U people are crazy. Where is our gaping while? We don't need a receiver & if we did it wouldn't be plax. If we were gon make a move on a receiver it would've been T.O. U say he's an upgrade over all our receivers but the stats don't back up ur theory. D.M played in less games & had simular stats. DHB had better stats & Chaz Schillens took his spot on his team. The wco is alot of short precise routes. Not his strong point. All we need is good health cuz in the wco RB & TE are key in the rezone. Teams are ninja have problems trying 2 stop the speed of our WRs running alot of short drag routes, slant routes ect... We just need Brandon Myers to come along & we'll be just fine. If plax was so great the jets wouldn't have let him go.

Plaxico would be 100 times better option than TO. Thay said although non of our WR's are time tested and proven leadrs. I agree we njraider...we don't need a wr. We need an lb or a couple shut down db's. But lb is top of my list. On shut down db would cause more problems i think. I wouldn't be opposed to a beast o line man for competition. I think we are heading in the right direction...but only time will tell.
