Default Re: Plax

I don't know guys, I think he was more than a little over rated. One thing for sure, he could not jump and catch a ball to save himself. Example, last years championsip game for one. Example number two, ever wonder why we didn't throw fade patterns in the end zone to this guy, or just tossing it up there? How often did you see him fight for a ball (other than his patented push of move)? How about his notorious lack of YAC? He just doesn't have it in him to be a top flight receiver. Starter quality? On most teams he would start. A player to take a team to the next level? No way.

Bring on the new guys. Our 4 round pick was awesome, and is going to make more than a few forget about Plax.

Gibson looks very promising. He is almost as tall as Plax and could probably be turned into the deep threat guy. Maybe not this year, but you never know. I think this guy is going to do well though.

Yes, they will not give us the constant deep threat. We know that Randel El can get open, with the addition of Miller it gives Big Ben more options. When was last time we had a good pass catching TE. (Green, Cunningham, Grossman??) Neither one by themself will make a difference but the both of them together will make up for our loss of Plex.

I think on their own the WR won't be a deep threat, but their decent speed and size along with Ben's ability to scrable and stay active will allow some to slip past defenders and let Ben throw those 60 yard "what happened" bombs over the defense. Don't know but sounds good so far...

Randle had more catches and yards than Plax last year. We still won when he was injured. And he had the potential to be a cancer in the locker room with his "me first" mentality. I know we may miss the deep threat but i don't mind seeing him go.
