Default How long will it take for Bey Bey to take Gaffney's starting spot?

It appears that Royal has now settled into a real comfort zone at the slot WR spot in this system and Lloyd has made enough big plays to cement himself at one of the outside spots. Gaffney on the other hand has been half and half. He hasn't been bad but he hasn't been any kind of a force at the other starting WR spot. Given Bey Bey's performance today and the fact that his natural ability absolutely dwarfs that of Jabar Gaffney.....how long do you think it will be until Thomas takes his starting spot?

well I guess that would mean Lloyd would move over to the X and Thomas would take the Z right?

My guess is until Thomas gets comfortable with the playbook.

Im gonna say 4-5 weeks until he is in the starting lineup

I agree with what you are saying 100 percent but the way the offense uses WR I wonder if it even matters at this point who starts and who plays where.

You can have Reggie Bush's tainted Heisman, Roh.

Actually, I hope you are right. I'd like to see him starting as soon as possible. He's on a totally different plane, talent wise, than our other recievers. I was getting ticked off when they were taking him out of the game. This kid is great to watch and he's a guy that people will have to scheme for.

And he was a beast. Big, fast, and quick. Pretty rare to have all that. But it was his first start so you can't take that performance for anything, right?

Bey Bey is going to cause opposing D's to have a safety deep to shadow him. single coverage isn't gonna get it done.

That will open up the whole offense for Royal underneath and give Moreno some room to run.

It feels to me like the passing offense is complete and firing on all cylinders. The running game feels lethargic, but I chalk that up to the O-line's youth/injuries.

He's only been healthy for one game. And now that he's "on film", he won't be able to surprise people anymore.

He looked AWESOME, but I just think we should check expectations until he puts a few games together in a row.

Remember his healing ankle, I'm glad they spelled him. In fact I was wishing they would but in Tebow late in the 4th to give Orton a rest on a record hot day in Denver.

Yeah because film makes up for size and speed. Dude he didn't run special routes or anything. Thats what is amazing! But hey downplay a potential damn fine player.

Well, hopefully he can continue to dominate now that teams know who he is and he won't be sneaking up on anyone after today.

Which will make the ENTIRE offense better when DCs say "WHOA, we better watch out for this kid".

Exactly what you want as an OC.

Has to be the case... his skill set resembles those of LLoyd, and Orton has a decent level of comfort with Gaffney you don't want to take away

While I feel Bay Bay will still receptions from all three starters. I also feel that Gaff has too much knowledge of this system and finds ways of getting into the open holes.
