      Rod Smith 3 td
      Ashley Lelei 1 td
      Todd Devoe 1 td

      Total of 5 receiving tds from our WR after 8 games

      Kyle Johnson 4 Td
      Alexander 1 TD
      Carswell 2 TD

      Total of 7 receiving tds from other positions.

      It is great that we are spreading it out and keeping it unpredictable, but I would like more out of out WR group.

        I agree. We are more than a one deminsional team. We can shove it down your throat on the ground, and then hit anyone on a pass. We might not have "stars" but we have hard working blue collar type players that get the job done.

          Wide Receiver, by far.

              Yeah, if Ashley would have lived up to his potential then we wouldn't have this problem.

              He was NOT worth a first round pick.

                Good point. The best test for that is to think whether another team would trade their number 1 for a player right now. In Ashlie's case the answer is obviously "no" (except for the Redskins - Gibbs likes to dump those picks like they're pumpkins on Nov. 1)

                As for the weakest position, I realize it really isn't a position, but I'm still not comfortable with our kick coverage. I know when we're at home we kick a lot of them out of the end zone, but when Todd doesn't do that I still get nervous.

                  I agree. Who was the last great reciever we drafted? Lionel Taylor? I mean, c'mon, our 2 best recievers over the last 10 years have been Rod Smith and Ed McCaffery, one guy from the practice squad, and the other signed as a has-been free agent from the Giants. Nothing against those guys as I love them both and they were very productive, but at the same time, we were very lucky with both of them. Our reciever track record is worse than our DB drafts. Marcus Nash anyone? And while Lelie is brilliant at times, he's not a #1 WR. We really need to shore up this position in the off-season somehow.

                    From a statistical standpoint,we are 26th (i think) against the pass.And i know everyone has pointed out that we have gotten passed on more due to leads and strong run D.With that said,i would have to say either de-dt,or safety.Pressure from the defensive line is nice,but eventually you have got to start finishing the job.ie..sack.And having two run stoppers at safety is'nt helping that area much.

                      It's WR, I'd like to see more out of our group.

                      Rod is always the consistant one, but where do we go after that? Lelie has not shown much consistancy thus far.

                      More touchdowns would be nice, but hey, if we keep winning, I ain't complaining, we can have our O-line score all our TDs and if we're still winning, than so be it.

                        That is also a weak point. At what point do you say "Hey, we know they are going to pass 65% of the time but we still can't stop it?"

                        If our run D is so good, coupled with the fact that we get off to early leads forcing teams to pass, that should make our pass D better, since we KNOW they are going to throw. But alas, it is still one of the worst in the NFL.

                          Don't forget that many of those yards come at the end of the game. When we're playing the freaking prevent Defense. That's also a reason games are closer than they should be.
