Default We need our young receivers in the mix.....

We need to get our young guys in the mix more.........Sanders needs some balls thrown his way.......Brown needs to learn the playbook faster.............We need some young speed for some quick hits 5-9 yards down field.............

Brown knows the playbook. He just has a stubborn headcoach who would rather see Arnaz Battle on STs.

Or maybe the GM is stubborn... people don't realize just to put a guy on the active roster the head coach has to the GM first. Tomlin was a reciever, I'm sure he would love to have these guys in the game, but maybe he's only allowed to have 1 rookie reciever on the roster at a time or Battle is getting way too much money to be on the practice squad.

The roster has been handled very poorly this season, but as fans we really don't know what happens behind the scenes.

Yes we do...Wallace is a long threat but still struggles with routes....We got to get these young speedy guys involved....I just can't understand why we haven't?

see the pick 6 denver returned on us in preseason. if 2nd year wallace is still struggling with routes a bit, it makes sense that our 2 rookies wouldnt have the offense mastered as well.

I'm pleased with Randel El for the 5-9 yarders, he hasn't been weak there and he knows the system.

I'm sure Holmes is sitting back with a blunt and laughing at this thread.

Nah I will give you that, but remember we did that last year with Wallace and he's still doing what he does.

I do agree I wouldn't mind having Sanders getting a few more touches out there, but honestly I'd just prefer a Welker-esque receiver. Hines is the vet who can run any route and do what you need him to do usually. Wallace is break-neck speed and deep-threat. Ben, for whatever reason, hasn't been hitting Miller as much for moving the chains, maybe put Sanders or Brown there.

If they can do it well, it'll help Miller in moving them too.

I'm sick of seeing Spaeth drop passes though.
