I have been a fan for at least 20 years...So tell me why we have not had a REAL standout reciever WITH a complimentary #2??
I remember J.J. Birden, Willie Davis, Derrick Alexander and Joe Horn and FEW more. Although Horn was not THE go to guy and Alexander on the tail end of his career.
What about Sylvester Morris? Nothing.
Whoever takes the helm, or stays at the helm, needs to be sure that we get 2 more noteworthy recievers.
Oh..A couple of more things..With TG and DB, that is a great start but we have to have some SPEED to compliment and keep the defense stretched.
Well, the Pats, for their three SBs, never really had a speed guy. Neither did the Steelers (Randel El wasn't that speedy), Bucs, or Ravens.

Between Bradley, Bowe, and TG, we can probably make do for this season. The FA market is very thin for WRs, and Pioli isn't the type to spend big money on a WR anyway. And we have much bigger problems that we need to focus this draft on.
The playoffs is probably a two-year process (at least) for us anyway. We can't, unfortunately, fix all of the damage done to the Chiefs over one offseason. WR should probably wait until 2010.
