Do we have a better receiver core this season or last?
I think they are close but I think this coming year is more talented. Obviously we don't have joe or Clyde and I'm not taking them into account. I'm going to rate their skill level at the begining of the year with a 0-10 number and what I feel they progressed to by the end with another number, this is what I feel they were. Terrace Marshall was noticably worse for the remainder of the year after his foot injury, although he was starting to get back into form at the end of the year. I also don't think Moss was very special athleticly, he was mainly a sure handed checkdown.

Which would you rather:

2019
8>9 Justin Jefferson
8>10 Ja'Marr Chase (year 2)
8>7 Terrace Marshall (year 2 injured*)
5>6 Thad Moss

Or

2020
11 Ja'Marr Chase (year 3)
9 Terrace Marshall (year 3 healthy)
7 Racey Mcmath
7 Arik Gilbert

Vote which core you think is better
Upvote for 2019 downvote for 2020

Easy...2020

Added two 5-stars (Gilbert & Boutte) and two studs in the rotation (McMath & Palmer)

Coming into the season I don’t see how you could say 2020 is better than 2019.. knowing what we got to see already last year.

Jamar=Jamar
Terrace=Terrace
Jefferson >> McMath
Moss > Gilbert

Probably 2020 but no way to say. If the guys from last year make a jump (Chase, Marshall, McMath, etc) you pretty much have the same core as last year except everyone is better. You replace JJ with guys like McMath, Palmer, Boutte etc. and they don’t even have to be as good as Jefferson to make 2020 better if we somehow have an even better Chase and Marshall

The time to ask this question is after the 2020 season. As everything at this point is pure speculation.

I gave you a 5th up vs 8 Dn (that just don’t respect a good question) — It’s a push since we lost Moss and Sullivan & JJ

Gonna Miss JJ and that two step @$$ shakin After TDs — That in itself was priceless you gotta admit

95 TDs in 2019 — Watch JJ Shake it down funny as hell

Teams got so pissed off at LSU lololololol

I’m optimistic this team can score close to 6 TDs a game — Last year it was 6.33/game

Experience in the system is a plus — Exp Lost at QB will make it a push

Can I have about 3 games before I decide? Arik could be one of the greatest we’ve seen at LSU..and McMath is a stud...let’s see how things start.

I have to disagree with your opinion.

Chase 2020 > Chase 2019
Marshall 2020 >> Marshall 2019 injured
McMath 2020 << Jefferson 2020
Gilbert 2020 > Moss 2019

The only problem with that is you are going to be comparing Brennan to Burrow once the season starts, so it's kinda a wash.

Burrow and Everyone being in sync with the offensive system made 2019s WR core go from great to phenomenal.

Time can only tell for 2020.

And don’t sleep on how well Clyde played in the passing game last year. He did all the little things correctly to help spread to field even more. Need an RB to step up big in the passing and protection game.

Reciever corps btw. I think we have a better one this season personally.

What makes you think that? Thadeus Moss was our hunter renfrow he caught everything when you needed him to but he wasn't a game breaker. You never had to worry about him blowing up for 40+ yac every play. If you watch Arik Gilbert he blows up every play.

Marshall’20>Marshall’19

Have you watched Gilbert’s highlights and workouts? This is a Julio Jones level talent. Only Chase can be said to be better than Gilbert.

Receiving core may be better but that's not how it works. The quarterback throwing to them has a big impact on how the receivers end up being judged.

I go by coverage and Justin Jefferson was more double covered than the others so I’m sorry to lose him, but you can’t deny that Arik Gilbert adds an unbelievable
amount of versatility.

re: Do we have a better receiver core this season or last?
The wildcard is going to be guys like Palmer, Boutte and Jenkins stepping up. I wouldn’t be surprised to see 2 thousand-yard wideouts and two more with at least 700. Call me crazy but I think Brennan throws for about

5500
50TDs

The only thing in the way of that will be our 3 headed monster in the backfield tearing shite up. With a more aggressive defense, it won’t be far fetched to see The offense have more chances for points.

Do you mean core as in the heart of the group or do you mean corps as in the entire group?
