Is this the best receiving corp since Peerless Price and Eric Moulds?

Recommended Posts

I think they are probably an average bunch of receivers. We still don't have a true #1 threat, but it should be WAY better than last year.

 

Amazing what you can build when you have cap space.

Watkins, Woods and Goodwin, if they were all focused, healthy, and mature.

Hogan was a pretty good #4

Once the hype has been established, it tends to stay.  Sammy is on his third team in going on his sixth season in the NFL; that averages two years per team which is not indicative of a "stud receiver."  If he can't be what was expected when he was drafted in 2014, he'll be nothing more than another bust.  He has the opportunity with the Chiefs in the Andy Reid offense and Mahomes as the QB.

 

 

I still marvel at the stupidity the Bills displayed to get him.

I want to see some packages with Brown, Foster, Beasley, Knox, and Singletary.  Brown and Foster will open up everything.  We know Allen has the arm, defenses must respect that.  I am picturing Beasley, Knox, and Singletary finding soft spots underneath

 

Of course Brown and Foster will be on the field at the same time for a number of plays but I still think they will also spend a lot of time

spelling each other to keep the deep threat pressure on the RCB and FS.  That's when Zay comes in on the other side.

 

I still predict (as of now) some heavy rotation in the WRs, more than we have seen in the past.

In hindsight, yes; it was a terrible move designed to prop up a failing EJ Manuel.

If you listen to Chris brown on one bills live when he talks about the bills recievers, you'd think this is the best wide reciever group in NFL history. I like Chris brown alot, but sometimes his homerism comes out. He was saying a short while back that this group is almost uncoverable. Cmon, really? I think they're upgraded for sure, but time will tell how good they are

Moulds was damn good and I don't think he ever got that much appreciation from a league wide perspective. It's unfortunate that we had inconsistency at QB when he was with us.

 

That being said, it's very tough to put him above the likes of Reed & Lofton.

Agreed, and please don't get what I meant twisted;  E-Mo was a STUD with us.  He's certainly in the top-5 ever at his position with the Bills.  Probably top-3 at WR (for his production while a Bill).  But, far and away, Reed is the best we've ever had.  And the Reed/Lofton combo as #1/#2 receiver, unmatched in my opinion.

I'd say Watkins, Woods, Goodwin and Hogan were better...all of them got sizeable contracts from other teams

Moulds is number two at the WR position for the Bills.

 

Remember, Lofton did most of his HOF work for Green Bay, while he had three productive seasons here.

Agree. Lofton isn’t really in the conversation, IMO. And Moulds could have had a better career than Reed too if he played with Kelly his who,e career instead of the clowns he was saddled with.

...certainly is greater potential on paper versus MANY previous years and a QB who can use them......BUT....steady as she goes buds.......too early for irrational exuberance only to be let down....

I fail to understand why people still hold to the fallacy that Sammy Watkins was a”stud” receiver.  His stats never upheld the hype. 

I mean his first 2 years were better than Reed's first two years and he played half of his first season hurt. He's also averaged more YPG than reed over his career. Different era's yada, yada but Watkins is far from the bum many on this board would like to believe.

His career has been largely derailed by injuries, but the talent and production has always been there when healthy. I think he'll play a massive role for the chiefs this year.

He was far better than Lofton ever was if you're talking Bills careers. It's not even close. I know it's easy, everyone loves guys from those years, but Lofton wasn't that great as a Bill. His prime was in GB.

Lofton gave us a couple of great years. Paired with Reed, made for a great combo. Seems to me, that it took Moulds a few years to get his legs under him.

Reed made his bread, and butter over the middle.

Moulds?

Failing EJ Manuel would have the best qb rating on the Bills right now. 😉

 

And the answer to this question is hell no.  The Watkins group was better.  So were Evans and TO.  Hell, until proven different, the SJ group was better.  We have a bunch of 2,3, and 4s.  Hopefully, we have a better qb than those groups.  Great qbs prop up their receivers.

What you said has validity, but this is a sports forum...

Big Fitz supporters during his time here pointed out he really didn't have much help at the WR slots.  Imo it was a fair defense for Fitzpatrick 

 

Even then for now I'd still take Stevie J, Donald Jones, David Nelson/Brad Smith/etc...  over this group.

So you would rather have a failing EJ Manuel than a rising Josh Allen?  Maybe didn't understand your first sentence...

 

Still a lot to be determined with the WR corps this year, and yes, we do have a bunch of 2, 3, and 4s but that may be enough; I am in the camp that you don't necessarily need a stud WR1 to be a complete team.  Agree that a great QB props up the WRs, but so does an offensive scheme that can effectively utilize 2s, 3s, and 4s.

Moulds and Price were much better than our current group of WRs.  Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins were also better.  

Moulds and Price combination were made better by that one year of Drew Bledsoe.  Then they came down crashing.

It's amazing the narratives throughout training camp.

 

I remember last year there was absolutely no way the trio of McCarron, Peterman, and Allen would be worse than Tyrod and they could easily match the 9 win record from the year before. 😅

 

 

 

 

Please.

 

A few (very few), may have said that, particularly folks still having Kool-Aid still in their systems from picking Allen.

 

What 95% of us actually had as a narrative was that cutting Tyrod despite the fact that he was likely to be - THAT YEAR - the best on the roster made total sense due to Tyrod's ridiculous cap hit of $16 mill and the fact that we weren't going to have a good year anyway in 2018. Cutting Tyrod was the way to go in the context of the rebuild. And again, there are always folks with rose-colored glasses riveted to their craniums, but last year for the sane among us was always likely to be a pretty bad year, not to be worried about as part of the rebuild.
