Default Four Wide?

I am psyched by the depth of the WR Corps! Sweed has impressed me with his progression since last year, and Wallace looks to be the best rookie receiver we've picked up recently. He's adjusting to the game fast! I'm predicting now that we'll see alot of four wide formations. I keep getting this image with Wallace and Sweed lined up on one side with Hines and Santonio on the other. I can see Wallace and Sweed flying down the field on fly routes, Wallace's speed getting him open with a sure score if the ball's not underthrown, and if it is underthrown, there's Sweed right on the spot, using his height and strength to bring that ball down.

This could be Ben's +4000 yard, 30 TD MVP season.

I'll take 500 yards and 50 interceptions if it means we win the Super Bowl.

Not that we'd be likely to with those numbers, but you know what I mean.

4 wide, but who is blocking? We need more short yardage passing plays like screens and slots which depends less on hands. However, we are fat with receivers. Ward, Holmes, and Miller have outstanding hands. McDonald also has an excellent pair. Sweed is much better, but no better than a #3 at this time. Wallace could serve double duty as a WR and KR.

Don't forget about McDonald!! depth is a great thing! but I'm not sure Wallace beats McDonald on the depth chart. But, it wouldn't make a difference to me either way.

If we went four wide would we be then able to dictate to the defense to react and keep them honest? I cant remember if we tried this in the Eagles Offensive debacle last year but I did remember the screens (both receiver and running back) getting blown up.

mcdonald has the hands.. he would catch everything in detroit that was thrown to him.

if we go 4 wide would that not help parker or mendy as lone backs whe they hit the holes as the defense is a bit more streched out ....

instead of the offense all bunched up inside the hash marks.... with one wide.

4 wide with a running back means taking heath miller off the field.

i dont know if i like the idea of taking one of our best offensive players off the field unless he needs a blow.
