They have to honor the speed.

Re: Shakiest WR Corps Brees Era

I'll say this ... Keith Kirkwood has been consistently catching 2 or 3 passes per game since he was promoted from the practice squad. That's not great, however he's been consistent.

Tre Smith must improve. 3 bad games in a row. Unacceptable. I just don't trust rookies & UDFA's in the playoffs. Gotta get this sorted out. Playing at home should help.

Missing TG Jr badly.

Re: Shakiest WR Corps Brees Era

The offensive line just hasn’t been giving Drew the protection and time he needs for these guys to get open. Even Thomas is struggling. Armsteads presence is missed big time and the other guys are kind of banged up too. They will be good come playoffs. Winn next week and we can rest starters against Carolina

And I don't trust Tommy Lee Lewis.

Seconded. He reeks of Lance Moore.

Don’t see Ginn helping in that capacity when he returns from injury. He will just be another set of hands. Best we can hope for is him drawing coverage.
Should have kept Coleman.
Ginn can stretch defenses with the speed. But defenses are jamming the WRs at the line, not just our team, yes even teams like the Lambs. Not sure Coleman would add anything we don't already have in Capt Kirkwood, other than maybe slightly better blocking. And Coleman was battling multiple injuries when he was released. I think if SP wanted him back, he'd be here already.

SP just needs to figure out a way to get Drew more time to throw with this line which is not quite as stout as it once was, and get these WRs less jammed and more open.

I just find it hard to believe Marshall and Tate are not better.
Agree that we (and Brees) rely too much on these young guys to make plays

Re: Shakiest WR Corps Brees Era

Simmie Cobbs ... come on down. Let's see what you got.

Lack of depth & experience (see furious Brees telling Smith he needed to cut inside for the ball) is killing us at WR.

Gotta pick up momentum offensively heading into the playoffs. Having a healthy Unger & Armstead will be key though.

Re: Shakiest WR Corps Brees Era

Seems like putting AK and Ingram on the field at the same time would help take away some attention.
Thomas is getting doubled too often, and everyone can see why.
