    Interested in your opinions.

    I think it is a combination of Brady having a subpar start along with below average receivers.

    Brady - he is getting too many balls batted down. He is also off on a number of his throws. I wonder if he is hurt.

    Receivers - everyone expect Troy has been invisible. Chad Jackson has all the makings of the next U of Florida bust.

    well there are 2 sides to every coin.

    There happens to be 2 sides to this situation as well.

    Either we sign a new receiver
    Or we decide not to.

    Those are the 2 options. We will choose 1 of the 2. But not both.

    I hope we decide to. We do not have a down field threat right now. Good teams are going to crowd the line and take away the run.

    well we have 2 options.

    Run the ball and pass the ball..... we can do one or the other but not both at the same time.

    No need to bring in another receiver, lets just work on getting Chad Jackson up to speed.

    I say no. Plenty of receivers to work in over the break.

    what are the chances of us having a new offensive coordinator by the bye week??

    hopefully very very very high.

    What are the chances Chad Jackson is going to be a bust? I think pretty good at this point.

    I doubt it and even if we do will it be a player worthy of signing? (Johnathan Smith & Bam Childress for example-just a moving in and out of roster player) - You all know we are not gonna pay top dollar for a receiver or we would have kept Deion another year or so....so if we do sign someone,he's gonna be either working at Walmart right now before getting a call from Bill or cut by a bad team (Charles Rogers for example) - Forget the idiotic Randy Moss or Jerry Porter trade crap,they won't come here for pocket change and a 1 yr contract which is why Deion and David are gone,You're gonna get a bottom dollar no name receiver if anything which won't help the cause-As Bill Would Say 'The Receiving Core Is What It Is'.

    Yeah, this is probably true because the first few games is a pretty good indicator of how a player is going to pan out.

    Thus I can safely say that Marvin Harrison was a bust and Terry Glenn was the best WR of all-time.

    I think we've got greater concerns. And, "yes," I do believe we might pick up another receiver. We certainly need to.

    I've decided that I want Moss on this team.

    He isn't what he used to be in terms of skills, but we need that depth at WR.

    Saban's game plan on defence was pretty clear today: stop the run and force Brady to throw to his receivers. They definitely exposed the weakest part of our offense. If this isn't a wakeup call telling us to pick up another receiver, I don't know what is.

    I'm sure that Brady and his current crop of receivers will continue to work together over the next two weeks, but we need a good deep threat. We've got to be able to spread the defence a bit. I sure hope we will pick up somebody over the break.

    Moss won't play here for Bam Childress money - Case Closed - We are likely saving $$$ for Samuel and Graham extensions among others who are FAs next year.

    Yup, a bust. Kind of like this guy:

    28 receptions
    329 yards
    1 td



    Or this guy:

    10 receptions
    154 yards
    0 td



    And this guy:

    15 receptions
    246 yards
    0 td

























    Those are Chad Johnson, Steve Smith, Hines Ward's rookie numbers, respectively. :bricks:
