    I know that. That's why I said he's not a determining factor in the team's success.
    But you just said (and I reiterated) the Seahawks were one dimensional with their porous pass blocking. And yet....

    didn't say they were one dimensional - marshawn is one hell of a back and that defense is the best in the league.

    they still moved the chains a bit through the air....

    plus you have the wilson effect, scrambling and getting yards or extra time

    One-dimensional as it applies to the offense.
    But, we're getting into semantics now. I think we both made our points known. (y)

    This is all coming from a radio interview he did early last week. He is drawing this conclusion based on the comments Snead and Fisher both made early in the year regarding our receivers developing.

    This is not anything that has come from new information...take this (and ANY draft info you hear) with a grain of salt. I mean, the made these comments about not needing to add any receivers and then they went out and signed Kenny Britt.

    If this team has enough talent at receiver then I don't see any team drafting a receiver, which is good news as Watkins should be available as an UDFA :party:.

    That post needed at least double blue font. Perhaps triple.

    No, I'm not sure how that would be possible.

    i severely disagree - i think it's the opposite.

    Name one player who has left here and actually played better elsewhere?

    Upgrade the receiver position and you'll see the impact reflected on Bradford. I'm sure he'd love to have a target that gets open quicker (or at all)

    Hyperbolic much?
    I believe we end up with two A.M. players from this draft and no Watkins,it'll be Evans if he's there when we want him which won't be at 2 and the main reason it would be him is his ability to block guys like Sherman,that's the only place I see us needing to upgrade at rec.

    That and catching the ball, but that's only a minor one.

    And unblued sarcasm as well, multi talented y'are

    Watkins will be good,I take that as a given ,but the "we have nothing at rec." rhetoric is tired and wrong and I can't wait to see it exposed. Sam has to make it with this bunch and maybe Evans or IMO he's the guy who takes the fall/ blame.He was headed for a career year with three newbies at rec. on this team last year ,that IMO only gets better even without Evans this year time for a franchise tackle.

    go re watch games after stacy took over. the receivers were getting open. Either Clemens didnt see them didnt have time or wasnt accurate. ive been watching the games like a coupleweeks. So i disagree

    I have - and I disagree.

    okay true - but then he was the #3/4 option behind dez bryant,jason witten, and miles austin.

    But Robinson is also a free agent and was cut by jacksonville of all teams last year..

    so I kinda go back to my main point - the guys not even playing anymore

    Actually, I thought it was a smart, value signing for the Cowboys. I laughed at the Jaguars, however, for signing him to a big money contract and expecting him to be a no.1 WR.
