Where We Re-Look The Wide Receiver Corps
Where We Re-Look The Wide Receiver Corps - Daily Norseman
In light of the devastating injury
suffered by Greg Childs, let's re-look this. After the jump.
Not sure about all of you, but I'm just not that concerned over the loss of Childs. Sure, he looked to be a steal, but in all seriousness, ole Musgrove is still intent on running multiple TE's sets with 2 backs in the back field.
How many WR's do you need on the roster for a offensive system like that? Heck, in certain circumstances we might not even need a WR on the field if he runs out a 2-3 (1, RB, 1 FB/H-back/3 TE's) set and if he runs out a 2-2 (1 RB, 1 FB-H-back, 2 TE's) your still only going to need one WR.
On a side note, if Burton can't step up and fill the role, I sure wouldn't be apposed to Ole Leslie calling his good friend Mike (you know, over there in Pittsburg) and see what he can give him for a certain WR that won't sign his tender.

Around the same age as the teams corps members. Only getting better. Just big and strong enough to work the middle as well as stretch it a bit if needed.
