Re: Tanner Clears Waivers

Tanner runs good routes and catches passes. I believe if you put him in your regular rotation of WR's on gameday, he will make some plays and move the chains. Someone just has to give him that shot. Stills and Toon are just bigger, faster, and have more upside. The staff likes Meachem and hopes he still has something left. If he doesn't pan out or one of the other WR's goes down for an extended period, Tanner will be back with the Saints. The five RB's on a roster, in a pass first offense, that doesn't use the last two for much of anything, is more of a head scratcher for me. I know the argument, but the Saints are REALLY hurting to dress DLinemen at the moment and who knows when Bunkley or Foster will be back.

Tanner isn't what some people think he is. He's just not a starter in this league. Even if he is a fan favorite.

As far as the Pats, they need T.O. or Moss.

Tanner plays almost exactly the same game as Lance Moore and Moore is a very good #2 wideout. I predict he'll be back on the roster within 3 weeks, unless somebody else signs him.

His skill set is similar but the level in which he does it isn't. Tanner is not a number 2 in the NFL. He's a 5th or 6th option.

In 2005 a lot of people probably thought the same about Moore. He bounced around from the roster to the PS too, and didn't get the chance to prove himself until a couple years later. It's all about opportunity.
