But one thing the addition of these WRs will do is move the chains. SD should actually see more opportunities overall, its up to Marty and Drew where those extra balls will go
That's what I was going to say. Any balls thrown to McCardell has the good possibility of stretching the offensive posession time, increasing the possibility for more passes to Gates.
I also agree that even though Keenan is new to the offense and isn't a huge threat, he will take away coverage from Gates.
All signs look good for Gates owners (yes I'm one, so I'm biased
), but only time will tell.
