Rams: Avery, Burton
So my question to you guys is...are you guys exactly satisfied with the WR group we have...or would you like us to make a key aquistion next year, which may harm us from getting a player we may need for another position.
p.s. the group of WR's we have right now is the best group we've had in years, but are we satisfied for that exact reason, or are we satisfied because its a talent-laden group?
Can't really argue about Zona's WRs, they my have the best group in the league. I'm not so sure about Seattle's corps though. I think that these guys may have reached the point where they're living more off of their names then anything else.
Branch has never gone for over 1000 yards in a season, nor has he ever pulled in more than 5 tds.
Burleson has never lived up to his so called potential. He has 1 season over 1000 yards and a couple 9 td seasons, but nothing spectacular.
Hous, has been very productive with out a doubt, but I've never seen him as a true #1. I'm not saying the guy isn't good, but he's not a game changer or player maker. He's a guy that moves the chains. He caught 90 balls last year and only manged 4 TDs. In 2007 he had 112 receptions with only 1100 yards. In contrast, last year Andre Johnson caught 115 passes for 1500 yards. AJ = Play Maker, TJ = Possession receiver.
Come to think of it, that's what all of Seattle's WRs are, possession receivers. They've got our guys in the experience department, but athletically I think we've got them beat.
