Re: How does last year go if Wells and Co. stay?

Two thoughts on this: 1. Our receiving group was TERRIBLE last year (just ask any NFL scout). Minus Repp and Marriner it would have been a disaster. 2. Some of our games might have been closer with better defensive coaching/scheme but Wells would have found ways to lose them regardless (classic Wel...
