freakofthesouth Posted March 12, 2006 Share Posted March 12, 2006 I had this though buried in a RE thread, but felt it necessary to post: I hope that we didn't give RE a bigger contract than Santana... If we didn't, then I feel very good about these moves. RE is explosive, just like Santana. We loved the production we got out of him last season, and we are seeking out the same thing in RE...and also in B-LLoyd. If one stat for WRs shows 'explosiveness,' then it would be YPC. By borrowing the graphic from Kevin B.'s sig, we can see this illustrated (below). We heard last season how we were attracted to Moss and Patten because of their YPC. I feel like Pittsburg wasn't using RE to his potential, much like Moss wasn't used to his potential w/ the Jets. Give him more opportunities to make plays, and he will. Throw B-Lloyd in there, and we have a TON of talent roaming opposing teams' secondary. edit: apparently, I can't attach the same image twice, so there is no graphic here. But Santana had 17.7 last year, RE 15.9, Lloyd 15.3. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
