The biggest complaint last year in the NFCCG was we didnt have receivers and it was pretty much due to injuries
True. But they aren't running through the heart of the defense either. Our receiver's aren't being hit much by DL and LBs, they are being hit by safeties and corners. I think most people who've played the game realize that there is a big difference between getting hit out in space is very different than pounding it through the front 7.
Honestly, I haven't seen many big hits on our WRs this year. Davis, Walker, and Gore have taken some big hits, but they are tough dudes. Actually, I don't recall seeing one big hit on a WR. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Alex has not attempted many passes that have lead our WRs into trouble. That, and our WRs are VERY good at making people miss. Lot's of shoestring tackles and pushing out of bounds. Not the kind of stuff you worry about.
Do you have a specific play in mind?
