    I thought our receiver corp was going to be thin and not particularly talented. Kirk is turning in to quite an adept WR and Fitzgerald is getting targeted often and making the most of his opportunities (as usual). Fitzgerald, in particular, isn't just being targeted for short possession balls but deeper shots and for a guy that didn't seem to have the speed to separate anymore is being schemed into wide open holes in the secondary. Byrd is emerging as a completely legitimate #3

    KK's scheme and Murray may keep Fitzgerald in Cardinals red for several more years.

    The most non rookie looking rookie I've seen in a cards uni in quite some time.

    Yeah extremely sure handed guys. Murray threw a lot of balls to covered guys that nobody would have blamed them for dropping. Receievers have been phanomenal.

    Would have expected Isabella to be a contributing as a 2nd round draft pick though. Had really high hopes on him especially with DK still on the board.

    don't really see Murray having time behind that line to exploit Isabella over the top

    The fact that Isabella and Butler (IR) are not on field shows that our WR crew is pretty well stocked. MUCH TOO SOON to give up on anyone even if they are limited this year.

    I'm so loving CK right now. He reminds me of OBJ the way he runs. Fluid with not a lot of wasted movement. Maybe it's the 13, but him and Kyler have a potential to be a problem in this league for many years.

    If you put four guys on the field over and over, you're going to get some matchups, especially in this offense. We have two guys in Byrd and KeeShawn who are overqualified to be #4s and two guys who are probably below average #2s in Kirk and Fitzgerald.

    Crabtree only played 19 snaps yesterday. When he's all the way back, we'll have three #2s, which might be enough for this year.

    Below Average #2's? What do you consider an average #2?

    Byrd has really impressed for such low expectations of him..

    Tyrell is with the Raiders now I believe, and with AB gone he is now a #1. I guess I'm not sure I follow what you consider a #1 and #2 (No pun intended).

    I don't see how those guys are any better than Fitz (Fitz is currently top 10 in the league for receptions and receiving yards)? I'd put Kirk right in there as an average #2 WR.

    Unfortunately id have to agree to an extent. I dont know if Cardinals have a great #1 but behind that theyre great. I think fitz and kirk are very good #2s and crabtree a solid 2 as well. They have another 2-3 very good #3s.

    Low on top flight talent but plenty of talent to get the job done.
