Second Receiver in Carolina?

I do think that experience will win out initially, but wouldn't be surprised in the least at year's end if youth wins out. Colbert did impress the staff early last year though with his ability to meet the challenge of learning an NFL offense, perhaps he will meet this challenge the same way.

I think a lot of it depends on Gardner. If he wakes up and decides to re-focus on football he should be the #2 guy. I think that's why he was brought in, they wanted a big physical receiver to balance out the attack. He could be a redzone vulture.

If he continues to play as uninspired football as his history indicates, then he will be a redzone threat who underproduces and Colbert will be the solid #2 guy.

Gardner? Sure hands? It's my understanding that his knack for dropping passes is why Seattle didn't persue him.


Since I don't watch Redskins games religously, maybe someone can validate?

Yeah, not exactly sure handed, sure to drop the ball more like it.
Well, he can catch the tough passes and is a good red zone option. But, it's the wide open passes he drops. I always liked rod he worked hard and is good down field blocker. He'll probably start the season as the #2 but will end up being a slot posession receiver. I wouldn't draft either colbert or gardner unless you have an incredible deep bench or a bad gambler.

Got to agree with that! ;-D

I'm pretty sure that the wideouts will mirror the New York Jets from three years ago.

Like the J-E-T-S, Smith and Colbert will stretch the field vertically (like Coles and Moss) but Gardner will come in on 3rd downs as well as some Red Zone formations, (Wayne Chrebet).

All in all, I would think Delhomme won't have to pass as much with the defense heathly again, i.e. Rucker, Buckner and the fact that the backfield is back to full strengh - at least to some degree! ;-D
