But everyone saying that we don't need a WR, or that Baldwin is just as good, are flat out crazy. There is no way of knowing when Manning and Crabtree will play. And until they are back and playing well, we will have a serious need at WR. I like Baldwin, but we need more than that.
you fail to consider how long it would take for Britt to learn the playbook, routes and timing with Colin. but the time that happens, Ham will most likely be ready to play.
Fair point. But I don't think you're factoring that 'Ham might be "ready to play" but still not physically back to his original speed. And that even if he were, he alone is not enough to fix our broken WR depth.
Sure, Britt might take a while. But we need to give roster spots to guys that are capable of making big plays, and have the potential to become starter level players. In other words, guys like Britt, not guys like Moore or Williams.
