Wide receivers

i know we have alot more problems than receivers but it is still a problem. Ive never really been a morgan fan...he had 2 good games vs scrubs in preseason a year ago and has been stinking it up. I feel like he has alot of drops. With devery out we need someone to pick up the slack. I know this isnt a popular person but i think chad johnson would fit here. he is known for his route running and thats all yo uneed to do in with brees. run a good route and catch the ball. supposedly CJ is too dumb to pick up offenses quickly but he has to be better than Morgan.

Re: Wide receivers

I say bring Tanner up off of the PS and waive Morgan and re-sign him to PS. You can always switch this up later in the season if Tanner doesn't pan out and I really don't think anyone will sign Morgan, he hasn't shown anything yet.

Re: Wide receivers

I get what you are getting at. Our receivers are not looking great. Colston is obviously not healthy. He can barely run for crying out loud. Moore started off decent but dissapeared. I don't know whats going on..are the receivers just not getting enough time to run there route and get open because the O line is not giving Drew enough time?

The regresion of the O line, IMO, is a direct result of Kromer not spending enough time with them. I just cross my fingers that Drew can avoid getting killed until Vitt gets back.

Colston injuries are a major concern,especially as there is little behind him on the depth chart.
I'm starting to get a little worried that last season was the last shot for this group of players and injuries/age is going to put the team on the downward slope for a couple of years.

Re: Wide receivers

Well I expected big things from Henry Ellard. We may be seeing some "growing pains" there as this is his first season working with our guys. And then right after he gets here, BOOM Goodell takes Payton out of the mix, so he's kind of coaching the receivers in a vacuum here... I miss Curtis Johnson. I knew it was gonna suck losing him, just didn't think it would be this noticeable. I am hopeful it will improve. We need veteran leadership right now, and Ellard does have that. I'm sure he has seen epidemics of the dropsies plague a receiving corps before, and hopefully knows the cure to turn it around. Hopefully.

Re: Wide receivers

Roby has yet to drop a ball all year has 11 catches 155 yards and averages 14 YPC.

Why is he not being used? He only has 11 catches because he has only been thrown the ball 11 times... He is 100% and I have yet to see him drop a ball.

Re: Wide receivers

This is a problem, we have been dropping a lot of balls a s of lately. I think a big problem with this is with Curtis Johnson stepping away. We are dropping a lot more than before. I didn't put much into this, until i started thinking back when Devery seemed to drop everything thrown his way. Then Curtis came into the picture and turned his game around. Now he is gone look at us in two games how many dropped balls we have?

Where are you getting these numbers on Roby? ESPN has him with one catch for nine yards on this season.

Re: Wide receivers

The fact we lost our receivers coach to Tulane is not helping the situation. What do you think?
