    So, the guys whose jobs are solely dependent upon figuring out how to do just that (Fisher/Snead) are ..... stupid?
    When they have their QB healthy, they're successful against this division. Even when they don't have their QB they're competitive against them. Maybe -- just maybe -- they have a plan to build upon that success and successfully SCHEME against those teams? I mean, it's possible .... right?

    Explain to me whom on the Roster at receiver do you expect to win against those corners in our division, like Sherman, Peterson, Cromartie, etc. ..I'll wait.

    And please try to keep a straight face :D

    These guys aren't just "good corners" - they're the best in the NFL at the position.....not a description that anyone, without blinders on, would describe a single one of our receivers

    Can you name many that DO beat those guys consistently? That aside, I've seen all of our receivers, at one time or another, beat those guys.
    Does that answer your question?

    And then there's the fact that there are other sides of the field.

    like Sherman, Peterson, Cromartie, etc. ..I'll wait.

    Lets look at SEA and SF's WRs ... "
    do you expect to win against those corners in our division, like Sherman, Peterson, Cromartie, etc. ..I'll wait.

    And please try to keep a straight face :D"

    Craptree? Boldin? Harvin? Craptree is a one trick pony, Boldin and Harvin are where they're at by experience (which our receivers are lacking) they're good.. not great
    okay.. what if Watkins turns into the next Fitzgerald or better? the Cards are still in the middle of the pack... not winning a lot.. not losing a lot.. and its not because Fitzgerald singlehandly carries the team either... its based on defense, and that's what we're building on

    WRs cannot carry the team... its impossible, ask Megatron... even 3 good receivers can't get it done in Thomas, Decker, Welker,

    i like where this thread is going. lets diss our receivers we have and state that some guy or guys who have never played in the nfl are automatically better.

    I am not saying that we have the best WR's but how do these top DB's cover more than one WR at a time? So they have a shut down DB, we pick on the other ones or the LB that are way up in the box to stop the run with a play action.

    Everything that has happened so far is all on paper. You still have to play the games. I trust Fisher and his staff, but again I am always a half full type of guy.

    Some serious negativity today. Some of you need to chill out already. Our WR's are not as bad as some seem to think. You know we have the youngest group in the league.
    Quick- Sure the jury is still out but I don't think you can rule him out yet. And talking about others on the board..

    Like it or not, all those receivers easily outproduced the Rams. The excuse because of "clemens was a qb so they got less opportunities" doesn't fly either when a team passes less yet still has better producing wide outs.

    Why do they need multiple DB's to cover our receivers? our receivers struggle with beating man to man coverage - you can't tell me the best in the game are going to need it.

    I'm sure Sam would agree - but then the fans would continue to just call him captain checkdown :eek:


    4 TD's in the last 6 games against NFC west opponents says it all - by the way some of these are some old pics, they're not from last season...and i can easily tell some of these came in garbage time, like the Brian Quick touchdown to Trumaine brock came with less than 20 seconds in the game in the 4th qtr when we're getting killed (and also accounts 1 of those few td's in the past games against NFC West opponents)
