Go easy on him. He is pretty serious about trying to play the right/wrong thing all the time.Quote:

Wouldn't be a bad option if we can't get Rice back.
Problem is, that gives us three receivers in that sort of small, quick build. Harvin, Smith and Aromashodu. We need an outside receiver.
From our good friends at Wiki....
Flanker (Z or FL): A receiver lining up behind the line of scrimmage. Frequently the team's featured receiver, the flanker uses the initial buffer between himself and a defender to avoid jamming, legal contact within five yards of the line of scrimmage. The flanker is generally on the same side of the formation as a tight end. As with the split end, this receiver is the farthest player from the center on his side of the field. The flanker is probably lined up just like a split end except that he is just behind the line of scrimmage, being in the backfield and not on the line.
Drop the technical terms, it's getting old. We know you like to appear more educated in the game then anybody else by referring to receivers by the Y/Z who run 4 routes and 7 routes and 0 tech DT's, we all get it, we just choose not to play along.
Like you say, it's a "Discussion site". If I want to call a flanker an outside receiver (which he is), I damn well will.
In this case it bit him in the ass and I'm gonna have fun with it for a few days.:evil:
