STL Wide Receiver Owners

How are you guys dealing with Bulger being out? How significantly does Holt's and Curtis' stock go down now that STL may go to the running game for the next 3 weeks?

wow, you're really trying to get down to the bottom of this. you didn't like my answer in the other forum? :*)

i think you really have to hold on to them for their potential value, and sit on them for now if you're able. jamie martin is poop.

Holt is a good enough receiver that he should be able to make up for some of the lower quality passing - he's still a good play because he can make things happen even when he's not being thrown to by a top-notch QB. Curtis, on the other hand, might suffer, as the Rams will probably be focused more on the ground game and when they do pass, they will probably pass to Holt who is the more experienced and athletic player who can better keep them from making mistakes.

Just trying to get a variety of opinions! I meant no offense! ;-)

I'm more worried with the coaching change than the injury.

I have both Action Jackson and Holt, so I suppose that I can't lose. ;-D
I'll still start Holt, though. I'd rather have him with a backup QB than a guy like Givens or Bryant.

I think the coaching change will benefit everyone in the long run.

A more balanced attack can only benefit Bulger's performance imo.

The quality of Bulgers attempts will go up even though the number of attempts will go down.

They were moving the ball nicely before Bulger went down.

With Martin in there I wouldn't expect too much out of the receivers.

Hopefully Bulger will be back to form after the bye.

I agree that the quality of Bulger's attempts (he's my QB) will go up with more production from Jacko.

Let's hope Martz is contemplating immediate retirement :-)

I agree, and this echoes what Bulger himself was quoted as having told Madden before the game. He was afraid that he'd be called on to throw too much and that it would hurt the team.

Martz is a mad scientist, with emphasis on the "mad." He could easily have screwed up that team.

And here's my hope that Bulger is back in form when he returns as well. I'm in the lead in my division right now and really need him back.
