... And now it's all the personal fault. So he had nothing to do with anything it's cause he had no receivers ?
This is correct. This receiving corps was a motley group reminiscent of an expansion team in the years before free agency allowed quality players to change teams. Then it got hurt and even worse players took their place.
No. 1 Holmes. Never fully back from Lisfranc injury, questionable attitude.
No. 2 Hill. Little output rookie year, was hoping for development. Nice first 3 games, then El Tanko.
No. 3 Kerley Very nice little player, not a number 1 and maybe not really a number 2
After that we get Clyde Gates who couldn't catch until his last game, when he achieved functionality only to immediately sustain a season ending injury. Then a call to Manpower yielded the subs, one of whom, David Nelson, began to show some life given time to get used to the offense.
TE Kellen Winslow did all right when he wasn't serving a suspension. Jeff Cumberland began to come around until he too got injured.
Rookie QB's need help, people to consistently make good plays for them to keep them from going off track. Anybody who says this crew fits that bill just isn't being honest.
I look forward to seeing Geno next year throwing to people he can have confidence in and watching those people respond. Unlike baseball, where you can just plug people into their position and let them play, a football team is a cohesive unit that must grow together beginning in training camp.
