Default Re: Can Emmanuel Sanders develop into the best 3rd down receiver?

Production on a plummet? taking up a roster spot? sure, he's not the same player he was 6 years ago... but after coming off back-to-back 1000 yard seasons, 755 yards as the clear #2 receiver behind a 1250 yard guy in a run-first offense wasn't too shabby. and of course, stats don't mean everything.. he's still the best blocking WR in the game and is still the clutchest receiver we have inside the red zone... if we were able to prolong the final drive in the Super Bowl and score the winning TD, he may have been named the MVP again with another catch or two.
