week to handle return duties.

    They can afford to keep Moss and Stallworth and Welker and Gaffney in tact for at least a couple of seasons. They do as much to lighten the load on D as any FA acquisition they could plug in for the money. The D is more about scheme with sufficient talent. This offense is about talent vs. any scheme.

    That doesn't even make sense. Stallworth has played the flanker all season. Childress doesn't. End of story.

    Anyone think Santonio Thomas could come up next season and fill the Junior Seau type role? Not the Sam linebacker, obviously, and I know he's not as fast, but he seems like he'd be a good run stuffer in our defense.

    Ohhhhhhh Bam Childress...

    Sam Cunningham is already being drafted elsewhere on the board for Maroney's job.
