    Steve Smith

    Since we are going old and busted with QB and possibly dealing with the departure of Rice, maybe the player we should be looking at to fill the WR is Steve Smith.

    He is nearly cashed out but since we are just temporarily plugging holes and not building the team through youth he looks to be the perfect fit.

    Re: Steve Smith

    You talking Carolina Steve Smith?

    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.

    Re: Steve Smith

    Lance Moore is still out there and would be a very suitable replacement should Rice skip town.

    If we get Rice back though I think we are going to roll with Rice, Harvin, Aromashodu and the CFL guy as our primary four.

    Re: Steve Smith

    I assume you mean Randy? Would love to get him back.

    Roy might be a good signing too. He was pretty good as a Lion with no QB and no other playmakers. Perhaps a change of scenery is just what he needs.

    I would love to give Randy one more shot to make amends in Minnesota before he hangs them up.

    He should have never left in the first place. Maybe with McNabb at QB, he will be more inclined.

    LOL, you almost got it right. Rice is not an outside reciever.

    From our good friends at Wiki....

    Berrian (sometimes Harving)

    Split end (X or SE): A receiver on the line of scrimmage, necessary to meet the rule requiring seven such players at snap. Where applicable, this receiver is on the opposite side of the tight end. The split end is farthest from center on his side of the field.[5]
    Rice
    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.[6]
    Harvin (sometimes Rice)

    Slot receiver (Y or SL): A less-formal name given to receivers in addition to split ends and flankers (for example tight-ends who line up wide). These receivers line up between the split end/flanker and the linemen. If aligned with a flanker, the slot receiver is usually on the line of scrimmage, and if with a split end, off the line of scrimmage. As with the flanker position, a featured receiver often takes a slot position with a split end to avoid jamming.[6]

    I would have liked to see Harvin, Rice and Moss on the field at the same time. Especially with AD in the backfield and Shanc thrown into the mix.

    Would have been interesting.

    Instead we had two deep buys (BB and Moss) and a TE when Harvin was illen.

    Pretty hard to beat two S's helping out over the top when you have two deep guys running 8 and 9 routes.

    Are you telling me the flanker doesn't line up on the outside of the formation?

    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.
