Exactly. And there is only ONE football...

Please don't forget that we have running backs as well...

With five-plus offensive linemen that have to be paid to block so any one of those other ten offensive players can break the goalline plane for us...

And there's that thing with the defense...

Disagree. Every game last year we either carried 5 WR and 2 TE or 4 WR and 3 TE's. Watson and Graham were active all year, and Hill played 13 games.
Receivers were active for a total of 71 games (4.5 per game)

It's not about how many balls there are; it's about depth/fatigue/injuries/options. Pretty difficult to run a 4 WR or 2 TE set if you don't have the healthy players to do it
