I like the Ziggy thought too , he does already know the system , but I do question his run blocking a bit. I think who ever we bring in will be for depth mainly and Ginn and Williams will be the next go to guys along with our TE's.
Hey , Ghost where have you been ? Glad to see your post.
Just been hanging back, enjoying life and watching some damn good football for a change! :)
Yah, I think people are focusing a little too much on bringing in a WR who can block. Sure, it's important, but once Edwards gets back, whoever we sign will be the #4 guy behind Crabs, Ginn and Braylon (and possibly even the #5 guy if Williams steps up), so it's not like he's going to be on the field a lot. He's mostly insurance, so why not get a guy who has a little more versatility than just being big enough to block???
Besides, blocking is mostly about effort/heart/technique and not always size/strength. Being willing to throw your body in front of the right defender at the right time is just as critical for a WR as it is being able to drive your man downfield 10-15 yards.
