i think GB carries 5-6 maybe 8 lol receivers on their roster.
we might start seeing a little more of the spread Offense in New york if this WR by committee thing is what goes down come season time
we know Nicks/Cruz/Randle and for most parts Jerrnigan is safe who are the next two.
yes i know....."NOT another receiver thread, somebody slit my keyboards wrist."
but i think we can all agree that if you take out the respective QB's of each system NO, GB, PAT's and plug in Eli the numbers in stats won't be that far off; the only thing limiting Eli from going off on these suckas is
1. we are a run first
2. personally i dont think we have th Oline for it
3. we've never had a plethora of receivers with different or situational attributes to pull it off
Now i think we do. you have your speed Slot guys in Cruz/jerrnigan/ Depalma/ Talley
Possesion receivers in Nicks i think hixon falls into this category as well?!?! personally
Big men in randle/stanback/ Barden
and i don't know where to put Collins/ Douglas yet
Eli is a QB that makes his receivers better and if they can get this system down we can have most cornerbacks sounding liek carlos rodgers in the NFCC game when he faced cruz.
i've always felt that eli can be elite in a spread offense its just that we don't run it or never had the WR core for it. this year might be different it will be interesting to see what the roster make up is come beginning of the season.
