Default Do we need a big receiver in the redzone???????

the redzone has plague us not only this season but last season as well. Sweed was suppose to be the guy but he's been disappointment.

Stone Hands Sweed. He even batted down the final attempt in today's game. He along with Gay, Townsend, and Carter are on the short list out of town.

Okay, I have to admit that I stormed out of the bar I was watching the game at when the Raiders scored that last TD, so I didn't see the final play, but wasn't it a Hail Mary into the end zone amid insanely heavy coverage? That's a REALLY tough catch to make... damn near impossible in most cases. I don't think you can pin all the blame on Sweed for something like that.

We just need better execution. Colts don't have any large receivers so size isn't the issue. Just need better execution, we have some of the best talent at the skill position.

I don't think we need a big receiver in the redzone we have some good receivers and a good tight end. We didn't need one last year on the way to the Superbowl so why do we need one now.
