Re: Morgan Says He Will Play the Z

The Z position was played by Gaffney last year, and by Moss in 2010, for point of reference.

Re: Morgan Says He Will Play the Z

I just don't see Morgan or Garcon as major contributors early in the season. They're new to the team and scheme. By mid-season Garcon especially should be racking up the yards (to justify his contract), but Mike and Kyle need to help Griffin by putting Moss in the lineup for his familiarity w/ the scheme and routes.

Yeah. Those idiots - they should never have sighned Garcon, but just kept Gaffney. <sarcasm font off>

Re: Morgan Says He Will Play the Z

Let's not forget about Leonard Hankerson. He could overtake Morgan as the #2 receiver and end up with more production out of any of the wide receivers. Morgan is currently the #2 only because Hankerson is still rehabbing his hip and he hasn't had any offseason activity with the offense yet.

Yeah I agree. That's his motivation for putting up numbers, is so his contract can be justified? He doesn't have any motivation to prove he's elite? Or that he can get it done without Peyton? Or to help his team win?

Honestly if Garcon didn't put up any stats this entire year and yet made the game winning catch in the Super Bowl, I wouldn't give two shits about his lack of production in the regular season.

Remains to be seen on Garcon. He's no more an elite or # 1 WR today than Gaffney, except that Garcon has a curious number of fumbles for his short career. But it's really about the opportunity cost of Garcon's contract.

Re: Morgan Says He Will Play the Z

Here we go again with the fumbles... he has 3 in his career on 188 catches.

Moss had 3 in 2010 alone, on 93 catches.

I remember 2010 and Moss did have the fumbles...I even felt like he mailed it in a few of those games. He needs to focus on his consistency as does Garcon.

Re: Morgan Says He Will Play the Z

3 fumbles on 188 catches is not a lack of focus at all.

Re: Morgan Says He Will Play the Z

Garcon makes alot of yds after the catch , something we have had very little of the past few years . I think we are in good shape at WR , Im looking forward to seeing if Robinson ( 2nd yr ) can use that speed to make the roster at WR and K/PR ? I would not be suprised to see N.Paul make an inpact at both WR and TE this year .

Garcon is a number 1 and he'll prove it with a pro bowl year

A lot of it has been the lack of any QB that can hit the WR fast AND in stride. I can't remember the last time I watched a Redskins WR catch a bullet in stride.

Agree, and I tend to think this is closer to reality than a a lot of people. He put up nice numbers last year on a bad team with Curtis Painter throwing the ball. Plus we've got Moss, Hankerson, Morgan, and some good TE's that will give Garçon plenty of single coverage. I'm not saying he's an upper echelon #1 WR, but I think he's very capable of pro-bowl numbers.

Bingo. Our guys have all at one point or another shown they could make the catch, but we didn't have a QB who could make most of the throws. I don't think that's an exaggeration. Now, according to more and more observers, we have a QB who can make almost every throw. This offense could really fly even in it's first year. I think we have the talent, and hopefully the scheme comes together this year too.
