    Re: NFC rankings: wide receivers

    I might move the Lions into the number one spot. Roy and Calvin are #1s on pretty much every team. And I like Furray and McDonald more than the supporting cast in arizona.
    I would move the eagles down. the WR there have higher numbers because they throw all the time. same with the packers. that should change this year, but from looking at the past.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re: NFC rankings: wide receivers

    I doubt GB's WRs will be that good without Farve throwing to them.
    Should be interesting.

    Re: NFC rankings: wide receivers

    The Skins could have a scary WR corp after their draft this year; but those guys haven't played a down yet... could be TW's.

    but the skins always bring in shiny new players (Moss, Randel El, that guy from San Fran (his name escapes me), and they have been solid, but not outrageously good

    Re: NFC rankings: wide receivers

    Robert Ferguson and Bobby Wade had their share of drops last season.
    Crazy how nobody has commented on this. Ferguson was targeted 62 times and dropped 3. Wade was targeted 83 times and dropped 4. Why did he feel the need to mention this? It is not like this is a huge number or even a concern.

    His top 5 WRs:
    TO 141 targets with 10 drops
    Fitz 166 targets and 0 drops (Bolden 99 targets with 4 drops)
    Burress 141 targets with 6 drops
    Steve Smith 149 targets with 7 drops
    Colston 143 targets with 6 drops

    Actually, I would never have rated the Cards that high but like his assesment on them and would tend to agree.....

    Pretty fair assesment overall.
    ;D

    Not to mention they picked up Early Doucet in the draft....
    Cajun...is that you?

    Redskins ranked 12 out of 16? With Santana Moss,El(I am not refering to me
    ;D) and Malcom Kelly ?

    :
    Are you saying they should be higher?
    Moss has averaged a whole 800 yards and 4.5 TDs the last two seasons and has only 2 1,000 yard seasons in a seven year career.
    Randle El? Has averaged an entire 500 yards per season in Washington and is one of the most overrated WRs in the league averaging only 500 yards a season over his career and scoring a whole 11 TDs receiving in his six year career.
    And Malcolm Kelly is a rookie. These guys could even be ranked lower without much argument.

    Well for only 62 targets ... 3 drops is quite a bit. As is 4 drops in 83 targets. That is a drop once every 20 targets. That is worse than everyone on your list their other than T.O. ... who obviously produces so much without the drops that they are significantly less worrisome.

    Umm little confused by what you are saying. If you double Wade targets that would be 166 and his drops would be 8. How is that worse than all of those? Seems to me that he is right were he should be compared to the best. Ferg would be 124 with 6. A little bit worse bit still not something worth mentioning.
