Kinda my thoughts as well....honestly, I wouldn't want ANY of the Oakland receivers as anything more than a late round flyer to be my 5th WR or something. Definitely not a player I would want to have to depend on from week to week. Keep in mind that no matter who they have back there throwing the ball, they do indeed need time to throw for anything productive to occur. Quite frankly, I have no idea what Culpepper was thinking going to the place he's most likely going to be hit more than anywhere else he could have gone....whoever the starter is there is going to have a rough year.
Well from what I hear, McCown is likely to start the season, Culpepper could step in at some point, and Russell will probably finish the season, so maybe they plan to divide the load between 3 different guys to keep them healthy. Maybe QBBC is the next big trend once RBBC runs its course
But seriously, Curry seems to be as good as any other late-round flier pick right now. I don't like him as much as some of the others because that offense is going to struggle to put up 17 pts per game, so even if he plays out of his mind, his production will be inherently limited by the ineptitude of the Oakland offense.
(on the other hand, you saw what happened to the Saints offense when they got rid of Aaron Brooks
