Maclin is the best out of the bunch here and I would love to see him in stripes doing what he did in Philly when Vick was healthy and throwing the ball pretty good. I would also take Denarius Moore also being as he's a burner and has made a ton of big plays for Oakland with Carson throwing to him.

SHhhhhhhh ! Never tell anybody that I said this.

Antonio Brown would be sweet with AJ and my choice.

But even though this would be my choice. Hate the steelers way too much and would rather not.

Do think we need another WR though, per draft or FA. But unlike most others. Think Sanu is going to be real good and perfect compliment to AJ in the future.

I guess the two times he was wide open and Dalton did not see him, and the ball knocked out of Daltons' hand against the Texans doesn't count.

Jones has been open and not hit more than once, because of poor play at the Center Position.

emmanuel sanders devery henderson reggie cobb julian edelman jacoby jones all these are # 3 receivers better than any number 2 we have I could go on. The saints number 4 robert meachem is better than any receiver we have besides AJ. If this doesnt get addressed we wont make it out of the first round. if we even make it back.

as far as i know he got cut because of an injury. if he was healthy, he would have been on our roster this season.

why do we need to trade for an old WR?

Its not like we need a focus. a Vet is not the way to go, Stunts development of all the drafted guys from last 2 years.

We draft one IF it falls. Truth be told if we could cut the sacks in half would be a world of difference for the WR we have. I know its not popular but I would draft g/c fairly high.

I doubt he does, KC has Andy Reid now, Bowe is more talented than any receiver he's coached other than TO.



Anyway, I voted for Maclin, he's the best receiver on that team and has very reliable hands, plus he can take the top off of defenses.

Default Re: If the team were to trade for a #2 WR.........

when I look at the Bengals WRs, I don't see that pure burner that can blow the lid off a secondary.

we all know what Green is about
so I will move on

Sanu reminds me of a young Anquan Boldin. Strong upper body who can make tough catches in traffic and knows how to use his body.

Hawkins is more quick than fast. his lack of height hurts him. The throw has to be perfect.
he can reach and turn around but on over throws he's not gonna be able to sky for it.

Tate I still don't know about. when you are targeted once a game,theres not a large body of work.

Whalen to me is just another big effort guy. Good hands,but he's limited. Not fast,not quick has no change
of direction or wiggle after the catch.

Mike Wallace would be a perfect fit or Denarius Moore who would be alot cheaper.

another alternative is to find that blazer at RB who can catch a pass in the flat then create havoc under neath.
we haven't had a RB that could catch and create yards since 2005.

Never happen, but I'd love to see a trade for Larry Fitzgerald. Bengals have the cap room and Fitz is just wasting away on a team with no QB. A team with 3 playoff berths in 4 years might look attractive enough to want to re-work that huge contract.

All the Raiders WRs are up for Grabs...
Hawkins is also limited by an OC who can't figure out how to use him effectively.

id have to say the sacks would be cut in half If we had better linemen outside of Zeitler and Whitworth. Andre is ok but has only been above average this season IMO.

Although Andy's stats would be better if we had a VETERAN as a #2 and let our youngsters fight for the #3 or 4 spots.

young WRs after Aj on our team are expendable. just because they are on our team does not mean they are great. it seems to me that most of us as fans have the " NOW NOW NOW" attitude when it comes to winning and such but when we talk about bringing in a veteran for the #2 spot you contradict yourselves and revert back to "NO NO NO, let our young guys develop"

If anything, signing a vet would light a fire under the youngsters arses to practice harder and get better. ever think of that? maybe thats why andy is getting better quicker and maybe thats why carson regressed, because they didnt have a QB behind them that could/can effectively take their jobs away from them. when you have job security like carson did, there is no motivation to get better.

how can you wait for the young guys develop and still have a win now attitude?

He's most effective on crossing routes and bubble screens. That limits what you can do offensively when he's on the field. I like him, but not as a #3, more like a #5.

I would try to sign a veteran FA #2 WR. Then Sanu can move to the slot and you have Jones and Hawkins as your #4 and #5.

Gradkowski wasn't brought in to push Andy to get better. He was handed the backup spot to be a veteran mentor, since he was familiar with the Gruden system in Tampa. Gradkowski's probably a nice guy, but he'd have to actually be effective to effectively take Andy's job from him. Andy gets better because he has the drive to get better, and because he wasn't a 1st round QB so he has to earn his paycheck.

Grad could do the mentor thing as the 3rd QB, we need to bring in someone to keep Andy on his toes.

i meant to say why andy isnt getting better. was a typo. there were pleanty of other better
QBs out there to be a mentor. Jeff Garcia , Jake Delhome, Chad Pennington, Daunte Culpepper. somebody like those guys would have been a better mentor than bruce gradkowski.

which is why we should sign someone like alex smith to be the back up or kyle orton perhaps. David garrard wouldnt be a bad signing either. all 3 of those guys would be good enough to give andy a run for his money as starting QB or perhaps matt hasslebeck.
