Lets talk wide receivers!
In an attempt to breath some life back into our small corner of the forums, I'm going to let you all in on my thoughts.
1) Chad's contract isn't up and we know Mike brown is stubborn on trades. So is he going to stay with the team? and if so, will he be the #1 still? I have to imaging yes to both.
2) Simpson blew up at the end of the season. If he's as good as he was in those last two games, there is no reason for him to not be the #2.However, the lock out might seriously hurt his progression. Does anyone else see Simpson falling back into roster limbo?
3) Shipley proved himself as a rookie, something not many WR's can do. Furthermore, he seems like a really good target for Dalton underneath. But I have to imaging that Dalton's lack of arm strength and height takes a lot of the field away from a receiver as short as Shipley, especially since he doesn't have the super speed / separation to compensate for it. Does anyone else see this as a problem?
4) Finally, will AJ Green produce anything at all? Rookie wide receivers have notoriously struggled in the past. Now he's got to get past all the usual stuff with the added weight of a lock out preventing him from preparing and a rookie QB that will no doubt have his own growing pains to go through.
I'm just thinking it's going to be a rough season for these guys.
