N'Keal Harry, Julian Edelman, Damiere Byrd, Jakobi Meyers, with Gunner Olszewski coming off IR soon and a good developmental guy in Kristian Wilkerson on the practice squad... how many WR's can you roster? The answer is 5 to 6... max.
This ^ is a good group. Get Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene involved and you have a great collection of talented receiving options. They need a DT or a real difference maker along the D-Line, that will actually help them win games. They just threw for 400 yards on Sunday night, enough with the "lack of weapons" obsession.
Harry is not suffering from a lack of separation... it was a load of crap. He needed reps, targets, health and a QB who believed in him, all the young WR's (Meyers, Gunner, even Byrd) need that. The passing game is healthier than it's been in at least two years, it can exploit and nuture young talent. It doesn't require an obscene amount of trust or mental telepathy or a secret unspoken language. Edelman hasn't suffered from a lack of this either, so don't tell me it was necessary, he's off to a career best start.
Harry is a beast, keep him healthy, feed him a steady diet of targets. The rest will take care of itself.
Ranked 8th in passing yards, new QB finding his way... good so far. Stay healthy.I'm cautiously optimistic but I think you're over-romanticizing here a bit. There is potential in that group. Wether that translates into it being a good group is not something that can be judged either way at this point.
It's a terrible comparison, Jakobi Meyers is a younger Sanu.
Harry has much more talent and upside than Sanu ever possessed.
Harry isn't 6'4, but 6'2 1/2.
I blame your boy Skippy for that. His average yards per attempt is less than 2 yards. Enough with the jet sweeps and end arounds where defenders are surrounding him as he catches the pass. Skippy has set him up to fail with those. However, Harry's best drive was the last drive of the game where he caught 2 or 3 balls and almost scored the game winner. Harry showed a lot of toughness in that game on Sunday especially after taking that cheap shot in the head and holding onto the ball with that 3rd down catch.8.5 yards per catch...Whoop-de-damn-doo...
