    I thought we were looking for a tall receiver. We already have 1? Which way is it?

    Well we have 3 6'5" plus tight ends, as well as Washington who is 6'1" and Baker who is 6'3" and we kept him around all year so the must see something in him. And once again as was commented by Holmes, big doesn't mean good

I can't wait to watch this offense in action!
    Well put TG

    1. In regards to our tall TEs, ok yeah they're tall, but they're not the same as a tall athletic WR. They do provide big targets, but Sweed should have a bigger range of passes he can catch, since I'm sure he can jump alot higher than Heath and Spaeth.

    2. In regards to the fact that there are alot of great shorter WRs like Santana Moss and Steve Smith, we have Santonio Holmes for that, and Hines Ward. We have 2 short starters and 1 tall rookie WR. Always good to have a nice mix like that.

    3. I can't wait to see Hines, Holmes, Sweed, Miller, and Parker/Mendenhall all on the field. If the O-line can just be decent, that's a TON of weapons for Ben to use. Should be a really explosive offense.

    Its not that to figure out....Some TE's in the NFL were former power forwards when they played college ball...You might have heard of that one guy named Antonio Gates...He played power forward at Kent State....You just like to bitch about everything.....

    Did I say Gates was a great power forward....Plus I wasn't even talking about the NBA.....Just trying to explain that Gates and some other TE's in the NFL played power forward in college....So thats why some people call them power forwards.....You would be surprised how many TE's played that position for their college hoops teams...

    I don't even think they are saying they ARE power forwards, they are just saying they are the PF's of the NFL.
