Default Receivers

I was happy to see both Sanders and Brown out there. Ben doesn't seem to have any hesitation and the more they get to work together in practice, the better they will become.

I was happy to see no Randle El out there...except for his one fair catch. He needs to be deactivated. Just use Brown.

Having Sanders and Brown out there may eventually free Wallace up more because then you have 3 burners.

I don't know what's going on with Ward lately. This could be his last year. I want him to go out on top. Much love for what he has given us. I hope he has enough in the tank for one more Superbowl run. If he is going to be on the field, we are going to need him.

I think they played well, still need to come back to the ball as they need to understand BB is going to be under pressure every play.

Ward pretty much was a non factor all game. So the others needs to start stepping it up.

I'm not impressed with this receiving corps. On several occasions they struggled to get open. Sanders and Brown are carbon copies. They are short, quick, slot-receiver types. They miss Holmes big play ability. I haven't seen enough elusiveness from Wallace just yet. They need some size in the WR department to compliment the two short players, the speedster and Hines. This is why I say they have to make a push for Fitz in the off-season.

Sanders looks ahead of Brown in the receiving department but man is Brown fast or what? Sanders has been dropping a pass here or there but he's obviously not letting it get to his head because he's coming back and making catches later. I'm glad to see Randle El on the bench too, he gave us just as many drops as Sanders but without the potential. Imagine how much more useless he would be on this team had Holmes not gotten shipped out.

Haha Fitz. That'd be nice but yea right. If our line was patched up we could start getting our tight end Miller in on a lot more plays like we used too. That of course would do wonders for our passing attack. But our line is getting more and more banged up every week.

sanders is the same height/frame as santonio was. brown is more of the slot wr build. wallace looks elusive enough when they were throwing the quick hitters to him, i remember one being a long gainer. With the type of speed he has, he doesn't have to be the most elusive guy, making 1 miss could equal 6 points. There's almost no DB's in the league that would be able to catch him if he gets behind the defense. About brown/sanders, give the 2 kids some time, they will only get better the more they work together in practice
