    With Brady's plant leg still untested in live games I see him doing alot of dump off passes underneath the linebackers. I see Welker and Ventrone being recipients of this.

    I see Ventrone having 4 or 5 catches possibly. But I could be totally wrong.

    I don't see many long bombs. Maybe a few.

    That's because we don't have anyone to throw long bombs too besides Moss. Gaffney isn't exactly a deep threat to compliment #81.

    Surprise? Not really, but then I've been a "Bubba" cheerleader for a bit.

    I hope they give him opportunities because if given them I think he'll make plays. I could see him being the 4th wr by seasons end.

    I see Ventrone having 0 catches, in fact, I don't see him taking a snap on offensive.

    We'll see.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him get some run today. They'll take some shots down the field off of play-action I would imagine, but there will be a lot of stuff thrown underneath, which means a lot of Welker but also potentially a lot of 4 wide sets, and I could see Ventrone catching a couple balls out of those sets. He definitely seems like a potential YAC guy, given the way he runs (which is to say, more like a tailback than a receiver).

    Disable Jersey

    :confused:

    I thought Ventrone would be playing RG and serving as the backup QB?

    You could still be right (though with your track record lately...). :p

    Actually, I remember Kelley Washington getting some bombs during his time on the Bengals. He's no great receiver or anything, but besides, all we need is Moss for that anyway.

    As for Ray, I guess it just depends on whether or not they use him as a receiver today. I don't think we'll see him catch anything, to be honest. I'd be surprised if he were a spot above Washington on the depth chart.
