Brian, with addition of Baldin, I think this WR corps is way better than what we had last yr at this time...or anytime last yr to be more precise. Chew on this set on 3rd down, need 7 yrds for a first in SEA:
Boldin, Baldin, Kyle, Vernon, vance,...5 wide... and LMJ in the backfield. Ummm...just who exactly is going to cover that stable of terrific WRs and a RB who can't be tackled if he gets a shovel pass in the backfield. You have to admit , that is pretty intimidating. And then a QB who "makes fire" . Yup ,Kap throws the heater and it has smoke coming out the rear end...and surprise: he is throwing darts and on a line...an accurate line.
I would LOVE for that to be accurate. You call them "terrific WR's". I think they all have a CHANCE to be that, but right now, its just a guess.
Kyle has 35 catches in his career, is that "terrific"?
Baldwin has 41 catches in his career. Seriously, "terrific"?
Vance is a rookie. Is he really "terrific" as of right now?
They all might become terrific, but that is a super best case scenario. With Kap, anything is possible. He could elevate all of their games, but these players could just as easily struggle.
I really hope you are right about our WR core.
