Terrence Austin, Mike Furrey, Maurice Price, Taurus Johnson, Joey Galloway, Ray Small, Brandon Banks, Marques Hagans, Bobby Wade, Roydell Williams, Anthony Armstrong, Niles Paul, Leonard Hankerson, Aldrick Robinson, Donte Stallworth, and now our latest addition Jabar Gaffney.Yes, that is 16 wideouts brought in through the draft, trade, or free agency in a little over one year. I don't know what is worst....drafting 3 pass catchers in the 2nd round or possibly bringing in 20+ WRs in a 2 year span.
Chasing WRs would leave you in the gutter....look at the Lions. If anything the WR position should be the last position you should try to address. Maybe he want elite WRs so our rookie QB in 2012 can get off to a easy start, but what he fail to realize is we are stacking up at the wrong offensive position. Our rookie QB will NEED protection more than a elite WR bunch. Not only that but did he forget we have the worst defense in the league. Try stacking up on some cornerbacks or if we are going to suck this year then let it be with a young QB....run a QB carousel throughout the season or something.
I just know about this Shanahan guy. He said he is going to build this team the right way, but keep targeting a glamor position and then traded valuable draft picks for McNabb. Since Shanahan arrival we have been linked to Vincent Jackson, Santonio Holmes, Sidney Rice, Braylon Edwards, etc.. When Danny and Vinny was running the show we were always linked to the big name guy. Now with Shanahan be prepared to be linked to every big name WR that is on the market which basically makes him Matt Millen 2.0.
