Don't understand why just now 6'4 wrs are suddenly needed. Nothing happened last night that height would have solved. OBJ dropped the deep ball. Shepard dropped the deep ball. Landry was open on the slant all night but we didn't throw it as much as we should've. Don't get me wrong, I think we need some size at wr but I don't see what has all of a sudden made it worth starting a thread. None of the passes last night would've been better executed with a taller wr. Our guys were open or they weren't. Sometimes they were open and we didn't give Mett time to hit them. Only issues at WR are drops and separation. 6'4 ain't fixing that.
Great assessment. Our passing game over the past 5 or 6 years has been beset with problems - case of dropsies with Bowe and Lafell and now Shep, QB situation, Crowton, etc. On top of that Les is gonna be Les and stick to his power rushing game come what may. Even when we had an established QB in JR supported by Bowe, Davis and Doucet, we werent exactly throwing 40 times a game but grinding it on the ground. What makes anyone think the situation would change if we had a slew of tall receivers.
