You take away aj green we have one of the worst receiving core in the nfl. eli struggled with nicks hurt.
rodgers was a little shaky without jennings for awhile. steelers struggled without brown.

So basically you take anyone's number 1 WR away and they don't do as well is what your saying? I think everyone would agree with that. I just think to many people are focusing on WR and think that will fix the problems with this team. I just see it different. I think better play calling, a change of pace RB, and upgrading the Interior line (especially Center) is needed a lot more. On top of those things I feel if Dalton then plays better the talent we have a WR will be much more obvious to everyone. Let's see Green, Sanu, and Jones all on the field next year with an upgraded line, a better RB, and Dalton playing with more confidence like earlier this past season. Ideally we would have picked up Carl Nicks and Reggie Wayne last offseason but it's not how this team works. We only have so many picks and don't spend money on big FA so it is a matter of the young guys already here and what positions need the biggest upgrades. You guys feel WR and I feel we have more talent at that spot than most others.

Take off your homer glasses people and realize this is a problem. If we didnt have a great defense we would finish like the lions. A number 1 wide receiver like aj needs some help.
Thank you for saying that because on these forums we have a common misconception that every rookie on our team will give you 1,000 yards just like people thought binns and tate were going to be good -__-

Dalton took alot more sacks this year you know why? Because he had to eat the ball alot more due to nobody being open. Dont give me it was the lines fault. 75 percent of the sacks dalton took was due to the fact nobody was open. You need more than 1 receiver in the NFL. when dalton started playing better. Was due to sanu emerging as a redzone threat gave him another target besides aj. Sanu wasnt getting seperation except in the redzone. Marvin jones hasnt been getting any separation period. He played ok against steelers but that was against their number 4 corner and frankly he should have done alot more considering the match up.

disagree. AD has had no problems getting AJ 1300 yards this season. give him more weapons at WR and TE and he can be great. Manning, Brady, Rodgers all have good to great WRs and TEs while we have a TE with hands of stone and 1 great WR and a half dozen poor to mediocre WRs.

imagine if dalton had mario manningham or miles austin opposite of AJ to throw to as well as a dallas clark or Gronk?

teams double teamed AJ all the time knowing that we did not have a legit #2 as a threat for them to worry about.

They need a real veteran #2 WR. Sick of waiting on 3rd round picks to "develop" and "stay healthy"

Whalen and Sanu are both like that.

I'm still not sold on Sanu.. if you take the 5 games where he finally started getting catches and project them over a 16 game season, it is only 51 catches for 493 yards.. while 3 of his 4 TDs came from the worst and third worst team in the entire league in 2012 (Raiders and Chiefs).

51 catches, 493 yards, 13 TDs screams more to me "redzone receiver" rather than true #2 threat.. or even a #3 Housh possession-type receiver.

I would love to sign Bowe as a FA, but if a trade is the only choice, I guess Davone Bess..... Bess would be a great possession type reciever, good for getting first downs and shouldn't cost much.

Sanu is hurt and Whalen is totally unproven. Simple logic dictates that instead of staking the season on gambling that players will immediately return 100% from injuries or totally unproven players will pan out we get a proven veteran to make sure we don't have this gap next season too.

Personally, I think we have the receivers we need in Sanu and MLJ. If we do have to find a #2 outside of the roster, the best move would be a short-term contract to a veteran while the aforementioned Sanu and MLJ develop. To be honest, we should've been more pro-active in getting a veteran rental #2 this year so Sanu and MLJ could've spent this season learning before being thrown directly into the line of fire.

That's really all some of us are looking for - a proven veteran possession receiver who can cover the middle and/or endzone and be a reliable outlet target. He doesn't have to be Megatron II just someone who runs routes correctly and hangs on to the ball.

I would take some of these guys by a little over what we have, but we have too many glaring holes elsewhere to prioritize WR this year. If they somehow land a top LB (or 2?), a good FS, and bring back Johnson/Smith and can still go after one of these guys... then sure.

Hawkins we have already Seen his Celling...

M Jones might develope into a Henry type WR (not as good but used in a similar way)

The star WRs we have are Sanu and Green.. Sanu might be a slot guy. But #2 WR doesnt refer to who plays X or Y it refers to who gets the Catches. And that will probly be Sanu.

Now if we want someone to play opposite of Green i dont see how Sanu doesnt work.

Sanu = TJ Green = Chad (as a comparsion) Sanu's stats arent great but he didnt get used hardly at all this year minus a few games and 1 pass.

We can Grab Another WR to put on the Outside which will be great because then we can use Sanu inside and never have to throw a ball to Gresham again.

so because i did not know hartline is a FA, i have no idea what im talking about? i have every right to talk about this, all you can do is correct me and go on from there, but you feel the need to tell me what to do and when and etc, etc.

Bet that makes you feel good about yourself doesnt it.

How about you be quiet and not be such an arsehole!!!

Im just a fan, Not an espn analyst like i evidentally have to be to be able to discuss things on here
