Jennings : Driver :: Houshmanzadeh : C Johnson ?

Big difference here....Driver does not have the talent to be a #1 WR in the NFL, he was #1 by default because GB has not had anyone worth crap other then him since Walker went down Game 1, 2005. Chad Johnson has led the NFL in receiving for three years running, it is only a matter of time before he starts rolling again. This might be a down year for him from a fantasy perspective, but he is command respect in the real game. The Bengals are not like old TO and Randy Moss teams where there are no other options, so they still get tons of looks regardless of coverage.

Give me Jennings and Chad anyday. Jennings is the 04' Javon, and Chad will come on stong the rest of the way out. You don't have combos of 1300 yards and 10 td's for 4 years, and then not produde. He will.

Pretty sure Driver was still #1 with Javon there. Maybe not last year but before.

You can essentially take CJ completely out of a game with double coverage. Im not sure things will get better for CJ unless they change the plays or come up with new plays for him to get him more involved. He's not like TO or Moss who can break free of double coverage and still get open. Housh is the number option in Cinnci right now. And when C. Henry gets back, he may get the No. 2 type stats.

i love how many people are doubting CHAD JOHNSON now. i love it. if it was so easy to take him out of the game by simply doubling him, don't you think teams would have started years ago?

I hope you're right. I hope CJ can start getting the stats he put up the last few years, but it seems right now he's not getting the looks.

I guess Jennings can't be like Housh if he can't suit up. Hopefully that ankle isn't that bad and he can get back on the field soon.

Jennings did have 2 or 3 disturbing drops that game before he got hurt. They were quick slants and it looks like it hit him right in the hands. Favre didn't look too happy about it. I think Jennings can rebound though as long as he's healthy.

Driver can still do it. Even as the only legit receiver in the game in the second half, he still got open and made the grabs.

I think CJ and Driver are great. The thing is that with Housh and Jennings, both the Packers and the Bengals have really good other options so it's all about the number of looks and opportunities that have to be shared. With any of the recievers out of the picture, I think any one of these guys has the ability to step up and put up good numbers as the featured guy.

I just don't understand the "wait for CJ" to break out idea. It's week seven (mid point in the FF season) and Housh has outscored him every single week that they've played together.
How long do you wait? Week 10? Week 13? By that time, his "break out" will only be considered "that one good game" in a season of mediocracy.

EDIT: Sorry -- this post is full the ranting of an angst-ridden, fustrated Johnson owner. ;-)

I agree with you. I would rather have Jennings + CJ than Housh + Driver
A win next week and all is forgotten.
