theres been talk amongst the team that hines ward missing the 1st 2 weeks was a blessing in disguise. it let el and wilson learn the other wr spots (which the coaching staff wanted to do anyways) they had plays last year that they could not use because not only of plexicos limitations but his size would give away what they were trying to do. this year you will find all 3 receivers lining up anywhere. the idea is to say put c. wilson in the flanker and confuse the defense into double covering him while el is in the z position and hines is in the slot with single coverage. ben just takes his pick on who is more open. the patriots havent needed a 6'5" wr to win 3 superbowls and neither do the steelers. thats why when everyone said losing him was doom and gloom i just sat back and smiled.
