People are falling in love with Parker too much. Yes, he's good, but he's not a better receiver than Tanner.
People saw 2 touchdowns (both were from 2 yards out) in the first preseason game, and he suddenly becomes a god on this board. He had 2 catches for 30 yards last game. This reminds me of the love affair people had for Cadet last season, when he proved jack shite. Had Mccown of been in, or at least someone who can throw worth a shit/make reads, we would've seen some catches from Tanner.
I think Parker and Tanner should both make the squad, but only because I think Roby's job can easily be replaced. Your roster should be the best 53, and Tanner is deserving of that, while filling in a spot that needs depth.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be Parker/Roby as the 5th and 6th receiver spots, nor would I be mad about it. I trust the front office and Payton to do what they feel is best for the team. However, I think we'd be better off, and more versatile at the receiver position, with Tanner/Parker. I'm hoping it plays out that way.
