all for performance related issues.
I was stoked to see Essex riding the bench. Only to see him back out there when our inevitable o-line injury happened. I hope we don't have the Scott, Essex, Legursky crew manning the left/middle of our line for much longer.

Sanders is more of a Holmes style receiver... in my opinion. He and Wallace just has 2 different styles.... Which equates to being "good".

Going with the youth movement at WR eh.

I like it.

I been saying since game 1 - Unless we're running a gadget play, ARE is USELESS. Harsh but true.

Wallace will never be as good a deep threat as Moss....let me correct that....Wallace will never be as good a total WR as Moss. As much as I hate Moss let's not be silly. Wallace does not have the size to physically dominate DB's like Moss did. If Wallace doesn't run by the db he's rarely going to use his body to make long balls look routine like Moss did.....and Moss dealt with double and triple coverages on a routine basis.

Once Wallace does learn to use his body better and improve his ball skills he'll definitely be a great WR. I think he's still a year away from being one of the best in the league. His speed and motor make him great right now. Once he learns the position the league better watch out. The problem is speed WR's don't usually last long in the NFL. Once they lose a step they aren't so special. He reminds me of the Ram's WR's a while back. Expect Wallace to put up some huge numbers for a short period of time...but don't expect the longevity of a Moss or even a Hines Ward.

I think Brown needs to work on his hands and route running a bit more, but I'm glad to see him getting in the game during special teams and some pass situations.

Thanks El yeah, but we found our receivers and thanks to our coaching staff, have made the necessary transition to them. Go Brown and Sanders along with Ward and Wallace! Great job by the drafting team as they have hit it right. Now if we could do the same with O lineman and some D backs....

Wallace owns!

Sanders has potentional but I don't think he'll be a Wallace.

Randle El was never a good receiever he was grabbed by Cowher for punt returns. He is far beyond his time but he can throw a football in a gadget play!
