Re: FA WR in Vjax and RW

So do we pay top dollar for VJax or give a mid level contract to Garcon?

VJax is a beast, but he's 29 and has some baggage, and I don't like Garçon at all. Fool's gold. Similar stats as Gaffney for similar reasons. Played on a bad team with a bad QB who had to throw all the time because they were always behind. Stats are gonna pile up for somebody. Plus, his first name is Pierre

Re: FA WR in Vjax and RW

I'm wary on getting V-Jax and Colston. Both will want long term deals, yet they are both 29 years old. How much left do they have in the tank?
Also I think that V-Jax's numbers are inflated a bit higher than they should be. He has a tendency to torch terrible pass defenses (313 yds 5tds combined against NE and GB) but then lay an egg in many other games.
Colston I love, but am worried about his lack of starts. He started 7 games last year despite being clearly the best reciever on his team (besides Grahm). Is this an indication of character issues where the coach benches doesn't start him? Probably nothing, but still makes me nervous considering we'd have to pay him top dollar.
Garcon I like alot. He is who I would go for if I were the GM. He is young, runs his routes well, runs after the catch, and won't be paid top dollar. I'd be comfortable with our skill players being Griffin, Garcon, Moss, Hankerson, Davis, Helu, Royster (who quietly dominated this year when given his opportunity...just look at his two starts), Gaffney, and Young as our pass catching FB (also I think Hightower will be back). I doubt Shanny will go to Garcon though. He seems set on a big name guy. His hard push to pay top dollar for that joke Santonio tells me so.

Re: FA WR in Vjax and RW

I'm wary of all three, V-Jax, Colston, and Garcon. Garcon is injured too much, so is Colston, and V-Jax is almost 30 and has issues with alcohol and getting suspended.

Ah maybe your right about Garcon, maybe I got excited because he started 16 games last year. Colston is only 5 months younger than V-Jax.

Re: FA WR in Vjax and RW

Im really starting to belive Stevie Johnson may be our best bet as a FA WR considering talent level and age and as well that guys like Bowe will be franchised. I know he has had some problems with drops but He has shown signs of true talent and being a #1 and the best part about him is his age, he has the chance to improve as well.

I tend to agree

Re: FA WR in Vjax and RW

I also hate to say it but im starting to think Desean would be a good pickup as well. We have zero players that when they get the ball in open field the defense says "oh shit" Desean definitely has that about him. The big thing with him though is he is a bit of a headcase, i doubt MS would even consider but if we could keep him in check i would do it, just something to think about.

Unfortunately, I think he might go to another AFC East team. But yeah, I'd take SJ in a heartbeat.

Re: FA WR in Vjax and RW

The two things I hate about Stevie Johnson (besides his name being stevie)

- he's dropped the ball in huge situations more than once (see steelers game, jets game)

- he celebrates TD's like its his last and gets a penalty every other time.

I hear you on that lol especially the name part BUT he is marginally better than any other receiver we have other than possibly Hank but that is yet to be proven, and he is only 25 where he can mature a bit and also improve his game and the only other #1 i see being available is Vincent Jackson and he is on the older side already.

I personally don't think this is a big deal. Also, our team needs to figure out a way to deal with these type of players. You're not going to get 52 angels in the team, there needs to be leadership in the locker room and the coaching staff.

True on your last sentence, but still, when you celebrate its a 15 yard penalty. You're now kicking from the 20 yard line. It definitely makes a difference in a game depending on who the team is.

I would love it if we stole DeSean from Philly.
