    If Britt does nothing else, I hope the competition pushes Quick to become a good receiver. We need one of those two to step up.

    But I think that is Fisher and Snead's plan. No other explanation for why they didn't address the WR position in the draft or FA.

    They did nothing to address the receiver situation aside from signing a talented yet questionable guy. At least its a 'prove it' type contract. They could gain an outstanding playmaking receiver, or realize he ain't the guy they hoped for and cut him loose. Won't cost them much. The same with Joseph at guard. If these two guys make it, it will go long way to shoring up two areas that were the biggest question marks last year.

    I totally agree. I actually have more faith in Britt making an impact than I do DJ. DJ is depth ... Britt was brought in to be the "big gun WR".

    I was down with it from day one. The low risk contract was even more appealing.

    He can still pass a physical but lack the explosiveness that made him a difference maker for a few seasons unfortunately.

    Well, obviously, that's the hope. And the contract makes it an acceptable risk. I would honestly be unsurprised if he didn't even make the team though.

    But there's always that hope.

    Hmm... explosiveness.

    He never had top in speed to start. He was a good route runner out of college. I doubt his knee has been the big reason for his downfall. All arrows point to off the field distractions. The guy is another head case that played well for Fisher. He won't have a better opportunity rejuvenate his career than right here is STL. At 27 I'm sure he's mature enough to understand that. His knee has been a set back, maturity has been his downfall. Plus he played for the Titans. Hasselbeck has been his best QB.

    .

    Last season was a disaster for him. I remember early in the season the titans needed to score a td in the final minutes and locker asked the coaching staff to get britt off the field and put in the rookie Hunter. Hunter ended up catching the winning td. It just showed where britt's head was at last season.

    Britt is a 1st round talent, and i think we're going to see good things from him this year...

    he was brought in to push Quick. You can't bring a guy in that's never been the guy and expect him to be the guy. When its all said and done i expect Quick to beat him out

    Precisely, the mature age of 25. Let's cut him now.

    Playing with KC instead of Sam on a team that completed 14 passes a game will tend to reduce the numbers a guy can put up

    Sure, and as I said many times, if he was doing well with Sam it's a fair argument.
