You guys are insane.. Way too early.. Way way too early.
Pead looks shady mccoy shifty.. You gotta let the kid develop
same with Quick..


Are we also going to pretend that Jeffery stood out in the Bears/Indy game? Because that's a joke, he barely showed up besides the one big play. That was busted coverage, Gibson would have made that same play.

Anyone ever notice that our opponents rarely blow coverage against our WRs? Do you think that is coincidence or can we finally admit that our pass catchers are pathetic?

Edit: Danny Amendola would be a reserve player on at least half the rosters in the NFL. We think he is a star because he is the only player on our team that has displayed the ability to make tough catches. He will never be the difference maker in a game, only a complimentary piece.


How dare you compare Alshon Jeffery to Brandon Gibson lol

Seriously, if we would have grabbed Quick, Jenkins, Jeffery I would have been doing back flips. Jeffery is going to be the best WR out of this class.

Very good read here..
Quote:

completion percentages were scattered. No player topped 50 percent, though Drew Brees came close at 49 percent. Aaron Rodgers completed 39.5 percent of his deep passes. Eli Manning, 41.1 percent of his. When you look at the list, all of these quarterbacks have had better receiving options at their disposal than Bradford during his stint in St. Louis.

A few other observations:

Completion percentages should be expected to decline as you go further down the field.
Bradford seems to be most effective outside the numbers on the left side of the field when throwing 20 yards or more. Standing in the pocket and winding up and throwing across his body would seem to explain part of that trend.
Reverse that when he's throwing intermediate passes more effectively to the right side. That's less surprising considering where and how he usually rolls out on play action passes or getting chased from the pocket.
The middle of the field is his friend and will be considering the role played by Danny Amendola and Lance Kendricks. One thing to watch for with Brian Scottenheimer is Amendola lining up on the outside some, whereas he was almost exclusively confined to the slot before this year.
I don't like to make excuses, but it's hard to consider Bradford's historic rate of being sacked and pressured combined with nothing more than a collection of receivers whose ceiling is that of a No. 2 guy (the jury's still out on Brian Quick and Chris Givens, though I suspect that holds for them as well) in isolation from his overall numbers.
Brandon Lloyd and Bradford played together for five games last season.
For guy whose best receivers have been Amendola and Brandon Gibson, I can't find much fault in these numbers.
