I like Johnson as well. I saw some pretty good hands from the few plays he made.

I wouldn't mind the Steelers signing Wilford either, but I think the Jags will more than likely want to keep him.

Hey Ben - wanna give up some of your moola to keep Faneca?

Asking 4 tall receiver? That just hurts when those guys don't fail him, in my opinion.

I think Ben should have kept his mouth shut about the receivers. That is an insult no matter how nice he put it to them. As far as Faneca, that won't happen - He figured he might as well just give it a shot as a courtesy thing I think.

I do like Gage a lot; he wouldn't cost that much coming from the Titans...

We could have frigging Yao Ming as a WR and if Ben is still getting clobbered 3,4,5 times a game (or more) it makes no difference. Priority #1 - fix the OL.

the reciever could be 8 feet tall and if the Oline doesnt protect then ben has no time to throw the ball.... so it dont matter how tall the reciever is when ben is usually laying on his back.

I think there is some truth to the fact that Ben mentions about the plain of his throws being downwords to small(ish) receivers all the time. He seems to be able to hit the TE's in stride much better than the WR's for the most part, Maybe its mental, who knows, what think you all ??

i say go through the draft and get a reciever in the 3rd or 4th depending on what we do with the first two picks...

Well said.

#1 and #2 picks should be OL if they are really serious about fixing the line for the future which I truly believe belongs with Ben. A good O-Line wins football games.
