    Wide receiver options

    I think that we are in need of a wide receiver or two that can actually get open on a regular basis. BB is a solid receiver, but who else do we have. Bobby is a solid slot receiver, but is no speedster by any stretch. I don't know if Rice is going to pan out, he is still green, but he doesn't seem to be able to get open that often. Shianco is doing fine, maybe the best we have and not a wide out. I think we need another option or two, and would like to see a free agent acquisition, and or a draftee. Thoughts fellas.
    I bet you could use a cool one huh Clark...Now you're talkin Eddie...

    Re: Wide receiver options

    Despite his incentives that would almost make him impossible to pick up, I want Fitzgerald...

    But can we PLEASE focus on a QB first?

    Re: Wide receiver options

    I agree about the qb, but I think we need a two pronged attack. A good qb with nobody open doesn't do us much good either. Kind of the egg or the chicken scenario.

    I would give both balls for Fitzgerald.
    He's very moss-esqe in that he can bail a qb out of a bad throw, by making a rediculous catch.
    he doesn't even have to be open, just look back at their last two games, last game he made a rediculous circius catch in double coverage, and against atlanta he made an unreal catch on that flea flicker

    Fitz is growing on me... but I more so like Boldin, I think he's better IMO and he's more affordable and more likely to be traded...

    can you imagine Boldin and BB with shank AD and Rice/AA in the slot... sick...

    floop bwade... but he's growing on me too...

    I'd take both.
    Didn't Boldin say he didn't want to be back in AZ earlier in the season?
    I'm sure going this deep in the playoffs might change his mind though.

    I still like Fitz.
    I think as a #1 player, Fitz would do better than Boldin.
    Boldin seems better from the slot, running the short/intermediate routes and getting the YAC, Fitz seems to do everything.

    Its tough to say who's better untill you put them each on their own team.

    Rice is our redzone guy if he can stay healthy.
    Wade is a great slot/third guy, but shouldn't be leading our team in receptions.
    BB is all right when he hangs on to the ball.
    AA and DR are both shifty/fast guys, but young and prone to youthful mistakes.


    Sorry bud, but you probably ought to give up on Fitz.
    Boldin, maybe there's a shot...but you know they'll want to keep him.
    That dude is one tough WR...he's like TO with Hines Ward's attitude.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Re: Wide receiver options

    Lots of good options there

    I just want to add a solid number 2

    Darrell Jackson and Bobby Engram would be solid number 2s
