Re: Our Offense Going Forward

I still worry about our lack of quality outside receivers. We desperately missed having jump-ball receivers last year. I'm not sure we have really addressed that. Thin at best. The WR group is an area of concern. 2012 we didn't blow the world away with receivers but we had several solid guys. Austi...

If we wanted to get into the world of counterfactuals, had Collette stuck around we could have had a much better team and our current view of Duryea could be very different. Though eventually Duyrea would likely have been exposed for the mediocre coach that he is sooner or later.
